Nicola's Story: Only a few years ago, in 1998, Nicola Cairncross was applying for £12-14k per year secretarial jobs but her life had a massive turnaround due to a well-timed mentor (the amazing Bennie Gray from the Space Organisation) and a book falling off a shelf in the Oxford St branch of Books Etc. That book was "Swimming With Pirahna Makes You Hungry" by Professor Colin Turner, who contacted Nicola 12 years later after reading her review and they are now working together on a webinar project where they are giving that book away to attendees - how life turns around! The next book she read was "7 Habits Of Highly Effective People" by Steven Covey. Phew! Is that one great book! She devoured it - and did all the exercises - before moving onto other greats such as "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki, "The E-Myth Revisited" by Michael Gerber and other life changing tomes. This was her real education you see, because although bright....... Nicola left school at 16 with only two skills: 1. the ability to read and a love of books 2. the ability to type 3. the ability to talk her way out of trouble OK, that's three. Proves you don't have to be able to add up (at least without a calculator which hadn't been invented when NC was at school) to found a leading wealth coaching & training company and become an "Expert In Residence" for Visa International and Pampers iVillage, eh? Nicola caused a sensation when she spoke at the Annual Conference of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and started her talk by telling them she only had Grade 3 CSE maths. But she captured their attention big time by pointing out that she had put a £1 coin on each of their chairs and asking them if they knew how to turn that £1 into a million pounds in just 18 years? None of them did know! So she showed them......And then went on to tell them her story...... From a standing start of financial clueless-ness, Nicola founded a six figure coaching company The Money Gym, has written two books, writes two regular blogs (books and blog available on Amazon Kindle), bought, renovated and sold a boutique hotel in Sussex (no money down and that one nearly buried her so don't try it at home children!!) Previously she founded Esoteric Records, dance label and publishing company, had an automated online music biz internet company, ArtistManager that matched up unsigned artists in the music industry with agents, managers and music biz resources, and nearly made a fortune while at college from selling New Romantic waistcoats made out of junk shop curtains to high fashion boutiques. If only she'd known about outsourcing! Still she can still "bag out" a waistcoat with the best of them (and so can her sisters!). But more importantly, she has always dropped off and picked her kids up from school, only does business with people she likes and has a LOAD of fun on a daily basis. WEALTH PROFILE
PRESS & TV Nicola has been featured in many newspapers and magazines, including Woman & Home (Jan 2007, Duncan Bannatyne's "The Sharp Edge" (Jan 2007), The Times, The Observer, The Mail On Sunday, The Mirror, The Scotsman, RED Magazine (many times), New Woman, Woman & Home (Aug 2006), Cosmopolitan (Feb 2007 and many other times), Elle, Marie Claire, Essentials, Top Sante, Radio 5 Live and CNN Breakfast News Worldwide. SPEAKING See her website for forthcoming events but Nicola speaks regularly at events such as The Millionaire Mind, The World Internet Summit (only British speaker to be asked twice!) and "Inspire Scotland" alongside Ecademy's own Penny Power among others, on topics such as Business Success, Wealth Creation and Internet Marketing
"Nicola is an inspiring and knowledgeable speaker on the subject of business, entrepreneurship and generating wealth. Her genuine passion to help women develop financial freedom shines through and her presentation included simple, practical advice that listeners were able to take away and apply immediately. Nicola was also willing to stay around afterwards and chat to individuals about their specific issues which was valued by both them and us - that's delivering real value as a speaker!" Sue Stockdale, Explorer & Founder WOW - motivational or what!!! Well done Nicola - I went straight home and registered on your site for your newsletters etc., since then I have received prompts which have made me think about what I want and when, I know this is only the start and there are loads of processes to go, but Nicola made it seem easy and with this one step at a time process - I am sure it is!!!!"

"I've been a Money Gym client of Nicola for several years. In fact she persuaded me to join ecademcy quite a while back - although I didn't take her advice to use it back then! She has helped me learn a great deal about internet marketing. Thanks to her I can throw up a website, and blog, tweet and the like. She's a real pathfinder. I'm particularly grateful to her for introducing me to the Internet Marketers Cruise (MIke Filsaime's Caribbean cruises for internet marketers) and Martin Avis' London lunch - she is a great networker, and go-to girl."

Lucky Sadkong

"Sawasdee Ka Thank you for connecting with me here on the Ecademy network. My boss Julian Stanley is a marketing guy and he knows the power of networking. He has told me to concentrate on recommendations; they are the best form of advertising. He tells me nearly every day that if every person you know has 10 friends that they recommend you to and those 10 friends then recommend you to their 10 friends. That would mean that for every friend that trusts your recommendations, 1,000 people would know about you, Think of the possibilities. We currently market several projects here in Thailand. 1; A condo project with low capital cost, high ROI. 2; High quality serviced retirement homes. 3; High Tech Vehicle tracking systems.4; Exclusive high end sea view apartments. I look forward to networking with you in the future. Best regards Lucky lucky@condospattaya .com "

Huge thanks Nicola!"

