About One Epic Place

Julie and Nicole came together because of common needs: a place to hang a shingle, the desire to start businesses to help others, and to be part of the community. They both wanted a professional place to do business but didn’t have the ability to afford it individually. They realized in order to make money they needed to see clients, and in order to see clients they needed a place to do it.

As they shared their first space and slowly grew their businesses, they saw the same situation many times with friends and colleagues. Their purpose, business goals, and path started to change in a very unexpected and exciting way. It seemed their purpose and place in this community had bigger plans than they even initially dreamed.

As Julie and Nicole got to know each other, they realized they both came from a similar legacy… one of community building, leadership, and some surprising similarities.. Their combined histories, educational backgrounds, personalities and talents, dreams and passions, made it clear that they were a force to be reckoned with. And so birthed One EPIC Place.

Our Conversation

I first met Julie and Nicole through our local chamber of commerce. I was quickly impressed with what they’re doing with One Epic Place. I’m already familiar with co-working, having been a part of Beahive in Beacon for the past few years. I love coworking, as an entrepreneur without my own space, because it provides a way to be around other creative people and people in a working environment, without going to a coffee shop. It provides the things you’d need from an office, and a community. One Epic Place is definitely a unique version of coworking, in that it offers spaces for health care and healing professionals, such as massage therapists, talk therapists, and personal chefs.

I’d been dying to have Julie and Nicole on the show, since we started working together last year. And, we finally made it happen. We had a very wide ranging conversation, and I definitely learned some things, even though I see Julie and Nicole a few times each week!

In our conversation, we discuss:

  • How serendipity played a role in their business,
  • Co-Working, what it is, how it works, how it’s changing the game
  • Homeschooling and traveling the country in an RV
  • The business of coaching
  • How coaching is different from therapy
  • How to know when to end an entrepreneurial venture
  • Business Partnerships – what to look for and how to make them successful
  • How to balance being a business owner, a mom and a wife
  • How to incorporate interns into your business
  • The Invisible Hand
  • The importance of open and effective communication
  • And so much more!
