Living Life Well.

Hi! I’m Nichole – your go to resource for a balanced lifestyle. I believe in working hard, taking care of your body, enjoying all the world has to offer, and having fun along the way.

I am married to my best friend, Brian. We have been married for over 20 years and he is my biggest fan, supporter, and encourager. He loves me unconditionally and has always encouraged me to unleash my dreams. Together we have three children, Devin (23), Dylan (20), and Lauren (17). We love spending time together as a family at our lake home in central Minnesota – boating, wake surfing, grilling, and just having a great time. And of course, we travel often!

From a young age, I always knew that one day I’d have my own business. After working a very short time in the corporate world, I ended up cleaning houses part time which allowed me to be home with my young children more while fulfilling my need to work and serve others (I love people). While cleaning houses may not be considered the most glamourous, it was my first taste of what it meant to be self-employed and set off a spark inside of me to explore my passions and develop a business where I could make a difference in people’s lives and maintain the freedom and independence I desired.

With that fuel I became a travel agent and launched my own travel agency, Destination Vacation, fourteen years ago. I’ve been planning custom vacations ever since.

In the early years of business, I worked so hard to grow my business and raise my family that I was forgetting to take care of myself. If you’re a parent - you know exactly what I am talking about. Everyone else came first despite my desire to look and feel my best and that created a rift between who I wanted to be and the yo-yo dieter I had become. When my travel business had really taken off and my kids were a little older – I knew I had to do something. So I hired a personal trainer who introduced me to clean eating, great supplements, and the power of movement. Needless to say, I never looked back!

Five years later started a second business, Jump on My Journey, helping men and women feel their best as a Lifestyle Coach and IsaGenix Associate.

Today I operate both businesses under my personal brand, Nichole Winter, as I share how I balance my lifestyle, keep to my goals, travel the world, have the energy to keep up with three teenagers, and still enjoy a glass of wine and my mom’s cheesecake!

I’m grateful you stopped by and look forward to the opportunity to learn more about you.

Whether you’re hoping to plan your dream vacation, take control of your lifestyle, or seek balance between the two, I’d be honored to hear your story and help you along the way.

I look forward to getting to know you! Please don't hesitate to reach out to me.
