Audacious coaching

for courageous leaders

Helping high-growth leaders create a life that matters.

Learn from a business coach who’s been there, done that.

Successful leaders and entrepreneurs like you don't need another yes-man, you need someone who will give honest feedback, a plan to execute, and the encouragement to keep moving when all seems lost.

I’ve been in your shoes.

When I started an airline called RISE and sold it for tens of millions, I didn’t have a mentor to guide me through the high stakes of entrepreneurship and the low valleys with relationships and mental health.

You can't have it all, but you can have what is important.

After I almost lost everything that mattered, I learned that you don't have to sacrifice what is important to be successful in business. These lessons led me to become EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year, to write The Good Entrepreneur, and to begin the journey of becoming the best business coach in the world.

Why work with Nick as a business and life coach?

You'll get access to the wisdom of someone who has been through it all before, so you can avoid unnecessary mistakes, execute on what matters, and succeed faster than you would by yourself.

These convictions guide my coaching.

  • It’s never not about profit. (But it’s about so much more.)

  • Walking alone in life is more dangerous than we realize; we need people who are behind us, beside us, and ahead of us.

  • Being successful isn’t about conquering the world; it’s about conquering yourself.

  • Yes-men (and women) are a dime a dozen; people who’ll tell you the truth are priceless.

  • More, as most people understand it, will never be enough.

  • The mind is the cruelest mistress, until you teach it to be your beloved best friend.

  • Creating personal first principles makes every decision easy.
