Failure is part of business. Failure is something that all of us have faced. Even the millionaires and billionaires of our society have encountered failure.Today, we talk with Nick Unsworth who shared how he overcame eleven failures before he found success.
Think about that for a second. Eleven times Nick had to face not being right and losing tons of money. But the key here is how he kept going. In short, it was his inner belief that he could do it. Nick talks about mindset and the amazing mentors in his life to help him find the right steps to real success.
Nick’s Target Audience: Nick’s target market is entrepreneurs who want to live their dream doing what they love. He especially likes to work with people who are building an online brand.
Nick considers himself a guy who wasn’t born with special talents or marketing abilities. At the start of his entrepreneurial ventures, he wasn’t always successful. In fact, Nick counts 11 business failures before he finally made it!
And what got him through those failures was a dream he had had since he was small: the dream of loving his work and having financial and time freedom. With 11 failures under his belt, you can imagine his journey was filled with a lot of hardships. But his strong inner beliefs and his relentless pursuit eventually generated what his successful career path today.
In this episode, Nick talks about his experiences with near bankruptcies and how he set his mind to get past the challenges that life presented him. He learned a lot from his failures and always found the silver linings in them.
He also discusses the importance of being aware of our feelings, emotions and thoughts, and how that awareness is necessary to develop techniques to change our mindset and allow us to work from a place he refers to as “our creative zone of genius”.
Nick describes this state as a place where you are efficient, productive and profitable. How will you know if you’re in this state? If you’re operating with energy and passion, you can go to bed with a feeling of achievement and accomlishment!
Nick also talks about his history of unsuccessful partnerships and how they led to so many of his business failures. He shares the harsh role bad decisions played in those failures as well.
We also discuss the risks he took along the way, how mentorships have helped him achieve breakthroughs and the valuable lessons he’s discovered by consuming course material from his favorite gurus.
One final important component of his success we dive into is his ability to build powerful networks by attending events and conferences…all things you can do for your business!
