Turn Your Gift 
Into a Multifigure Business

While Working Your 9-5

Imagine if you could build a service based business, while working your 9-5, that replaced your 6-figure salary on your job, provided you time & financial freedom, and allowed you to hand in your resignation letter, so that you could truly live a life of purpose, while helping those you were designed to serve?

 

Well It's Possible!

Do You Daydream About Starting Your Own Service Based Business, But These Struggles Keep Holding You Back?

Stressed Woman

Wingin It Syndrome

You weren't taught entrepreneurship in school. Even with a business degree. So you have no idea how to start and run a business.

 

You’ve tried to figure it out on your own by watching endless youtube videos & webinars, but you still feel confused on where to start.

You get information overload and don't know what info to use and what will truly work.

Imposter Syndrome

You feel like because you've never started a business before or you weren't raised into a family of entrepreneurs, you are not qualified. 

 

 You don't have a business degree, so you are not educated enough to start and run a business.

 

You don't have enough experience yet, so you are not ready yet.

Fear of Failure

Fear of what your loved ones will think if you leave your “good paying job” to start a business; (didn't someone say that most businesses fail in the first 3 years)? 

 

Fear of not being able to make enough money to support you and your family; a failed business.

 

Fear of not having enough time to work your job and start a business; failing before you start.

Uncertain On Where To Start?

Starting a business from the ground up and deciding to transition from your job, can be extremely scary & challenging due to all of the uncertainty and confusion around where to even start.

 

Especially because we are not taught how to start or run a business in school.  

The education system was specifically designed to prepare you to enter the workforce and work for someone else. Everything you learn in higher education from middle school - university level, teaches you how to become an EMPLOYEE. Not how to become a CEO.

And I want to help change that for you.

Because we all know that journey will leave you feeling hopeless, & unfulfilled.

For starters, I want to let you in on a few facts. You no longer have to...

 

  • Live a life defined and determined by someone else. It's your life. Create what you want.   

  • Keep suppressing your gifts and purpose, due to fear of failing and what others will think.

  • Live paycheck to paycheck, afraid to leave your job due to loss of a steady income. 


You have an assignment for your life...

 

And that is to serve those with a specific problem that only you were uniquely designed to solve.

Are You Ready to Start Living In Your Purpose?

I Know Where You Are & How You Feel...

 

You have degrees and knowledge on business in general, but no real guidance or clear blueprint on how to start a business, what your process should look like, what systems to use, or how to market your business to attract the right clients to your business.  

And the vicious cycle continues.  

 

You tirelessly watch countless youtube videos trying to learn different strategies from website design, to marketing automation, to trying different systems on how to build, organize, and structure your business.

 

Wasting time, energy, and money that has lead you to a dead end.

 

Trying to do it on your own with all of the piecemeal information that you’ve gathered, to still be left feeling confused, frustrated, and defeated on what to do next. 

All the while, staying stuck in your job (that you know it's time to move on from) because you are too afraid to take the leap on a business that you are uncertain about and fear will fail.

But, I Have Good News!
It Doesn't Have To Be This Way...

You Have the Power to Stop
The Vicious Cycle...

As a retired Certified Interior Decorator, Entrepreneur, TV & Podcast Host, and past Advertising & Marketing Executive for over 10 years, I know exactly what it feels like to have worked in the corporate world for a long time, to then transition into the world of Entrepreneurship, and start a business from the ground up.
 

I'll be honest. It wasn’t easy trying to do it on my own.

 

When I decided to change careers and start my interior design business, I knew nothing about interior design, let alone, how to start and run a business in it.  However, I made the DECISION, to go after what I wanted.

 

To bet on myself, and push past my fear of failure.
 

I started preparing for my transition from my job (with the little faith that I had), I went back to school to get my interior decorating degree to hone my craft, invested in coaching and training programs on how to start an interior design business, and applied everything that I learned until I had built my very own 6-figure business empire. 
 

And before I knew it, in one year, I had replaced my 6-figure income from my full-time job, with my part-time, interior decorating business.

 

And in year 3, I handed in my resignation. 
 

So what I want you to know is that, there is a solution to creating the life and business that you want, and I created it just for you! 

The Employee to Founder Course.

