Boss Mom Spotlight – Nicole Terrell
We want you to meet Nicole Terrell
Nicole is a trauma-informed manifestation coach whose mission is to help women create the lives that they daydream of through navigating their healing journey.
Share a bit about your Boss Mom journey:
I began to find my strength as I left a 10 year marriage at 31. I had been reading spirituality and personal development books for awhile and found my opportunity to escape a very toxic and unhealthy relationship with my 2 kids at the time and found myself quickly in a relationship that felt much safer, yet had some similar characteristics as the first one. Along the way I found that my passion was learning about what had brought me to this point and what I needed to do to believe in myself and love myself fully. I went to school to be a life coach while navigating personal challenges that I realized were patterns that had played out many times in my life.
I learned that the lessons we need to learn keep presenting themselves until we learn them, so I found my courage to stay as I continued to work on myself during the challenges of my relationship. All the while my life coaching business wasn’t growing because I was deep in my own personal work.
During that time I felt discouraged and ended up posting those feelings in the Boss Mom group (which I had found as my home with so much goodness that Dana shared along with the amazing women in the community) and Dana responded. After sharing my story with her she generously offered to give me a chance as a VA and I jumped at the opportunity.
From there my VA business grew to a point where I began to believe in myself and finally had the confidence to leave my second marriage that had become unhealthy and make a leap for myself. I continued to do my personal healing work, and found moon rituals to be a magical part of my commitment to myself, and through them I was able to continue to grow and find deeper layers of healing as well as more mind blowing magic in my life.
I worked with so many amazing women along the way, and learned so much to where I finally began to trust myself enough to start going after my original goal of coaching with a deeper understanding of what goes into healing as well as how to navigate that with a glimmer of magic so that I can bring my own wild authenticity to the work I do with women, helping them to find their way through their own healing journey and reconnect with their most authentic selves.
What makes you excited about becoming a Boss Mom of the Week?
I am excited about the opportunity to give hope to the women who have big dreams yet feel blocked in some way due to trauma that has them reliving an entirely different belief system than so many who talk about manifestation with a “high vibes” only rhetoric that missed the mark for those who have never been told that more is available to them than they knew in earlier year. I see manifestation as a healing journey, stripping away the conditioning that we learned in order to be safe and feel loved and accepted, and in order to manifest, we need to move through all the gunk to uncover our true selves. I want any women who has felt stuck and wondered if there was something “wrong” with her to know that that isn’t the case.
One piece of advice for moms who are starting a business
Do your own work. So many of us are doing life changing work, and yet when we’re trying to figure out the business part we begin to let our own self care practices go because we think it’s necessary to hustle until we “get there” and then we can settle down and do our work again. If you’re a mom, building a business to help other moms live a better life in some way, make sure that you’re making time to take care of you too.
Where do you go for inspiration?
I’ve filled my whole world with incredible people who I admire AND who also believe in me… from Dana, helping women pursue their dreams in a way that doesn’t burn them out, to all the other women who have become by best friends, in business and in life, to my therapist, who has helped me navigate some very challenging years. Keeping people who get me and support me is a non-negotiable so I am never without someone that I can go to for inspiration.
What are you currently reading or listening to (podcasts, books, blogs etc)?
Currently I’m reading Existentially Kink by Carolyn Elliot to learn more about shadow work and I am listening to The Radical Mother Village Podcast and The Vision Driven Mom Podcast to help me navigate my challenges and values in motherhood.
I want to live in a world where…
women feel safe & respected for honoring their truths without feeling as though they need to justify or explain themselves… unless they want to
This is what I know to be true…
as long as women feel as though they have to have a “valid” reason to feel how they feel & to want what they want, they will get themselves stuck in logistics & details, & will remain stuck when it comes to allowing what they want to come into their lives
One thing you can’t live without…
The amazing women I have been blessed to fill my life with. Being in online communities with like-minded women building businesses that are changing the world has enriched my life so much and I am honored to be surrounded with incredible humans.
What is the big milestone that you are hitting that you are celebrating?
I am celebrating breaking through my biggest block ever (not trusting myself and waiting for perfection) to sticking with my plan long enough to put my full simple funnel (learned from the Nurture to Convert Society) together and start sharing my message. I know I’m not the only one who got stuck waiting for perfection, and I am proud of making it through that major hurdle.
