The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast – Episode #40
How to make your passion your career with the right mindset with Nikki B
One of the most common questions I get when someone new I meet learns that I played Division I Golf in College is “Why didn’t I pursue a career in golf?”
A little over 10 years has gone by – and now I finally have the answer!
I didn’t have the right mindset. Fortunately over the last 10 years, through a lot of trial and erros, I have been able to get a better understanding of the basics around what is needed to be success in every aspect of my life.
Today’s guest has mastered that at such an early point in her career and is going to set the golf industry on fire! Nikki B is a recent graduate and fellow collegiate golfer. Surprisingly we didn’t get into too much golf talk, although I’m sure we could have killed an hour or two doing that – instead, we dove right into why Nikki decided to start her own business pursuing the thing she loves the most – the game of golf!
What’s most impressive about what she has accomplished is the trail she is blazing for future female golfers with the “Women Who Drive” community. Having a young daughter, it’s great to know there are women like Nikki setting the example for her.
In just over a year she has built an incredible following, and started to work closely with Kia at LPGA events, which led to her meeting LPGA sensation Michelle Wei.
