I fell into entrepreneurship because I wanted the joy and fulfillment that comes with doing work I love, on my own terms.
Over the years, I was forced to ask myself some tough questions—and make some tough decisions—which helped me to define who I am, what I wanted, and how to push past my fear to attain and pursue my purpose.
I figured things out by trial and error, plus owning my own professional development has helped me thrive. Seeing every experience as an opportunity for continuous improvement, I was able to quickly identify and develop strategic solutions to achieve bottom line results.
Now, I apply my skills to empower diverse professionals and entrepreneurs to move the needle, providing them the toolkit—communications strategy, marketing, branding, media relations, and clarity to flourish.
I launched Nicole Williams Collective, a boutique communications and event consulting firm specializing in media, culture and communications to create positive change. NWC works to discover value, refine messages, tell brand and career stories, and create cultures that value diversity & inclusion.
Why I do what I do
I believe that we’re all created with unique gifts and talents, which aren’t meant to be kept secret. In fact, I believe the world benefits when these gifts and talents are shared. I get real joy and fulfillment helping others reimagine who they can be and the impact they can have on the world. One of my client said it best… “she skillfully facilitated our coaching sessions to empower me to unearth my inner genius.”
