What’s my clients say

  • "Clear and thorough"

    Thanks so much Nicole Johnston. I wasn't sure what to expect but I knew I really needed to take action on my long awaited words! The format was clear and thorough. and I came away having achieved all the stated objectives. It's said that we all have a book inside us, so watch this space, and if you're thinking of putting pen to paper for your book - I can't recommend Nicole highly enough.

  • "Fantastic"

    Nicole has been an absolute pleasure to deal with both helping ghostwrite an article for me but also with her non-fiction online course, which has been fantastic to put more structure into something I've postponed for quite some time.
