Let me guess...

I want you to know you’re not alone. I was here, too…for years.

So how did I finally get out of this cycle?

You know what your zone of genius is...but you're terrified to commit to doing it full time because you're not sure if it'll pay all your bills, and you don't want to end up working so hard that you start hating the thing you once loved

Be stuck sitting in a chair 8-12 hours a day trying to keep up with an ever-growing workload knowing you're charging far too little just to keep the business rolling because nobody knows who you are (yet)

Dread the morning commute to a 9-5 mostly soul-sucking job that you drains you...all the while daydreaming about how you wish could just actually get paid to do your zone of genius work for a living

Hey there!

I'm Nicole

  • I'm Nicole, a professional freelance musician turned marketing badass. I spent 13 years of my life wanting a fulfilling career as a freelance musician, but uh…they didn’t really teach me how to make that happen in school.

  • I got a Master's degree from a competitive music university. I played a ton of auditions and too many gigs and jobs to count. I taught lessons, and hell, I even got offered a record deal from NAXOS, the top classical music record label. I did all the stuff you're supposed to do as a freelancer (and then some, because I'm an overachiever #enneagram3probs).​ And while it looked super glamorous from the outside…I was still barely making ends meet.
    And maybe you’ve been here, too?


  • The thing is…college didn't teach me how to market myself and CREATE paid opportunities. And, spoiler alert, but just being good at your craft is not enough anymore. Oh, you're great at what you do? Get in line, my friend.

So a funny thing happened...

Through my own (former) 9-5’s, I worked side-by-side with people in the marketing big leagues…and I loved every minute of it. Learning the strategy, the trial-and-error, but especially seeing the massive results.

And after working with a few multi-million dollar companies (casual), I finally decided it was time for me to stop putting my own dreams on the backburner.

so I jumped!
