Small Business Trainer and Coach

Nicole Clark

Owner, Trainer, Coach

Nicole Clark has a passion for working with entrepreneurs to create the small business of their dreams through implementing sound business plans and marketing strategies, creating reliable financial forecasts, and implementing action plans for success.

She has worked with hundreds of small business owners over the past 30+ years. Her company, KISStrategies for Business Inc., is a play on Keep it Simple Strategies for Business. Thus, clients are encouraged not to overthink things and not to let perfection stand in the way of success.

Her focus is on taking the mystery out of being an entrepreneur for anyone looking to launch or grow a small business. She does this by teaching and consulting on how to create a viable business concept and formulate a business plan that not only provides the path to follow but can also be taken to a lender or investor to raise any necessary capital. Additional areas of support include financial forecasting, market research, business launch, marketing plans, strategic planning and overcoming overwhelm.

Recently she launched KISStrategies’ Performance Coaching Program which offers self-study coaching for small business owners once per month on various areas of personal development such as building confidence or improving communication.

Nicole was delighted to be awarded a contract with Community Futures Okanagan Simlkameen in September 2015, to collaborate with them on the delivery of WorkBC’s Self-Employment Program to entrepreneurs on EI, with disabilities, or with other barriers to employment. This is an extremely fulfilling part of her business.

Since establishing her business in Penticton in 2014, she has guided dozens of small business owners in the small communities of British Columbia’s South Okanagan through a successful launch of their business plan. It thrills her to participate in the ‘aha’ moments as her clients embark on their entrepreneurial journey. Her successful results with her clients led to nominations in two consecutive years in four categories for the Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards. These were Business Leader of the Year, Community Support Excellence, Professional Services Excellence, and Home-Based Business of the Year.

Nicole is embarking on a new journey to take her business training and consulting beyond the South Okanagan to reach entrepreneurs across Canada to help them take the actions necessary to move them from “I have a great business idea!” to “Open for Business”.

Watch for her online course “ProfitRx” to really build your foundation for the success of your business.

Nicole spends time as President of Penticton Women in Business and as a member of South Okanagan 100 Women Who Care. In 2017 she was honored by JCI Penticton with an Honourary Membership.
