the simplicity circle
doors close in...
The Simplicity Circle has been designed for those of you who've been resonating with what I've been sharing at The Simplicity Project and want to experience a profound shift in the way they do business.
My name is Nicola Bird and over the last few years I have been immersed in a new understanding that lies beneath how and why people create the results they want in the world - with simplicity, ease and grace.
It’s completely and utterly different from anything I’ve come across in the 20 years I’ve spent studying Business, Psychology and personal development.
It's a game changer.
As a result of this understanding, the way I show up in life has totally transformed and it has done the same for the lives of the people I've been sharing it with.
I’m in flow in my business more of the time, the creative and innovative ideas are there whenever I need them and I'm overcoming challenges far more elegantly than in the past (!). I’ve taken my team from 10 to 2 , and simplified my business hugely, whilst still taking the biggest salary I ever have in 2015.
My family life is more relaxed and enjoyable, my anxiety and migraines have disappeared and I’m fitter and healthier too– all as a direct result of understanding the Simplicity Framework more deeply.
It might sound weird, but I feel like I"ve found the piece that I felt was missing even when my business hit seven figures. I have a deeper understanding of where inspiration comes from, which has impacted how I live my life on a day-to-day basis. And THAT, though intangible, has been incredibly valuable.
I've been quietly working away with a number of clients over the past couple of years and this understanding of what makes humans tick is what's allowed me to impact them far more profoundly than ever before.
Before I worked with you, Nic, I was being a control freak and thinking that I was the one that had to make it ALL happen. I was working really hard at growing my business but wasn't getting the proportional results for the effort I was putting in.
I wanted simplicity and this is exactly what I am achieving. You told me I would get rid of 90% off my to-do list (which I remember laughing at) and now I have no to-do list and work intuitively on what needs sorting.
How is this different from other programs out there? There's no homework and nothing to do (and I know that sounds odd and completely ridiculous but once you start working with Nic, you will find out ALL about this in a very good way!)
Nic, you came at just the right time for me. You've cut through the crap of self-help woo woo stuff and helped me realise how to strip my business and life back so I enjoy the process rather than chasing results.
And funnily enough, in focusing on the process, I now enjoy better results than when I used to focus solely on results! I feel calmer, more at peace and love that I am developing my ability to laugh at myself more ... oh and my business is doing rather well out it too!
Stripping back my business to basics was really scary at the time, but 18 months on I've been able to create so much more from doing less - I've created more value for my clients and created more revenue & time or me. What's not to love!
And here's my personal inspiration: I want to share this understanding with people just like you, and work with you to achieve extra-ordinary results similar to those experienced by my past and current clients.
An experience in which you come from a place of inspiration and can help your clients do the same.
Looking back over the last 12 months since we've been working together, my revenue has doubled, I'm running a 2nd company and find myself making investments in partnerships and platforms for a 7-figure business 12 months from now.
HOW DOES The Simplicity circle WORK?
We kick off with Simplicity 101. This starts the minute you sign up.
This is an 8 part introductory program where every few days you'll receive audio and video trainings, to help you grasp the fundamentals of the inner game of simplicity and successful entrepreneurship.
If you've been following along with the Simplicity Project blog, you'll have grasped some of the basics of the direction I'll be pointing in during the Simplicity Circle; Simplicity 101 takes this to the next level.
This programme has helped me to feel so much more calm, resilient and positive. I'm understanding more deeply day by day how my thoughts generate different feelings. Life seems simpler, calmer and more productive.
Working with Nicola opened my eyes to a completely new way of being. I grappled to get my head around some of the concepts (as they are so different to what conventional business strategy says) but once I had relaxed into it, I discovered a more relaxed, graceful and joyful way of working without the 'shoulds', without the overwhelm and without the constant questioning about whether what I was doing was "right". Thank you Nic for opening my eyes to a simpler and more joyful life.
Then each month (at 3pm EST/ 8pm London on a Thursday) you'll join me for a 90 minute Simplicity Circle Call where we go deep in our exploration of thriving as an entrepreneur designed to create extra-ordinary results in business and life.
You're the common denominator where-ever you show up, whichever business you're involved with, and whatever you choose to get up to in the future. Therefore YOU and what makes you tick are the main focus of this call.
Here are the themes for each call, and in addition to these I'll be sharing what I'm seeing that's new and fresh about simplicity - you'll hear it on these calls before anyone else.
The recordings of each call will be uploaded for you within 48 hours of each call, and you'll be able to download or podcast them to listen to on the go if you prefer.
So even if you can't make a call live, you can still listen in and post your questions for me in our Facebook Private Group to answer following each call.
You'll find a number of recordings from past calls already there waiting for you to dive in whenever you're ready to get started.
A couple of years ago I experienced an insight that allowed me to transform almost overnight from a very hard working and underpaid expert to a premium coach who works a lot less and earns a lot more whilst doing work that I love.
In the past year working with Nic with the simplicity framework I’ve been able to reduce my entrepreneurial anxiety so that my state of mind is now aligned with my freedom business.
I’ve also stopped doing a lot of things that I’d done for most of my adult life such as spending hours journalling about my worries, and instead used the time to write a new book.
