MY STORY:

Navigating to find a better way…

Hi, I’m Nick. 👋

Before we get too far into this… yes, my given name is Nicholas.

But usually when someone calls me that my ears perk up because I’m usually in trouble (thanks Mom 😂).

Anyways… back to it.

Throughout my life, I have always tried to find the most efficient path to my desired destination.

Don’t confuse this with the laziest or quickest path…

But the path that allows me to optimize the one finite thing we cannot get more of: TIME

A SNAPSHOT OF MY LIFE

Personal accomplishments are as important (I might argue even more important) than professional achievements.

I try to integrate the two with one another as I continue down this journey of life…

Now, most of these things are ‘highlights’ of my journey so far… but everything isn’t always sunshine and sprinkle cupcakes.

Feel free to read beyond the snapshot into my story from the first time I was laid off to past failed business ventures…
