Nicole Staudinger was 32-years-old when she decided to become self-employed with her seminar idea for „Quick-Wittedness for Women.“ A few weeks after a successful start, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. An enormous blow for the mother of two. In the midst of her chemotherapy, she started writing and landed on the Spiegel bestseller list with her debut book, Brüste umständehalber abzugeben. Just one year later her second book, Schlagfertigkeitsqueen, appeared. At the same time she started doing her seminars again, showing women in a humorous way that they need never been speechless again.
