EP 193 - From Homeless to Millionaire with Nichole MacDonald
In this episode, Nichole MacDonald and Alex share all the steps Nichole took to become a successful entrepreneur after touching rock bottom.
Nichole MacDonald has 20 years of marketing and product development experience and 13 years of being an entrepreneur. She built a multi-million dollar business from scratch and is the CEO of Sash Bags. Nichole has a huge presence on social media with over 100K organic followers. She became an ontological coach/leader out of passion and she is also a board member of Tech Startup Lash Live. Nichole is also a single mother raising two children.
She began her career in the 90's as a graphic designer. By 2003 she got her first job managing a graphics department for a kitchen electronics company that distributed products through every major retailer in the US. Since she had a creative brain, she wound up being moved to the product development team to help create products for the future of the company.
After gaining extensive experience in the publishing industry, she decided to quit her job and start her own business which didn't go very well and she hit rock bottom. Then Nichole stepped into business number two after gaining some stability. With a new perspective, lessons learned, and a pragmatic yet creative approach, she brought the Sash Bag to market. It took only four years to turn Sash into a multi-million dollar business.
Nichole is now an inspiring ontologic coach helping transform other people's lives with an intensive holistic program called Multi-Million Dollar Mastermind.
