Are you stuck in business & marketing muck? Do you have a specific business or marketing puzzle you need to solve NOW! I can help.

In fact, helping you solve your business puzzle is kind of my thing. I’m not just your coach, I’m  like your personal business & marketing detective. And I can’t rest until the mystery of your business is solved. Until all the questions are answered, all the dots are connected, and your business makes sense.

That’s when we both know you’ve nailed it. Because everything feels so clear and exactly like you.  Because you feel energized and excited to tell the world what you do and how you can help your tribe.

Why Work With Me?

Nicole Croizier LIfe and Marketing Coach

As both a Master Certified Marketing Consultant and Endorsed Soul’s Calling Coach, I combine my background in business, marketing and entrepreneurship with life coaching to help you connect who you are to a business you love.

After more than 20 years (first a corporate marketing executive and then a small business marketing consultant) helping entrepreneurs create & launch their businesses, products and services, I realized that the number one factor that determines success or failure is how ergonomic they are – which means how closely they align their businesses with who they are and what they really want.

Why? Because when you connect who you are to your business & your marketing, you work in a way that is more ergonomic – you are passionate, energized, inspired, motivated and more likely to promote your business and move past challenges and set-backs. You have more energy to give because you are using your unique genius and working in line with your natural flow state.

On the other hand, when you create a business & marketing system based on what you think other people want, financial success alone, or how you think you “should” work, every day can seem like a meaningless struggle, you’re less likely to market your business, and it’s much easier to give up when the going gets rough.
