Best-Selling Author Earns Partnership With Steve Harvey

Six-time New York Times bestselling author Lisa Nichols has a new project up her sleeve.

Nichols has announced her new multi-year partnership with the Steve Harvey companies.

Nichols is the CEO and founder of the multi-million dollar company Motivating the Masses, which provides business coaching and professional and management development to a clientele of business owners, managers and entrepreneurs, which include Proctor & Gamble.

Harvey came to Nichols and asked if she could lead the "creation of a new division under the Steve Harvey umbrella that will focus on breakthrough and self-development," according to a press release from Nichols.

Nichols started off as a struggling single mom before owning a multi-million dollar company. Her success has also earned appearances on: the "Oprah Winfrey Show," "Extra," "Larry King Live" and a starring role on the Emmy Award-winning show,"Starting Over."

Nichols' new division, with the Steve Harvey companies, will focus on breakthroughs and self-development.

What a great success story; I guess hard work does pay off. Tell us what you think about the new partnership!
