Work-Life Harmony: Pivoting During COVID & Coming Out Stronger With Nicola Watson

Ep: 88

What’s the biggest change you’ve faced since the start of this COVID pandemic? Whatever it was, did you let it stop your progress? Or did you find a way to move past it and continue to succeed?

Nicola Watson is a business owner, full-time mom, and a frequent guest of the show. She is back today to shed some light on the turns this year has taken for her, and how she has learned to deal with each one.

On this episode of The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake and Nicola sit down together to talk about how healthy shifts in time, schedule, and workload get made by working moms in quarantine, rising to the current challenge of “adapt or fail” as a business owner, and all the things Nicola has learned and gained over the course of her journey as an entrepreneur, plus her hopes and goals for the future.


What You’ll Learn:

  • How Nicola prioritizes her responsibilities to get everything done in the new world post-COVID (including her responsibility for her own self-care)
  • What students may gain from coaches who have talents and skill sets directly in opposition to their own
  • Why self-awareness has been the guiding light and the key to Nicola’s continued success, and how it manifests itself in her business and her personal life
  • And much more!


Favorite Quote:

“There is always a silver lining, you just have to sit there and find what it is. There’s always a reason for what you’re going through. And it’s your responsibility to figure out what the benefit is. Even from the perspective of our mother, a lot of us have to stay home and homeschool or, even if not to homeschool, you have to be online with your child. But yeah, you can think about what the benefits are. I’m now actively involved in what she’s learning, so I can help her to learn better… So, even though it’s not an ideal situation, it’s important to stay in a positive frame of mind and see what the silver lining is.” —Nicola Watson
