The Art of Living: Marilyn Nichols' Path from Corporate to Creative Freedom

Freedom Nation Podcast

08-02-2024 • 44 mins

In this inspiring episode of the Freedom Nation podcast, we had the pleasure of speaking with Marilyn Nichols, a dear friend and an embodiment of what it means to live a life of freedom. Marilyn's journey is a testament to resilience, adaptability, and the pursuit of happiness beyond the conventional working years.

Marilyn's story begins in rural Arkansas and takes us through her upbringing in Topeka, Kansas, her college years, and the "lost years" where she explored life before getting back on track. She shared her experiences with marriage, step-parenting, and the heartbreak of losing loved ones to illness. Despite these challenges, Marilyn's spirit remained undeterred as she pursued her passion for dog training, eventually starting her own successful business, Happy Puppy Tiny Dog Boarding and Training.

About the Guest:

Marilyn's journey to freedom is an inspiring tale of perseverance, growth, and success. Born in Belle Plaine, Iowa, Marilyn's life began in a small town, but her ambitions and determination would soon lead her to bigger opportunities.

At the age of eight, Marilyn's family moved from rural Arkansas to Topeka, Kansas, which marked a significant shift in her life. The move to a bigger city presented both challenges and opportunities for Marilyn, a country girl at heart. However, she embraced the change and used it as a catalyst for personal and professional growth.
