    Nicky Pattinson, Speaker

    Nicky Pattinson, Speaker

    Nicky Pattinson is a huge inspiration to me. A straight talker, Nicky is a maverick who shares the story of how she navigated decimation and came out the other side, and who now elevates individuals and businesses so that they reconnect to their genius. 

    In this episode, we talk about what drives Nicky, how we are all someone and how to embrace who we truly are, and why the pivotal moments in our lives teach us what we're good at. We discuss Nicky's need for validation and its roots in her childhood, and how she got back up after the death of her son, Jackson.  

    Nicky uses some adult language in this episode.
