Empire Builders Revisited: The 6 Most Valuable Tasks For Empire Builders

Empire Builders Revisited: The 6 Most Valuable Tasks For Empire Builders

By Nick James

In this show, we revisit one of the earlier episodes, designed to help you understand the value of tasks

Nick explains his philosophy around the 3 levels of prioritisation for tasks in your business and in life.

You will always be working towards achieving the right balance for tasks but this episode is a great way to understand the value of tasks and how to prioritise them to ensure you are not only spending the right amount of time on the tasks that will bring the most value to your business but actually have the time to do it.

All tasks are important but understanding the 3 levels are the tasks that bring the most value is a game-changer for anyone building an empire.



The £1000+ tasks are strategic, require the most skill and are those which bring the highest value to your business. Time invested in your health and wellbeing has the greatest potential to impact on your business and life. Preparation and planning strategically is a high-value area to invest your time in. Growing and maintaining relationships and partnerships, including joint ventures is key. A single business relationship can result in huge profits. Create content and repurpose it to extend your reach and impact. Time spent with your family is critical, your business is an investment in your family’s future and a driver for you to continue to move forward. Investing in learning, personal development and growth is critical to you being the best empire builder you can be.



‘I’ve become more effective with my time and have created more time to do things’

‘You have to earn the right to only have the £1000 tasks to complete’

‘Understand the difference between tasks and how you distribute your time between them’

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.
