Connect Who You Are To Work You Love

Are You An Empathic Entrepreneur?
It's about more than loving WHAT you do. It's loving HOW you do it.

Finally Create & Do Work You Love
Because It Fits Who You Are

You’re a difference maker – a coach, consultant or other Empathic Entrepreneur™.
And you ache to do meaningful work, to make a difference, to do what you love, to share your important message with the world. But you’re stuck.

You might be stuck because you’re not clear on your genius, your purpose, or the true soul focus for your business. Or maybe you KNOW your purpose, but have no idea how to bring that to life in a real and tangible way. Or maybe you’ve built a business around what you THOUGHT was your soul’s purpose, but are waking up tired, frustrated & dreading each day.

Hi! I’m Nicole – Endorsed Soul’s Calling Coach, Master Certified Marketing Consultant, & Martha Beck Institute Instructor. And I help difference makers & Empathic Entrepreneurs™ like you uncover the true purpose & focus for your work – and bring it to life in a real, concrete & tangible way – a way that uniquely fits who YOU are and how YOU uniquely work best. So you can finally do WHAT you love in a WAY you love - and make the difference you were born to make.

I know, because I’m an Empathic Entrepreneur™ just like you. In fact, I’ve spent my 20 year corporate & entrepreneurial career searching for my purpose, and learning how to “fix” my work by connecting who I am to everything I do – whether it was my marketing job, marketing consulting business, or coaching career.

And now as an Endorsed Soul’s Calling Coach, I am finally doing what I love in a way I love.
I know it’s possible – and I’d love to help you bypass the years (ok decades) of frustration I went through. And that’s what my programs are all about:

Nicole’s Love Your Business Again Program created a huge impact on how we manage our business, and what products and services we focus on. Being a husband and wife team we need to divide up work based on our strengths and stay in our power zones when working for our clients. Nicole’s program gave us clarity about ourselves, our strengths and our dreams together and individually. We made critical decisions that have brought more peace into our business by focusing more on what we love to do and unlocking higher profits while doing it. Amazing!

Why Building Your Business Like a “Typical” Entrepreneur Doesn’t Work for Most Life Coaches

If you’re a new life coach or heart-centered entrepreneur, who has left (or is leaving) your career to start a passion-based business you love for the first time - then you likely aren’t a typical entrepreneur. The Oxford dictionary defines an entrepreneur as: “A person who sets up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit.” Does that sound like you? Probably not. Typical entrepreneurs tend to have a passion for entrepreneurship and business building in and of itself, and their main motivation for being in business is money & growth. Typical entrepreneurs also tend to already be well-versed in business & marketing, and have likely come from careers related to sales, finance or marketing – or have already run previous businesses. Heart-centered entrepreneurs tend to be a bit different in three key ways: Their main motiv... Continue Reading →

Why Targeting Your “True” Ideal Client Can Be Scary

In 2010 I left the corporate marketing world and launched my own business as a small business marketing consultant. The transition seemed easy at the time. I had no problem marketing my services to my “ideal” clients. I was clear about how I could help them. I wasn’t worried about what they thought about me.  I had no problem saying “no” to clients I didn’t want to work with. And if any of my clients questioned anything I was doing, I saw it as an opportunity for learning and education. No painful thoughts or limiting beliefs got in the way. Everything was great. Except that a year into my business I realized that I was dreading getting up in the morning. I didn’t want to go to client meetings. I didn’t want any new clients. I was starting to hate my business. Two years in, I was exhausted. That’s when I realized the way I was feeling about my new busine... Continue Reading →

The Key to Your Soul’s Purpose? Remember Who You REALLY Are

You’ve spent too many years to count in a corporate job that slowly sucked the life out of you. Now, you’ve completed coach training and you’re ready to finally do what you love, finally get your important work out into the world. But you’re stuck. You might think you’re stuck because you can’t figure out your purpose... Or because you can’t get the messaging right for your website... Or because you don’t know your niche... Or because you hate marketing... Or because you can’t identify your one perfect job. But maybe the real reason you’re stuck is because after so many years in the corporate world, you’ve lost sight of who you really are. And when you’re not connected to who you are – it’s nearly impossible to create work you love. Which keeps you stuck in a job you hate. Which keeps the world from experiencing your true gifts. And yo... Continue Reading →

Why You Shouldn’t Make $100K in Your First Year as a Coach

I know this is a bit of a controversial subject. Especially with all those messages out there about how you should be able to make $100k in your first year as a coach. And I’m not saying it’s not possible. It absolutely is. Especially if you’ve run a business before, have a background in business & marketing or come from a sales-oriented background. Especially if your new coaching business is directly related to what you did before in your business or career. Especially if you’re clear on your purpose - and know right now exactly who you want to help and how. Especially if you’ve logged many hours coaching & are super comfortable & confident in your abilities. Even more possible if it’s all four of the above. But what if you don’t have a background in business & marketing? What if you’ve never run a business before? What if you know... Continue Reading →

My Accidental Career Experiment

It’s easy to get stuck in a career that you don’t love. I know because I’ve been there. I spent more than 16 years in the corporate world as a recruiter, VP of marketing, marketing director, brand manager, corporate communications manager, program manager, and on and on. Yes, in total about 12 different companies and roles altogether. In 16 years. That definitely qualified me at the time as a serial job hopper. But, I always left for something bigger, better and higher paying – so society (and my parents!) forgave me and saw me as “successful” and not flaky (or at least that's what I thought at the time). Like many people, when I realized that my chosen profession (that I was trained in and really good at) was really not my true passion and purpose (ok, well it started to feel like gnawing my arm off would be more fun), instead of taking a deep look inside to figu...
