Natasha: You’re not trying to be a different person. You’re trying to be the most positive version of yourself so that people understand that this positivity isn’t another person or mask I’m putting on. It’s within you. It’s just you have to release it.

Erik: It’s easy to talk about the successes, but what doesn’t get talked about enough is the struggle. My name is Erik Weihenmayer.

Natasha will be leading a women’s track session at our No Barriers Summit this June.

Erik: Natasha, we’re really excited that you’re going to be at our No Barriers Summit, first of all, in June. It’s really exciting to have you there working with everyone but in particular the women’s track and helping women who are trying to break through barriers and become entrepreneurs and figure out their way forward. It’s so great to have role models like you that are there mentoring and as pioneers showing people the way forward. What are you going to talk about? What are you going to do with our community?

Natasha: I don’t want to give away too much. Everyone’s got to-
