Introduce yourself and profession to our readers:
I am Nikki Payne, an inspirational speaker from Atlanta Georgia and I travel the country sharing my story, keynote speaking, presenting lectures and workshops.
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest?
I am the survivor of the double murders of my children and the suicide of my husband which lead me to years of drug and alcohol abuse and self destructive behavior. I now use my experiences to encourage others to live up to their fullest potential and greatness.
What advice would you share with those interested in a similar pursuit?
If your passion is to help others by sharing your testimony or expertise while making a full time income but working part time then my advice would be to:
Even if you believe that you are not ready, fully through your ordeal or not an "expert" yet, there is still a freshman class that is trying to get to where you are and they need your help. If you wait until everything is perfect you will never be ready.
Discuss a professional challenge and how you overcame it:
My biggest professional challenge was learning to share my story with the world while still maintaining privacy and inner peace. The way I overcame it was to always have resource pamphlets during my speeches for those who require additional help, I do not give out my personal number, I limit the amount of personal information that I put on social media and I only coach a small amount of people at a time so that I won't be overwhelmed by others struggles.
What is next for your brand/business in 2017?
2017 holds a lot for me. My book 4 Hours, 3 Caskets, 2 Funerals, 1 Standing will be released. I have interviews scheduled that will be nationally televised and I will be working with a few film producers. It is going to be a great year.
