Episode 4: How Confidence Shapes Your Mindset with Nicole Hoglund


At the core of most mindset issues, is our confidence. If you are unsure or doubtful, your mindset isn’t going to stick and it isn’t going to grow. Join Raewyn as she talks to Nicole Hoglund, a confidence coach, who believes that you have everything ready inside of you. Unless you believe in your own confidence, you’re going to continue to unintentionally sabotage yourself with negative thought and your mindset will suffer.

We are a small organic lifestyle brand based in the United States. We believe that life is best seen through the eyes of a child. The best things in life are simple and the memories are made with family & friends. The best thing you can do for yourself and your kids is to get outside and just . . . play.

In this episode we talked about:

  • Bad reality TV shows (because who can stay away from that topic?)
  • Listening to your gut when it isn’t smacking you in the face.
  • Nicole’s journey from 80 hour work weeks while pregnant to a miscarriage and 30 hour work weeks in her passion.
  • How embracing confidence in light of your fear, helps you to succeed quicker as an entrepreneur.
  • How going with your gut and instincts shape your mindset.
  • Trusting who you are so you can do your biz your way.

Our favorite quotes:

  • “I needed to make that choice to choose to show up as the person that actually at the deepest core of it I wanted to be.” – Nicole Hoglund
  • “Every single step that you take – even if you don’t feel like it’s right – it’s right for you.” – Nicole Hoglund
  • “Everything that you do is shaping what’s going to happen to you but, if there is going to be an opportunity that is right for you, you’re going to keep coming back to it because it’s subconsciously in your brain.” – Raewyn Sangari
  • “Being aware of the fact that maybe this sucks right now but I’m here because I’m not ready to not be here – that’s a big revelation to have.” – Raewyn Sangari
