    15 Minutes To Action - What Running Ultra Marathons Has Taught Me About Building Resilience

    15 Minutes To Action - What Running Ultra Marathons Has Taught Me About Building Resilience

    Toughness and resilience are attributes we all need right now, but many believe that they can only be attained through long periods of failure or setbacks.

    Nick’s here this week to smash that thinking, with a special insight into how he prepares for the physical trials of marathon running, and how you can take the empowering lessons he’s learned, in order to build up your resilience reserves today!

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    If you want to grow, and to become the best version of yourself that you can be, you need to set tasks or challenges for yourself that feel impossible.
    By allowing ourselves to see our goals long term, and by developing the ability to look as far ahead as possible, we come to realise that any current challenges are merely moments, and will pass.
    The best way to overcome a fear is to face that fear. The best way to grow is push through a barrier, because if you do, your strength and resolve will expand exponentially.
    Meditation helps us to experience the moment. It is the practice of tapping into the layers of our brain, our psychology, and our emotions, and being able to call upon those things when it matters.

     

    BEST MOMENTS 

    ‘Living life on your own terms is the key’

    ‘In life, everything is about growth and contribution’

    ‘If you want to build resistance, you first have to change the narrative’

    ‘You’ve got to feel the fear and do it anyway’

    Building a Winning Culture - With JT McCormick, President & CEO of Scribe Media, Ranked #1 Top Company Culture in America by Entrepreneur Magazine

    Building a Winning Culture - With JT McCormick, President & CEO of Scribe Media, Ranked #1 Top Company Culture in America by Entrepreneur Magazine

    Nick’s special guest this week is JT McCormick, the CEO Of Scribe Media, ranked #1 in Top Company Culture In America by Entrepreneur Magazine!

    There’s no one in the world more qualified (officially) to tell you how, and why, you should be building a world-beating culture in your business today.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 
    Challenges and barriers in early life were taken not as roadblocks, but as lessons that helped JT to grow stronger. Sometimes the things that beat us down make us more determined.
    JT has always led by three principles: People, processes, profits. Good people will swiftly enable the following two principles. 
    We need to be constantly questioning everything. Those who inquire, discover. There’s no such thing as a stupid question. 
    There’s no such thing as failure. You only fail when you stop trying. The goal is to learn, not-repeat, and grow from the mistakes. 
    Great companies are never built by one person. They are the cumulative product of the collaborative efforts of great people.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ’That chaos has actually helped me in business’

    ‘With great people we can build great processes and make great profits’

    ‘I never want to be the smartest person in the room’

    ‘You only fail if you stop trying’

    15 Mins To Action - 7 Things I'm Doing In My Businesses Right Now

    15 Mins To Action - 7 Things I'm Doing In My Businesses Right Now

    In this week’s 15 Minutes To Action, Nick shares the seven things he’s currently implementing in his own businesses, in order to give himself, his employees, his customers and suppliers, the best opportunities for growth and scale once life begins to crank back into action in the coming weeks and months.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Stopping to think about every decision will give you a greater perspective on outcomes. We need to consider how different the world is going to be, and how each decision will play out in that world.
    Most people have now recognised the importance of having cash in the business. It has now become one of the most important and recognised factors in the failure of businesses.
    There are people out there who have gone through similar economic experiences before. Don’t be afraid to reach out and talk to those who know how to survive.
    It’s time to be brave. Test and trial the solutions, systems and processes that you’ve always wanted. You might find the next great growth accelerator.
    The more you can work on yourself right now, the more you’ll be enhancing what is sure to be a key part of how you lead, show up, and take action in the future.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ’Things will slingshot back once people start to feel some confidence again’

    ’Gratitude is the antidote to fear'

    ’The worst thing you can do is stay in your own head’

    ’The quality of life is the quality of how you manage your decisions and emotions'

    Entrepreneur In Focus: Gaurav Sinha: Best-Selling Author Of Compassion Inc. - Unleashing The Power of Empathy in Life & Business

    Entrepreneur In Focus: Gaurav Sinha: Best-Selling Author Of Compassion Inc. - Unleashing The Power of Empathy in Life & Business

    The fabulous ‘Entrepreneur In Focus’ series continues as I meet with Gaurav Sinha, author of ‘Compassion Inc - Unleashing The Power Of Empathy In Life And Business’.

