Hi I’m Nicola,

I’m a Productivity Coach.

I teach overwhelmed & overworked business owners HOW to realign your Work/Life Balance & get your back to enjoying the ‘buzz’ of running your business.

Nicola MacPhail - Gen-i

Are you…?


Just feel like you have too much going on in your head? Constantly distracted at work and at home? Wish you could just switch off?


Constantly tired, not enough hours in the day? Your friends have forgotten what you look like? You’re just not that fun anymore?


Suffering poor work/life balance? Feel like your business isn’t delivering the lifestyle you planned to enjoy?

I’ve been there…

We gather great ideas from books we’ve read or events we attended, experienced those glimmering and exhilarating moments of inspiration from films and people we speak to. But after the inspiration fades, so does the motivation, as we start thinking about …. HOW the hell will I make it happen when I’m so busy and exhausted!

The struggle is real, how do you get some form of Work/Life Balance back? HOW do you find the time to make changes you know you need to make? HOW do you get back to business being fun?  HOW do you learn ways to truly switch off at the end of the day?

This is exactly what I was looking for when I was in the mist of building my business, and what I now teach others to help them on their business journeys…

What I teach:
The HOW Skill Set

The HOW Skill Set is your key to unlocking better productivity, focus and habits to help you get more done. Restoring the Work/Life balance you have always been seeking and get back to enjoying your work again!

I can teach you HOW to make the seemingly impossible, possible.

A bit about me…

I built my property business from a start-up to market-leader, through to finally selling my business in 2018. I know the pain points you experience when building and running a business. I learned vital skills while I built my business. I learned HOW to learn effectively, HOW to reduce my distractions, HOW to focus, HOW to use the power of goal setting, HOW to develop positive routines, and HOW to supercharge my productivity. 

Now, this is what I call the HOW Skill Set and I love to teach it to business owners, through speaking, 1 on 1 coaching, workshops, my Gen-ius Network, online training and small group masterminds

“…I’ve had a successful coaching and therapy business for 20 years.  And while I did a passable job of managing my finances, I never had real clarity about where I was at or, even more importantly, where I was going and how to get there. Well, after spending a few hours with Nicola, I got that clarity beyond what I could have expected!  Not only did I get clear about how to best organise my business and personal finances, I got clear about WHAT I really loved to do, HOW to implement that in 2019, and WHEN to do it.  I also got clear on how to make this plan way more financially successful than ever before, WHILE being way smarter about how many hours I worked!! Win/win/win/win!!…” Isabelle Tierney - Client


I speak at a variety of events about the topics within the HOW Skill Set. From the ‘Power of Intention’, to productivity, to the psychology of change and power of habits, I educate audiences on the power of the HOW Skill Set and sharing tools they can apply to their working lives.

I effortlessly complement a variety of talk subjects, helping audiences make the most of all event content and actually implement key takeaways into their lives. Further, I craft talks of any length, including interactive workshop-style sessions and Q&As.  >> CONTACT ME <<
