Meet the CEO + Founder


Natalie Hughes founded Miss Independent in 2017 and launched with a podcast that features conversations with women in leadership and business.

The popularity of the podcast led Natalie to expand the brand into a blog and online learning tool. This great response further fuelled Natalie’s passion to help women make their best career and business decisions.

A seasoned business woman herself and non-executive company director, Natalie is as comfortable sitting around a boardroom table strategising about big business as she is behind a microphone and thriving in the entrepreneurial world.

You can trust that Natalie will steer you toward a career and business that is both fulfilling and financially rewarding.  Marketing, Strategy and Finance has been her thing for 20+ years and she is renowned for taking businesses to the next level.

She’s held leadership positions in male dominant industries and understands first hand the trials and challenges of being seen, heard and appreciated for your strengths and unique qualities.

Natalie is committed to providing you with career and business development resources that will help you think differently, work differently, and feel in control of your own destiny.

She is all about helping you connect with the real you to build your own work story. One that is meaningful to you and makes you feel alive and happy every single day.



Drake, Alicia Keys, Beyonce, RnB anything!


Vietnamese or Japanese cuisine.  Yum!


Meditation when I wake and then a Barre or Pilates class.  I love to relax with a nice breakfast after exercising. I sit with a pot of green tea and catch up reading emails from sites I’ve subscribed to and enjoy.  Every other weekend I’m with my 2 sons, which often means going to their basketball games or an AFL game.  I’m an avid football supporter and can’t help but give the umpires assistance with their decisions.


Thailand with my girlfriends that I went to high school with.  Can’t wait.  Look out Thailand!

Natalie would love to support you and your career.
