What's this blog series all about? Let me satiate your curiosity :) I decided as part of my book launch campaign to feature 28 holistic souls - 1 every day leading up to my 28th birthday on December 8th, which is also the official launch date.

GAHH! Maria, Maria. You are such a HUGE part of this project, I cannot thank you enough. Maria and I connected a few years ago through mutual friends and have continued our relationship to this day. She's been a huge LUX CHIX supporter since the first conference we hosted in 2015 and spoke at one of the OASIS retreats in 2016. Both of us were also part of the 2016 Face of Siegel Jewelers model competition, which I am elated to say she WON! Maria is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Her story is inspiring and she is the epitome of Bee-ing BADASS and Brilliant. I began working with her as a coaching client earlier this year with plans to write a book.

I worked with Maria's publishing team through The ME Marketing Agency to get this book out of my head and on to paper. She kept me steady the whole process and made everything come together behind the scenes. Maria, I am so grateful to you and your entire team, to Damaris, Kay and Jason for all of your editing and layout help. For working like CRAZY through Thanksgiving to make this launch take place on time. I couldn't have done it without you. From my heart of gold to yours, thank you so much - you have made my dream of being an author come true and will help to inspire thousands of souls around the world. Be sure to connect with Maria at her NEW website:


1. Nicole's definition of BADASS and Brilliant encompass: passion and thinking for yourself. First, what is your passion? Second, can you share one example of how your passion has guided you to think for yourself?

1) To help individuals fulfill their full potential. To help experts create a brand, get published and profit. 

2) My passion has help me to think for myself by owning my results. By taking responsibility for my results, feeling responsible to serve others and helping them create a legacy, and knowing that I'm making a true difference in the world by using my gifts and talents. 

2. Nicole choose to highlight the dwindling honeybee population and its affects on the aspect of global agriculture and human existence. No bees, no food. No food, well? You get the picture. What's one holistic cause you would like to bring more awareness to?

To take care of nature, especially animals.  

3. Nicole suggests in order to create success on your terms, one must develop two fundamental skill-sets: inner peace and confidence. What technique or practice do you recommend to develop inner peace? Lastly, what's your definition of confidence? 

1) To have self awareness, check your emotions and feelings often and go deeper to figure out why you feel the way you do, then forgive, learn and love yourself and others. 

2) Confidence is to have grit to take imperfect action, and know that there are no failures, only  results. 

So grateful to feature 28 other BADASS and Brilliant souls!
