Nicke Paddock is a badass babe. She’s a fun-loving, hard-living gal who puts her all into everything. I’m proud to call her a friend and know she’s an amazing human being. Learn more about her here.
Nicke, what made you decide to become a coach?
I went to a life coach about 7 years ago and it helped me so much I decided one day I would become one so I could help others in the same way. This winter was the perfect time to do it as I was going through lots of health stuff and wanted to keep myself busy through the long cold winter.
Can you tell me why you chose Rhodes Wellness College for your education? What about Rhodes attracted you?
I had been researching for a couple of years which program to take and when I read about the program at Rhodes I knew it was going to be similar to the techniques that life coach used on me years ago. It was also not too long of a commitment or too expensive. There were definitely less expensive programs but they didn’t seem to be the type of coaching I was looking for.
Do you have a niche? If so, what is it?
Still working on it, but I am thinking of going with meditation manifestation coaching and maybe living your ultimate life coaching.
What kinds of offerings do you have? What services do you provide?
I am still working on this. I’ve been doing lots or research and will hopefully have a focus soon.
What makes you unique among other coaches? How is your approach different?
I have been meditating for over 15 years and know you can manifest things into your life by being still and asking the universe for what you need or want. I will work with clients to identify what is wrong, what is needed and how to then meditate and manifest what they need. I will also be working on helping people live an ultimate life because we only have one life! That is why my business is called Only One.
Who is your ideal client?
My ideal client is someone who has a well-rounded life, living well and for the most part happy but has identified an area of their life that could be better and they need some help with it. My ideal client will believe that manifestation is possible…or at least be curious about it.
What has your own journey been like – as a coach or as a person and how do the two align?
As I was taking the course I was thinking the whole time I LOVE THIS! THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED AND NEEDED AND I CAN’T WAIT TO HELP OTHERS. I have always believed life is short so let’s make the most of it even though it can throw you some real shit deals, I want to help people move past the shit deals. I have been pretty successful in my own life with moving past the crap and building a life where I am conscious of what I want and need from it.
You took a trip to Thailand earlier this year? What was that like?
AMAZING! I took this trip because I had just recently been dealt a shit deal. It was on my bucket list for 14 years! I needed clarity on my next steps after a miscarriage and IVF. I did lots of meditation and wellness while there and the universe delivered….it gave me vision on what my next moves are. Still in the process so we will see if it was the right path.
I know you’re big on having fun, Nicke. So, what are some things you do that bring you joy?
Yes fun, fun, fun! Life is so short and I believe fun is one of the things you should be able to say at the end of your journey that you did well! Gosh most my life has been fun, I try to incorporate it into everyday life with my family and husband by laughing lots, being silly and trying to make others laugh. I always say, if nobody’s dying you might as well have fun with it. I travelled a ton when I was in my teens and 20s backpacking around. I realized that travelling brings me joy so I try to do lots of it. I spend lots of time with my girlfriends, we all bought seadoo’s and go out every Thursday night on them in the summer. I try to only surround myself with people who make the “fun” cut, the uptight type are not for me lol. I also have future fun plans with my girlfriends that when we all retire we buy Winnebago’s and be the travelling fun girls going all around North America being wild and free, maybe even hire hot young male drivers haha.
I think taking the time to identify what brings you joy and fun to your life is so important and then following through and doing it.
What do you think makes you a badass? I know I have several ideas.
I drove around Thailand on a moped, if you’ve ever been there you will know how badass that is haha! I think just living life in the grey, with no hard lines and rules (besides the major ones that falls under my integrity, morals and values) and not sweating the small stuff, picking only five things to give a fuck about and letting the rest roll off your shoulder, is pretty badass. Oh and saying fuck a lot! Haha.
How can we find your website or your social media? Please provide links.
Not finished this yet, I’m a marketing junkie so I am thinking lots and researching the right way to do this. I’m also taking my time as I’m not ready to be able to put 100% into it yet. But it will probably be something along the lines of onlyone.com
