A Note From Nick


“Growing up, my environment was chaotic. As a kid, there was a lot of change early on – I was constantly moving towns, changing homes and building new friendships. My family endured the closure of my parents’ business and the breakdown of their marriage. I often worked 40 hour weeks, on top of my schooling, to help pay for our basic living expenses.


“As an adult, I had three young children born within the space of two years, including twins, one of whom was born with a heart defect. Whilst managing the health of our baby girl, I was running a business, developing supplier relationships, managing staff, building growth and keeping customers happy.

“A few short years prior I had lost my best friend and business partner to a tragic motor racing accident.

“All of these things were happening in the background, whilst growing a multi-million dollar company and keeping my head above water. In business, you are forced to adapt to your surroundings. I learnt to stay afloat in a storm, embrace the wave and not only survive, but thrive.


As more and more people were looking to me for advice – my staff, customers, suppliers, friends and family – it struck me that I’d had achieved immense success in the area of business, money and investing. I realised that so many people needed help in these areas. It became my mission to improve the lives of business owners, by revolutionising the way people prepare for business ownership and how they run their companies.

So, I wrote a book about it, called Better Business Better Life, with all my secrets to success neatly compiled in its pages.

I thrived on helping others succeed; in lifting them to fulfil their purpose.

Yet, there was something inside me that I couldn’t shake. I couldn’t ignore this feeling that there had to be more I could give. The difficulty was in dividing my time across so many business owners who needed help.


So I teamed up with friend, business woman, and education guru, Joanne Brooks. Together we developed an incredible series of online short courses that allow you to ignite your business.

People go into business for all different reasons, but the one thing they have in common is that they want it to be profitable. We’ve discovered the ingredients to make that happen. I’ve mentored hundreds of students but each business owner is unique. Unlocking their potential is what drives me.

Success is such a subjective term. For me, it’s always been about aligning my purpose and passion with business systems that produce outcomes. This secret formula allows me to live a life of freedom. With success comes the capacity to give back to the people close to you and the community at large. You also have the ability to reinvest into other businesses and passions, and work towards achieving your goals. You’re free to live an actively rewarding life. People think money is an ugly word, but the truth is, it’s not about money at all – it’s about the life you are able to live. You’re willing and enthusiastic to turn up to ‘work’ everyday. In a word, success is freedom.

Entrepreneurs with drive and passion are going to change the world. Are you one of them?”
