    We'll also delve into the transformative journey from being a puddle to embodying the resilient vastness of an ocean, discussing practical mindfulness practices, the power of journaling, and the profound impact of wise counsel. Additionally, Dr. Mike will unfold the significance of defining our identity beyond social roles and navigating the unpredictable landscape of public perception.



    Join us as we unfold these mindful strategies that top athletes and successful professionals use to stay present, confident, and at the peak of their game. If you're ready to transform your mindset, let go of the fear of judgment, and embrace a life of mastery. Let’s get into this episode!

🔥

It’s obvious Nick puts extraordinary effort in covering salient topics and finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world - the insights they bring to bear are still mind-blowing every. single. time.

Awesome Podcast

So far I have listened to the John O’Leary episode and I have the Chris Voss episode up next. Nick and John both have awesome insight about perspective, mindset, and overall outlook on life. They also do a great job of applying these things to the customer experience. I plan to listen to Press 1 for Nick regularly and would recommend it to anyone!

ErycEyl ,

Smart and real

What I appreciate most about Nick's podcast is that he has authentic conversations with a wide variety of folks. It never feels like Q&A or guests reciting the same talking points they give everywhere, but like an honest conversation between peers about topics that are relevant to CX and customer service, but also have resonance well beyond those areas.
