Hello and thanks so much for taking time to visit my website.Â My name is Nicole Denison AKA Ms. Incredible! Thatâ€™s my business name, and itâ€™s what I like to be for my clients. I love the feeling I get when I help a new business hit the ground running if they are just getting started or help an overwhelmed business owner streamline their operations and free their time, so they can feel good about their business again. I feel very lucky to be a witness to their growth and evolution. My work is important to their success, and their success is my happiness.
I love talking and working with people and am well versed in internet marketing, sales, and customer service. I enjoy helping small businesses cut through the fluff and information overload and come up with a marketing plan thatâ€™s genuine and targeted and serves them well, so they can take their business to the next level.
How did I get into this business? I was working in a support role in a corporate job and was ready for a change. I was looking for a way I could do what I love in a manner that served me and my family and allowed me to realize my full potential. I wanted to do more. I found AssistU online, and the idea of providing support to small business owners in a virtual capacity hit me like a lightening bolt. The seed was planted. A few months later, I was let go from my job, and it gave me the opportunity I needed to make it happen. I immediately signed up for AssistUâ€™s training program and became a Certified Virtual Assistant. I never looked back. I started picking up clients, and my practice was full 6 months later.
I love to learn and grow and am always looking for ways to develop myself personally and professionally. I have taken tons of certification courses and webinars over the years. A couple of the most recent ones include Social Media Measurement and Image Marketing for 2014. Last September, I had the opportunity to go to Los Angeles to attend the Todayâ€™s Innovative Women in Business Success Summit, and I brought back tons of marketing and sales goodies. I also had the honor of winning the 2013 Innovative Woman in Business Award.
What did I do before I was Ms. Incredible!? I have 15 years of administrative,Â marketing, and human resource experience. I graduated from Fox Business College in 1998 and went to work as a sales rep for a corrugated container company. I soon needed to “spread my wings” and do what I was called to do. So I went to work as an executive assistant for a small cap hedge fund owner. I was the first employee and left right after we had hired our eighteenth team member. I learned to not only be an amazing executive assistant but also how to run a business. I worked directly with the owner and handled HR, Marketing, Operations. My job was to protect the ownerâ€™s time because he needed to focus on what he did best to keep his business running, and I took care of the rest. I decided I needed a change and went to work for a recycling company for three years, first as the Director of Office Operations, then as a Sales and Marketing Coordinator. During my career, I went to school part time and graduated with my B.A. in business administration. Those roles helped me become who I am today hold a special place in my heart.
When Iâ€™m not busy trying to be incredible forÂ my clients, Iâ€™m off trying to be a super mom to my two children Destiny and John Patrick and our dog Bo. I love reading all kinds of stuff, but my favorite books are self-help and Â spiritual books. Being a Taurus, a lovely afternoon might consist of me laying under a tree reading a book and enjoying wine and cheese. I also enjoy journaling, cooking, swimming, walking, hanging out in nature, traveling, finding new adventures, doing anything with my kids, and throwing great theme parties. I also advocate for causes involving the health and welfare of children, better public education, and bipolar disorder and autism awareness.
I believe that peace of mind is key to growth in business, and leading a balanced life is key to achieving peace of mind. My mission is to help my clients achieve balance and success by tackling their administrative and marketing work and freeing them to do what they love and do best.
