Nick’s One Idea
“You know it’s really crazy because my whole life all I wanted to do was be an entrepreneur. I didn’t want to work the 9 to 5 or have a boss and all that lead me to some incredible trials and tribulations in throughout my 20’s. I just literally sacrificed my 20’s and I had a point where I was $50,000 in debt from a business that failed and I looked at my life and it was like you know what, since I was a kid it was my mission to sell a business by 30 and I said “I don’t care that I’m upside down right now. I don’t care that this business just destroyed me”. I’m tattooing on my chest with the goal to sell a business by 30 in two years. . I have no idea how the heck, but it’s going to happen because I say so and from that situation, literally just from going to an event got inspired to become a Facebook marketing expert. That led me to then building and growing rapidly and creating massive success in a short two years and selling it, and what’s wild is that it was at that point where I’d realized “my dream”. I achieved the thing I had been wanting to achieve my whole life.”

Lessons & Struggles
“That is one of those things that is the fear of getting started because one of the biggest fears and doubts that happens for all entrepreneurs. You just have to claim it. You’ve got to have that swagger and you’ve got to claim it and say “I am an expert”.”
“I was just like man “I just need to shift my mindset” and we talked it through and I literally left there and said “you know what I’ve got so much faith in myself, I’ve got so many past examples of overcoming tough things” and the point of this story is we all can go back to our past and leverage an experience where you did overcome something. No matter if it’s in school or in sports, whatever it may be, and I just said you know what I’m as tough as nails man. I’ve been through some stuff and I need to be tough like that and I need to be “the guy”, “I need to suck it up” and I shifted my mindset then and there. It started because I had the awareness to feel what I was going through. And it’s all because of having that awareness of that doubt and that fear.”
Nick’s Book Recommendation
The Secret because it truly changed my entire mindset. What starts in your mind, starts in your emotions and how you feel and as soon you can think big you can change your thoughts just like that story I just shared about changing my thoughts, everything else got into motion and that book for me, started that process of getting me to think the right things in my head and then all the things followed from that.
