We had the good fortune of connecting with Nicole Jackson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nicole, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I wanted more than what I was getting on my 9-5. I knew there was way more to life than what my job offered. And I knew I couldn’t get there by continuing to work for someone else. They dictate how much they pay you, when you go to lunch, when you clock in and out and when you can take vacation. As much as I like structure I didn’t like other people having control over my life. I had to do the inner work and discover me and what I wanted to do with my life that would also generate a lot of revenue. All of that led me to starting my own business.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am a reinvention and self-development strategist. I help women, who have lost themselves along the way, discover who they are and walk in the fullness of it. I believe once you discover who you are, you become unstoppable.
Being an entrepreneur is far from easy. There are days I want to give up and throw in the towel, but I can’t. The desire in me won’t allow me to quit. Although it’s not easy, it is worth it.
I’ve learned you truly have to do it, anyway. Regardless of how you feel, you have to choose to keep going. If you stop, you’ll never make it to where you want to be.
I have a desire to help women discover who they are, because I was once miserable. I did everything “right” but I wasn’t satisfied. I felt stuck. I felt things were never going to get better. I was living a life that I didn’t enjoy.
I began to do the inside work and discovered who I was in the process. Once you know who you are, you become unstoppable. You’re clear on what you want and you go after it. You no longer feel stuck and unfulfilled. You begin living a life that you love, doing exactly what makes you happy.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’ve worked with some really incredible people who have really helped me get to where I am I’m my business and developing a new mindset. I’ve worked with Anthony AJ Joiner, Mahdi Woodard and Jack and Marshawn Daniels.
