Hey, I'm Nicole...LIFE AND BUSINESS MENTOR FOR AVERAGE WOMEN ON EXTRAORDINARY MISSIONS
You guys, ever since I can remember I’ve known I’d do two things. Be my own boss and help people and I’m incredibly blessed to be
able to be doing both!
I’m not really new to creating sources of revenue, I’ve done it since I was 7. If I could imagine it, there wasn’t much me and my cardboard cash register couldn’t do. Yep, my little inner geek made a cardboard cash register complete with the old school credit card impression swipers. OH Yeah, I spared no expense, this baby was top of the line friends! From ticket booth entrances to my backyard circus, selling
your own clothes back to you in my on trend pop-up boutique or the gourmet cheese whiz and ritz crackers I served at my exclusive basement bistro, I was ALWAYS thinking of ways to make money. I’d take household items, food from the cupboard, flowers from the neighbourhood, even clothing from my parents closet, pretend I’d made it or was selling it in my shop and they’d pay me to get it back. Nothing outrageous, if anything I was reasonable, but a quarter here and a dime there quickly filled my bear shaped Kraft Peanut Butter Piggy Banks. Do you guys even remember those or am I just aging myself here? Anyhoo...
You wanna know how potty training went down at little Nicole’s house? Quarters on the back of the toilet is what did the trick for me! I kid you not friends! I was THAT kid! Mmmhmmm
I tried to force myself into the employee world for the better part of 15 years thinking happiness was found at the end of the corporate rainbow rather inside my soul. To my surprise, when I arrived, I only found depression, declining health and a deep lack of purpose and direction.
In 2008, I decided I couldn’t live like that anymore. I began dabbling in various side hustles which felt like a safe way to dunk my toes into the sometimes scary waters of entrepreneurship without risking the stability of my job and the income I relied on. I failed miserably!
Ok, miserably might be a bit harsh, but the truth is while I had drive and passion, I hadn’t found THE thing I really wanted to pursue. And I certainly hadn’t created anywhere near enough income to replace the pretty sweet little salary I was making killing myself for someone who didn’t even know my name.
So I flailed around like a billy goat in a hail storm for a few years until in 2012 I found the beginnings of what would become my niche. I left my job 5 months later and I’ve never looked back. Similarly to the main character in the movie, “Stella’s Got Her Grove Back”...I’d finally found mine. And little did I know, it led me directly to another income stream which then led me to multiple income streams! I had arrived at the end of the home based business rainbow and there was the most fulfilling pot of treasures! I’d found my purpose and passion in helping others and married it with my creative desire to make money.
Sure I stumbled a little, lost my way, but I’d finally found a way to upgrade that cardboard cash register into a MacBook and multiple revenue streams that have supported me and my family for the better part of 8 years now.
And guess what I’m most passionate about now?
Yep, that’s right! Locking arms with YOU and helping guide you to do the same!