FAQ's
  • What is the Employee to Designer Coaching Program?
    Employee to Designer Coaching Program teaches emerging Interior Designers & Decorators how to Transition, Build, Grow, & Scale a profitable multifigure, residential interior design business, while working your 9-5, so you can transition from your 9-5 in smart, responsible and healthy way.
  • What is included when I enroll into the ETD Program?
    We offer 3 different Membership levels that you can enroll in. The Professional Membership is great for those who are working a 9-5 job, but deeply desire to Transition from their job to build, grow, and scale a 6-figure, residential interior design business. This membership includes our signature Transition Course, that teaches you how to transition from your 9-5, to full-time interior design in a smart, responsible and healthy way. (It does not include the Employee to Designer Course) The Associate Membership is great for those who are ready to Transition, but now need to learn how to build the business from the ground up. Typically it's best to have taken the Transition course first, but it's not required to join this membership level. You'll learn everything you need to know to Build, Grow, and Scale a 6-figure, residential interior design business in 12 short weeks. The Executive Membership is great for those who want access to the Employee to Designer Program, and EVERYTHING in the Executive Membership package, but also need and want private 1:1 coaching and support over the 12 weeks. You'll get to meet with Monique Nicole one a month for an hour for a private 1:1 coaching session, where you can ask questions, get feedback, and get help building your business in a highly custom way. We suggest you choose the membership level that will best serve your needs based on where you are in your entrepreneurial journey. Each membership offers a different level of support and coaching. When you enroll into the program and choose your membership level, all memberships (not including the Professional) will give you instant access to the ETD course (includes 12 guided modules). You'll also get access to our 2x Per Month Group Coaching Calls, as well as our Private ETD Members Club, where you can connect and learn with other members in the program. Our Membership Options Include: Professional Membership Associate Membership Executive Membership
  • When does the program start?
    We offer the Employee to Designer Coaching Program 3 times per year. Please see below our program schedule, so you know when you can join our next 12 week program: Note: Our Monthly Coaching calls don't follow the course, but it does provide additional training and coaching to help you get the best results out of the program. The 2024 - 2025 ETD program dates are as follows: Fall Program: September 5th - November 28th Winter Program: December 5th - February 27th Spring Program: March 6th - May 29th
  • When will I get access to the program?
    Upon enrolling, you'll get instant access to the program and all of it's courses, that you can go through at your own pace. You will get access to our monthly group coaching calls that follows the 12-Module course (the professional membership includes our Transition Course) as added support for you.
  • How long will I have access to the program?
    All Membership Levels include LIFETIME access to the program, courses, and on-going coaching and support based on the membership level you enrolled in. You also get Lifetime access to all of the updates that we make to the program in the future. The one time enrollment fee is non refundable. Should you decide to cancel your membership, you will loose access the course and all of the on-going support including the monthly coaching calls, office hours and private coaching that has not been used. You will need to rejoin and pay the enrollment fee to re-join.
  • What is the cost of the program?
    It depends on the membership level you choose. You can view the membership enrollment fees on our website at: www.moniquenicole.co For every membership level (except the Professional Membership) we offer a payment plan option. You can choose to pay in full and Save 20% on the enrollment fee, or you can stretch out the payments and pay monthly. Additionally: We offer a 3rd Party Funding Program for our Executive + Presidential Membership Levels, when you add on either our Website or Branding Service. This is a great program, if you don’t have the capital investment to pay in full, but would like to make smaller payments over a longer period of time. We now have a third-party consulting group that is available to help match you with a funder, who can fund up to 100% of the program amount! Here are the benefits of funding and why we added this as a service for you: Low affordable monthly payments (can be as low as $350.00 per month or less) No prepayment penalty – can pay off at anytime 1st payment is not due for 30 days Soft pull to apply (won’t hurt your credit score) As far as the rates, they will vary depending on your credit. You’ll have an opportunity to review the best offers with a funding specialist and address any questions before making a decision. And because it’s a soft pull, meaning your credit score won’t be affected for applying, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain! Once you’re approved, they’ll work directly with you to get the money you need to make your ability to work with us become a reality! And of course, we can discuss alternative payment options if needed.
  • What if I'm not satisfied with the program? Can I get a refund?
    All of our courses have a proven program & blueprint, that’s been studied and used by other emerging entrepreneurs, who have achieved amazing results. This is because I took my over 10 years of marketing and advertising experience and applied it to the program, along with my over a decade of experience with running my own 6-figure business. In addition, I’ve spent hundreds of hours creating the right mix of content to help you master how to build and run a profitable multifigure business. You will learn in 3 months or less, what took me over 10 years to learn. The ETD Program and it's courses are not for you if you’re looking for a quick-fix or are unwilling to commit to creating and growing a profitable multifigure interior design business. In order to protect the integrity of the members who have invested their hard earned time and money into building their dream business, there is a strict no-refund policy. So I highly advise that you do your research, read our terms and conditions, and make sure you are ready to commit to creating the life and business that you want before joining. We look forward to working with you and seeing you in the program!