The book launch was the simplest and most stress free launch I’ve ever done and the book hit international bestseller in 5 countries!
Although I’m far from perfect with simplicity, I finally have a mindset that I can tap into instantly and no longer need to be constantly ‘working on myself’ and reading every self-help book ever written.
Nic is a real inspiration to work with and I’m so happy i followed my gut and joined her program.
Really appreciate being able to talk about stuff with you, Nic, that I just wouldn't get a chance to talk about usually.
The Simplicity Circle Facebook Group is where you have an opportunity to connect with other simplicity-seekers, develop relationships, ask questions, and share this journey together.
This is also the place where I'll be posting additional resources and bonuses as the year goes on - all designed to help you deepen your grounding first and foremost as a human being, and secondly as an entrepreneur.
Who is The Simplicity Circle for?
The Simplicity Circle will help if you’re an entrepreneur experiencing some (or all!) of the following:
- A constant stream of brilliant ideas, which is great EXCEPT it results in a constantly racing mind so you feel you never really take a break
- You feel like you're 'winging it' in your business and now's the time to 'do it properly' to take it to the next level (hint: I'm not going to show you how to 'do it properly', I'm going to show you why that's EXACTLY what not to do!)
- A feeling you haven’t had a good, fresh, new idea for years and you’re bored of thinking the same old thoughts - inspiration is totally lacking!
- You've tried all the seven-step blueprints going but it's not quite coming together for you in the way it seems to for your teacher (that's because you're trying to implement their inspirations and strategies, not yours!)
- You probably already have your own way of helping your clients get results, but you want to more insight into how the inner game of thriving could help you impact your clients more profoundly
- You’re already successful but it feels like there’s still something missing - is making more money really all there is to do now?
- A sense of urgency and pressure about reaching your goals as quickly as possible
- Experiencing stress or anxiety as an undercurrent in your day-to-day life
- Working way harder than you want to be – which is impacting on your family time, or
- Deliberately holding yourself back in case you end up working too hard or neglecting your family – which is impacting on your potential
- Juggling so many plates, you’re constantly on edge that you’re just one f*ck up away from total meltdown
- An awareness that the way you’re doing life is just too damn complicated
- A knowing that there HAS to be an easier, more graceful way than you’re currently doing it!
And you get the fact that there's an inner game of simplicity that's key here.
You know who you are.
When Nicola introduced me to this very simple understanding about how humans work in October 2013, we had turned over £197,000 with a profit of £50,ooo and owed £20k on credit cards....now things are different.
Our turnover is up to £750,000 and profits are up to £250,000 and no debt on personal cards so you could say a dramatic difference !
It has also enabled me to serve my clients at a much deeper level - the effects I'm seeing with them are truly transformational.
What is the simplicity circle NOT all about?
I’m holding back nothing about what I’ve learned about these in my years of being a mother, a recovering control-freak, a wife and growing a seven figure online business.
However, what I’ve realised is step-by-steps formulas can sometimes be useful, they are NOT transformational. So if that's what you're looking for, this isn't the program for you.
And transformation, coupled with inspiration is usually what's required to create extra-ordinary results.
My experience has been that the more I understand what goes on between the ears of human beings, the more easily and simply I’ve been able to grow my own business, take care of my family and simplify my life.
And I want to show you how to access that same source of clarity too.
With a monthly dose of simplicity.

I was at a stage where I was starting to question if being a Yoga Teacher was the right career, although I totally loved what I was doing. The downside was running around London teaching numerous classes leading to me feeling burnt out.
It seemed obvious to me the next logical step was to go online or so I thought. That all changed once I started working with Nicola - I realised that path actually wasn't for me.
With simplicity and ease a whole new path opened up for me which I could never saw coming and still don't. "CurveSomeYoga" was born out of the blue: a movement that is about changing the face of yoga and making yoga more accessible to plus size individuals.
There was no planning or strategy it just felt right.
Nicola enabled me to explore this. The idea just came from a place of knowing and just felt right - sounds a little whoo, whoo but that's the truth.
Life has become so much easier and more rewarding. Ideas flow but they come from a deeper place.
After all the dozens of courses and programs I have done, this was the most liberating. Truly liberating.
I let go the angst-y need to prepare marketing plans, write blogs to a timetable and work hard at getting new business in. And somehow it all gets handled.
I used to worry about getting new business in the door. And then I worried that if I didn’t worry about it, everything would fall apart – like it was a thing that needed me to worry about it. Crazy I know.
And when I stopped worrying or even caring, clients kept turning up and asking to work with me. And I don’t need to tell you, they are the best kind.
And then there were the public speaking events. In the past, I would spend hours thinking about and preparing my talks, working on powerpoints, yadayada… Now, I just turn up and know that the right words will come. The first time was pretty scary. Even as I was being introduced, I was thinking, ‘What the hell am I going to say now?’ And then I started and they could hardly shut me up. And every single person there requested a session with me. Simplicity itself.
So how is life different? Difficult to define, but I know it is more relaxed and more spontaneous. I smile a lot more and spend more time doing things I love – like reading and gardening and hanging out in the coffee shop with friends and travelling; basically all the things I thought only working really hard and worrying about it would get me. The business continues to come in and the revenue continues to grow.
