In this episode of our Six Weeks to Fitness podcast, I am joined by Nicole Rodrigues, CEO and founder of NRPR Group, a strategic positioning agency in Beverly Hills, which was awarded best PR agency in the city. More than 16 years ago, Nicole worked in-house as a PR coordinator for the Oakland Raiders, while also cheering for the team as a Raiderette. She’s developed and executed strategic campaigns for some of the biggest names in business, such as Yahoo!, Dolby, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Sony PlayStation, Hulu, M-GO, Toon Hero, Demand Media, MobiTV, and the Oakland Raiders.
During the interview, Nicole will take us on a journey from her childhood, growing up the oldest of 9 children in Fremont, California, working 3 jobs to pay for her college education to pursuing her dreams as a cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders and becoming the owner of a very successful PR company. Nicole will also discuss the important role exercise and nutrition played in helping her to achieve her goals and why, while in the 8th grade, she decided to give up drinking soda and how that has impacted her life. Nicole believes that in order to be successful you must have a positive mindset and limit the amount of negative people in your life. Nicole doesn’t believe in excuses. She believes if she can live her life’s dream and purpose, coming from humble beginnings, anyone can. Nicole didn’t know how she was going to achieve her goals but stayed on a positive, health conscious path, believed in herself and her abilities and became a trailblazer.
