Feeling frustrated and alone, Natalie Brooks started posting on Instagram about her struggles as a dyslexic adult in the workplace.

She soon realized that her experiences resonated deeply with dyslexic adults around the world -- and it inspired her to expand her social media following into a global online community!

Through her company, Dyslexia in Adults, Natalie has built a supportive and collaborative community where dyslexic adults discuss the challenges and strengths of their dyslexia.

During this episode, you will hear Natalie talk about:

  • How a working environment that benefits dyslexic employees can also benefit everyone at work
  • Her own struggles with self-doubt and low self-confidence at work
  • Why she decided to share her struggles on social media, and how that led her to create a supportive online community for dyslexic adults
  • How she handles her imposter syndrome when it comes to talking about her company
  • Her perspectives on common dyslexic strengths
