The 2018 30 Challenge. | #1

This will be the first of 30 posts, a challenge set by myself to ensure I attempt at least a small amount of writing coming into the end of the year.

The idea is to improve how I articulate my thoughts and take a risk by bringing as much truth as I can muster to each topic I write about. While hopefully, saving others some time by discussing the mistakes I made.

So, with that said, Let’s begin.

If you were to ask people what I do you would probably get varying answers, some would say, Entrepreneur, others would say I’m an Actor, none would say ‘Writer’, and most would say, Salesman. While I hope a few would say a Leader.

I grew up with the mentality that ”I will try every facet of life, even the bad.” This leads me to try, fail and suck at more things that I wish to mention. Taking me around the world, facing planting along the way and leading me to experience the thrill that comes with creating something and seeing it come to life. Whether it fails or succeeds is a different question.

So, This is me…

My Name is Nick, I am 25, I work for a start-up company. I live in LA where I head up our USA Sales operations.

I love building content, from writing a book to acting in short films, web series(s) and even a couple of indie feature films launching later this year. It doesn’t matter if it is a business strategy, a book, screenplays, a sales process or marketing and product development, I truly just want to create. Well… no, I just want to tell stories.

I did a short stint in the military, studied business, marketing, accounting, economics, and journalism at university… none of which I finished.

I have worked on Oil rigs around the world from the Northern Seas of Europe to Jungles in Asia and sweated it up in the outback of Australia.

I have worked in bars, stripped for money (although I am a terrible dancer), I’ve been a lifeguard, attempted website developer, and failed athlete. On top of many other things.

I am now at the point in my life where I have tried a few things, seen a few things and experienced a few things. Which turned me into a constant student, a jack of all trades and a master of none.

Wanting to attempt to go deeper on a select few skill sets, something I to put off for far too long.

But where to start?… A self-indulging blog of course.

I am Nick and this is just another attempt to become a creator, a builder, a producer…. a storyteller.
