About Inspiruption©'s founder, nichole
On August 9, 2018, I turned forty. It was the most upsetting, exhilarating, confusing, and incredibly amazing day of my life. I was on an Alaskan cruise, getting ready to anchor in Ketchikan, when it occurred to me that "half of my life" was now "over". I spent the morning reflecting on all that I had achieved in my last thirty-nine years of life: I just got engaged three days before, had already traveled much of the world (as you will see), lived in many cities, met incredible people from all walks of life, attended/hosted events that many only saw in magazines, held dream jobs, working with dream people; written two novels (publishing still pending), and have pushed myself outside of my comfort zone more times than I can count. I've also shattered my own perceptions on what I "should" be doing with my life, as well as who I "should" be doing it with, opting to remain open to the endless possibilities in front of me.
I Googled "successful women who started in their forties", and out popped a list of articles about some of the most successful women in the world. The more I clicked through the articles, the more inspired I became to keep pushing myself to be better, to search for new ways to improve myself, and to follow through with the dreams I had not yet achieved. And then, out of nowhere, something hit me. Women my age (give or take 10 years), all feel the same way at some point. We start to search for validation that our lives still serve a purpose, that we can still achieve new things, and that we're beautiful no matter what. We want inspiring stories about real women our age, who are fearlessly forging their own paths. We want beauty and fashion tips that transcend skin, sizes, and ages. And, we want comfortable, yet fun travel that help us escape and recharge.
It is with this in mind that I launched Pardon the "Inspiruption" - a place for women (of all ages) to interrupt their own days with the inspiration they need to better themselves (when/if they want to). But, I can’t do this by myself, nor am I an expert on everything. Thus, I’ve enlisted the help of some fabulous women who know a thing or two about their field. Check out our tribe below.
