Your Business Mirrors Your Life—and You Can Change It!: Nicole Lewis-Keeber on the Your Messy Brilliance™ Show
I’m honored to bring you this edition of the Your Messy Brilliance™ Show with my new friend, Money Mindset Master Nicole Lewis-Keeber.
I met Nicole at the Wisdom 2.0 conference in San Francisco earlier this year. I was immediately struck by her clarity, wisdom, and compassion—which are perfect for helping entrepreneurs understand their unique stories and release unconscious blocks.
Nicole has a background in therapy and life coaching. Using a conversational, engaging, humor-infused approach to complex challenges, her talks and coaching programs guide business owners, coaches, and healers to reveal and release their barriers to having a business they love and that loves them back. Nicole explains that these blocks always have origins in clients’ past experiences.
“Our biggest teacher is our self,” she notes, “and our businesses are playgrounds for the choices we make.”
We talked about Nicole’s twists and turns through her own business, and how her challenges in childhood inspired her to understand the nature of people and what motivates us and makes us shine. She also shed light on what it means to get to the bottom of our belief systems so that we can move beyond our trauma.
I hope you enjoy our conversation, which also inspired me to remember that resilience is the gift of our trauma—and that it’s always possible to shift your relationship to your business and to yourself!
