The secret weapon to unleash more passion into your work – and drop the comparison trap for good #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, June 15, 2016

By all standards, you are successful. You have clients. You know how to get things done.

But there is probably something even BIGGER you dream of doing.

Maybe you know what it is.

Maybe you just hear something calling to you.

Maybe you can already taste it.  Read More

The #1 cause of feeling stuck and behind – and how to solve it in only 10 minutes a day #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, June 01, 2016

You’re driven to achieve.

You love the thrill of accomplishment.

The buzz of what’s next.

Your results-driven nature is a given.

You’ve got a primal instinct to be more, to do more.

And it’s not going to change.

However, there’s some irony in your drive to achieve.

How to create your own operating principles for referrals and commissions #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Recently, one of my private coaching clients shared this message with me. (Note she gave permission to share this with you.)

“I'm feeling protective of my network. I only want to promote people/events/opportunities that I think are excellent. I think this is coming from a place of being weary of being 'sold to', and feeling like people want access to my network rather than access to me.”


Later, in her coaching call, we dug into it more and what she really wanted was crystal clear.


She wanted to create her own “rules” for what was okay (and not okay) in her business related to referrals and compensation for referrals.

She also wanted this area of her business to feel clear, clean and pure – and not be influenced by money or a sense of obligation around money.

The top 10 tools I use to streamline my business #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, April 27, 2016

The tools and systems available to you to streamline your business are endless.

My clients often tell me how much they like the tools I use to streamline my business.

In fact, they like them so much, one of my recent clients suggested I pull together a list to share here on my blog.

And, so I did.

Some of these tools have affiliate programs that I’m included in. These have an asterisk (*) beside the link. If you choose to try these tools, I may be paid a small referral fee as part of the affiliate program.  Read More

5 lessons from the rugged roads of California #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, April 13, 2016

I just got back from a 10-day road trip in California that was amazing beyond words.

The irony was it happened after getting thoroughly annoyed with an airline.

Here’s the backstory. My coach in California generously gave a bonus, three-day, face-to-face retreat to a group of six clients.

It was during Spring Break in LA from March 30 to April 2. Little did I know how much that would impact the flight costs. Read More

4 little words that have the power to change your life #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, March 30, 2016

Have you ever discovered something profound – and then you realized it was right there under your nose the whole time?

And, even better, you also knew it could make a big difference for other people too?

This just happened to me and I can hardly type fast enough to share it with you.

For the last few years, I’ve been searching for a single focus that will tie all areas of my life together and keep me motivated for the rest of my life.

Did you catch that?

Time makeovers: 3 high-achieving entrepreneurs who stopped exhausting themselves #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Have you ever wanted to make a leap in your business – your next bold move – but then you got tired just from thinking about how much you were ALREADY doing?

You’re ambitious. You love getting results and making things happen. You’ve got a primal instinct to be more, to do more.

And, that instinct is not going to change.

That being said, it’s easy to fall into a trap…

… where you feel like you’re not doing enough and need to work harder and harder just to catch up.

… where you think there’s not enough time in the day to do all there is to do.

… where you worry you’re getting older and running out of time to do what you really want to do. Read More

5 tips to maximize the value of your professional development #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, January 27, 2016

Have you ever invested in a business program and wondered if there were ways to get the most out of it?

Recently, I invested in a year long business coaching program with two brilliant coaches in California.

They are a husband and wife team, and I’m grateful to learn from a married couple navigating both life and business together.

I just returned home after a one-week business retreat with them. It was intensive and pivotal for my development as an entrepreneur – and the difference I’m here to make. Read More

10 harmful words you can stop telling yourself #mejane

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, January 13, 2016

“I just need to get out of my own way.”

Have you ever heard yourself say this?

I know I’ve said this to myself.

Many times.

Until recently, that is.

I’ve decided to no longer tell myself to get out of my own way – and I invite you to look at this harmful statement in a new light for yourself.

Here’s why.  Read More

Nadine Nicholson - Wednesday, December 30, 2015

One of my most favourite things to do in the year is to publish my two-part blog series called, “8 women in business to watch.”

Today, I share four more trailblazers with you.

Each one is raring to go for an incredible 2016, both for their clients and themselves. Read More
