YOU ARE PHENOMENAL.
If you weren’t phenomenal you wouldn’t be trying to do BIG, AUDACIOUS things. You’d be chit-chatting in a facebook group or numbing out in a Netflix marathon (not judging, I find those therapeutic sometimes, too)... but you’re not. You’re here.
Whether you found your way here by chance or came here intentionally looking for support to skyrocket your business (heyyy!) - either way, I’m glad.
Because now that we’re connected, things are going to change. Let’s start with this gentle little reminder, shall we:
Nobody does what you do the way that you do it better than you. Nobody.
You have products and services that provide real value to people. You help them, you make them happy, you make their lives better.
But that’s not enough to create an empire.
If it was, you’d be well on your way to making the massive impact you’re craving. You’d be worrying less and banking more.
Truth is… there are some things you just can’t do alone.
And that’s where I come in.
It’s my mission to help you see what you can not see for yourself - like what makes you and what you do unique and special to your customers, and the ideas, the opportunities, the strategies, the meaning, the story, the message.
It’s my job to help you package it and offer it to the people who want and need it most, presented with a message that calls to them and excites action, a message that excites you too, to put yourself out there and take bold action.
Hi, I’m Nikki!
If we haven’t met before, let me tell you a little bit about me.
I help my clients to stand out, share their story and connect with their customers online via their websites, videos, sales pages, and in-person at industry events, pop-ups and dare I say it… sales meetings.
We develop strategies that lead to new perspectives, fresh opportunities and increased conversions - as in, more customers + more sales + more profit.
After working with me, my clients have successfully launched after thinking about their dream business for way too long, pivoted their business model to scale and expand, and set meaningful goals and hit them.
For 10+ years I ran a successful e-commerce business called Healthy Gourmet Gifts. Shortly after I launched I recognized my blind spots and hired coaches and experts to show me the way.
As I grew my online business, I helped my fellow entrepreneurs (suppliers and clients!) to grow theirs, and it snowballed. I took on my first few coaching clients 8+ years ago and 3 years ago I opened the doors to helping others and they told two friends etc etc and here we are today.
My background is a fortunate blend of art and commerce and I use every skill to your advantage, including those gained working for ten years in the storytelling biz of film and television post-production, and my well-honed intuitive skills and NLP training.
I’ve been self-employed my entire adult life and have earned my stripes the hard way through trial, error and by constantly investing in my skills with world class teachers, coaches and experts.
Everything I’ve done has brought me to here and now. I’m here to help you slay the second-guessing, reach higher and set meaningful goals worthy of your time, effort and sacrifice, to see sales as an act of service and to do work you’re proud of.
One thing I know for sure, no one can appreciate the unique challenges that come with launching, running and growing a small business quite like someone who’s done it too.
So if you’re ready to take the leap and grow a business you love in a way that feels good and gets you to your goals in months not years, let’s talk.

Or just looking for something more to read because you're actually (halle-freakin'-lujah!) taking a break?
Or, maybe you're sitting quietly at your desk and as long as you're looking at your screen there's a chance no one will bother you, hmmm?
Ok, here's 10 random facts about me.
I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa and have a crazy mixed heritage of Italian, Dutch, British, German, African and recently I discovered I’m also part Irish from Kilkenny which explains a lot.
My favourite thing to do when travelling is shopping at local markets and meeting small vendors. I have deep respect for anyone willing to create their own income.
My first full-time job at 18 was answering the phones at a disc jockey company. The phone hardly rang until I found a yellow pages and started calling companies like McDonalds and London Life. I booked those gigs, and dj’d for a while, too, wearing a pink tuxedo.
I make a serious pot of curry.
I produced and directed a play based on Jack and the Beanstalk. Our pre-sales were amazing, we expanded the seating and sold out and the concession treats and pre-show games were a hit. The doormen had to turn people away. I was 8.
I can’t ride a bike.
When a tagline comes together magically, or product shots are beautiful beyond expectations, or an idea for an offer comes to life, I get goosebumps all over, even on my face. It’s my sign, that’s when I know it’s right.
I met Bishop Desmond Tutu who asked me what I did for a living. That was the moment I knew I had to discover my true purpose, and this is it.
I giggle when I hear club tunes from the mid to late eighties. Memories of after-hours clubs and shenanigans in Toronto, lol!
Whiskey, Jamieson’s Irish Whiskey to be exact, that’s my tipple of choice. Apparently, the Kilkenny blood runs deep!
What does Stick8 mean?
Steek uit, pronounced Stick8, is a South African slang term, I'm an expat. When you want your friends to pop in for a drink, you'll say, "steek uit!", when you want your sister to wear her best to stand out, "steek uit!" and if you want to challenge someone to do something scary, "steek uit!".
Stick8 is your invitation to show up and go for your dreams, to stand out in a noisy marketplace, and to step forward bravely.
