Seamless Episode 7: Lady On A Mission

Laura Nestler knows a thing or two about achieving a work/life balance, and it’s because she’s blended the two together. Seamlessly.

Prior to her current position as Director of Community at Duolingo, Nestler worked with both Yelp and HoneyBook, connecting costumers around the globe with these companies’ products. She designed the infrastructure that allowed Yelp to jump off internationally so that you can search for that perfect day spa while abroad with your in-laws.

Nestler is also responsible for assisting with HoneyBook’s partnership with The Rising Tide Society, which connects creative entrepreneurs internationally with the resources they need to build their businesses.

In this episode, BF intern Nicole Fallert speaks with Nestler about leadership, the power of language and always asking yourself one question: “Why?”

Seamless Episode 5: She’s Rising

Have you ever been doing what you love, but felt lonely while doing it? Natalie Franke was a successful wedding photographer after college, but she lacked the resources and support necessary to build her brand. Creative entrepreneurship felt isolating for her, so Natalie decided to close the gap between her passion and community.

She started the Rising Tide Society in 2015 and the organization now hosts chapters internationally to foster support for creatives. Rising Tide Society is also a part of HoneyBook, which offers management software for creative businesses. Natalie serves as the head of community for HoneyBook, and regularly posts video blogs and some very motivational Instagram stories. The University of Pennsylvania graduate is now an educator, writer and community builder.
