Writer, Blogger, and Business Owner
Nicole Dash, founder and CEO of Connect Authentically, LLC, is a writer, blogger and business owner who lives in Northern Virginia with her husband and four children. She started her career as a journalist and copy editor. She also managed public relations and corporate communications for a national franchise company, but in 2009 started a home-based daycare and enjoyed success as a small business owner. In 2012, she began her heartfelt blog, Tiny Steps Mommy, where she writes about family, life, parenting and caring for children. This is when she discovered her authentic voice and became an active member of the Washington, DC blogger community. One of her essays was recently published in an anthology about friendships called The HerStories Project: Women Explore the Joy, Pain, and Power of Female Friendship.
