    I’m nicol heard

    Living as a courageous soul and someone who loves being my own boss.   Enjoying the highs, lows and excitement that come with being self-employed.

    Having four business’s after leaving the corporate world, I am very familiar with everything involved in being a success.   How to combine strategies and cut loose what isn’t serving me. I offer you the support, for your business and personal life for you to continue on your journey. We will create together the mindset of worthiness, confidence, self-forgiveness and whole-hearted living.

    Through my strength and support, I help you find their passion and focus for your business to flourish.

    I created Courageous You for the modern businesswoman. Because I love working with women like you, I wanted in on the action. Plus, I am an awesome bestie. You know the kind; you can always pick up the phone and call, and we’ll know exactly where you’re at, gives fantastic advice, but will never tell you something untrue to make you feel better? 

    I use my business and bestie talents to help women create sustainable businesses. Together, we’ve created lots of them. 

    In the online environment, I teach you to show up and be consistent by aligning your purpose, niche and strategy. Together, we create your biz intelligence, supporting you, holding you accountable and give you feedback like all good friends do.  

    “I see you.  I am here for you, do you know what your reason to be an entrepreneur is? You can sell a product or a service.  There isn’t a purpose that isn’t of importance to the world.  The vehicle is how you share this purpose.  You have chosen the challenge and opportunity to create a business to share your purpose.” -Nicol
