As a guest on over 100 shows and podcasts, here are just a few of the places where you can find Nellie!
A little ditty about me...
I am a happily married wife of 20+ years and we have four truly amazing daughters, all in their adolescent years.
I love, love, love adventure, laughing, random dancing, singing (although I need loud music accompanying me), learning and teaching.
We live in coastal NC in the USA and we love small town living. I blame Gilmore Girls, Heart of Dixie, One Tree Hill and Dawson's Creek etc. for that (many of which were filmed in the very town I now live in).
It was a dream for a couple of midwest kids to move to NC and we chose to live out our dream as a family starting in 2015.
This was when we also decided, even with absolutely no prior experience, that homeschooling would be the best option for us to try and for seven years we did just that. It was truly one of my most treasured gifts, not that every day was roses, but when I look back, there was so many of my favorite moments in, or because of, the freedoms associated with, homeschool.
I am an avid reader, lover of personal, faith and leadership development and always striving to be a better version of myself than I was the day before.
I am a Christian, a servant in several roles, a speaker, a podcaster, an author and a family life & leadership coach.
I started The 6570 Family Project because I see the great potential of this time, the second half of childhood, that we have with our kids. This is the training ground for their adulthood and not something to be left to chance and hope or given up on, but something you can forge relationship, guidance, trust and connection through and you do this together.
The world we live in is complicated and I was not quite ready for it when I left home at 17. I was hurt and went through many complications because of it.
Today's young women and parents face even more obstacles and the ones that have always been there are exaggerated even more than before.
Habits, behaviors and beliefs are conditioned while still in a home environment and those set the course for so much more in their future lives.
If we can establish positive and strategic thinking, critical problem solving, relationship building, emotional resilience, faith understanding, positive mindset practices and abundant curiosity when they are home and dancing in the kitchen with us THEN we can change lives and even change the world.
It really comes down to leading our kids toward true worth, real self-esteem and unwavering confidence. The wisdom, relationships, respect, understanding and perspectives that is born and curated through this process is priceless and through the years, I have developed the formula that will get you there with your daughter!
These idea of worth, esteem and confidence don't have to just be concepts, they can be actions!
All of my life's work from faith, leadership, biology, psychology, personal development, real world culture and experiences and every adventure and failure has led to me being able nurture and guide families just like yours because I have been there too.
I truly love what I do for a living and I love connecting with the lives of every family I mentor.
I hope to cross paths with you soon so I can be a better person for being a part of your story.
All for now...
