Meg Nocero is a woman with many talents, strengths, and passions! She is a former Department of Homeland Security attorney and after 19 years of federal government service, she resigned to pursue her dream as a writer, inspirational speaker, a success coach, and an attorney for justice. You may think that she was already living the so-called “American dream,” right? Why would she want to leave such a prestigious career and just go for it? Well, we sat down with this fearless woman and learned so much! Warning: Meg Nocero’s energy is contagious!
So, tell us a little bit about you. Who is Meg at her core?
There is a quote by Roald Dahl, the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, that resonates with me to my core. “And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” That being said, I am a magical person. I truly believe in magic and miracles of this life. And, time and time again, I have found evidence to empower that belief and inspire others to see the world through those eyes so that they can too realize the beauty of their dreams.
Why are you so passionate about helping others?
In April of 2011, I lost my mother to breast cancer and lost my way. To navigate the grieving process, I turned to writing as a healing tool. I wrote what I felt my mother would want to communicate to me. One day led to the next and I completed my first book called The Magical Guide to Bliss: Daily Keys to Unlock Your Dreams, Spirit & Inner Bliss. Here, I empower others to wake up to a universe packed with possibility. In addition to allowing me to feel connected to my mom, it helped me muster the courage to make a career change after twenty years as a federal prosecutor. It is the guide I used to transform my dreams into reality. It is the guide that I offer to others to do the same. I am here to inspire others by sharing my story to believe in the possibility of their dreams.
I am so passionate about helping others because I have myself experienced what St. John of the Cross terms the “dark night of the soul.” I have lost my hope and am beyond grateful for those who offered their talents to bring me back into the light.
