Creative Rising Episode 308

[INTERVIEW]

Natalie Franke co-founded the Rising Tide Society in 2015 out of a deep personal need for community with other creative entrepreneurs.

She felt desperately alone and knew that others must feel the same way, too.

Since then, the Rising Tide Society has become a cornerstone for the creative community, but Natalie’s journey transformed when she required surgery to remove a benign brain tumor and subsequently walked through a journey of infertility to have her son, Huey.

In this intimate interview, Natalie shares how facing these struggles deeply transformed her identity in surprising ways, and how she came face to face with the true meaning of community in a way she never thought possible.

Hearing Natalie’s story will change the way you view competition, legacy, and community in powerful and transformative ways.
