From Beauty Pageants to Entrepreneurship : Nicole Eacuello Knows How To Cultivate Wine Business

Nearly everyone who’s enjoyed a good glass of Chardonnay (or better yet, visited the vineyard that produced it) has fantasized about going into the wine business. After all, not only is wine one of life’s great pleasures, it’s also a big business in the United States. Retailers, restaurants and wineries all saw sales increases in 2016, swelling the size of the market for U.S. wine to more than $38 billion. 

The gorgeous Nicole Eacuello, who'll be competing for the crown of Miss Massachusetts USA later this year, is currently running her family’s wine importing business - "We import from across Italy, and work closely with a handful of family-run vineyards. It’s an amazing experience that has helped me continue to develop my leadership and entrepreneurial skills" - she explained.

She also loves the flexibility of making her own schedule, which allows her to dedicate time to her other passions, including writing for her fashion blog, volunteering, and training to hit the Miss Massachusetts USA stage! 

Here we bring you the untold facts about Nicole’s life and also her ideas, objectives and opinions… Have a look!

Many misses have said that their dream since a child was to participate in a pageant as prestigious as Miss World (or Miss Universe). It this your case ? And if so, why ?

When I was five-years-old, my dream job was to be both a dentist (I loved people’s smiles) and Miss Universe! I grew up watching the pageant with my grandmother, my Mimi, and remember thinking the women on stage were like princesses. With age, I’d learn that the responsibilities of Miss Universe are much more than just wearing a pretty crown. Flash forward 20 years later, and my love of seeing people smile is the reason why I still dream of becoming Miss Universe! I am very proud and dedicated to the work I do with childhood education and empowerment within Massachusetts, and I am determined to grow this to the national, and global level.

What would you advise any young girl out there who has a dream of being a queen one day? 

Be kind to the people around you, believe in yourself, and always try your hardest. If you can do all of those things, you are already a queen.

Nicole's fashion blog is based around affordable style - "I want to empower women of all shapes and sizes to love their look!"
