By Nick James

Nick is talking to  Amy Rowlinson about the creation of Expert Empires and the ‘why’ that drives him forward every day.

They discuss his journey and why it’s important to serve, support and inspire and build something different.

Expert Empires was created from a desire to redefine events and it’s continued to evolve supporting experts in their businesses across many varying areas and through the ripple effect impacts on their clients. this is a great opportunity to understand more about Nicks ‘why and the importance of value and support.



Expert Empires was created from a desire to do something different and create value and support. If you want to serve, support and influence people the best way to do it is by example not by telling. Now people ask me how I’ve done things The podcast is a great medium to share content and very accessible to everyone As my businesses have progressed my vision has become bigger. I’m very good at strategizing and helping people in the expert space. I’m good at helping experts to make a difference and this means I’m indirectly reaching their clients through a ripple effect I had to work for an entrepreneurial company to learn how to run a company Money is not everything but can be used as a measure of value. If you have a seven-figure business you are reaching significant numbers of people It’s about supporting clients in the best possible way. In a well-rounded peer group you need to have mentors, people you aspire to be like, mentees because there is a duty to pass on the knowledge and expertise you have and people at the same level as you are currently. We have built something that is different from other Mastermind programs. It’s about having the opportunity to see what choices are available and learning to ask if that choice is serving you.



‘I felt the events industry had become sell, sell, sell and I wanted to do something different’

‘The best way to inspire is through example’

‘I love giving opportunities to people’

Nick dropped out of university at the age of 21 and failed spectacularly with his first coaching business, which forced him to take a £16k/yr telesales job. 

Within 12 months he was the top performer and left to start his second business at 24. This time he discovered a winning formula and before long had a multi-six-figure company.

He then made a huge mistake which nearly put him out of business and cost him £50,000 in personal cash!

Fortunately, Nick kept it afloat, turned it around, and sold that business 2 years later in a seven-figure deal. 

He then co-founded a multi-million-pound marketing company, which he exited in 2015, and created Expert Empires.

Today, Expert Empires is known as the UK's number one business event for Experts, with world-renowned celebrity speakers like Gary Vaynerchuk, Grant Cardone, Chalene Johnson, David Goggins, and Lewis Howes gracing the stage.

Nick also specialises in helping Coaches, Consultants, Speakers, Trainers, and Authors take their businesses from zero to six figures and beyond through his Expert Empires Mastermind programme.
