Have you ever found yourself feeling like you’re rich in purpose but your bank account doesn’t reflect that? If you want more commas in your bank account while staying intentional and aligned with your purpose, this episode is for you.
In episode 126 of the Lead with Love podcast, I get cozy with Nicole Walters. By age 28, Nicole was a highly-paid executive at a Fortune 500 company, managing multibillion dollar accounts.
She quit her corporate job live on Periscope in front of 10,000 people because her job was feeding her family, but not her soul.
Nicole was able to build a steady, seven-figure gig on her own terms by opening her own private business and product development consulting firm, The Monetized Life. She now teaches everyday entrepreneurs how to earn “passive income” through her wildly popular online course, 1K1Day at NicoleWalters.tv
“I’m a big believer in putting out your divine intention and throwing things out into the world before God and hoping they come to fruition.”
– Nicole Walters
