Without Nicola my business may never have happened
After I left my job as an IT security consultant at one of the big four consultancy firms, I set out to set up my own business. Having never had my own business and with very limited business knowledge and only passion for what I was about to do, I knew I needed help to get started. When I met Nicola, I knew she was the person I wanted to work with. She is just as personable as she is knowledgeable and with her keen emphasis on work/life balance, I knew she would help me to not fall back into old habits of working myself into the ground.
With any prior business experience, every aspect of starting my own business was both scary and challenging for me. Knowing I have Nicola’s support and knowledge to guide me through is tremendously helpful. She has a structured approach and helped me not only understand and organise my business tasks, but also structure my life in a better way. I gained more clarity on what is important to me and what needed to be prioritised at any given moment. Apart from sharing her knowledge of business, she taught me valuable tools that will enable me to continue working in this structured approach for years to come.
Thanks to working with Nicola, my business got off the ground to a flying start. I feel that Nicola really understands my challenges as well as my requirements and the expectations I have both from my business and myself. This has enabled her to completely tailor her approach around my needs. I have a clear vision for the future of my business and a structured path to get there.
Working with Nicola has been invaluable to me. I have always been part of a team and even just being able to tell someone about all the stuff that I have done has been amazing. Imagine working away on your own and nobody sees it. Sometimes I just need to say “Look at all that I have done today” and to have someone to pat me on the shoulder and say “well done you”. This is Nicola. Encouraging and supportive with a flexible approach to anything I threw her way, Nicola has been the midwife in the birth of my business baby. Without Nicola, starting my business would have been so much harder and may have never happened.
