Nikki Bell is an experienced therapist, teacher, and clinician, and yet when she decided to transition, she still wanted to get the experience to be comfortable in being a coach.
She balanced her business, additional side work, her husband working a third shift, and three young children of varying ages. She uses the concept of blocking off times to ensure that she is focused and present for what she planned ahead of time. She talks about why she does quarterly goals instead of a big year end goal and explains how she breaks it all down. She talks about her number one question she asks herself when planning her goals and it’s probably not what you’d expect. Nikki gives a great tip on balancing when you have a baby at home and try to work at the same time. She’s proud of ditching her fears, forgoing all of the formal education that she received and pivoting to another world, the world of coaching. It took a while to get buy in from her family, but she overcame her fears.
I’m Nikki. I’m a Strategic Life Planner & Business Consultant. I help Moms get their “ish” together and create their dream business. Amongst other things, I’m also a wife and mom of three wild and crazy children. I have one daughter and two sons. Between the three of them there is never a dull moment in my home; nor is there a peaceful one. When I’m not refereeing or redirecting traffic in my home, a.k.a. sending people to their rooms, one can find me somewhere with my laptop or notebook working. My favorite time to work is early morning while everyone is asleep. I absolutely love day planners and organizational tools. Dancing, reading and scrapbooking are a few of my favorite things to do. I’m an extroverted introvert; meaning I love people but enjoy my moments of solitude as well. I’m pretty straight forward but tactful. I don’t make excuses and always search for the positive in every situation. I believe that….”A Mom’s life is just different.”You can only take a client as far as you've been. And if you've never been under a great coach, you don't know what that's like.
