Personal Development a Continuing Journey

Personal Development a Continuing Journey

By Nick James

In this episode Nick’s returning guest is Nikki Vee, his Mum, they discuss how Nikki moved from a corporate environment to coaching in personal development and how Nick's experiences growing up shaped his learning about the foundational and important skills around coaching and communicating with people
They also discuss the huge importance of understanding that any personal development journey is an ongoing process that reflects investing in yourself and continuing to learn

A plan doesn’t necessarily mean success but it does bring different thinking I had a massive advantage because I’d spent time with amazing people in incredible environments You are a product of the environments and the people you are around Even though I had learnt so much my focus was still around making money and reaching targets Becoming a coach was the point at which I found the benefit in service to others, giving my time to be there and support other people in their journey of personal development Personal development is about understanding the deepest fears within you It’s realising what's holding you back and what you are carrying from past significant emotional events and then understanding what to do moving forward Your personal development journey is a continuing process and you need to invest in your learning and understanding as an ongoing commitment The most important thing you can do in leading other people and as a parent is to go first It’s an openness to allowing the past to unfold whilst planning with patience for the future When we have our eyes wide open there is so much more that can be experienced Be open to what you don’t know

‘I’m interested in why people do what they do’
‘Telling people what they should do is different to doing it first and leading others’
‘I learned what it took to organise and run a world-class event’

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 seven figures and beyond through his Expert Empires Mastermind programme.
