Tell us about your community-building activities in 2019 (<500 characters)

I've created this company to help others realize their potential, find out their purpose and their "why", and to leave a lasting legacy that they will be proud of. This has been done through various speaking events & workshops, online communities, social media building, and continued positive messages to allow others to see their true value. I am proud of the fact that I have been able to provide others with the tools they need to move forward in this world even through the darkest of times. After all, that is when so many people need to take Positive Next Steps. I have done several book signings, presentations, and workshops in order to empower more people to live their dreams and make their goals become a reality.


What community-building goals did you accomplish or milestones did you hit in 2019? (<500 characters)

My community building goals have always been to serve the people by giving them the tools and knowledge to move their life and their dreams in a new direction. The milestones that I have hit began by becoming a Certified Master's level in Life Strategies and Results Coaching and receiving the 2019 Gold Medal Winner of Excellence. Another milestone has been that my message is being heard by a vast majority as is evidenced by the direct messages, calls, texts, and emails that I receive on a daily basis. These so often contain the phrase; "You have helped me more than you will ever imagine, thank you". This still resonates so humbly with me, and is what drives me every day. Interacting through one on one sessions, presentations both live and virtual, collaborations with corporations, and doing workshops, are some of the accomplishments that I have hit in 2019. The biggest accomplishments and milestones to me will always be that of being of service to others as they realize they have value and do matter. Receiving a call from an 89 year old man who asked me, very faintly, to please help him attend college with a purpose, before he leaves this life, was most touching in 2019, and I'm pleased to say that after many sessions together, he is enrolled in a degree program that he began in the Fall of 2019. There are so many more life goals and empowering stories I could share with you, if space allowed for it, but for now, I'm looking forward to having more of these community stories in 2020 and beyond! Live your best life and continue to take Positive Next Steps.


What people are saying about Gina Nisco cb...

 Gina is a very strong mentor and thought leader to so many people. She is the Founder and President of Positive Next Steps and College Plan Advisors as well as an Author, Certified Masters Life Coach, Certified Professional Speaker, and College Counselor. I can't think of another person who is always going out of her way to make sure that people are finding their why as well as their purpose in life and is always there with kindness and to lend an ear to listen and to advise people. She has many clients who come to see her and always leave with a better understanding of who they are and a "roadmap" as to how to make their life goals happen. As a side note, Gina was in the fight of her life in 2013 when she was in a near fatal car accident which left her with a TBI, neck  

Leo DeNault

 Mentor, motivator, kind, thought leader, and the list goes on for describing this girl. She deserves to be nominated for this award for her genuine care for the people in her community and elsewhere. Gina’s Company is called Positive Next Steps and that name alone speaks volumes. She radiates positivity and connects with all people she meets. Gina is a person you want to be around.
