Always happy, post facial!

Hi, Iโ€™m Nika ๐Ÿ‘‹ thanks for checking in.

15 years ago, I left London's media hub - financial meltdown, and redesigned my life, building an online business and writing books while raising my daughter, Julieta.

I now work remotely as an indie writer and tech storyteller. Building a community of creative entrepreneurs who want to live differently ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐ŸŒ

My mission

  • Empowering visionary leaders to share their stories

  • Bold and Borderless: inspiring and encouraging the next generation of creative entrepreneurs

  • Building deep connections through remote work and travel. Wired and welcome: smart growth in small communities

The health detective

Iโ€™ve written 12 books on sex, health and wellness topics.

Iโ€™m also on a longevity quest! David Sinclair ๐Ÿ‘‹ Healing myself. Mind & body: thoughts, mindset, journaling, supplements. I have RA and want to get it into remission and share what I know.
