1. What are three words that best describe your personal brand?

Confident, Empowered, Compassionate

2. Tell us why you’re awesome in two sentences or less?

I’m awesome because I want to live life to the fullest, get lost in the deliciousness of moments, and teach others how to do the same. I collect stories and am most interested and inspired by someone who has the courage to share their truth.

3. What are your three biggest indulgences?

Ooo.  That’s a good question.

1) My S Factor class.  This is one pleasure-filled indulgence I allow myself each week.  Two hours of pure yumminess devoted to me and my body!

2) French Toast at Cici’s Café in Tarzana. OMG!

3) Sundays.  I usually take at least one day off a week to slow down, unplug & honor myself.  My last perfect Sunday was a hike, breakfast (at Cici’s!), farmer’s market, lounging by the pool, reading a book and going to see a movie.  Now that was a day of indulgence!  We all deserve at least one day a week!

4. What is your biggest pet peeve?

Closed-minded and closed-hearted people.

5. If you could have dinner with anyone (living or not) who would it be and why?

I’m torn on this one.  I’m going to cheat and give one living and one not…

Not living would be my amazing Grandpa, Martin Brooks Nichols.  I would like to see him, hug him and laugh with him again.  He taught me the most about Love.  Extra-Ordinary Love.  I would really like to tell him that.

Living would be Oprah.  I feel like that’s so cliché, but it’s true.  She is a complete and total inspiration.  A woman who beat the odds and changed / continues to change the world.  She walks the walk and leads by example.  Her authenticity, compassion, drive, success and desire to contribute to the greater good has greatly influenced my own life and that’s why I’d love to sit down with her.

6. Why is having a powerful personal brand important to you?

A powerful personal brand allows me to get my message out to the world.  My mission truly is to empower women and the bodyheart brand is a big part of how that mission gets delivered.  A powerful, clear personal brand creates instant credibility and a desire for others to want to know more about you.

7. What is your #1 marketing tip for fellow female entrepreneurs?

My #1 marketing tip is to share your truth and experience.  Sharing your story is the best way for people to connect with you and get to know you. This is particularly important if you are in a service-based industry.  If you’ve overcome a challenging experience and they are in the midst of the same challenge, you can be a light of hope for them.

Solve their problem.  Make their life better. Focus on what they need.  That’s my best advice.


  1. This was a great pick of someone to feature. Amber’s bodyheart programs and her bodyheart photo campaign are powerfully helping women transform their relationships with their bodies in a healthy way. This is a great person doing great things in the world. 🙂
