Tiffany S. Williams Bio     

When it comes to describing Tiffany S. Williams, MBA, the phrase “Real women support other women,” is an understatement.

A motivational and inspirational force to be reckoned with, Williams is Founder and CEO of Rich Girl Collective, an online training academy for women who are looking to turn their passion into a side hustle or a successful full-time business. After unsubscribing from the narrative that women can’t “have it all” as a working professional, Tiffany has made it her life’s work to assist other women in transitioning from full-time employee to full-time entrepreneur using online businesses as their vehicle.

Tiffany is a firm believer in the idea that “great reward follows hard work” and she uses this mantra to encourage others to get out of their own way so that they can live a life that brings them joy and fulfillment.

As a dynamic online business coach, digital marketing consultant, two-time best-selling author, and speaker. Tiffany has grown her tribe to over 70,000 women in her private online communities. As an online business strategist, she teaches her students the same strategies that she learned and implemented while working in corporate America that have propelled her to unprecedented levels of online business success.

When she isn’t helping her students build their business, she is consulting corporations on their digital marketing strategy and workplace community culture.

To date, Tiffany has been featured by and contributes to Forbes, Thrive Global, and Addicted 2 Success. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family, working out at the gym, and traveling the world.

If you are looking for a relevant, relatable and real voice to pour into your employees, students, or clients, Tiffany S. Williams, is your match. Tiffany is available for keynote presentations, expert panels, workshop host, or corporate “lunch and learn” sessions.

Nicole Walker’s Interview Commentary

I really enjoyed this interview with Tiffany and I hope you did as well.

I agree with Tiffany’s viewpoint on the importance of being receptive to advice and feedback. As Tiffany stated, we don’t know everything. This is why having the ability to receive advice and feedback is essential to our success as leaders. Advice and feedback can help us obtain a better understanding, give us a different perspective to consider, and assist us in avoiding pitfalls. If we want to be more effective, then we must become comfortable with seeking and receiving advice and feedback! A quote by Bill Gates reads, “We all need people who will give us feedback. That’s how we improve.”

I admire Tiffany’s willingness to step-up into leadership roles during undergrad and grad school, by leading the business club and business projects. Leaders seek opportunities, as Tiffany has shown. I find this type of behavior truly admirable considering the different options and numerous distractions that college students face daily. Personally, I love to hear stories of individuals who chose to walk the path less traveled at such a young age. A quote by Wilma Mankiller reads, “Every single person has leadership ability. Some step up and take them. Some don’t. My answer was to step up and lead.”

I can relate to Tiffany’s personal and professional assessment practices, as I have the same. As Tiffany mentioned, it is super beneficial to step back and assess ourselves so we can determine where we are and how we can approve. Self-assessment gives us the opportunity to learn on a deeper level, improve our judgement skills, and increase our engagement. Knowing where we are gives us the foundation necessary to determine where we would like to be. A quote by Eliyas Mohammad reads, “Look into the mirror of self-assessment, clean your character, comb your thinking, shave off your bad habits, and brush your skills.”

Nicole Walker’s Takeaway of the Week

Tiffany mentioned how leaders should lead others individually based on the needs of each person, as opposed to our own desires. To do this effectively, we have to take the time required to learn about the needs of those we lead.

I will make it my business to learn what my people need, so I can provide the solutions they desire. Although I am very knowledgeable in many areas, I realize that I cannot accurately determine another person’s needs without observing, surveying, and/or talking to my people.

A quote by Mandy Hale reads, “There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others.”

Nicole Walker’s Leadership Challenge

My leadership challenge for you would be to think about the one thing you can take away from this episode and adopt into your life.  I know it’s hard to absorb too much information at one time and it’s even harder to try and implement too many changes at once.  When I attend a training or listen to podcasts I aim to walk away with a least one thing that stuck out to me and one way that I can change as a result.  I challenge you to do the same!
