“Sharing the story of my life to inspire others to fully live theirs.” – Teresa

What advice would you give your younger self?

“If you repeatedly pull back from new opportunities or find yourself whispering, ‘I can’t believe I did that
again’… this book is for you!” – Teresa

The Girl in Your Wallet is the enhanced second edition of Teresa’s popular memoir with additional insights and interactive, reflective questions. It is the compelling story of how one woman overcame cycles of abuse, addiction, and incarceration to become a highly successful business owner and live a deeply fulfilling life. Teresa followed the only role models she had, which led to a life driven by drugs and ultimately homelessness and incarceration. As she shares her mindset every step of the way out of that cycle, she also offers an in-depth exploration of a mother-daughter relationship and the forgiveness of others and self, a topic that resonates universally. This book can set you on a path to explore andrelease whatever hurts you may be carrying. Learning the driving forces behind your actions is far more important than your specific area of self-sabotage.

Originally written as inspiration for women rising out of dire circumstances, The Girl in Your Wallet has a far-reaching impact on the internal dialogue that holds many of us back in careers, relationships, and service to others. Teresa provides a fearless and transparent view of her inner thought life and the ensuing results and helps the reader identify, consider, and refresh their own.

At the Heart of This Inspirational Memoir is Forgiving Your Past

“Teresa Nickell’s The Girl in Your Wallet is the second and updated edition of her powerful memoir and personal development book. Teresa has written a book of vulnerability and courage. Each chapter ends with a study guide to help readers reflect on what they have just read and how it might apply to their own lives. Readers will find much to chew on here. Far more than just telling her story, Teresa provides deep insights.
