About Nicola

Life & Business Coach

I live and breathe the art and science of business. I like facts, figures, plans and strategies, but I also like to have fun. And I know you can have it both ways in business. 

Nicola Burt-Skinner- My Story

Some of you may know me as the owner of NBS Admin Assist, The Wellness Academy, FitBiz PA or DarloBiz, and whilst I have grown and loved every one of those organisations, following a grief sabbatical in 2016/7, I realised that what I actually loved most was the growing of those businesses through marketing.

Marketing and business growth is my first love. It was an integral part of my degree and something I have never stopped learning about. I simply love it.

My core values: simplicity, honesty, integrity

I aim to help small business owners understand:

  • their ideal customer
  • their customer cycle
  • the different marketing methods
  • how to market their business in low cost ways

Mixing this with my coaching skills and am able to offer a coach/consultant hybrid service. I combine clarity, accountability and support with the more technical aspects of business, such as: sales, marketing, lead generation etc.

“Nicola is thorough and concise and instills confidence in your own ability to achieve”
