Nicole Zeien-Cox is an author, professional speaker, and accomplished entrepreneur who strives to inspire everyone to live a full life. This passion for empowering others was sparked after prevailing through a string of adversities in her own journey, from foster care to self-employed business owner.

In just 30 days she wrote her first book, “Foster to Fosters,” becoming an Amazon Bestseller within a short 24 hours of publishing.

This book led to sharing relatable life lessons through public speaking and coaching that benefits budding entrepreneurs, child welfare professionals, parents, and teens.

It also led to a national publishing deal that has facilitated a platform, which allows her to continue advocating for causes she believes in.
