Nothing Is Missing: A Memoir of Living Boldly
Nicole Walters


A profound and gripping memoir by Nicole Walters, the daughter of Ghanaian immigrants who became a self-made multi-millionaire by showing others how to recognize their own strengths—and her own harrowing journey to the discovery that she was worthy all along of the life of her dreams.

Nothing Is Missing is a riveting, unputdownable story of what it takes to show up for yourself—and the joy that can come once you do. Raised in a home where food was unstable and anger was the norm, Nicole learned early that she needed to take charge of her own safety and security. So she did: She got into an elite private school by talking to a stranger in her dad’s cab, she strategized her way onto Wheel of Fortune to pay for college, she adopted three girls after meeting their mother panhandling, she quit her job to launch her own business, and she struggled.

Hustling endlessly to try to achieve society’s definition of success left her exhausted, compromising her own sense of worth in order to accommodate others. Nicole worked herself straight into a health crisis that threatened her life and the family she had worked so hard to build. It was not until she was forced into a major reckoning in both her business and her marriage that Nicole realized that she was already enough, that she had and was everything that she needed. In Nothing Is Missing, Nicole contemplates how she was able to create the life she wanted using the strength she had within herself all along.


Nicole Walters is a former top-selling corporate executive who quit her six-figure sales job in front of ten thousand people, took what she knew, and built a million-dollar-business in one short year. Now the host of a popular podcast, running a multi-million dollar business, and in-demand motivational speaker, Nicole is passionate about teaching everyday entrepreneurs how to own their power and trust they already have everything that they need to succeed. 


"In this sparkling and impassioned story, [Walters] found passion in choosing herself… a celebration of self-actualization and belief, with a beating heart at the center.” --Glamour

"Nicole's insights are invaluable in helping you break cycles and create the life you truly desire. If you're feeling stuck or uninspired, this book is exactly what you need to get back on track and start flourishing." -- Nedra Glover Tawwab, New York Times bestselling author of Set Boundaries, Find Peace

“Starting over in life is something every woman experiences—with marriage, career, and reinventing themselves. In this book, Nicole Walters transparently shares her own story as a first-generation Ghanaian American growing up and navigating how to show up entirely while society tells her there’s always something missing. This book is for every shelf in need of a bit of inspiration!” -- Rachel Cargle, activist, entrepreneur, and author of A Renaissance of Our Own

 "Nicole is my friend and I love her, but reading this book shook me. Don’t mistake her shiny, megawatt smile for ease; she has suffered, persevered, and overcome. Nicole's story is no joke. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to weep on the floor for such a tender retelling, or demand through a megaphone that every woman I know read this. The best endorsement I can give is this: I will immediately put this book in the hands of my daughters.” -- Jen Hatmaker, Speaker, Host of the For the Love Podcast, and 4x New York Times Bestseller author

"Like only she can, Nicole’s beautiful storytelling in Nothing is Missing both inspires and affirms. After the tears, after laughing out loud, readers will find themselves reflecting on how they too can not just survive but thrive. Nicole’s story will resonate with anyone who has the courage to defy and transform any prevailing narratives about who they are or should be. This book is a must-read for anyone determined to create a life they love." -- Tracey Michae’l Lewis-Giggetts, Author of Black Joy: Stories of Resistance, Resilience, and Restoration
