My name is Nicki and I am a Network Marketing + Online Business Strategist. I created this space for one single purpose. Everything I do here is for YOU. I am not here to impress you with my life. I am here to impact yours.
Nicki Not Nicole is for all those who are looking to 10X their life and their business. It is an incubator for all of your ideas, dreams, and ambitions that are just waiting to be discovered and put into motion.
You have found yourself here because you are looking for something MORE. More time. More money. More success. More FREEDOM! Freedom to freely spend your time. Freedom from the bondage of debt. Freedom to give to yourself and others. Freedom to do the things you truly enjoy doing. Freedom to let your creativity flow. Freedom to pursue your dreams. Freedom to let your voice be heard. Freedom to do what you love, how and when you want to do it, from wherever you are in the world!
I want you to think of this place as your own personal springboard for success in finding your way to that freedom.
So, what’s all this “Step-Upline Files” stuff about? Well…step-upline is a little term I’ve come up with to describe my role here at Nicki Not Nicole. Very simply put, I am here to support, guide, and mentor the Network Marketer, The MLM’er, and The Direct Sales Person in their quest for success.
HOWEVER – If you are here and are not a network marketer, do not fret! The information, education and mentorship I offer is for you too, I promise. What I teach covers a multitude of areas dealing with online sales and marketing, and can be applied to practically ANY business model. So sit tight and get ready for tons of valuee ;)
Okay, let’s not beat around the bush. There is an ugly black cloud hovering over the Network Marketing industry, and not just hovering but raining, pouring, and tropical hurricane storming all over it. I know it. You know it. Your friends know it. Your family knows it. EVERYONE knows it. The stigma that has become attached to being involved in MLM is so very disheartening, especially when knowing the overwhelming amount of good that this industry has brought into the lives of countless people, and the problem that lies at the center of all those negative beliefs is the way many people choose to approach their business – not the business itself.
Most of the time these people don’t even realize that what they’re doing is actually turning people off and creating critics for life. They’re not trying to make it harder for the ones who run their businesses correctly, effectively, and in a dignified manner, but that’s essentially what is happening. The saddest part about it all is that they’re just doing what they’ve been told to do – what’s been being done day after day for generations. But the thing is, those ways just aren’t working anymore. Period. Times have changed very drastically and very quickly, and not enough people are being properly educated or informed about it.
I want to help change all that.
I am here to awaken you to a new way of doing things, to challenge everything you’ve been told or thought you knew about sales and marketing, to disrupt the Network Marketing Industry the way we know it. You’re going to get a lot of tough love here, and you may not like or agree with what I have to say at times. But I guarantee that if you listen to what I share with you and apply the things that you learn on a daily basis, you will see massive results in your business.
Before we get into the who, what, when, where, and how of it, first let me tell you a tiny bit of my story.
I discovered this industry in 2014, purely out of desperation, and I can proudly say that I have never looked back. At the time I was a very new mom and had just finished up my first week back at a “real job”. Let me tell you…I hated every single second of it and the thought of going back filled me with dread.
I decided right then and there that I wasn’t going to go back. EVER. I wanted to be the one raising my daughter. I wanted to be the one to teach her how to crawl and sit and talk and walk. I wanted to be the one witnessing every moment of her precious childhood. Not someone else.
I didn’t know how I was going to do it, but I did know that I was going to find a way. No matter what. To make a long story short, in the midst of my online research I was recruited into a network marketing opportunity. I was brought in with the $99 my boyfriend gave me to get started and VERY high expectations. Little did I know that this world I had just entered was much more complicated than it had looked from the outside. I was in way over my head.
I found out very quickly that I knew absolutely nothing and was completely overwhelmed by it all. Talk about a learning curve! So in an attempt to better understand how I should navigate my new business, I got back on the internet and started hunting down answers. That’s when I stumbled across an amazing company that completely changed my life.
I learned that I was doing everything wrong. But it really wasn’t my fault. I was just doing what my team leader told me do. Which is what hers had told her to do, and hers had told her to do, and on and on it went. I began to see that these people had been operating a certain way for so long that they didn’t even realize that their tactics simply weren’t effective anymore – at least not the way they once were.
And these new strategies I was learning about? They were so exciting to me! They filled my mind with creativity and possibility and ignited a fire in my heart. It was like I was seeing the world for the first time, through an entirely different set of eyes. And right here is where I came to one of my greatest realizations yet.
All I really want to do is share what I know with the world! I want to help women who are just like me and show others that there IS a better way to achieve the kind of success that dramatically changes lives.
I am here to give you something that was not offered to me when I started out on my entrepreneurial journey. Everything you need to get your Network Marketing business off the ground faster, running smoother, and growing exponentially – these are the things that I want to share with you.
There are so many of us out there, orphans of sorts. We have been brought into an opportunity full of hope and ambition, only to be let down, misinformed, or even pushed aside by our uplines. For me, this has truly been a blessing because buried within that setback was where I found my calling. A potential road to failure forced me to look for another way, and find it I did.
I lost a lot of time when I got into my business and I want to make sure that you don’t do the same. My hope is that you will allow me to step in as your step-upline and mentor, to help you develop the right mindset, find and know your vision, sell more products and services, recruit more reps, step into your leadership, and ultimately become a top producer in whatever business you are in!
My heart is in this for YOU. For all of the talented, driven, badass #girlboss’s who make up the MLM community! I believe in you, in your dreams and your vision, as much as I believe in my own, and I promise to show up for you. I promise to take the time, be genuine, engage authentically, encourage and inspire, educate and inform, pay attention to detail, and put my heart and soul into helping you to succeed.
Here is a little preview of what I’ll be bringing to you on a daily basis:
✘ I will use my own knowledge and experience, as well as the expertise of top leaders and influencers, to provide you with valuable solutions to all of the obstacles you will face within your business. Because it’s not a matter of if, only a matter of when.
✘ I will show you the exact steps – proven tips, tricks, techniques and strategies – that will help explode your business and allow you to start living the lifestyle you have always dreamed of having.
✘ From online marketing, branding, and blogging to mindset training, recruiting, and sales – I will reveal to you the exact tools and resources needed to leverage the power of the internet and make your existing or envisioned home business a wild success.
Oh! And one more tidbit. Aside from the whole “Network Marketing + Online Business Strategist” hoopla, I am also just a girl…with an EXTREMELY wide range of interests. Like… I love to discover new things and am endlessly hunting for inspiration. I am a bookworm and a lover of words – I will be a forever student. I will encourage natural health, wellness, and beauty until the day that I die. I am a born and bred treasure hunter and bargain shopping queen. I thoroughly enjoy many facets of fashion, I mean…what girl doesn’t? And I love love love to travel and experience other cultures. All that being said, these topics may creep into the mix from time to time and I hope that you will enjoy these little pieces of me as well!
