Married for 6 years with a blended family of 4 girls, 2 boys and 3 grand children. My purpose has always been to help others in entrepreneurship and personally in their lives. Being an entrepreneur for over 10 years turning a hobby into a lucrative business changed in December 2022 when business doors closed due to be diagnosed with breast cancer. The journey in helping others did not stop it has been magnified. On good days and bad days I have been transparent on my journey of Praying, Processing and Journaling. Although I don’t always understand I trust God and this process that will be a blessing to myself, my family and others. Journaling has helped and I will have a special surprise for you soon that will help you on your journey. Nicole is also a published author of Always Remember Never Forget Grief Journal and Conversations with God (a journal for spiritual growth).
