Interview with Nick James on the "Coal Face Stories" Podcast

By Nick James

Nick shares great content on the ‘Coalface Stories’ podcast providing an insight into his routines and what his superpowers are along with how he has built Expert Empires.

He explains what’s important when you are creating a business and discusses personal development and the role it can play in having perspective and increasing the speed with which you can scale your business.

He also talks about the changes he made to move Expert Empires onto the next level, getting clear on the vision through truly understanding the purpose, mission and values.



My superpower is building relationships, rapport and being able to find a connection When you start to experience success finding the time to get everything done is one of the greatest challenges I’ve been around the personal development arena since I was a kid so having Tony Robbins to dinner would be really cool Expert Empires was inspired by wanting to serve create value and provide great content I knew it was a good idea because my competitors told me it was a bad idea so I knew it was going to disrupt them and make a difference in the UK It was about a world-class experience with good content and value When you’re starting out you have to find something to specialise in and own that space in the market. Initially, I was providing a service for money and then began providing events and running Masterminds Building the team and creating opportunities for people to work in a great environment and develop personally is what has been really important When you start out you need to find an area to be a specialist in and be prepared to work with your network and contacts More than anything sales are what’s important and knowing how to close successfully I’ve always invested in personal development and it can speed your business growth



‘The superpower I’d like most would be the ability to stop time so I could get more done’

‘You don’t want to go to an event and be the smartest person in the room’

‘You have to get clear on what you want to do’

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.