    Gaurav has become one of the world’s most respected entrepreneurs and anthropologists, working at the intersection of strategy and storytelling in order to help brands resonate and develop with distinction.

    In this week’s show, Gaurav discusses his incredible journey, the importance of self-belief, and the philosophies that can help you achieve your scale-up goals ... in business and in life!

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Always look for a great boss; never look for a great job. A true leader can help you to realise the shape of your journey at the outset.
    At the outset of any entrepreneurial journey, revenue is king. Hustle all you can to put food on the table and aim for the small wins that elevate you each time.
    You always need people in order to climb higher. The key to keeping those people is to create a culture of collaboration in a transactional world.
    Altruism in brands has become far too scarce. It’s not about profit, it’s about prosperity. It’s not about shareholder value, but working with holders of shared values.
    A great business requires three things: the idea, the operations, and the money. Simplicity is the key to long-term success and most importantly, happiness.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ’The word “more” has been hijacked’

    ’Stars don’t work for idiots. They work for other stars’

    ‘Insatiable curiosity is part of my DNA’

    ‘Momentum is more important than direction’

    15mins to Action - How To Stop Procrastination

    15mins to Action - How To Stop Procrastination

    Nothing can hamper your ability to take action more than procrastination, the enemy of productivity.

     

    In this week’s special episode, Nick talks you through the ways in which you can stop stalling and start stepping up!

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS

     
    Procrastination is the force by which we are attracted to instant gratification, instead of our long-term goals.
    Instant gratification is more alluring to our present selves, as we can see the benefit immediately. By moving the future rewards closer to our present, we can better focus on, and achieve them.
    The best way to beat the feeling of procrastination is by starting the work itself. Even incremental acts can begin momentum that will drive us forward.
    Temptation bundling, or the act of linking an activity that takes work with one that gives us pleasure, can increase productivity and prevent procrastination.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

     

    ‘Present self has the ability to take action, but future self has the ability to set goals’

    ‘You make your future consequences become your present consequences’

    ’The problem is not doing the work, but starting the work’

    ’The key to procrastination is consistency'

    The Return of Kev Blackburn! The Life Success Engineer, with a Multi-Million Pound Amazon Arbitrage Empire

    The Return of Kev Blackburn! The Life Success Engineer, with a Multi-Million Pound Amazon Arbitrage Empire

    It’s a return engagement for Kev Blackburn, the life success engineer who created a multi-million-pound arbitrage empire through Amazon!

    Kev is the perfect example of someone who took a dream and turned it into a reality, spurred on only by his willpower, and through setting effective goals.

    In this week’s show, Kev discusses how you can turn your side hustle into a full-time gig, and talks you through an abundance of ideas that’ll get your imaginations firing on all cylinders, so that you can face the return to normality with newfound vigour!

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Striking out on your own is scary, but it’s also a gift. Being in control of your own destiny is invaluable.
    The first step in going it alone is to work out what your ideal life looks like. Only by doing so can we see the path that takes us there.
    Systems and processes are the building blocks of every successful enterprise. By installing effective systems, we level-up its ability to run more autonomously.
    The journey of building a business requires a huge amount of sacrifice, and will ultimately impact your personal life. The best way of ensuring the damage remains minimal is to involve our loved ones whenever possible.
    The greatest thing about technology is that we can now reach those who need our help and our stories in order to empower them to persevere with their own dreams.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘If anything’s going to give you a reason to control your destiny, then this is it’

    ‘Buying and selling is simple, but so exciting!’

    ‘I don’t like guessing and I don’t like gambling. It’s all about limiting risk’

    ’The desire, the motivation and the energy; the only way we attain them is by recognising what’s important to you’

    ‘You are creating your own story. The time to act is now'
