From Homelessness to Running a Multi-Million Dollar Business with Natasha Miller

Do you use past trauma and hardship as an excuse for holding back, or as a reason to rise higher? Natasha Miller suffered through abuse and homelessness throughout her childhood but fed the flame inside her to slowly move forward towards a brighter future.  


From a homeless shelter for youth to the Inc. 5000, Natasha has an entrepreneur’s tenacity that helped her break free from an abusive childhood, the irreversible decisions of her parents that left her transient, and the grittiness that has followed her through growing her multi-million dollar business.
