    Thriving on Discomfort with Nicole McKinney

    Thriving on Discomfort with Nicole McKinney

    Nicole challenges us to think about how we want to be remembered, how we’re going to make this world a better place, and how will we leave it better when we’re no longer here.  Her father’s death was the impetus for her Courage Up moment where she chose to be silent and look around to really  what she is passionate about. Leaning into your gut and pursuing what your gut was telling you.
     
    Being familiar with discomfort has propelled her to do the things that are really hard.  When she’s uncomfortable, she knows she’s on the right path.
