It’s time to pass on perfectionism, trade burnout for boundaries, and find joy in your job again.

is this you?

How much of this sounds familiar?

  • You’ve been overworking yourself for too long, and you’re beyond burned out
  • Your job is no longer fulfilling, and you can’t even remember the last time you had a goal that inspired you
  • You wake up at three o’clock in the morning with racing thoughts
  • You’re constantly worried about whether you’re good enough
  • You keep coming up short on the promotion but are working harder than everyone
  • You’re giving up family time because you work so much and regretting what you’re missing at home
  • Your long work hours are causing friction between you and your loved ones
  • Constant people pleasing has you feeling like everyone wants a piece of you and there’s not enough to go around

here's the good news

Achieving success and fulfillment at work doesn't have to come at the expense of your health and well-being.

As an overachiever, it often feels like the burdens you carry are impossible to unload. But there’s hope: you can learn to set boundaries, say no, recognize your value, and find joy and success in your career again.

Together we can make it happen.

nice to meet you

Hello, I'm Nickey

Let’s be real here for a minute: being an overachiever at work seems like a strength. You’re praised for overdelivering and putting in more hours than everyone else. Everyone comes to you when they need something fixed. You get recruited into meetings and asked to be on committees for the company’s latest innovation or project. You might even move up the company ladder faster than others.  

But all this achievement has a dark side.

I know it well. As a reformed overachiever, I understand the hidden costs of making everyone at work happy. I’ve experienced the burnout, the lack of boundaries, the lack of respect that takes you by surprise, and the sting of being passed up for an opportunity even when you’ve earned it.

High performance is
a huge asset...

Once you learn how to drop the hustle of perfectionism

There’s nothing inherently wrong with operating at a high level in your career and personal life. But too often, those of us who are wired to perform often find ourselves burned out from ingrained habits we don’t even recognize we have.

This is where coaching comes in. Together we’ll uncover those habits and mindsets that are holding you back from experiencing fulfilling performance without perfectionism.
