Introduce yourself to our audience. Tell us who you are and what you are currently focused on.

Hey everyone. I am Dr. Nadine Collins. I am an International Speaker, Women’s Leadership Expert, Spiritual Wellness Coach, Prayer Counselor and Author. 

I am passionate about "purpose" and have been for most of my life. And now, I get to spend my life helping faith-based women to believe that they have a true purpose; that their purpose matters, and that they need to uncover it (that one thing that they are meant to do), so that they can experience true joy—because they are passionate about what they do and the difference that they are making in the lives of others; real fulfillment—the kind that comes with living a life that is aligned with what they are meant to do; and abiding inner peace—because they are no longer experiencing disequilibrium or imposter syndrome with the fight that comes with living one thing (even when they are successful) but knowing that you have a deep calling to do something else.

Tell us about your favorite Ellevate Network memory or success story. Why are you a member?

I am new to Ellevate, but I am here because I have a desire to truly connect with like-minded women. These words like-minded is so overused but it truly represents my desire to expand and continue to grow as a woman entrepreneur. I believe that interacting with the women in Ellevate is the next best thing for me and for my business.

How would you define your professional mission?

I am on a fearless mission to empower faith-based women to break through indoctrinations and the Mentally Constructed Glass Ceiling (TM) that is hindering their advancement so that they can uncover their true purpose and build a successful life around it while making their unique impact on the world.

What qualities does it take for someone to be successful in your line of work?

In my line of work, it takes a few things for someone to be successful: 1. To have a deep and meaningful connection with God (the Divine). 2. To have a passion for helping women who are not even aware of their potential, to bring them to that place of uncovering what their deep calling is. 3. To be willing to help "unknown", "unclassified", and "every-day-women" to plan to have successful and fulfilling lives (lives they have dreamed of and never thought was accessible to them).

What is one of your most memorable career accomplishments?

One of my most memorable career accomplishments was creating the Runway to Soar Coaching Experience in April 2020. I Beta tested it with 9 women and saw how quickly and deeply it transformed their lives in a short space of time (literally 5 days of coaching).

I then relaunched this coaching experience in July and have seen the significant transformation women from almost 25 cities globally (12 countries) enrolled in 2020. Some of the ladies launched online schools, published books, launched their speaking platforms, and started their own businesses.

What are some career challenges on your radar?

Some of my career challenges is finding a strategic way to get more women into my coaching programs.

What project have you worked on that you’re most proud of? Why?

One project that I worked on and I am proud of is my Pregnant with Purpose event. It was originally scheduled for 17 cities, 10 countries and 5 continents in 2020. But, COVID changed that I wanted to give up the idea. However, I decided very late to host the event virtually in December 2020 and it was a successful endeavor. I am so happy that I pushed forward to make that project a reality.

We’d love to hear more about your career path. What led you to where you are today?

I honestly had no intentions of doing the work that I am doing now. Any part of it. But, I honestly believe that I was led there by God; firstly, with Him totally redirecting my Doctoral Dissertation focus to women in top leadership positions, when initially, all my work from undergrad through to PhD. courses were focused on Special Education.

So, first, God led me to study women leaders, and then called me to serve women first through my speaking engagements at women's events (in-person and virtually), and then through my group and 1:1 coaching programs.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

The most rewarding part of my job is being able to see women liberated to living their "true" life...doing what they are meant to doing and not living like imposters, going with the flow, trying to fit the mold, live in the status quo or norm, but knowing that they can authentically living the life that is theirs.

What is it about your job that makes you feel it’s the right fit for you?

I know that what I do is the "right fit" for me because it literally gives me life. It does not matter how I am feeling (especially on the days when I am feeling motivated to do anything), as soon as I get on a call with a client, it is like a whole new me. I feel energized knowing that in that moment, I am showing up and making a difference in the life of women.

What would you say your personal superpower is?

My personal super power is my faith...I believe that anything and everything is possible (regardless of obstacles and challenges).
