Nadine Nicholson - Thursday, September 08, 2016

Did you start your business for the dream of freedom?

Are you exhausted by how busy you are and worried your personal life is paying the price?


I work with people just like you every day. In our work together, my clients take control
of their time, make more money and become happier at home.

5 easy ways to take a digital vacation this weekend #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Thursday, August 18, 2016

As a business owner you’re constantly connected to a zillion digital-based things. I know I am! At your fingertips are your iPhone, text messages and email stream. And then there’s Facebook, LinkedIn and Google.

The great divide: the biggest challenge for many women in business

Nadine Nicholson - Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Do you ever feel a conflict between growing your business and spending time with your family?

Ever struggle finding the right pace to push things forward to grow your business?

In my interactions with my clients, business partners and other business owners, one of their biggest challenges is their own “gas pedal” and how quickly to grow their businesses.

I know this is certainly the case for me. I’m constantly calibrating how fast I grow. And, it’s not easy.

Like you, I’m a motivated, ambitious person. My business is an expression of my life purpose and it’s important to me to evolve it — so I’m able to fully serve the people I’m meant to serve.

If this is how you feel in your business, what can you do about it?  Read More
