    Embracing Fear to Birth a New Vision

    "...the unknown is very very scary. But you know what's more scary? Living an unfulfilled life, not doing all the things that you want to do." ~ Dr. Nicole Grimes.

    People are often afraid of the unknown, but that doesn't have to be a bad thing. Dr. Nicole Grimes shares her story about how she learned to embrace fear and uncertainty when it came time for her career change from academia into small business ownership. She found success by pushing through with what made sense even when she experienced fear, doubt, imposter syndrome and a pandemic.
