Hi I'm Tiffany Nicole
This is my story, and I hope it inspires you to never give up on your dreams.
By the age of five, I already understood what it meant to be in love with one of my God-given gifts and passionately pursue it.
As children, we are innocent and naturally curious and wonderfully naïve and fearless. We just do what naturally feels good and joyful. We do things just for the fun of it. Remember what that felt like? Just simply being to be and not doing for any particular gain.
That was my relationship with singing.
I began singing at five years old and continued professionally until I was 27. Pursuing a career in singing was effortless and natural, much like breathing, really. It always felt like home, nurturing and familiar. It was always there for me. I could always rely on my voice and getting lost in the love of it. Music fed my soul.
I would learn much later in life that how I lived for those formative 22 years—following my passion without question or concern—was uncommon, but it was the only way I knew how (and wanted) to live.
MY FIRST PROFOUND LIFE LESSON
My mother would always ask me why I chose a career path that was so challenging and unstable.
I would tell her, “I didn’t choose this, it chose me.” Thats the thing about purpose it was placed within us long ago...
As I matured into adulthood, I knew I’d never do anything for “work” that didn’t make me feel the way I felt when I sang. It wouldn’t be worth the kind of dedication I pour into my work without such a meaningful return, without feeding my soul, without feeling lit up!
Looking back, I realize the gift was so much more than just a beautiful voice.
It led me to the exact place I am today. It gave me profound insight into and experience in passion, dedication, accountability, rejection, determination, fearlessness, courage, blind faith, manifestation, intuition, personal connection, and learning how to make peace after letting go of the love of my life.
THE END OF AN ERA
Sadly, but also beautifully, my singing career ended.
Tears were shed and I had to mend a very broken heart, but I looked ahead and asked the universe, “What’s next?”
I’ve always loved a good celebration. Even now, I notice we don’t celebrate ourselves enough. We don’t take time out of life to celebrate great love, meaningful friendships, family milestones, new jobs, personal growth, and all victories both big and small.
We need to celebrate ourselves in this life for as long as we have it.
We are so caught up in glorifying how busy we are and always living in the future instead of rejoicing in the present moment, which is the ONLY moment in our lives that truly exists.
After my successful 22-year-long run in the music industry, and a great deal of thinking, I wondered how I could use my experience in the entertainment world to my advantage? I finally decided to launch a VIP event-planning business. I found it came naturally to me, and I was back in the saddle of the entertainment industry; once again, loving every minute. I threw parties for celebrities, major recording artists, athletes, models, and... you get the idea. It was years of red carpets, long nights, no sleep, stress, bad habits, and self-important BS. I let my job define me. It became who I was, and my puffed-up title meant EVERYTHING to me. But it was all an illusion. I was living in a false reality.
I was an EGOmaniac, and the worst part was that I was NOT LIVING IN THE MOMENT. I never even realized how successful I really was, because, after all the celebrations and wonderful memories I had created for others, I never once celebrated MYSELF!
Instead, I just wanted MORE of the same. Lost in the rat race, I was on that hamster wheel, and I couldn't jump off.
However, little did I know at the time; the universe was working behind-the-scenes on my exit strategy!
SUDDEN DEATH & MY DO-OVER
The economy started to crumble and slowly, so did my business. During this time, my boyfriend, childhood friend, a man I loved deeply, passed away.
With the help and support of a few close people, I eventually emerged from my deep depression and mourning, and I began to think more clearly. I was able to check in with myself and reassess my life. Fortunately, by now, I was mindful enough to see and hear the signs that the universe was throwing my way. I had long since learned; if you're not paying attention, you will miss them!
And it led me to Miami. I came on a much-needed vacation. The minute I landed and that tropical breeze hit my face, I felt home. I had always dreamed of living by the ocean. Weeks later I packed up my Jeep and drove down, just like that. I trusted my intuition to guide me to a city where I felt calm and safe.
I knew it was the right move to make. And I have lived in Miami happily for 10 years.
I may have changed cities, but my mindset about life and work remained the same. I soon found myself back in a similar work situation, taking a job as an event planner in the hospitality industry. I fell right back into old patterns, my hustle & grind, jumping from one event-planning job to another, never feeling satisfied.
I knew in my heart it was not for me! But I masked my fear by calling it “practicality.” And not BELIEVING that what I truly desired was possible.
THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE
My body, mind, heart, spirit and bank account were all screaming the same thing, “Get OUT!” But how do you leave a 15 year career you created and know so well, one that’s so familiar? How do you abandon the only thing you BELIEVE you know how to do?
After taking a suggestion from a friend, I attended a personal development workshop about getting unstuck in life.
Within 10 minutes I was called on to publicly assess the state of each area of my life. It was a devastating shocking hot mess express.
I had let all the truly important areas of my life fall to the wayside because everything was based on my career (AKA MY EGO). I had given my entire self-worth to what I DID, instead of who I was.
This moment WOKE ME UP! NO MORE, NO WAY! My life was not fine; it was not even OK!
When did less than OK become my new normal?
CIJ SAVED MY LIFE
This powerful workshop culminated with an offer to take a transformational life course called the Creative Insight Journey . I signed up immediately.
It’s the best thing I have ever done for myself!
Even with all my challenges I was an obsessive Oprah watcher, I read Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav when I was 19 (blew my mind) I read Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Elizabeth Gilbert, the list is endless.
I’ve always been on a spiritual path and knew a greater force was with me. I just needed to get back on track.
Each week presented a profoundly relatable, yet powerful life tool in a way I had never heard or quite applied to myself. We shared, bonded, and called each other weekly. We were held accountable to ourselves, our intentions, goals, and so much more. Every week, I peeled back a new layer and a little piece of myself peaked through. No work, no title, no sadness, no judgment, no expectations, just me.
During our daily meditations and journaling, I became so mindful, present, and grateful in my life. All the self-sabotaging thoughts and obsessive thinking I had went away.
My mind just got quiet. Ahhh, what a gift.
I had profound moments of clarity and joy. I began to connect to myself again and developed an even deeper, more meaningful connection to the people in my life and my class.
CONTINUING MY JOURNEY
As my classmates resonated with me and my insights, my teacher began hinting at a career as a coach and one night, even called on me to substitute. That was my first step.
In that moment, I knew all I wanted was to share this gift with every single person I came in contact with. My passion was back! I knew with 100% certainty this was what I was meant to do with my life.
A GIFT FROM THE UNIVERSE
Through the Creative Insight Journey course, I qualified as a Certified Mindset Coach. Thirsty for more, I also became a certified Theta Healer and Motivational Speaker. I found the BEST ME and I have never looked back. It's been the most honest, fulfilling time of my life. I'm madly in love with this work and teaching it. I feel so very honored each time people attend my workshops, place trust in the tools I reveal, improve themselves, and make a choice to work with me.
Now, looking back, I realize that the gift which I had as a child came naturally to me. It was so much more than just a beautiful voice, and that the experience of great personal loss led me to the exact place I find myself in today. My past had given me profound insight into, and experience in, passion, dedication, accountability, rejection, determination, fearlessness, courage, blind faith, manifestation, intuition, personal connection, and learning how to make peace after letting go of my first love — music.
