Nicci Take has a pretty interesting perspective on business life.
She spent 45 years as a man running a business and raising her kids – happily revealing that her role as a father has been the most important job in her life – before embracing her true authentic self as a woman. ⚧️
There is so much to unpack in Nicci’s story that this episode will make you laugh, make you think, and give you a truckload of tips on everything from parenting to sales. Because Nicci is both a highly sought-after sales/deals coach and a stand-up comedian, as well as a super successful CEO and entrepreneur (you’d wish you’d had her as your boss, for sure).
Here’s why you need to tune in
Hear how Nicci changed the culture of her business with feminine thinking and why this is the key to successful sales. Learn how you can negotiate with a teenager to tidy their room (yep, it IS possible 🤣), and why TEDSPIE will be the most useful management/coaching technique you’ve heard in ages.
