011 – Resilience + Grit – How to continue building success. Interview with homebuilder, designer, visionary, industry disrupter: Nicole McGuire
Passion and drive define Nicole. Those traits have been foundational to her success in the highly intense and competitive building market as President & CEO of The McGuire Home Collection; and founder and an industry-disrupter through McGuire Development Group. She entered this field after graduating from the University of Illinois when she joined her family’s 80-year-old construction company.
Nicole builds trusted and longstanding relationships across the housing continuum via deep industry knowledge and is a visionary and gifted conceptual thinker with strengths in strategic planning, team leadership, mentoring, and community outreach.
Grit and resilience – Why just jumping in to get things done is a super-power worth having.
Don’t follow the in-crowd – How looking at what your competition is doing can help you rise above.
Follow your vision – Why it’s important to listen to your gut and take a step forward or eliminate a distraction immediately.
Pulling up others – How to build teams and look outside your own abilities.
Where to find Nicole:
Even if you’re scared, you don’t have everything laid out, or know exactly how it’s going to work, just continue taking that next best step in the direction that you want to go. Evaluate this on a daily basis, maybe even multiple times per day. Whether you think something feels right or feels it needs to be eliminated from your life, make that decision immediately. You know your true desire.
