Are you tired of feeling like if I don't have an achievement today, then I'm a failure?
Are you fed up with feeling like the only way to be successful is to put your nose to the grindstone and end every day burnt out?
Are you wanting to live a life full of achievement, success, and (dare I say it) FUN!?
Are you done living life by your stress inducing to-do list that never seems to end, no matter how much you accomplish?
Does this sound familiar...
You feel like if you're not productive 100% of the time, then you're lazy or not working hard enough.
You feel like you're chasing achievement after achievement, saying "when I achieve THIS, then I'll be happy" (but that happiness never lasts)
Anxiety, burnout and imposter syndrome are a regular part of your life.
You feel like if you didn't have an achievement today, then you failed and are falling behind.
You approach your to-do list with the attitude of "I need to get this all done NOW".
You are proud to identify as an overachiever, even though you never feel like your achievements are "enough".
No, I haven't been reading your journal.
In fact, I've been where you are and, as cheesy as it sounds,
It doesn't have to be this way.
Accomplishing your goals is not about checking off a box...
Accomplishing your goals is about becoming the type of person you want to be!
And that's a lot easier and faster to accomplish when you have someone calling out your self-sabotaging patterns, curating exercises and strategies for you and your unique goals, plus being your accountability buddy every step of the way.
I'm Nicole Baker!
A Coach for high achieving perfectionists helping you drop the "need to achieve" and start enjoying the life you're working so hard for!
I used to wear my “perfection” as a badge of honor.
It was the reason I was always an overachiever.
It was the reason I was always the hardest worker and got amazing grades.
It was the reason I was always happy and would bend over backwards to make sure people around me were taken care of.
I fed off the praise from others like a power bar and continued to listen to the voice in my head that believed if I wasn't achieving more and more, then I was a failure.
I held myself to incredibly unreasonable standards, which led to constantly asking myself, “am I really good enough?”
Finally, I’d had it. I was done living life like I was on fire. I realized that I was enough here and not, not only when I had a big success. I had a huge, imperfect voice inside me and I was ready for it to be unleashed.
Having grown up embedded in the personal development industry (thank you mom and dad), I developed a massive curiosity for human patterns; specifically why people develop perfectionistic tendencies?
How do we break this habit?
What motivates us to get out of our comfort zone?
How do we successfully achieve a goal every single time, no matter how big the dream?
How do we find fulfillment DAILY, rather than in quick bursts when we cross a finish line?
The questions go on and on.
Through that curiosity, I dove into research and began implementing what I’d learned through books, speakers and seminars to my own life.
The results SHOCKED me!
In less than a year, I leapt out of my comfort zone, took massive, imperfect action leading to:
Building a successful business from scratch and have now gone full-time
Falling in love with an incredible partner and together we are planning our wedding
Embracing my health from a place of energy - rather than needing to be skinny so others would notice me
Running half marathons
Quitting my restaurant job after 14 years in the industry
...And so much more.
So I applied these same tools with my clients and their results were equally as astounding:
Going from unemployed to 6 figures
Losing over 100 pounds
Being featured in top publications
Landing the biggest and most lucrative opportunity in their career
Moving to their dream state - a move way out of their comfort zone
Getting healthy for the first time, feeling energized and confident in the skin they're in
Starting and going full time in their dream business
Hitting record-breaking monthly revenue (35k woohoo!)
Finishing the first draft of their book after sitting on the idea for years
Setting boundaries leading to more joy and free time
Plus SO much more...
Which brings me to you.
I’ve made it my mission to help you out of your comfort zone, embrace that you are enough (just as you are), and achieve goals from a place of fun, fulfillment and ease.
When I started with Nicole, I was working at a retail job that I hated and pursuing my passion as a side hustle. After 3 months of coaching, Nicole helped me strategize and scale my side hustle into a full-blown business, allowing me to quit my old job, become my own boss, and step into full-time entrepreneurship. As a people pleaser, she supported me in setting boundaries, taking care of myself, resting, and balancing work/life and my business (and I) thrived because of it
"When I first started working with Nicole, I was in a place where I couldn’t find satisfaction and fulfillment in my day-to-day life because my expectations for perfection were simply set way too high. I made it impossible for myself to be happy. Nicole is the first person who has ever been able to help me rationalize my high expectations and reframe them so that I can live a more relaxed life. The miraculous thing is that she did this without putting any limitations or dampening on my drive and highly aspirational mentality."
