The smartest investment to make in your 20’s…and again and again the rest of your life

So here I am 7 years after the break down, 5 years after finding Molly and deciding to launch a baby shoe boutique, 2 months into Elevate. I don’t have all the answers, but I have a couple things that are more important.

Talking Desires with Danielle LaPorte

One of my favorite parts of The Holiday Council is sharing the interviews I’ve been doing with inspiring women from around the web. This year I thought long and hard about who I wanted to talk to — I wanted women who seemed to manifest true magic in their lives, who had killer years, who were really embracing joyful devotion to their dreams.

So I made some big asks. And I got some big beautiful yeses.

Why is being yourself so damn hard?

One of the toughest things you can do these days is “be yourself” in a world that wants you to be so many different things, all at the same time.

Nicole: On the Record and Oversharing

It’s totally bittersweet for me, but I think this was my most favorite week of the whole season! It was so much fun to see the questions my fellow Season 7 rockstars came up with and I had a blast answering them. You may learn a few things about me that you didn’t want to know and for that I don’t really apologize…I’m quirky and I’m told its a pretty lovable trait. ENJOY!

An Exciting New Year of Possibilities

Maybe I won’t accomplish everything on my list in one year, but I plan to take full advantage of all the support I have. This is my year, and I’m going to rock it!

Paying it Forward to Heal the Soul

I know I didn’t lose my daughter in the tragedy, but I lost a little more of my faith in humanity. I’m hopeful that by continuing to be grateful for the good things in my own life, and sharing that goodness with {at least} 26 others, I can honor the 26 amazing lives that were taken in a senseless, evil act.

So much Inspiration, Self-Love and Authenticity

The last few weeks I’ve experienced quite a range of emotions – from soul-aching sadness to heart-melting happiness. It has been quite a ride, but I’ve never felt more alive than I do right now.

The Peace that Comes from Naming your Passion

I want to be a model of a woman who loves herself, who finds joy in ordinary places, who celebrates her individuality – and I want to pay it forward.

Saying Goodbye to an Old Friend

Losing someone you haven’t really talked to in over 15 years is a really weird thing. I almost feel like I’m not allowed to be sad because I didn’t really “know” her anymore. But at the same time, for four very important years in my life, she was one of my best friends.

WANTED: Hobbies

Somewhere along the way, I feel like my hobbies became “interests” – things I enjoyed, but didn’t actually do. When did this change happen?
