Nikki Nigl's ABOUT WOMEN

Jul 24 2015 52 mins 20

Begat from a long line of wise women, Nikki Nigl was hand picked by tattooed angels to help us get our lives in line! Nikki has lived coast to coast, drawing inspiration and following her own simple credo, “to enjoy life to the fullest,” and aspires to help others do the same. Possessed by her Midwest sensibility, West Coast calm and East Coast edge, Nikki has dedicated her life to motivating the masses with a no-nonsense but understanding approach. She’s qualified as a Life Manager, Public Speaking Instructor, Relationship Guru, Female EmpowHERment Coach (via public speaking), Accountability Coach, Weight-loss Coach, and overall cheerleader. Nikki says simply: “I will make your life better and easier.” And probably more fun. Her list of accomplishments include talking Catwoman down from a ledge, showing Morticia Addams the bright side of things, and fielding calls from June Cleaver — Nikki’s the reason Bridget Jones even has a diary! (Now if she could only get Hello Kitty to smile.) Loyal believer, role model, friend, artist, teacher, and always a student, Nikki is also a rarity and a treasure — and wants you to know that you are too.







Mother/Daughter Relationships: What are they?
Jun 18 2015 48 mins  
Each month this podcast will be a continuation of the conversation started the night before at ABOUT WOMEN in Chicago. Last night we heard stories from 4 women about their relationships with their Mothers and/or Daughters. This podcast is a judgment-free place for women to hear different sides of the story. To be clear, we are not anti men - we are pro women. It’s not about them, it’s about us. What is the relationship you have with your mother? Do you have a daughter - what type of relationship is that? If you could describe it in one word - what would it be? Loving? Tumultuous? Close? Distant? All of the above? Please take a listen as we have a conversation about our very first relationship - the one with our mom. HOSTS Nikki Nigl - @IAmNikkiNigl I’m 40-years old and for the most part I have a great relationship with my mother. She has always been there to support me AND my dreams. She lives in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. I haven't lived there in almost 18 years but we have always talked and checked in with each other. Danielle Holtz - @uradiate I’m a 30-year old theatre educator and storyteller. My mother and I were best friends throughout my childhood. She committed suicide when I was 17. And I still find myself navigating my relationship with her. Carrie Reffitt - @catpantsmedia I’m a 37-year old visual storyteller, marketing consultant, and queer woman. I became my Mother’s protector at a young age as I experienced her turbulent relationships with men. Not talking about abuse and attempted suicide led to years of internalized anger, guilt, and apathy. Thankfully, over the last 2 years we have developed a more open and authentic relationship. GUESTS Julie Roberts: I’m a 51-year old married and child-free advertising consultant. My mother had Borderline Personality Disorder. It was a decades long rollercoaster ride ending with me taking care of her through her final years and subsequent passing. Carolyn McCormick: I’m a 35-year old fundraiser and the mother of a 6-year old daughter. I’m one of five daughters and not my mother’s favorite. Christina Kolski: I’m a 37-year old nurturer and school social worker. I had a tumultuous and transformative relationship that changed us both. My mother passed away 5 years ago.

With time ticking away, I’m now on the fence. Danielle Holtz - @uradiate I’m a 30-year old theatre educator and storyteller.
