Areas of Potential
At the height of her popularity, Nell regularly filled auditoriums and sold out her lectures at business conferences (granted, the companies usually bought the tickets for their employees, but still...). Even in her soft beginnings as a late-night TV mirage ("buy the Building Confidence tape set today, and get the 'I am Confident' mug and 'I Control Me' mousepad for free"), Nell had a certain talent for encouragement and motivation. More than that though, Nell always had a certain need to talk, persuade, teach, motivate, convince, and shepherd others to new heights & thrills & braveries. Nell feels best when she's interacting (/leading) a group of people who trust her, who look up to her, who she cares about and wants to see succeed. She sees a direct relationship between the power she holds and the goodness she can do; she regularly seeks out that kind of power & influence.
As an occasional guest and (loosely-termed) "expert" on a handful of daytime talk & lifestyle shows--usually ones touting the new "It" scare or solution--Nell became known for a wry, acerbic wit that, tempered with her good-nature and very marketable delivery, was easy television gold. She was an attractive, intelligent woman who believed what you believed and could chuck skeptics with a soft-sharp sarcasm usually reserved for children. Now that she's a little older, that sly delivery fits her even better. She's a keen, mature guest with an inviting sort of impishness that simmers & waits for you to catch up.
Nell likes the idea of so many things. She likes the idea of astrology, she likes the idea of psychics, she likes the idea of feng shui, of piety, of positive thinking (the only reason some people don't succeed is that they're holding themselves back), alternative medicine (the only reason we don't all live forever is that we haven't tried it the right way yet), of marriage (with Richard, my life will be complete), motherhood (well, maybe with Laura my life will be complete instead), miracles, success... Nell is and has always been the consummate romantic. To this end, she's prone to too many phases and quick trends, but she does it in the sincere belief that there is an answer and she just hasn't found and perfected it yet. Once she does, everything will be OK again. Not just for her, but for everyone else too. She chases this idealism relentlessly, & with a certain starry-eyed, utopian insistence.
Known Risk Factors
What insists on being up ("we can will ourselves to health and happiness") must come down. Nell is hardly a stable, steady person. She's both prone to manic bursts of productivity and angry, frustrated funks. She's been historically plagued by doubt (self, spiritual, & otherwise) and has a lot of trouble recognizing and coping with turbulence. Many of her personal habits/teachings naturally aggravate her mood and exacerbate the fallout. In her pursuit of idealism and rejection of traditional forms of help, she tends to do a great deal of damage to herself & others. We'd also be lying if we said that the woman who patented "Sleep Your Way Tonight to No Beers Tomorrow" didn't have a certain weakness for such classic medications herself.
Nell is the product of an American upbringing. She sincerely wants to find an answer to things, and she sincerely wants to share it with people, and for her the only thing that translates these goals is Success, the only medium she can think of to measure her Success is business, and the only unit of measurement is dollar signs. To this end, Nell can be brutal in exacting her purpose, and when that still feels empty and unfulfilling (because it's just $$$), or when that falters, or fails, or brushes up the wrong way against reality, she's been known to be capable of reprehensible cruelties and negligence. A stubborn, determined, and desperate individual, pointed at a false finish line, armed with a greater purpose, an intense need/lack, thinks she's on the right side of God, *has to be* or she's staring at nothing, Nell is a dangerous competitor.
For all the books she's published, talks she's given, hands she's shaken, and people she's promised things to, Nell has curiously few official accolades. She used be a nurse, but let that license lapse well over a decade ago. She was once an aspirant nun, but as you can see that aspiration didn't pan out. As a matter of fact, Nell's motivation and justification for "helping people" initially was just that a) she'd read a lot of other people's self-help books already and b) she liked to do it! Nell's never had any psychological training, sociological study, spiritual accreditation, or formal expertise. She collects her knowledge and beliefs from unvetted sources and convenient claims, and then hocks them not only as truth but also the answer you've been looking for all this time. "Fact" can be relative to Nell, and it certainly takes second, third, or fourth place behind idealism, success, and the soundness and surety of her own delusions.
