Terri Nicholson is a singer, blogger, activist and a mom to her three boys living in the rainforest of Australia.
Terri used to be afraid of sharing her story and views to the world along with the fear of others judging her action. She was able to get out of her own way and decided to go for what she believed in.
One of the things that I like to boast about Terri is that her solo album went from 261,000 to #1 on Amazon in a span of 12 hours on the day it launched. How was Terri able to do it? You will find out as you tune in to today’s episode.
Terri is Australian, English and Scottish but born and raised in Australia.

Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence
Terri felt like she always had some sense of self confidence from growing up in a community of people who stood up peacefully for the protection of rainforest and won. It instilled in me a confidence that she knows each of us standing up for what matters can make a difference in the world.
However, sharing her light, voice and message with the world has felt scary because she feared of being judged or sharing her story.
The “AHA” Moment
When Terri was pregnant with her third child she read a book The Charge by Brendon Burchard. gave me two things which were congruence process & her 3 confidence/congruence words and also the challenge to launch my album.
So Terri set put to prove that an unsigned unknown singer songwriter could top the amazon best seller charts and share my music with the world, and make an income from my passion for my family.
The album went from #261000 to #1 in 12 hours, bringing in $9K in album sales on launch day. She was 8 months pregnant, with simply the power of the internet and a clear strategy and the courage to share her voice/gifts with the world and step into her confidence in the process.

For Terri, it’s an ongoing journey of stepping more fully into sharing herself and her gifts with the world. Blogging and the online space has become a vehicle for her to touch lives and share her passion while making an income for her family as well as being able to give back to the causes, especially environmental causes, that she cares about.