I was in a creative rut, unsure of how to take my career to the next level. I felt like I was one of countless people trying to do the same thing. Now, instead of waiting for others to give me opportunities, I've created my own by starting my own podcast consulting business. In coaching, I learned that the value of a journey is in the little steps forward. Nicole challenged me in the ways I needed to be challenged, in order to reach my goals. She expanded my idea of what was possible for me. I can't recommend her enough!!!
Let me tell you...
You can read all the books, listen to all the free podcasts, or continue to say "I can do it on my own" (yes, I see you, overachievers) but having a Coach who designs every call, every exercise, every homework assignment to your needs; that is when you start to see real results.
It all starts here with your daily mindset. Many people (perhaps you?) have let their mindset fall to autopilot, which is why you might feel frantic, stressed and why you’ve sprinted towards your goals.
Together we will begin focusing on your daily habits that will help you feel back in control of your life and raise your daily motivation.
Your beliefs aka the big kahuna. If you’re not happy with your life, it’s because this bit is screwing you over.
Many perfectionists have beliefs like "if I'm not productive, no one will love me", "I'm a failure and never do anything right", "outside validation = I am enough... for now" and many more.
Through a series of exercises we will identify your negative beliefs and condition new, personalized, empowering beliefs so that you have the confidence and inner power to go after your goals.
P.s. This is the game changer for my clients and is always their most powerful takeaway.
Strategy is key for going after your goals, yes, and I am fortunate to have learned from some of the best goal setting strategists in the world. But if we just jump to this step without addressing the first two pillars (which is what many impatient perfectionists like to do), you'll be back where you started before you can say "self-sabotage".
BUT with the two previous steps unlocked and ready to roll, we can take the strategy I will teach you and you'll be amazed by what you accomplish!
Together we work through a series of goal setting exercises, getting clear on what personalized strategy you need to tackle your goals and feel freaking fantastic along the way.
When I first started working with Nicole, I was unemployed for over a year after being laid off, trying to decide if I should move to a different city, not spending much time on anything creative, and wondering where to go next. Now, I'm employed and working a very chill 100% remote job that allows me to use more energy on creative projects and travel. My relationships have improved, my confidence has increased, and I feel so much more at lease. I'm actually excited about the future now, instead of just fearing it!
I first came to Nicole with a never ending to-do list, hoping that she could help me accomplish everything I had laid out. But Nicole gave me so much more than that! She helped me totally shift my perspective about what fulfillment and success look like, and has helped me find more balance and joy in my life. She has helped me calm the perfectionist and quiet the inner critic. I've grown so much as a person in just a short while working with her! Oh, and in case you were wondering, by doing this I have finally been able to tackle tasks I had been putting off for months!
When Nicole and I started working together, I was in a place of urgency with my goals. Yet, deep down I knew that to grow into the vision I saw for myself & my business- I would need to embrace risk-taking, courage & uncertainty, but these traits were not how I defined myself. Nicole saw that these traits DID belong to my identity & helped me to see them in myself! Coaching is the cure for making the big picture changes you can envision for your business and coaching with Nicole will teach you to shift your mindset from a place of scarcity & urgency to abundance & consistency!

When I first started with Nicole, I was lost. I was so deep in a facade that I was happy but knew deep down I wanted so much more with my life. I was insecure, I didn’t love myself. I was miserable. Now after coaching with Nicole, I’m a successful businesswoman, I’m in the best shape of my life psychically and mentally, in the best relationship I could ever dream of and so beyond happy. I genuinely love myself and am living the life of my dreams.
Before working with Nicole, I felt lost, out of control and trapped in myself. Now I feel in control, renewed, and legit powerful in my body all the time! From the moment I started coaching with Nicole I felt an overwhelming sense of relief. She is a true mentor that I have never had in my life and I feel so lucky to have her.
