Have you reached a plateau in your career or with your company?
Do you want clarity, focus, and a plan to get to the next level?
If you feel you're not making the kind of impact you want, that you’re working hard but not getting results, then let’s talk.
I’ll work with you to create a path forward to help you reach your goals. Your path is illuminated by your values and what’s important to you. We’ll work to make sure fear is not holding you back, and that you’re ready to take calculated risks to grow.
I’m a successful business consultant, coach, and dynamic speaker who built and sold a $3.5 million marketing and venture-building consultancy. For 15 years, I led a team that worked with dozens of B2B clients. I worked closely with high-level executives to develop strategic solutions to reduce costs, increase revenue, and launch new products. Our team had a purpose-forward culture, focused on professional development and inclusion.
In 2018, our firm was acquired and I spent three years as an executive running the business development team and managing key clients in the $7 million division. I also helped navigate through a subsequent acquisition that more than doubled the division in size and staff.
After years of volunteer activism, I left my executive role to run for office. My background uniquely positioned me as a strong candidate for Georgia Labor Commissioner. I built my campaign from the ground up while developing deep relationships with unions, activists, fellow candidates, and community leaders.
Running for office electrified my passion to help individuals grow. As a certified Positive Psychology coach, I founded ThirdEdge Performance Solutions to offer coaching, consulting, and training. I am now using my experience in team building, strategic planning, coalition building, and innovation to coach others to make a greater impact.

Working with Nicole was wonderful. Nicole was very insightful, and guided me to think more strategically about my goals. It was really motivating every week to try and reach the micro goals we set up from the previous week. I found myself throughout the 8 week time period gaining more mental clarity, the ability to strategically plan for situations, meet deadlines, and dissolve situations that may have occurred. Great experience as now I have a more intune approach to running my business. Overall I highly recommend. working with Nicole, and intend on working with her further in the future.Jason James
At the time of my coaching, I was trying to sort through my own burnout while being approached with multiple opportunities after being laid off. I was also a newly licensed foster parent. While opportunities are great, Nicole helped me to be ruthlessly honest about my time, energy levels, and what is realistic. She helped me to reaffirm my preference for working for myself, guided me on questions to ask others as I navigated considerations of each opportunity, and reminded me to not go beyond my boundaries. I found her coaching to be helpful in navigating this turning point in my career and life. She is an invaluable resource I will return to and I'm grateful for our time spent together.Lora Hawk
Nicole is an outstanding leadership coach and mentor. During our time together, she drew on her diverse experiences to help me think through how I could best approach the challenges confronting my organization in a way that was effective, yet was consistent with my own personality, style, and organization. I have become a more effective, efficient leader. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to become more efficient and effective.Jonathan

When I first decided to dive into getting a career coach, I had no idea what I was supposed to ask or expect. After interviewing 5 or 6 different coaches, I decided to work with Nicole. She is great at listening and helping to guide you towards what you want to accomplish by summing up your words into smaller bits of information and that makes it easier to accomplish your tasks. I have found that career coaching with Nicole has been an incredibly valuable tool for me in seeking guidance and direction in my professional life. It has helped me clarify my goals, identify my strengths and weaknesses, and develop a plan to achieve the career outcomes that I desire. In addition to her expertise, I am impressed by the personalized approach that she takes to career coaching. She has worked with me to create a customized plan that considers my unique strengths, goals, and circumstances. This ensures that you receive the individualized attention and support that you need to achieve your desired outcomes. I would highly recommend Nicole Horn to anyone looking for career coaching services. She is knowledgeable, compassionate, and dedicated to helping her clients succeed. I am very happy that I decided to work with a coach and especially with Nicole.Dallas Smith
Nicoles coaching has been a huge asset to my professional development over the years. She quickly grasps the situation, personalities, and dynamics at play. She is careful not to project her own opinion of what I should do. Rather, she has helped me achieve my goals by listening carefully and offering re-framed perspectives on a given situation. Working with Nicole makes me feel like I have a fierce warrior on my side, empowering me to achieve my goals in ways that are authentic to me.Mara Block
Nicole is my go-to whenever I am in a situation where I feel stuck or am trying to navigate ambiguity in my professional life. She has an exceptional ability to not just bring her own curiosity to a situation but to activate mine as well. I find this invaluable whenever I am feeling stuck or trapped by a situation. Nicoles ability to nimbly move from a micro perspective to a big picture meta perspective allows her to help me surface possibilities that work for my values and the outcomes I am looking for. I also appreciate her ability to give voice to my experiences whether it is frustration or elation. I would not be where am today without her mentorship and guidance.Guy Felder
