professional coaching business success mastery

Hi, I'm Nicola

I'm here to help you discover what you most love doing, and spend more time doing it!


Twelve years ago, I co-founded one of the world’s first online executive coaching companies and helped develop it into a multimillion-dollar business that pioneered a new approach to inspiring leaders at the highest levels.

 What I discovered along the way was: self-sacrifice, hard work, long hours and stress are the unspoken recipe for success for most top global companies, and  – although they may pay lip-service to investing in the wellbeing of their people – they’re not usually willing to surrender that approach.

This is your invitation to be part of a movement where we do things differently…



I now work 1:1 with top-level executives, CEOs and entrepreneurs to help them own their innate gifts and claim their big visions, so they can step forward as empowered leaders who are fully in tune with their genius and totally in love with what they do.

Together, we redefine what leadership and success mean for them — and by changing the way that industry leaders and influencers understand those things, we’re transforming businesses across the world from the inside out. 

That’s because stepping into your genius will not only give you access to new inspired levels of creativity it will also allow you to step into your purpose and harness your gifts in a way which serves YOU! 

7 glimpses into how I got here

1. I co-founded one of the world’s first online executive coaching companies… and helped build it into a multimillion dollar business
That company was one of the highlights of my entrepreneurial journey, as it combined my passion for business with my love of inspiring people to do things they never imagined possible, and saw me coaching senior leaders at some of the biggest companies from all over the world to develop more inspired models and systems of integrated leadership.
2. Eventually, I walked away from that company
As that business grew and became more successful, it took on all the hallmarks of a ‘corporate’... and I found myself operating in full-on burnout mode (yet again!) Ultimately, I found the courage to step away — and founded my own business where I now coach highly successful people to avoid this same trap by operating in their unique zones of genius, while tapping into their deepest sense of purpose to create more fulfilling lives.
3. I truly believe that ANYTHING is possible
Because if it isn’t, then what’s the point? I also believe that life should feel as magical as possible — more like an adventure and NOT like a list of achievements we have to tick off in order to ‘prove’ ourselves. I even gave my youngest daughter a magical name — Avalon — because The Mists of Avalon is my favourite book and represents the power of claiming your magical gifts. I also recently dyed my hair pink — just because it felt magical (and fun!) to do.
4. I’m someone who believes in challenging the status quo — but NOT in having to ‘fake it to make it’
I spent too much time in my early twenties ‘white-knuckling’ the steering wheel on my way to work, because I felt totally unqualified for my first job at one of Australia’s biggest radio stations. Years later, even after climbing to the top of the corporate ladder (and running the magazine division for the country’s top newspaper company), I still couldn’t shake that ‘not good enough’ feeling. Now I believe in finding your zone of genius — and trusting you’re the best in the world at what you most love to do!
5. My parenting philosophy is that I want my daughters to feel INSPIRED
I always wanted to inspire my girls to find that ‘one thing’ that they were truly passionate about (which wasn’t school!), and give them an early experience of pursuing their dreams. Scarlet is now a nationally recognised soccer player and Avalon is an amazing top-level dancer. But that parenting philosophy is NOT about their achievements — it’s about helping them recognise what it means to do something they love, so they can develop a different type of belief in themselves.
6. I’m a bit of a ‘good girl’ with a strong inner rebel
I was always good at school and excelled in music — even singing in two operas before the age of 12 at the Sydney Opera House! Then, when I was 17, I rebelled against my ‘good girl’ persona — dropping out of my Bachelor of Arts degree to backpack up the North Coast of Australia for six months (with my ‘bad boy’ boyfriend!) Now, my rebellion is more about helping high achievers — like YOU — tear up the old success ‘rulebook’ to become the type of visionary leader you actually enjoy being.
7. I think that society trains too many of us to believe (that in order to be successful) we’re meant to feel BAD... and I want to change that
Far too many people are so accustomed to feeling dissatisfied, exhausted or miserable that they subconsciously believe THIS is the road to ‘success’. It’s not! But many don’t even realise what’s happening until YEARS of their life have already gone by, with them only rarely feeling like they’re doing something which TRULY makes them happy. Everyone has a soul purpose they’re here to fulfill — and I want to help you find yours.
Are you ready...

… for a new approach – one which will inspire you to unlock your own unique brand of magic so you can use it to step into an entirely new plane of success no “effort-ing” required.

Most people in business are placing their focus on WHAT they do, and HOW they do it.
Or in other words they’re trying to build their businesses from the outside-in!
But people aren’t drawn to WHAT you do, or even HOW you do it – instead they are drawn to what you BELIEVE.
And that’s about tuning into your own personal WHY – which is far less about how clever or committed you are and far more about how excited you feel! 
Building your business will start to feel easy when who you are – and what you do – are naturally given a chance to align.