I cannot thank her enougth for her inspiration, that has led me to invest in property and to set up 3 blogs and 3 websites with potential based on my passions. Thank you for your vision, Nicola!

Elaine Gold

"I had heard a lot about Nicola's expertise and everything I heard was absolutely spot on!  Nicola didn't let up when myself and partner sought her for advice on our internet marketing strategy. Very perceptive, hugely generous, my pen grew hot as I scribbled a sequence of stratagems and excellent resources as Nicola generously divulged her brand of (extremely successful) internet marketing wisdom to our specific situation. I spent the next two days implementing a number of actions, some of which I had been aware of, but done nothing about. Any alliance with Nicola's energy and expertise will help your business move forward."

Paul Buckley

"Just spent a fantastic hour with Nicola talking Wealth Creation - she really knows her stuff and is very enthusiastic and passionate about her chosen subjects. Connect with her to have your eyes opened!"

Tom Evans

"I've not had the pleasure of meeting Nicola face to face and can't wait to do so. I've just had the real privilege of an hour of her time on the phone Not only does she sound a really warm & giving person, she is probably one of the most savvy Internet marketeers I've ever spoken to (and I've met a few). Now and again you have moments in your life where you make a connection that will not only raise your game but also lead to a lifelong contact. I just had one of those this morning. Thanks Nicola . . . [P.S. . . . I am leaving this testimonial open as I suspect I may need to add to it . . . .] "

Christine Miller

"Having met up with Nicola twice within 24 hours this week, I have to say she is a great speaker, inspiring and generous with the wealth of information and knowledge she has at her fingertips - and enormous fun as well. Her ideas are wonderful, she has really got me thinking and, perhaps more importantly, acting....! "

Liam Wall

"Nicola was happy to share a lot of information on internet marketing which is clearly a subject she knows an awful lot about! I am a convert! "

Michael Gabriel

"Wonderfully informative writing! I have no doubt that Nicola inspires many a success and benefits anyone who has the great fortune to work with her. Nicely done!"

Jean Liggett

"Nicola is inspirational. I admire her entrepreneurial spirit, the speed at which she capitalises on business opportunities, and her commitment to making a difference to people. "

Michael Young

"I recently attended Nicola's Internet Marketing Open Day featuring her colleagues from the Automated Marketing Machine and it was simply one of the best days I have spent on this topic in a long while and I have attended many internet marketing events. This is a must event for anyone who has any kind of busness which could benefit from being marketed online, I learnt some simple new tips on how to get the best out of my website which when implemented will start to drive more and more traffic to the website and mean that we have more people attending our property meetings. Nicola will be speaking at our next event on Aug 2nd in Central London and she is welcome to come and speak anytime ! The concept of the Automated Marketing Machine is simple, a one stop shop which can satisfy all your online needs, it does not get any better or any simpler than that, if you want to be online and see your business skyrocket then you need to go and see Nicola ! better still come and see her at our event and get the best of both worlds ! "

Peter Page

"Nicola is a great person to know - connect with her today! Last week Nicola (and her team) ran an Automated Marketing Machine Open Day in Manchester. Having heard Nicola speak about Internet Marketing and the opportunity to build On-Line businesses, I thought that the Open Day would be a sensible investment both in terms of time and money. Well, my expectations were exceeded! It was a very informative and useful day packed with ideas, hints and tips to use straight away. Nicola was kind enough to give away to attendees a 1 hour coaching session to make sure they are heading in the right direction too. At less than £100 for the day, this is serious value for money. I would certainly recommend this day to anyone who has even a vague interest in on-line businesses. "

Babs Saul

"Nicola is one of the most inspiring people I know of. If nothing else, sign up to her great newsletter."

Francesca 'Inspiring Times' Cassini

"I've now seen Nicola speak at two consecutive Wealth Workout's held by Marcus de Maria. She is wonderful! An inspiring speaker with a wealth of information which she packages in an interesting and absorbable way. I have no doubt I can build an internet marketing business based on Nicola's principles and I look forward to working with her. I recommend her highly. "

Maria Davies

"Working with Nicola on my internet marketing increased my subscriber signups from about 6 a month to over 10 a day. She's the one I recommend to anyone who wants to market their services on the internet because she provides a one-stop shop and route to totally passive income. (And she's a lovely person, too)."

Gloria Payge VAMC

"I met Nicola for the first time this weekend and I have to say she is one powerhouse with a mission! She is an incredible lady with boundless energy and a passion for what she steadfastly believes in. Contact Nicola if you want true financial freedom in your life - because there is no better person to talk to. If you have the will, Nicola definitely has the way :-) "
