Mom Boss: Nicole Boehrig
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!

I would like to introduce you to Nicole Boehrig
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!
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?
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….
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.
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:
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.
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!
