How would someone describe Blair? Serial entrepreneur, PR guru, Philanthropist, Sales Goddess, Adventure Seeker, Singer-of-Horrible-Karaoke and Single Mom all come to mind…
Born and raised in upstate NY, Blair has spent half her life avoiding the place and hiding out in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her diverse cultural background has given Blair a truly unique take on life…and business. She knows how to get things done and she’s not afraid to break the mold to make things happen.
Blair bought her first home at the age of 18, graduated with a Bachelors degree in Psychology by 20, and landed her first job as a stock broker all before her 21st birthday. (She even had her Series 7, 63, 55, 4 and 24). In other words, she knows how to get what she wants. But all that came to a screeching halt one day when Blair realized she didn’t want to be a slave to corporate America so she abruptly packed up her desk at the securities firm she was working for, got up, walked out and never looked back.
“When you’re faced with the decision to challenge the status quo or remain stationary, challenge the status quo. Always.” – Blair Nicole
That decision would ultimately shape the rest of Blair’s professional life. With a few failed businesses under her belt, she finally settled on Marketing and PR because it gave her a creative outlet and the ability to transform businesses from a mere idea into something alive and tangible. She’s worked with clients in just about every industry and niche imaginable but has a soft spot for Startups and Social Causes. Her clients have been featured on; Tech Crunch, Sarbanes Oxley Compliance Journal, Men’s Health, Gizmodo and more.
Blair is also on the Board of Directors for two non profits; LOSS Suicide Support Group and American Med Chem, a social enterprise with the mission of finding cures for children with rare diseases. During her time in Salt Lake City, Blair was also Chair of the Marketing Committee for SCORE Salt Lake (sponsored through the SBA). Volunteering and philanthropy isn’t just a hobby for Blair, it’s a way of life and an addiction.
“If your only goal in business is to make money, don’t bother. Business for good is simply good for business.” -Blair Nicole
Blair enjoys writing, traveling, spending time with her son, singing terrible karaoke and doing things people say she can’t do. In September 2015, she will be embarking on a 13 month long work and travel-adventure around the US with her 3 year old son. She’s also a Business & Marketing Columnist for Examiner.com and a Contributor at Elite Daily.
Blair has been featured on ABC news TV (3 times), BPlans.com, Docurated, CEO Blog Nation, NFIB Business Magazine and countless other news outlets. And the rest, they say, is history…
