Helping you discover life doesn’t have to be pain free to be full, then go live it...


More importantly, I'm a THRIVER who's all about helping you squeeze the juice out of life no matter what gets thrown your way.

Doesn’t that sound good?

If you’re like me, and I suspect you are, when life slaps you around the face you hunker down and battle on, your stiff upper lip firmly in place, telling yourself you’re fine, when you’re anything but.

We ugly cry in the shower, struggle to pray, then soldier on.

We laugh when all we want to do is scream.

We put life on hold until we’re through our grief, cancer, break up, depression or whatever else has shattered our world.

Then we’re left merely surviving a life we didn’t sign up for.
It’s no fun at all. (A British understatement of biblical proportion)

How do I know? Because I was there.

Now I help people like you break out of survival mode so they can thrive, not just survive, no matter what.

A bit of MY STORY...


Having lost my mum and sister to cancer I was diagnosed ... with rectal cancer.

Yup you read that right, rectal cancer.

It’s not sexy and doesn’t come with a pretty pink bow but there it was – a tumor the size of a double stuffed Oreo up where the sun doesn’t shine.

Had the heat seeking missile of death locked in on me?
Had I done something to deserve this?
Was God off answering the prayers of women who didn’t scream at their kids or tell rude jokes at bible study?

Then I met some folks who called themselves cancer THRIVERS, not cancer survivors.

And I wanted that!

Thriving sounded so much more alive, hopeful and dusted with colorful sprinkles, than the life I was merely surviving.

So I set out to learn how.

Life still stunk like a week old tuna sandwich but I was learning to hold hands with both the good and bad.

Joy and pain. Laughter and tears. Loneliness and friendship. Doubts and faith. Peace and fear. Hope and worry. Chemo and cookies.

Friend, when life beats you up, steals your joy and poops on you from a great height, it really is possible to thrive, not just survive.


Would you like to do the same?


Are you ready to stop merely surviving and start thriving right where you are?

Niki Hardy


Don’t for one minute think I’ve found the golden unicorn life and live in a constant state of bliss, soaking in God’s abundance.

Far from it.

Adulting is hard. Stuff rocks my world on a regular basis and I don’t always handle it well.

I’m still sarcastic, mildly passive aggressive, and prone to hissy fits when things get bad, but I’m thriving a little bit more each day and that’s my prayer for you too.


  • I can’t wink. No, I really can’t. I just blink, so please don’t ask!
  • I’d rather run trails with my dogs than get my nails done.
  • My only claim to fame is being in the same grade as actress Rachel Weisz (who’s married to Bond star Daniel Craig).
  • I got swept out to sea by a rip tide and nearly drowned.
  • I once stole a bra. A very unsexy bra.
  • My American accent is absolutely terrible.
