Feeling overwhelmed? 6 reasons why "powering through" is not the answer

Nadine Nicholson - Thursday, December 08, 2011

Do you get the feeling most people are pretty stressed right about now?

Last week when the calendar flipped to December 1, it felt like the world held in its breath and has been holding it ever since.

My massage therapist, who’s been doing his craft for 15 years, said this year stands out from all his others. He says the majority of his patients are “done with 2011 and ready to put it behind them.”

I just held a teleclass with an incredible group of women to help them develop their vision for 2012.  Read More

Are you spending time on the right stuff?

One of the mistakes I see entrepreneurs making over and over (and I was guilty of this too) is to put client relationship building on the back burner in exchange for getting stuff done and out the door.

I get it. Having your own business comes with a big work load.

You are trying to keep up.

I also believe it's not a luxury to proactively build client relationships. It’s FUNDAMENTAL for you to be ABLE to do your best work.

What if what you actually want feels like a consolation prize?

I was recently on the phone with a game changer. Let’s just say she’s a highly successful leader and has a big influence in the communications profession.

She’s outgrown her current role and wants to advance. In fact, many of my coaching clients are in that boat.

She wanted my insight on a big opportunity that has come her way.

About 10 minutes into our call I got a funny feeling in my stomach.  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
