Clare Goodwin - Personal Trainer and Pilates Instructor
There are many people out there who offer their services in business coaching and development. Nicola however, is a mentor with a difference. She has had a really positive effect not just on my business development but on my confidence as well.
Fundamentally she delivers ideas, tasks and strategies that allow you to develop your business in a way that is right for you. The difference is that not only does she get you to take a look at the gaps in your business model and how to practically develop and improve things, she also gets you to take a good look at you and why you do what you do. This wider understanding of why I do what I do and being able to articulate those ideas concisely has been invaluable in developing a strong and successful identity and product. It makes all aspects of developing, advertising and talking about my business easier.
Having gone through an amazing personal and professional journey herself, Nicola is able to bring more than a text book to the table. She is able to combine a logical and thorough understanding of what it takes to run a successful business with a deep belief in a holistic approach; where taking care of you, your values and your desires leads to greater success. Running a wellness business myself, it was important to me to be able to live by the values I preach and to protect my own health whilst still be able to develop a strong business. These concepts seemed exclusive until working with Nicola.
As if all of that were not enough, Nicola’s deep-rooted, personal passion for what she delivers and genuine interest in my development, have made me feel supported. I have indeed picked her brains and lent on her outside of group sessions more than once and feel I can continue to do so.
Juggling a young family, undertaking continued professional development and deciding to take my business in a new direction has meant that my journey has taken longer than it might for others. That said, I am always able to sit at my desk and revisit the work I have done with Nicola and I am always able to get in touch when I need advice or direction. But best of all, the business is developing in a way I love, profit is up and I am truly reaping the rewards.
