Hi there! I’m Nicola
My mission is to help as many creative business owners as possible, just like you, to build and grow a successful business. So you can spend you time doing what you love and you are great at, and (this is the best part!) get paid to do it!!
Something especially close to my heart (I learnt the hard way!) is that for any marketing to be successful, the person behind needs to be believe in themselves and what they are doing. Many artists, makers and clever creative people particularly really struggle with this, and end up under pricing or giving away their time and skills for free. My priority is for you to have some really exciting AHA marketing moments but also to have the confidence to discover your true value and go for it!
A few random facts about me!
Fifteen years ago I started my full-time self employed journey with my (very successful) creative business making and selling handmade stationery.
I worked as a professional photographer – photographing Prime Ministers, and Celebrities, to school kids. I’ve taken advertising shots for Saatchi and Saatchii.
I’m a grade 8, with distinction, clarinetist (I’m very proud about the distinction!), though I haven’t played in a while!
I’m married with two wonderful children and a pet dog called Jessie.
I used to teach photography at my local award winning college and afterwards ran their busy marketing department generating new business, and building their reputation.
I was Chartered Institute Of Marketing qualified (then realised I preferred practical and proven to theoretical!)
My motto is, Make Believe To Succeed!
I want to help you take the skills, talents and expertise you already have, to create the business you dream about; to become a recognised expert in your own field, to have loyal customers who love to tell their friends about you, and an audience who admire, interact and love you and, of course, can’t wait to buy from you.
If you are ready to stop dreaming and start doing, if you want nonsense, practical and proven guidance in a friendly, fun and supportive community you are in the right place and I can’t wait to work with you!
