What’s up? My name is Nicole and I love to teach solo business owners how to take the “ech!” out of tech and stop running on the online business hamster wheel of doom so they can work less and create more.
- Maybe you’re fairly tech savvy, but get distracted by every shiny new object.
- Perhaps the thought of tinkering with your website makes you twitch.
- Maybe you’ve finally invested in tools for your business and you don’t know where to start.
If you feel beaten down by the “shoulds” and “musts” in the online business world and just want to learn to do things your way, I want to help.
With my background in business, blogging, and graphic design and a nerdtastic love of all things tech, I know I can be the Pedro to your Napoleon Dynamite.
She did a fantastic, thorough job – and worked very quickly.
“Nicole is easy to talk to and highly knowledgeable.
She takes care of technical, daunting, and confusing tasks while explaining exactly what’s she’s doing in layman’s terms. She even created a couple of quick YouTube tutorials just for me.
If you want to work with someone who already “gets it,” doesn’t waste time, and doesn’t need to have you explain every little detail, work with Nicole.”
“Nicole has helped me so much in my business. She is so tech savvy and pretty much is talented enough to run the entire internet!”
I look forward to working with her again.
“Nicole knocked my socks off. Not only did she get exactly what I wanted, but she did it so quickly too!”
MY MOST IMPORTANT VALUES
I will never know everything. I will consistently learn new things and grow from my new knowledge.
My approach to life and business will be laid back. I will always seek the humor in every situation.
I commit to recognizing where people are on their unique journeys and I will never forget where I started.
I will always share my unique perspective, create new things, and strive to walk a different path.
I will consistently strive to push myself further and approach life and business head on and head up.
HOW I ENDED UP HERE
I went to college, got a job with a 401k, bought a house, and played it safe.
For all intents and purposes, I was what everyone around me considered successful.
Eventually, my commute, working on projects that didn’t light me up, and being employed by companies that didn’t appreciate my work caught up with me.
Everyone was happy with my life except me.
As I sat staring at menial spreadsheets within the grey walls of my cubicle, scary thoughts that I had no idea how to even begin to entertain kept popping into my head.
“There has to be more to life than this.”
When I thought about living my life that way until retirement, something inside me screamed NO.
I made the scariest decision of my life and hatched an escape plan.
In June of 2015, I left my corporate job and began freelancing on a part-time basis. I identified 7 things I needed from my next gig:
- Do what I’m best at
- Work with who I want
- Do work that’s meaningful
- Meet cool people
- Feel valued and appreciated
- Pay off debt and live where I want
- Learn new stuff every day
In June of 2016, I started Peery Creative with one goal: to help solopreneurs create more, share more, say more, and make more.
Because no one should let a silly thing like technology stop them from shaking the world.
GEE WHIZ INFO
- I have a very odd sense of humor that often gets me into trouble. When the fecal matter hits the oscillating device, you can laugh or you can cry. I choose to laugh.
- I’m a craft beer drinker. Coors Light just won’t do. It tastes like water!
- I went to art school, but abandoned my talents for years because people told me it was a waste of time. I realized that those people are assholes and now I paint, knit, crochet, and take photos all the time.
- I love nature and outdoor activities. Fishing, hiking, and bird watching are where its at.
- I like being an adult a hell of a lot more than I liked being a kid. Probably because I’m still basically a kid. Only now I have money and alcohol.
- I grew up in the Midwest portion of the U.S., but recently fell in love with the Southwest. I am working toward moving to Arizona. Because I’m tired of shoveling snow. Also because of the bomb ass Mexican food.
