In 2016, Nicole Sauce founded the Living Free in Tennessee podcast, which blossomed into a strong community of independent individuals who provide mutual support. Often, the community joins forces to jumpstart labor-intensive projects for one another. These shared experiences have served as a foundation for trust and goodwill that permeates the community’s culture. The community of doers spans 50 states and 10 countries, working together to “lift all boats.”
Nicole has always been keenly involved in food independence. She founded a coffee roasting company, Holler Roast, starting with a cast-iron skillet and growing to a commercial operation. She also helps people learn hands-on skills such as animal processing, cheese-making, canning, and gardening.
In previous lives, Nicole has worked as a corporate facilitator, a free-market policy diva, and a marketing and training administrator for a translation and language company. She provides marketing advising.
Nicole lives on a homestead in Tennessee, where she and other community members raise pigs and poultry and provide fellowship, healing, and learning opportunities to like-minded souls seeking to build their lives on their own terms.
