Sometimes you may need to alter and change a strategy to meet the target Having your company values clearly established and regularly reviewed by everyone in the team makes a huge difference to the environment you are working in There are lots of funding opportunities available for start ups Bring together all the information a potential funder might need, know how much you want and how it will be used Who you approach for funding is the most important aspect I don’t see anything I invest time in as a bad investment When a business partnership is coming to an end how clear you were about the expectations, responsibilities and commitment at the start will determine how easy it is at the end A good negotiation is one where each party is a bit dissatisfied My vision, the people in my team and my kids are what inspire me

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.
