When Turtles Fly

When Turtles Fly: Finding Your Turtle Effect: Sticking your neck out to reach your goals

How do individuals find the drive for what they do?  How do they conquer their greatest obstacle?  How do they take the appropriate risks to make sure their business skyrockets?  Nikki relates how clients can answer these questions through her incredible Turtle Effect philosophy.  Nikki discovered that she could find the passion to pursue her lifelong dreams, she could find the strength to overcome a spinal injury that 10 doctors told her wasn’t possible, and she could take the risk of soaring 50 feet in the air off a 10 foot all snow jump to win an Olympic Gold medal despite being afraid of heights.  With inspiring tools, people find that Nikki’s inspiration will motivate them long after they have heard her speak.

“You motivate me still, today.  Your inspiration will last a lifetime…I took your advice and surmounted the obstacles by focusing on my strengths--even when I wasn't sure if my strengths were still there. And now, I'm celebrating my victories as I move forward. And each victory reminds me that even in the face of adversity, my strengths were still there. This allows me to put risk--and fear--in perspective.”
