Welcome to my page and my thoughts! I am a free spirited, opinionated, indigo child who is beautifully melanated. I refuse to stay in society's boxes and I want you to as well. I give advice and life coaching on every facet on life...even the subjects you’re afraid to touch. I go in deep and I do it unapologetically! Think of me as your best friend in your head that it always going to tell you the real and help you maximize your potential all while eliminating all kinds of unnecessary fawkery in your life. I’m a behavior scientist and also a Forensic Psych PhD Candidate, so I have a little substance behind my shit talk.
Thoughts of a.Nichole came from my viral #Therapy Thursday IG "sessions" with my followers that I started a few years back where every Thursday, I discussed controversial issues and gave unapologetic and frank love and life advice. However, my followers complained that they ended too soon and they desired that I spend more time speaking on the plethora of topics I touched on weekly. So I decided to do something about this and use the growing popularity and platform to transition into my very own blog where I can not only spill life and give advice but also interact and network with everyone under one roof.
In addition to Thoughts of a.Nichole, I also decided to take it a step further and create a space with melanated language is welcome, understood, and freely spoken. In September 2017, I launched Black Sauce Podcast to intersect Therapy Thursday with the need for a Black talk podcast & to provide my people with a safe place that welcomes their thoughts, feelings, and moods. I also wanted to take it a step forward and include members of my tribe who are just as invested in the Black community, are knowledgeable in various echelons of education, and could bring not just their expertise, but also their experiences to the table & round out a sound panel.
In early summer, I launched my very own Nikkie's Thoughts Podcast where I can bring my posts, blog entries, and answers to my followers letters to the mic. I absolutely enjoy touching on everyday topics as well as challenging issues that people face as they navigate through this thing we call life. Nikkie's Thoughts Podcast is available now on iTunes & Google Play. You can also access it by clicking here. You can also send in your dilemmas and Dear Nikkie letters to me by clicking here.
In addition to Thoughts of a.Nichole, Nikkie's Thoughst Podcast & Black Sauce Podcast, I am also to the founder and CEO of Black Sauce LLC, an online retail store that features statement apparel, accessories, yoni care, holistic health & spiritual products, motivational pieces, and also an all natural skin & hair organic care line curated by my own two hands. My Black Sauce brand comes from my desire to create something for "us". I wanted to provide products that speak to our story.
Something that would command the attention of onlookers as you walk down the street. You know? Shit with a statement. Shit that's bold and in your face but still fashionable & traffic stopping. I wanted to have products that promote spirituality, elevate one's vibration, sensuality, get them in touch with their sexual prowess, and promote oneness with self. I also wanted to create products that would cultivate our melanin and make us shine like the sun children we are. Most importantly, I wanted to create a space where people could get all of these products in one shop. You can check it out at:www.blacksaucellc.com
Recently, I created two new Sisterhood brands: A Tribe Called Sis & A Seat At My Sister's Table. These brands came from my extreme passion and dedication to Sisterhood. A Tribe Called Sis is a coalition for women of color dedicated to providing events, affirmations, and resources that speak to strengthening sisterhood & promoting healing. A Seat At My Sister's Table are dinner events for women of color where mentoring, entrepreneurship, life coaching, laughter, healing, and girl talk exists beautifully at one table. I am currently on an 18 month, 21 city tour where I meet with different sisters to love on them, heal them, and help them breakthrough. Tour information and tickets purchases can be found at: www.aseatatmysisterstable.com
In January 2018, I launched I Just Want My People to Heal Inc. which is a non-profit organization that exists to proactively reduce the stigma of mental health in the African-American community by bringing awareness, providing supports as well as linkages that strengthen bonds, and promoting unity among African-American women, men, and children so that they can heal as a whole.
