Hey friend! You are welcome here! Let’s meet….
I’m Nicole Matthews, a San Diego-native, who runs an event and travel concierge firm (The Henley Co.), a podcaster (The Big Ask Podcast), and educator with an insatiable appetite for creating my own opportunities. Try putting all that on your business card!
Fast forward 12 years, and I now have a six-figure event and travel concierge business, have taught over a thousand students, have written a book called Permission: Stop Competing & Start Creating the Life You Want to Live, have worked at 3 Olympic Games and multiple Super Bowls, and travel (by choice) fairly regularly. It’s a great life but just so you know, I didn’t come flying out of the womb like this! I’ve made a ton of mistakes. I’ve been depressed. I’ve been in the wrong relationship. I’ve wondered where my next mortgage payment was going to come from. I’ve spent hundreds of hours listening to podcasts, watching webinars and buying “short cuts.” I’ve done a lot – both good and bad!
One day, I just had enough and so I started to create my own opportunities. First step was getting out of the painfully wrong relationship. Then it was starting my business. Next, I left the law firm and became an entrepreneur. When I wanted to work at the London Olympics, I created an opportunity for myself to make it happen. When I wanted to write a book, I hired a coach and wrote that sucker in 6-weeks. When I wanted to raise money to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, I raised $128,000 in 10-weeks. The common denominator in all these stories is that I asked others to help me and created opportunities for myself!
So what does all of that mean for you?
I’ve learned a lot along the way so know it’s my chief goal to help you to design the life you want to live. I want to remind other women that they are more than enough, and that they too are entitled to live a permission-filled life. It doesn’t matter where you currently are compared to where you want to be, I’m here for you. I’m going to equip you with all I can to help you to live your best life.
Making big asks and creating your opportunities is available for you too; I promise.
Welcome to the tribe!
