Ep. 153 – Nicole Myden – Founder of the PR Concierge & PRpose Events

“So yeah, is it scary to take leaps? Yes. Is it scary to become truthful to yourself and look yourself in the mirror, in the eyes and say you are deserving of feeling freedom and joy, and you don’t have to sit in this system every day, or you don’t have to live here because everyone’s telling you you need to, or you don’t have to be with this person. Whatever the case for you individually that’s reflective to your journey, keep showing the universe that you are fearless and that you are willing to make leaps, because what I have gotten in return from this God above, and from this universe, is just nothing short of magic.”

Segment 2: (Length :08:00) – Talking with Nicole; Dealing with loss; Having more self-awareness; Bringing intention and purpose with your work; Not being afraid to pivot.

Nicole’s finer points:

  4. Having more intention and purpose with your work
  5. How we show up is how we will leave our legacy
  6. Not being afraid to pivot your business

And why I think I'm having the most fun right now in the journey is because I do have something that I'm good at, and I have something that I love to do, but I'm actually finding another way to stretch it even further and allow myself now to reach more people in a very intentional, purpose-driven way where I can still work with them in an intimate setting, but teach them also a lot of the fundamentals about what I do so that they also feel that they can be part of it.

Segment 3: (Length :10:00) – Actionable advice for the PR industry; Working your way up; Being humble; Not chasing money; Taking a leap of faith.

Nicole’s finer points: 

  1. What do you really want with your career or life’s work and why?
  2. Advice to entrepreneurs and those getting into entertainment and PR
  3. Understanding what PR really needs to accomplish for it’s clients
  4. Working your way up through learning and executing
  5. Less entitlement, more humbleness and learning.
  6. Don’t chase the money. It’s already there.
  7. Taking the leap and finding ultimate freedom

It doesn't have to happen overnight and it's not something that needs to happen by a certain time, but that to me is the root of becoming whole. And when you hit that mark, I believe you can then offer yourself to somebody as a life partner, you can do better work in the community, you can serve people more, you can do better work, and everything just becomes very clear. So I would say to any entrepreneur starting out, focus on connecting heart to mind. All the other puzzle pieces fall into place. God is always gonna lead you where you need to be.

The longest journey you will make in your life is from your head to your heart. – Sioux Legend

This is Nicole’s second time around creating a company that she strategically positioned it as a no-nonsense, purpose driven business that hand selects it’s clients based on their understanding of who they are and where they want to go.
