Find Your Awesome with Nikki Bruno


Nikki Bruno became a professional coach in 2016, after 15 years as an editor and writer in the book-publishing industry. She holds a bachelor’s degree in cultural anthropology from Princeton University and a master’s degree in teaching and curriculum from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Nikki has authored several books published by Capstone Press. A Boston-based single mom of two, Nikki loves scuba diving, international travel, salsa dancing, and helping women know and understand how incredible they are.

“This world would be a much better place—our planet would be a much better place—if women had more power of every kind. Inner power, social power… financial, political—every kind of power there is.”

- Nikki Bruno

Words matter—particularly to two word nerds. Nikki and I get right into the thick of what power means, what empowerment means and how it all relates to our awesomeness. She shares what she feels are the components of awesome and we dig into all the words: joy, flow, power and awesome.

“The tragedy is that girls and women start unlearning their power and being distanced from their power starting the moment they are born. […] And this happens with boys and men too.”

- Nikki Bruno
