Nicole Boehrig is a mom boss! She runs a successful network marketing business as a Plexus Ambassador.

I “met” Nicole on Facebook in a mom group. Say what you will about social media, but it can be a fantastic place to meet like-minded women.

What I really admire about Nicole is her Girl Power attitude. She is so supportive of other women and you can sense her sincerity. Nicole has such a cool story!

What made you decide to start your business?

We were living overseas as missionaries, so our budget could be tight at times. I had studied gut health for several years and did loads of gut-helping things, yet still battled with some aspects of health.

When pregnant with my first, I started taking 2 gut-health products my sister recommended. Within 3 days my constipation lifted. Hello!

From there I fell in love with feeling GOOD from the inside out. It seemed a no-brainer to educate people about gut health and grow a business of coaching others to do the same.

Educating others, helping friends, and passionately serving have always been passions of mine!

The best part is I got to grow my business from our grass-roofed hut in Africa, which helped transition my family financially to one of our next dreams.

How do you juggle it all?

Jesus, my Pink Drink, and lots of tea!

Why is tea just a trigger for my bones to relax?

But seriously, it’s about trade-offs. You won’t be able to work from home and do everything. BUT you will succeed when you prioritize and those priorities take precedence.

Wednesday’s are date nights with my husband. No excuses. Sunday afternoons I plan for our weeks. I schedule my work times and communicate with my family. And quit watching TV!

But quiet time with the Lord and balanced hormones and moods help a LOT!

How did you meet your husband?

A rock climbing gym in college.

What is the funniest thing that happened to you recently?

I walked outside of our new rental to check the mail and stopped short.

I looked up the street…down the street. Walked up the street… walked down the street and concluded that our house was the only one on the street without a mail box!

Whaaat?

I felt crazy for texting the landlord, so I had my husband check when he came home. Yup. No mail box?! It reminded me a little too much of the dysfunction we often ran into when living overseas! Oh boy! 

What is that one song that always makes you happy? What’s your jam?

“Girl on Fire”… because my daughter of 3 years belts it so well! 

If they made a movie of your life, who would play you?

Julia Roberts!! Please let her play me!

Here’s a totally unfair question…If you had to choose between wine or coffee for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

Hmmm…decaf coffee? I don’t love wine or too much caffeine. So, decaf coffee for life!

When I became a mom, I wish someone would have told me….

That I would feel torn between intense production with my work and being with my babies at home.
I love being at home, but I realized it’s outside my comfort zone to slow down and play sometimes.
It pushes me. I get bored and I want to reach for my phone to check notifications.
I want my toddlers to do whatwant to do!
So,I wish someone might have told me that’s okay. And I would feel shame for not wanting to play with my kids every day. That it’s not a big deal. And just keep trying. And to have grace for myself because my kids sure do!

I want my daughter to know…

Her worth doesn’t come from the work that she does. It doesn’t come from perky boobs or how well she does makeup. Or how cute her face is… or how funny she is.

Her worth comes from her identity in Christ.
That’s she’s incredibly clever and smart, funny and cute.
And when she seeks her identity in God, and builds a romance of dance and give and learn, of love and acceptance with the Creator, much light and love will flow from her life. And that’s the type of legacy worth working for.

The last book I read was…

Go Pro by Eric Worre – it was UBER helpful! But reading about the Enneagram next!

Three things I can’t live without:

  • Sleep
  • laughter
  • sunshine

Describe your perfect day.

Today was as near perfect as it gets. It’s normal and my husband worked, but I love the rhythm of our week. Slept til 5:45… snuck away from the baby in bed. Prayed. Did quiet reading of my Bible on my phone. My kids snuggled me when they woke up and Face-timed my folks while I cooked eggs.

We ate quickly and threw on swimming suits. Drove to the YMCA and made fun memories with those 2 toddlers screaming and crashing around the water.

We ate snacks and blow-dried our hair then bought groceries as Aldi – I love that it makes it in my perfect day because that place is balm for my overseas-living soul! The kids napped. Hallelujah!!! That’s all you need for a good day, right?!

While they napped, I assembled my desk (we just moved) and I worked.

When my husband came home, we finished eating and headed straight out to the sunshine.
I love the ins and outs of our day. A day with two happy kids and a momma who’s thankful is a good day, right?

If you could give 18 year old Nicole one piece of advice, what would it be?

There will come a day when living your dream will be the hardest thing you’ve ever done; where the dream will be worth it, but you will be surprised by how HARD it is.

That doesn’t mean you quit. Just lean into it.

Accept the hard. Reflect. Learn. Know yourself, relieve stress however is healthy for you. And FEED yourself.

Feed the dream. Surround yourself with positive, inspiring folks. The dream will be worth it.

What advice do you have for moms who want to start their own business?

Be prepared to grow because your business will only grow as much as YOU do.

You’re the ceiling. Open yourself up. Read. Listen to podcasts. Study. Don’t expect a lottery ticket. Dig for gold in your backyard because it’s there. Inside of you.

You may need to tear out that head trash or lies you’ve told yourself.

Ditch toxic habits, but you wanted to do that anyway, didn’t you?

Go to counseling. Deal with your ish. Look it bravely in the face. And say, “Yup. I’m doing this. It won’t be easy, but it’ll be worth it.”

Then please come talk to me because you’re awesome, and I want to know you!

Healthy Finds: Program Review + FREE Gift Card!

 

If you know me well, then you know I LOVE health and wellness. Since becoming a mom, I have been researching products and foods that are good for my family. I mean, actually good. Many companies give us the impression that something is healthy, when it reality it is not. That’s not what you get with Healthy Finds!

Healthy Finds is a program that is dedicated to finding healthy products. What really stands out to me is their desire to also inform consumers about what they are really putting in their bodies. In the words of the company, “It’s time to take back your health”.

I couldn’t agree more. Some many companies confuse us (consumers) about what is truly healthy and beneficial. Healthy Finds, led by Dr. Andrew Campbell, puts in the leg work.

Healthy - Finds

What do I think?

I love that they find products for everyone, including your little ones. It’s so difficult when we are bombarded by companies who tell us that they are healthy or organic when often they are only putting some “healthy stuff” in and marketing it as the best choice. It’s pretty frightening the things that are in our “good for you” products.

I like how you can earn cash back in the form of gift cards from many of the places you are probably already shopping (I’m talking to you Amazon and Target fans, I see you) when you purchase products from the brands that Healthy Finds is already working with. You just send them the receipts here.

I do worry that you could end up spending more than you normally would as some brands have a minimum purchase price to redeem certain gift cards; however the products that I have seen are pretty incredible, so it could totally be worth it. (My wish list is pretty long at this point lol)

If you are ready to get started, sign up here. They have an awesome introductory offer expiring soon! (P.S. I do NOT get a commission if you sign up.)
