Q&A Interview with Nicole Williams, CEO NicoleWilliamsPR

What made you decide to become an entrepreneur?

I didn’t decide to become an entrepreneur, entrepreneurship was just the result of me following my dreams and passion. I didn’t know what my career would be, but I always knew I wanted impact people’s lives; and I get to do that as a creative consultant, event planner and the editor of Nicole’s Lifestyle Lounge.

Do you feel entrepreneurship is really a viable path for young women graduating college?
Correct me if I am wrong. Entrepreneurship is defined as taking an idea and turning it into a profitable business venture. So if I am correct, yes I think entrepreneurship is a viable path for young people graduating. As I wrote in an article promoting Aspire-Canada, women in Fortune 500 c-suites and boardrooms may still be the minority, but the number of women entrepreneurs striking out on their own, to launch kick-ass startups is still growing. Even Dow Jones released a report hinting at the fact that women are the ones at the helm of successful startups.

Tell us the inspiration behind NicoleWilliamsPR.com and Nicole’s Lifestyle Lounge?
My websites are lifestyle platforms through which my mission is to help as many career-driven, entrepreneurial-minded, and small businesses stand out and compete through the help of my friends called “style”, “personal branding” and “media”. I am constantly striving to be known as the place for creative, career-driven and entrepreneurial minded women in search of alluring style, bespoke career and an inspired life. My readers keep me accountable and inspires me, and in turn I strive to inspire and empower them.

How do you feel about the importance of mentorship for youth in today’s economy?
First of all, I think everything in life should be seen as mentorship. Mentorship is very vital, as it provides professional association, knowledge, skills and support. I personally feel blessed to have the opportunity to be in a setting where I have a closer perspective and the ability to learn and take notes from awesome women like Vera Moore of Vera Moore Cosmetics. I also access mentorship via the blogs, websites, books, social media profiles and interviews of key thought leaders.

What would be the key piece of advice for young entrepreneurs today?
The advice I would give young entrepreneurs is simple – whether you are seeking to excel in your career, business and ultimately life, is to be yourself. Be authentic to who you are, as a copy of anything is always a poor imitation. I would also recommend bringing their goals to life on a vision board. It really works! Last but not least I also recommend asking for help and use a checklist.
