Hi I’m Nicola…
FOUNDER OF THE THRIVING BUSINESS MUMS CLUB
It is my mission to help mums raise their business babies.
The juggle is real but by understanding your habits and time drain plus having great business systems and marketing; you & your business can thrive.
Commit to being who you need to be to have the business and life of your dreams.
I agree with Tony Robbins who says success is about 20% skill and the rest is psychology. Commit to showing up, get visible and accept you can learn anything.
Every day is an opportunity!
I’ll help you find that peaceful middle ground between switched on business owner and present parent.
Uncover the 5 vital steps required for business mum brilliance
WORKING FOR SOMEONE ELSE WAS TRICKY
After being a stay at home mum to our 3 kids, I went back to work in a sales & marketing role 3 days a week for a brief 6 months. It soon became clear that combining work in someone else’s 9 to 5 AND having kids was going to be challenging for all of us as we have little family support.
So, I set up my own work from home marketing business.
I had been out of the work force for 8 years but I had a drive to make my own business happen. The world had well and truly moved on from when I was last in the workforce and I quickly had to catch up.
I HAD a big hill to climb!
I had no clue what was required from me to have a successful business. My success mindset was non existent, my organisation and time management were all over the place and my marketing knowledge needed updating!
10 THINGS I HAVE LEARNED
FROM STARTING A SMALL BUSINESS AND
WHY I LOVE BEING SELF EMPLOYED!
SO BEGAN THE JOURNEY TO UPSKILL
I started on a journey of self development and increasing my knowledge in digital marketing.
I had to get over the story of being time poor and the imposter syndrome of not believing in myself.
I worked with clients doing mostly digitial marketing and designing websites but then I started teaching other mums in business about online marketing, social media and content production.
you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink!
It became clear that many female business owners struggled with the same problems as me. Juggling all the balls was top of the list.
I found I was teaching women all the marketing skills they required but I couldn’t actually make them change their habits and put their new knowledge into practice.
This is when my focus changed to productivity and mindset. I realised that structure and systems as well as a success mindset are essential to actually getting the work done.
I continue to go on a journey of reading business books, working on my mindset, finding better ways to do things, creating a more entreprenerial focus to my business and working with many clients in different industries.
In February 2020 I completed an NLP Coaching Certificate so I can continue to confidently help women in business.
HELPING MUMS IN BUSINESS
The more business mums I work with, the more I hear how time is our most precious resource. We have the guilt of not having enough time for our business nor for our family. The struggle is real.
I can help you to work on yourself and your skills to build a business that fills you with joy.
THRIVING BUSINESS MUMS CLUB

A bit more bla bla bla about me….some (not-so-interesting) facts!
Orginally from the UK (I’m an Essex girl!), I’ve lived in Western Australia for 14 years
My 3 kids are 12, 10 & 7
We have a cute little rescue terrier x jack russel dog called Happy.
I luuuurve our chooks. They are my ultimate distraction and are my biggest time waster! I could literally watch them for hours.
We like to go bush camping to get away from it all in the school holidays.
I like fashion and prefer winter clothes.
My hobbies include the gym, patchwork & yoga. But honestly the majority of my time outside of running my business is spent running our 3 kids to various activities!
We have a converted mud brick shed on Airbnb. If you find yourself in the south west of Western Australia; get in touch!
