Today I’m chatting with Nichole Guerrette, college professor, accountant and mother of two. Nicole is the owner of Stafford Consulting, an accounting services firm, as well as an energy and fitness company, N-er-G Fitness. Today we’re talking about how Nicole maintains balance between her life and running these two businesses. Nichole and I also discuss how mindset plays into the journey to entrepreneurship, and how we need to approach establishing the right mindset as we start a business, and throughout the years of building and growing that business. If you are just starting your journey as an entrepreneur, or if you struggle with your mindset in your business, I encourage you to tune in to my conversation with Nichole.

nichole’s advice for entrepreneurs:
It’s your story, you can write it however you want. When you shift your mindset from the world being stacked against you because of your circumstances, to an idea that you are not limited by your past, you can own your story, and allow it to free you to understand that you can do whatever you want to do. If you are allowing your story to shape you, you will never go after what you want. But when you write your own story, you can do anything.
