  1. Hey Team xoNecole.com! Thank you so much for publishing this enlightening article. Just like Nina Parker, I am on my journey to walking in my purpose. Women like Nina increases my courage and inspiration to do what I love! Writing, marketing, digital media, etc. I love media. I work for a local TV station which is great because I’m gaining experience. The TV station is my foundation to building a much greater path for me in the future. Nina’s story tells me that I am on the right path and to keep pushing and pursuing. I want to be able to inspire and encourage other women to keep going thru the path with all the good, the bad and the ugly. I run a positive entertainment and lifestyle blog and it truly makes me happy. Again, thanks xoNecole.com for such a much-needed story.

    1. As I tell my readers, I am in NO competition with other bloggers. I’m never in a rush to be the FIRST to publish a story. I want people just to enjoy the experience (regardless of pageviews). Enjoy!

    4. Chiara C Clayton I soooooooooo agree with you. I always felt she was better than that show and that that environment was probably not the most comfortable for her…if you know what I mean.

    This is my life! I work in a call center, have a degree in Mass Comm (PR) and spent every other moment writing for my new blog, LetsBreHonest and building my brand. I know I don’t belong here and that I’m destined for me. I am waiting patiently but I may have to take matters into my own hands like Nina. You are an inspiration to me.

    I absolutely love this article. What stood out to me most was she was not willing to settle for a higher paying job that simply was NOT her passion. She continued to pursue until she found her passion. That says a lot because many of us stay in and pursue higher paying positions that have absolutely nothing to do with out passion and calling in life just to build financially yet we’re left feeling empty. Great article!

    So I guess the other lady that’s still on the show, they hired her to take Nina’s place Because they needed someone in her spot. If you know what I mean Rockelle or whatever her name is…..

  7. Wow didn’t know she was fired from TMZ

    (0)
    1. The article
      said she was fired as a RUNNER on TMZ because she wasn’t good at it. She was later brought on as a on air personality when TMZ became a tv show. She quit the show in 2011.

  27. Dana Green says:

    I think they were implying that may ppl are kind of settled in a career at 27 so for her to pack up and leave with no plan was a risk. People are more likely to take risks like that in their early 20’s. But yeah it was still realistic Bc a lot of famous actors didn’t start until their late 30’s +

  53. Miss Mal says:

    This is exactly what I needed to see today. Thank you Nina Parker and thank you so much xoNecole for creating this space! I recently moved back home and I forgot my purpose. I was being dragged down by what people were saying and telling me how to live my life when I already know what the goal is.

    Keep up the good work ladies!

    I just realized she’s the lady from TMZ!
    There should be a reality show about all the people with Mass Comm degrees who work in call centers. They can be joint produces and really blow it up!

  56. I love these stories so much.

  57. I love these inspirational stories and whatever but things don’t work out the same for everyone if you’re reading this remember that

    (-2)
    1. I love these kind of stories too. And you’re right, it doesn’t always work out to be a fairytale in the end. The smart thing to do is save $ and map out your goals and STRATEGIZE how to reach them. Otherwise you’re more likely not going to make it.
