“We all desire more for our lives, whether in business, leadership, marriage, relationships or service. Nick Kennedy’s book provides a great path to all of these. He does so by broadening the definition of entrepreneur to include anyone who is willing to have the courage to take the right risks. Nick provides clear principles and applications to get you focused and moving, along with a wealth of engaging stories to drive home his points. A highlight is Nick’s personal vulnerability and transparency about his own life, which makes the reader trust his words. Highly recommended!”

Here’s the problem:

Your systems are designed to get you the results you are getting. And most systems are broken if they exist at all.

There’s a better way to help you have clarity, gain focus, and breakthrough to create the life you want.

In the LifeOS course, I share a simple three-step plan that I use personally to create a system to get your desired results. Once you’ve learned the system, you can download my Notion template and use it to customize your own LifeOS.

In this course, you’ll get:

  • 8 lessons with instant access inside your online members area
  • An understanding of human psychology behind why we do what we do and how to address that head-on
  • Personal lessons from building and selling businesses and over 5,000 hours of coaching leaders
  • The exact system I used to take my one-person coaching practice from $0 in revenue to $1 million
  • A cloned version of my entire Operating System so you can build your own
  • Bonus: Lifetime access allows you to go through the program as often as you need

You can achieve your desired growth without burning out when you get clarity in your professional and personal life.

If you have questions about your future and the legacy you are building, this is for you.
