Imagine receiving a breast cancer diagnosis just nine days after losing your job - this was the reality for our guest, Nicole Roberts, an HR executive who faced these challenges in December 2022. In this truly inspiring episode, Nicole shares her journey of conquering cancer and navigating the financial difficulties that came with it. Not only did she manage her family's living expenses and medical care, but she also started her own HR consulting and coaching business, People Solutions Group.
We explore the misdiagnosis of Nicole's breast cancer and discuss the importance of self-advocacy and self-care. Nicole's story highlights the significance of having a treatment plan and the unwavering support of loved ones. Our friend Laurie Ruettimann, host of the Punk Rock HR podcast, joins us to dive deeper into Nicole's experience and how to better support those who may face health or personal challenges in the future.
