Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
Empire Builders with Nick James
In this powerful and inspiring episode, Tom Bilyeu shares why it doesn’t matter who you are today it’s ultimately about who you want to be and the price you are willing to pay that matters. If you want to be in control of your life then there is a path from where you are today to where you want to be tomorrow and you can cross the chasm if you have the right mindset and are prepared to put in the time and energy. This is an episode that will inspire because it’s about being changing your brain to believing you can and then making it happen whoever you are and whatever others believe about you. KEY TAKEAWAYS Radically changing your mindset will alter your behaviour, change the things you do, change the way you learn and the path you go down achieving the things others can’t do. You acquire a skill because you want to be able to do something. Whatever you want to do you can acquire the skill needed but you have to be prepared to pay an extraordinary price. Being a hopelessly average human being means you are the ultimate adaptation machine and your life will be a series of tests to find out much resolve you have to get great. We have an evolutionary strategy that is about being the ultimate adaptation and learning machine. If you want to be an entrepreneur your job is changing your brain to believing you can do it The only belief that matters is that you can get better and if you put the time and energy into it you will get better. You can get good enough that your destiny is in your control and you need to believe in what you are fighting for. We wanted to build a company with value, passion and solve problems that others said were unsolvable. We had a blinding belief that we could learn anything and fulfil our vision. If you don’t have the right mindset and beliefs, values and identity in place you will never escape because you don’t have the belief that matters that you can get better. It doesn’t matter who you are today what matters is who you want to become and the price you are willing to pay. No matter what people think about you, no matter how many people have doubted you it is your path to walk. It isn’t going to be easy but eventually, you will get so good you can’t be ignored.

Within 12 months he was the top performer and left to start his second business at 24. This time he discovered a winning formula and before long had a multi-six-figure company. He then made a huge mistake which nearly put him out of business and cost him £50,000 in personal cash! Fortunately, Nick kept it afloat, turned it around, and sold that business 2 years later in a seven-figure deal. He then co-founded a multi-million-pound marketing company, which he exited in 2015, and created Expert Empires. Today, Expert Empires is known as the UK's number one business event for Experts, with world-renowned celebrity speakers like Gary Vaynerchuk, Grant Cardone, Chalene Johnson, David Goggins, and Lewis Howes gracing the stage. Nick also specialises in helping Coaches, Consultants, Speakers, Trainers, and Authors take their businesses from zero to six figures and beyond through his Expert Empires Mastermind programme.
