Ready to Love What You Do Again?
Hi! I’m Nicole Croizier – Life Coach, Marketing Strategist, Instructor, and Purpose & Personality Style Junkie
If you’re a passionate woman or aspiring life coach on a journey to finally leave your soul-sucking job behind and create work you love – you’re in the right place!
I’m a 15 year corporate marketing lifer (soul sucking & exhausting) – turned marketing consultant & entrepreneur (even more exhausting) – turned life, equus & soul’s calling coach (inspiring, energizing & finally loving what I do).
Today, I mix up all my experiences into my unique genius cauldron so I can help you finally see how amazing you are, claim your soul’s purpose – and design your right path to doing what you love. This might be a life coaching business, meaning driven career – or something else!
My main focus in 2018 is helping as many new life coaches as possible get their important work out into the world – because the world we’re in right now so badly needs you.
It’s so easy to get stuck on your path as a new life coach – especially if you don’t have a background in business & marketing, especially if you’ve never run a business before – and especially if you haven’t unpacked all the crap you still carry with you from your soul-sucking corporate job.
That’s why I’ve created three programs specifically designed to help aspiring & new life coaches claim their soul’s purpose, jumpstart their businesses, create their first marketing strategies, and then get the partner-in-crime mentorship they need to finally get their important work out of their heads – and into the world.
About Nicole Croizier (Moi!)
From Corporate Marketing to a Life Coaching Business I Love
After 15 years in the corporate marketing world and then running my own marketing consulting business, I knew that I needed more. So I began my journey to become a life coach.
I thought I would leave my business and marketing behind forever and find my true purpose elsewhere. Instead, I discovered a part of business and marketing I truly loved. A place where I knew I could be of real service. That area is helping soul-centered professionals embrace who they really are – and design careers, businesses and marketing systems that they love.
I believe that there are so many amazing soul-centered professionals in the world who aren’t embracing who they are. Who aren’t doing what they love. Who aren’t sharing their unique medicine with their people – and the world so desperately needs you!
And if I can play just a small part in helping more coaches, more passionate women like you get your important voice and work out into the world, then I will have fulfilled my own soul’s purpose – and hopefully helped to make this world a slightly better place for us all.
More About Me – The Bullet Points!
Life Coaching Stuff:

Plus, I’m now part of the team helping to design & deliver their business & marketing training to coaches-in-training.

- Endorsed Soul’s Calling Coach: This means that, yes, I am addicted to learning. BUT it also means I have specific training through the Soul’s Calling Academy (founded by the amazing Bev Barnes) in helping you uncover your unique genius and find your purpose – and – this happens to be my own purpose too. I help passionate solopreneurs connect to their unique genius – so they can claim and DO their purpose.
- Personality Style Coaching: This means that I believe the key to both creating & DOING work you love – requires making sure everything you create is in line with who you are & how you naturally work best (including your marketing!!)- and I am dedicated to staying up to date on the latest in personality psychology to help you connect to what motivates, energizes and inspires YOU.
- My Own Coaching Business: This means I’ve studied & worked with some amazing life coaches and have seen, shared & supported them in their struggles to find & claim their purposes & build & market businesses they love.
Marketing + Business Stuff:
- Master Certified Marketing Consultant through Duct Tape Marketing: This means I’m part of a super-awesome group of marketing consultants (founded by John Jantsch) who train monthly & are always up-to-date on the latest & greatest
- HubSpot Inbound Marketing Partner: This means that I’ve installed & still manage complex online marketing systems through my role as an outsourced VP of Marketing for technology, services, & medical device companies. It also means that while I’m an expert in all things online marketing (yes – all that list building, SEO, online ads & funnels) – I also understand exactly where it fits (or does not fit) in the mix for NEW life coaches just starting out & learning the bascis.
- 20 Years of Diverse Strategic Marketing & Business Fixing Experience: This means I’ve been assession & fixing businesses & marketing for most of my career – quickly understandng new companies, figuring out what’s wrong, missing or just not working with their product mix, ideal clients, messaging, marketing system & people – and then fixing it!
- Solopreneur & Business Owner: This means I know what it’s like to transition from a career to a business – along with all the challenges that come with being an empathic & intutive coach just like you.
- BA in Communication + SOOO Many Marketing Courses: This means, again, that I love learning. And I have to know all the latest stuff so the learning never stops.
Teaching + Curriculum Stuff:
- Curriculum Designer + Instructor for Martha Beck Life Coaching Training: This means I helped develop the business & marketing curriculum for the 2018 Martha Beck Coach Training and will be instructing coaches in training (yay!).
- Post Secondary Program & Training Manager: This means that I managed the curriculum, program design, instruction & marketing for Emergency Management training with a justice & public safety universtiy.

Career Path Design + Recruiting Stuff:
- Recruiter: This means that I worked as a full-time recruiting helping match candidates with marketing, sales, human resources, accounting & technology positions – as well as specific training in recruitment & selection.
- Hiring Manager: This means that I’ve sourced & hired employees in my corporate jobs – and have been contracted to find & hire marketing resources through my marketing consulting busienss.
- Career Coach: This means that for the past 20 years (on the side) I’ve helped friends, family & clients figure out their next right jobs, customize their resumes & cover letters & coach them through the hiring process. Today, I help clients design transition plans from soul-sucking work to careers they love.
- Job Search & Career Agent: This means that as part of my business I acted as a career agent – and found, applied for jobs for clients – including creating & customizing resumes & cover letters and completing job applications.
- Horses!! I love horses and can barely handle the cuteness of my Icelandic mare Chica.
- Dogs!! Getting out in nature & exploring with my dog (and clown puppy) Cosmo (and hubby too) is one of my favorite things in the world.
- Yurts!! I have a yurt on a lake. And I lived in it through a cold Canadian winter last year. I may just be a crazy Canuck!
- Mexico!! I studied Latin America Studies in University and did a field school in Puebla, Mexico that changed my life. Martha Beck often talks about a geographic region that calls to you – and mine is Mexico. More specifically the Yucatan peninsula. Even more specifically Akumal. Just signed up for another Spanish class & loving it.
- Personality Psychology!! I am an ENFP, Kolbe 5392, Enneagram 7, and a scanner. Did I mention I’m a personality junkie? This means that when it comes to figuring out your purpose, direction, and how to stay MOTIVATED & energized when it comes to running a business as a solopreneur (at home – alone – by yourself) – I am my own ideal test subject!! I am SO not your typical entrepreneur & am a very messy marketer – but I’ve made it work (and I love helping other coaches like me make it work too – in non-traditional ways ;))
- Purpose & Genius!! I’m known for saying, “Why is it that I can help other people figure out their genius and purpose but not my own?” Oh right – my purpose IS helping people figure out their genius and purpose (and then actually doing it!). Thanks for the constant reminders Bev & Emma 😉
- Fun!! I took a course by Brene Brown where she forced us to choose ONLY three top values. It was super hard – and the best thing I’ve ever done. I wanted my top values to be super deep, serious and meaningful. Instead – they are Authenticity (ok that one’s pretty good), Learning & Fun. Seriously – fun? But it’s true! As long as I make sure everything I do is in line with these three values – everything works. As soon as I pretend my values are something I think they SHOULD be – everything falls apart. What does this mean for you? It means that coaching with me means we have a lot of fun and there will be laughing.
