Key takeaways:

  • Nicolette started her career by selling diamonds at Brilliant Earth. She also has a keen interest in fashion.
  • The first thing Nicolette does to level up is ensure her networking is consistent, or better yet, finding a mentor. Finding a strong support system is of utmost important to Nicolette. She goes onto how networking is about relationship building and bringing value to the people around you.
  • She talks about selecting mentors and how she used 10 touchpoints to connect with her mentor on his content before they started speaking. Nicolette has also wished to bring more of her authentic self to work, which she is constantly working on.
  • Nicolette takes care of her mind by going to therapy (coaching) every week. It helps her be better and present. It’s about bettering yourself but not beating yourself up as well. Keeping a sound mind is so key. 
  • Journaling along with therapy is how Nicolette gets in touch with her mind and self. 
  • Nicolette moved back to Colorado 1.5 years ago to help open the Snowflake office and loves the accessibility to nature. Physical health is not only working out, but actually being outside, moving in the fresh air. She also skis, hikes and rides Peleton. 
  • The best piece of advice Nicolette has ever received: “If you’re able to do one thing that advances you (a deal, a conversation, etc.), think of that as a win. Some things may not happen overnight and it’s important to remember that.”
