What My Daughter Will Never Hear Me Say

Photo of Nikki and Emma at the beach
Having a daughter changed my life and, as she gets older, I'm realizing that she is still changing it. My daughter is 6, she's thoughtful, funny, empathetic, kind, and introspective and, as she's growing, she is becoming more and more perceptive of the things we do and say around her. As a parent, it's my responsibility to make sure that Emma has all the tools she needs to live a happy and healthy life. I don't want to equip her with things like negative self-talk, body image issues, or a preoccupation with how much she weighs (which is an imperfect indicator of one's health, anyways). Talking about weight can be a tricky topic for anybody, at any age. What I want to focus on with my daughter is healthfulness more ...

When Dreams Become A Reality: My Entrepreneur Story About Never Giving Up

Years ago, when I was working from my apartment, I dreamt about a peaceful, non-intimidating, inclusive wellness oasis in the city where EVERYONE was welcome.   I started envisioning the location. I lived in the West Village, so that was a no-brainer. I needed enough space for all that we were going to offer. But NY real estate is no joke. And I come from nothing. No financial backing. No family money. So I had NO idea how I was actually going to do this.   Rather than give up, I started envisioning the space like it was a game. I got clear on my vision, and for fun I would go seeking spaces, possibilities, real estate listings, etc. The worst that could happen was that it didn't happen right ...
