When loyalty to others becomes disloyalty to you #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, November 15, 2017

As a business owner and leader, you need to partner and collaborate with others to achieve your desires and goals.

My hunch is you feel a sense of deep loyalty to many of these people and partnerships.

Have you ever asked yourself when your loyalty to others is actually creating disloyalty to yourself?

Why you need to uncover the exact catalyst driving your next bold move #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, June 29, 2016

You work hard. Although business is going pretty well, you are probably feeling overwhelmed, possibly frustrated and alone.

If you have a spouse, he or she may not even know what your goal is, or why you want it so much.

You are used to achieving amazing things on your own.

That’s probably worked pretty well for you in the past, but lately, it’s been feeling like something is missing.

You are tired of feeling like you are doing this all by yourself.  Read More

5 lessons from Brene Brown and Martha Stewart: failing, fear and not knowing #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, May 06, 2015

Recently I had the opportunity to go to The Art of Leadership for Women Conference in Calgary, Canada.

This was a conference for women with missions to make a bigger difference and the world a better place.

It’s for people who have big dreams, ideas, missions, courage — and want to create a movement of good in the world — no matter how small or big the scale.

Kind of sounds like you? Yes, I’d say so!

There were 1,500 people (mostly women) there. Now, that’s A LOT of go-getting women in business in one room! Read More

3 things you ought to learn from the wilderness #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, May 28, 2014

The wilderness has a lot to teach you as an entrepreneur.

Last weekend, I headed out to a small town in the mountains for a wilderness first aid course.

We learned how to be first responders in the backcountry to get injured people stabilized, safe and cared for with the appropriate medical treatment.

We responded to all sorts of practice scenarios like: sprains, cuts, broken bones, protruding bones, hypothermia, hyperthermia, dehydration, spider bites, bear attacks, asthma attacks and head injuries.

We even had fake blood and fake protruding bones!

I feel much more confident helping my family, friends and any passersby in the backcountry, or anywhere for that matter.  Read More

Why I was afraid to lead

Nadine Nicholson - Monday, April 29, 2013

You have a purpose. It's the reason you were born at this particular time in history.

You're here to have an impact – to make the world a better place, no matter the size or scope of that impact.

Having the courage to live your purpose takes LEADERSHIP.


It means you get out there, go after your dreams, influence others' lives, take action even when you might fail, and make the best use of your resources.

It means organizing yourself and others to achieve a common goal (your purpose!) and enrolling them in the excitement and meaning that purpose has in this world. Read More

Have a more powerful impact, guaranteed

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, February 09, 2011

Thinking back, I clearly remember returning from the last of four retreats in a 10-month leadership program in California about a year and a half ago.

It’s hard to put into words how completely life changing this journey was for me.

Karen and Henry Kimsey-House were my program leaders. If you know anything about coaching, you’ll know they founded Coaches Training Institute and designed CTI’s leadership program.

They are literally the gurus of leadershipRead More

Adventurous lessons you need to know

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, February 02, 2011

You know when you do something you remember for the rest of your life? Something you didn’t think you could do yet you nailed it? Something which taught you life lessons?

Last year I did an adventure race called Mission Impossible in the Rocky Mountains. It was a 40 km run / hike and 20 km bike with teams of three. Our team came in fifth of 30+ teams, in just under 9.5 hours.

I was thinking back on the race recently and realized my experience directly correlates to being a successful woman in business online.  Read More
