Audacious coaching

for courageous leaders

Nick helps high-performing executives and emerging leaders optimize their outcomes and achieve exponential growth by showing them what they cannot see by themselves

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

Successful leaders and entrepreneurs like you need someone who will give them honest, hard truths and the everyday skills to navigate the challenges of running a business and caring for the people who matter.

I’ve been in your shoes.

When I started an airline called RISE and when I sold it for millions, I didn’t have a mentor to guide me through the high stakes of entrepreneurship and the low valleys with family and relationships. And after I almost lost everything that mattered, including my marriage, I learned that relationships are more important than any business venture. These lessons led me to become EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year and to write my book The Good Entrepreneur.

Now I’m ready to help you through individual coaching, group coaching, and online courses to give you the practical tools to build your business—and your life.

Why work with Nick as a business coach?

There’s a lot at stake.

You need coaching that actually works.

  • Optimize revenue and cash flow
  • Adopt a strategic growth mindset
  • Lead and manage change in your organization
  • Focus your time on the right tasks
  • Identify and track key metrics
  • Improve communication and negotiation skills
  • Navigate uncertainty with confidence
  • Find and keep talented team members
  • Respond well when plans change

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.
