When did you arrive in Volusia County? What brought you here?
I was born and raised here! I love everything about it and am hoping to never leave. I'm part of the EOB CrossFit community as a CrossFit coach there and am their in-house nutrition coach. Not long after starting to get involved at the gym, I started my nutrition business, Nolin Nutrition.
What is new in your business?
I recently paused my business in early 2022 so that I could streamline my processes. Being a one-on-one business with a one-woman team means that I would like to give 100% of myself to my clients. I started it up again at the end of 2022 thanks to having proper software and Customer Relationship Management systems now up and running, which allow me to focus on what matters — my clients' goals and well-being.
What is the best business advice you have received, and how did it impact you?
I recently read Joanna Gaines' memoir, and she has some really amazing advice in there. My favorite quote from it was: “Letting go shows us what else our arms were made to carry.”
What have you learned about leadership from running your business, and what is your leadership style?
I’ve learned that I will continue to learn new things daily, whether that be from my clients, from the internet, or from others who run similar businesses as mine, so I need to be open-minded going into every day. Every client of mine is so different from each other, so I have a "go with the flow" approach and cater my leadership style to each person individually, based on what their needs are. That’s what makes me love this job so much more. We’re all different people just striving to do the best we can.
What have been the biggest obstacles to opening or running
your business? How have you overcome them?
The hardest thing for me to do was to accept that I had to put things on hold in 2022. I was growing too quickly to keep up with everything happening and needed more back-end organization and streamlining. I made the challenging decision to let my clients know that I had to put things on hold, and they were all so gracious, understanding and supportive. I was able to come back so much stronger once I created systems, CRM integration and certain software’s made for small business owners like myself.
