Nikki Weigel — Motivational Conversationalist

Hi! I’m Nikki,

and I am SO glad you’ve stopped by to connect with me! 

Being a Mom to three differently-abled boys has given me quite an education. Their alphabet soup of diagnoses has opened my eyes to a whole different view of life and relationships. Of myself. Life in our house is definitely a colorful spectrum!

Using my personal story, I spread a message of hope, love, compassion, strength, and possibility! In assisting others to think differently than they ever have, I help them to create better futures than they ever thought possible.

I encourage adults and children to find the connection and compassion they crave from each other. By inspiring perspective shifts, I aim to help families find empowerment, and schools and systems to take another look at how they  view their current relationships with little humans of all ages and abilities.

Ghandi once said that we should be the change we wish to see in this world. In the world we currently find ourselves in, that can be a bit tricky without a road map. A guide. Someone who has lived it.

Whether you want to parent a little differently, are in education and feel frustrated by a system that doesn’t support your vision, or work within the systems that support our little humans and would like a fresh perspective on how to relate to them more compassionately, you will find empowerment here. 

Below you will find my most recent blog posts, archive, and a sign up to receive them in your inbox! Often I reflect on lessons I’ve learned on my own journey.  It’s where I put the deep stuff. Uncover the pain. Share the joys. Spew the wisdom. You don’t want to miss it!

You’ll also find links to my social media pages. I post several times a day! Life with three boys on the Autism Spectrum runs every color, not just blue! Life as their Mom does too! We love posting a different view of Autism. Of Special Needs. Of what life can look like. Of the high highs and the low lows and how we roll with them. We love to break glass ceilings and bust through stereotypes. If you are looking for laughs and inspiration, a daily dose of reality…we’d love to have you follow us!

If you are at a place in your life or career where you are ready to make a change… hop on over to my services page! One of my favorite mantras is “let my suffering be of service”. With all I have thrived through and the lived experience it has given me, I am more than happy to be of service to you. I love working with people who want to experience their lives differently! If the world of Special Needs and challenging children has you feeling hopeless, helpless, alone, or defeated…this is going to be right up your alley! You don’t have to do it alone or with someone who doesn’t get it. I’m here and I can walk with you.

So, no matter who you are or how you came to my page, I am so glad you did. I look forward to meeting you and learning about how you are connected to a kiddo with Special Needs or challenging behavior.



And while you’re here, why not learn a little bit more about me?
