I am so excited for you to be here! I’m Nicola. I Pinstagram Strategist. Single Mom. Blogger. Notebook and Stationery Lover.
I am sure you are wondering about me! I started off in an entirely different direction! I didn’t always even believe that blogging or having a successful business online was even a thing! In fact – just a couple of years ago I was going through a mid-life (early) crisis. I was heading back into work after having my son – and you know what? I didn’t know if it was even for me any more. I studied 9 years! 9 dam years to be successful in my career. But it fueled no sparks and no passion. None.
I went on a bit of a career “pilgrimage” and sought mentors, developed relationships and networks. But it all felt empty. Finally, I landed what I thought was my dream job – which meant I had to relocate to a new town with my son. Loved it! But the hours were long – so long! Eye wateringly long. I then got poached by the competition! What an amazing show of the value I was giving. But no! Working for one of the big four meant that competition was rife and they only poached me to destroy the company I was with. They made me redundant within 2 months. I was astounded! I didn’t know what I should do. I went into contracting. Took some skillshare classes and kept myself moving forward even though it was utterly depressing
I finally landed a job at a University, where I was able to study for free and do the work I was “good at”. I might be great at my day job – but I have stopped having the passion I felt for it.
I studied a Diploma in Creativity in 2018. I focused my studies on Instragram, and did a full research project on Instagram and its positive and negative effects. While studying that I grew my Instagram account to over 46K followers. I then focused my attention on Pinterest and have grown my Pinterest to over 6 million views a month.
So why should you trust me to help build your business? Because I built mine from nothing.
I also have an MBA, and that awesome Diploma in Creativity behind me and those tools combine the aspects of creation and business sense. If you want to know what makes me tick? Its coffee, and the joy of seeing other people succeed too!
I’m grateful you are here. Because this is literally the first step you will take to making yourself an amazing business person!
