Nicole Walters explains what inspired her to quit her six figure job in front of 10,000 people on Periscope, then go on to earn a million dollars in revenue within 18 months.

I am only limited by what I can dream and pray for

The bible talks about how your provision resides in your purpose. When you are closely aligned with what you are suppose to do and when you are using the gifts God has given you to serve others then you see bounty. And I can honestly say that's what happened. I took the smarts that I had and I started applying it to the place that I could serve the most, and I started seeing rewards for that. Both financially, emotionally and spiritually. It's really been a blessing.

I had multiple income streams ... my business was not based on a single source of income. One of the biggest mistakes people make when they are getting into consulting, is they exchange time for money.
