Let’s get personal.
Klassy Network founder, Natalie Rogers, started the "Pro YOU" movement because of her own personal experience. Now, she is passionate about sharing her story, highlighting other women’s stories, and getting REAL about why "Just be YOU" Is what Klassy Network is all about.
Natalie says, “Growing up, I was never the kid that raised her hand in class. It was fear of judgment that paralyzed me from wanting the spotlight on me.”
You may not believe this is the same person that started her first business at the age of 18 and eventually became the face of her own ecommerce brand. She makes showing up on Instagram every day to provide business tips and a BTS glimpse at the life of a young female entrepreneur look easy, but she didn’t start out confident and bold. It took serious reflection and a shift in mindset to make her the woman she is today.
When Natalie started her first business, it required her to be in the forefront, to be “the boss” with all eyes on her. She realized, as she struggled with her visible role as a leader, that she had experienced these same struggles throughout her entire young life.
She reflected on the time she dropped out of chorus because she didn’t want to be on stage in front of everyone, as well as the time she declined the position of Captain of her soccer team just so she wouldn’t have to feel as though people were perceiving her as “bossy”. She knew that these pivotal events were proof that she had held herself back all along.
She explains, “I knew I had the right answer in class, that I enjoyed singing in chorus, and that I could be a good leader of my soccer team. I never doubted my capabilities. I just feared the perception and judgment of others.” Until…..
“My passion collided with my fear and I had no other choice than to work through the barriers I was creating for myself, get tunnel vision, and focus on ME!”
Natalie’s passion for being an entrepreneur and desire to continue to follow her dreams, meant that she was going to have to face all of those insecurities from the past, dig deep, and get REAL with herself and all of YOU…..
The result…..the Pro-YOU Movement.
Through this movement, she wants to inspire other women that may have a similar feelings, to Just be YOU, unapologetically, unequivocally, unmistakably the YOU that you’ve always wanted to be. If she can, so can YOU!
Natalie now embraces authenticity, feels empowered, builds stronger relationships, capitalizes on more opportunities, and has a clear vision (unobstructed by what she is afraid others think) that leads to a more successful business and life.
“When you can confidently love who you are and just be YOU, that’s when you win.”
This life lesson is what inspired the movement that is part of everything we do at Klassy Network.
We want YOU part of it. Stay tuned for highlights from other women’s Just be YOU! stories.
We strive to create eyewear that helps women "see" themselves differently, to give them confidence to just be themselves.
Check out what some of our Klassy ladies say about our products.
As an MRI tech, my job consists of staring at a computer screen for most of the day. I used to go to bed with a headache and then I wouldn’t even be able to sleep.
I had multiple eye doctor visits, thinking I needed some readers only for them to tell me my vision was completely fine. Then I learned about blue light. I didn’t need readers, I needed blue blockers. So I jumped on and bought my fave ones from Klassy Network. My eyes don’t hurt from staring at MRI scans all day anymore!
