Each of us are destined for big things, it's not that just some of us can make a difference. It’s that in order to live a life operating in your full potential you have to be bold, courageous, and more than willing to take massive action.

Insightful, thought-provoking, and makes me want to take action!
I truly appreciated the authenticity of this podcast! I had never really considered core values as an important “feature” in a relationship. I’ve heard of other couples lining up their core values, but for whatever reason, the way Nicole and Brian shared about it on this episode unlocked some things for me and showed me how couples can grow together. I look forward to getting married and am grateful to have this info filed in my brain for when that time comes.
I am loving this Podcast..
Thank you Nicole, you are a great host. The topics are relevant and definitely motivational. I have the podcast episodes on repeat 🤗.
It is very refreshing to hear that most men aren’t crazy when we think it’s possible for women to take care of themselves especially when they have support at home. I thought that this conversation and the topics touched are some that a lot of women need to hear. I think that the amount of gems dropped by all parties that participated in this episode would be extremely beneficial to women both single and with families. Please give episode 59 a listen.
