Open and Real, Q&A with Nick James

By Nick James

In this Q and A Nick looks forward to the future discussing both business and personal possibilities

He discusses his previous business partnership and the positive outcomes  and lessons learnt from being a part of it and also candidly answers the question of what drains him the most and how he recovers and finds the solutions to move forward



I don’t see Expert Empires going beyond 1,000 attendees because I don’t want to lose the intimacy of the event My kids attend the Expert Empires events and experience what I do and are exposed to all the speakers You have to be an example and provide opportunities as a parent without the push It was very painful, for me, because I had created a link between my identity, self-worth and being the co-owner of the company The lessons I took away were about making smarter decisions based on more than just pursuing additional revenue Being the sole CEO of Expert Empires means I’m empowered to take more responsibility The more specialised and niche the coaching and mentoring the more you can get from it If something isn’t the way I want, I ask myself how have I created this? which stimulates me to come up with a solution



‘My kids have been surrounded by the personal development world from a very young age’

I’ve built the team here based on the best bits of the previous business which had a great culture’

‘My happiness and self-worth are now independent of the business’

Nick James

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.
