Tribe Q&A: 10 Questions With Natalie Balusek, Digital Strategy Manager At Tribu

Natalie, Strategy Manager and Account Manager | Tribu Digital Marketing

Each month we will ask a different tribe member 10 questions so that you can get to know more about their backgrounds, passions, and interests.

In part two of our #MeetTheTribe Q&A Series, we’re sitting down with Natalie Balusek, who joined the tribe at the beginning of the year and brings a wealth of experience with her!

1. Q) Hi, Natalie. Where are you from?

I was born and raised in San Antonio, which I’m very proud of! I love this city.

2. Q) Where did you go to college, what did you study and why?

I went to Texas State University and got my Bachelors Degree in public relations, with a minor in fashion merchandising. I’m a people person and so I really enjoy helping businesses achieve their goals through public perception and messaging.

3. Q) What would you say is your best skill?

Connecting with people and building relationships.

4. Q) What do you like to do outside of work?

Hang out with my friends, eat good food, see Beyonce in concert. I also loooove to travel.

5. Q) What are some small things that make your day better?

Lily bug, my pug. Sean, my husband. Having coffee by myself in the morning you know that euphoric 30 minutes where you’re just sitting there, existing?

Oh and Music, I love starting my day off with music. And just saying hello and smiling to people.

6. Q) Are there any movies, podcasts, or tv shows that you recommend?

I recommend a podcast called ‘My Favorite Murder’ shout out to Jessica (Web Designer at Tribu) as she introduced to me that. For TV shows, I would recommend the reboot of ‘One Day At a Time’ on Netflix.

7. Q) What is the best book you’ve ever read?

It’s not the best book I’ve ever read, but it’s the one that made the biggest difference Girlboss by Sophia Amoroso. It has great little nuggets of information and it’s easy to digest. I found it really inspiring.

8. Q) What’s next on your bucket list?

Visit New York. When I was little I wanted to be a fashion writer at Elle, but as I soon realized you have to go to New York to do that!

My husband and I had plans to visit in 2012, but then Hurricane Sandy hit so we had to give it a miss. We plan on going this year for our anniversary.

9. Q) What are you looking forward to in the coming months?

Moving into our new house. We purchased a home in December, and we’re making a few renovations and I’m looking forward to finally moving in!

10. Q) What is your favorite thing about Tribu?

My favorite thing about Tribu is the creative atmosphere, and knowing that I’m actually making a difference for both Tribu and our tribe partners. And working with one of my best friends, Sara!

Stay tuned for part three of our #MeetTheTribe Q&A Series coming up soon!
