But Nick Wasn’t always successful in business or in life… Actually at one point he was very far from it…

Growing up I never had much to worry about. Life was good. I played sports, hung out with a lot of friends, and just lived as a kid should. 

But at the age of 11,  My sister got sick, and everything in my life changed… When I was just 13 my sister lost her battle with cancer…

It was one of the hardest things I ever had to deal with in my life at that time…

 Growing up my sister was one of the people I looked up to.  She was a huge influence on me.

So her early death affected me pretty badly… Ill never forget the day it happened…

November 5th 2002 would be the start of a shift in my life I never thought I would experience.

At  15 I dropped out of school and started working for a local pet store…

I didn’t know it at the time but I was headed for a dark road. I started surrounding myself with a bad crowd. Not bad people, just people who made poor choices in life. 

Eventually I started making stupid decisions, I started abusing drugs, became reckless and careless…

By the time I was 18 I was a full blown drug addict, taking and doing anything I could get my hands on…

 I would end up quitting my job after 3 years  because I became more focused on the drugs than anything else…

This would actually lead me to the next stage in my life were I would find my next passion through music. I had just quit my job, Had nothing lined up… So Like a responsible adult. I bought a drum kit…

Now up until I turned 15 I was great at sports… And if you had asked me when I was a kid what would I be doing when I grew up it would have been playing soccer professionally…

But I knew the moment I dropped out of school, any dream of playing sports was over, and after my sister passed I became to distracted by drugs… my focus changed, and there really wasn’t anyone who could have pulled me out at that point…

Despite the struggles with addiction, I never lost my self motivation. There were definitely times were I would bounce off track, and lose sight, but eventually I would always come back around to focusing on what I want to accomplish.

And so I began my journey of playing music professionally. I spent countless hours, months, grinding morning, noon, and night, mastering the drums…

Unfortunately despite all the success and talent I had musically the drugs got the best of me. I was spiraling into a situation I didn’t want to be in. I was a full blown coke addict, taking excess amounts of pills, drinking, smoking doing anything else I could get my hands on… 

I barely remember the studio recording sessions, practices, shows or any of that. I was getting high from the moment I woke up, to the moment I went to bed… 

I have no clue how I functioned.

At the time it was really difficult to see how bad I was getting…  Sometimes I think back and wonder how I survived… 

I guess I just had a really high tolerance…

At one point I was doing more than 3.5 grams of cocaine a day. Taking more pills than I could count and drinking like a fish.

Whats crazy is… 

This went on for another 3+ years before I would wake up… 

I would finally have my true revelation. 

It was like everything in life had hit me at once… The partying, It stopped being fun, it stopped being exciting… It became a job. It became a struggle… It became something I didn’t enjoy anymore, I would look myself in the mirror and not recognize the person I was staring at… It became “ugly” and I was truly hitting rock bottom… For the first time I started to see the ugly truth, I realized that I if I didn’t make a change I was going to end up dead. And there was to many things in my life that were to important for me to throw it all away…

I didn’t want to hurt my family, and I wanted to be more, I wanted to do more, I knew I was better than this and didn’t want to throw away my life because of some poor decisions… 

So I decided to quit once and for all… And I did. At the age of 22 I quit doing drugs.  COLD turkey. I looked myself in the mirror I broke down and made a promise to myself I would never make the same mistakes again. I deleted all my contacts, disconnected from anyone who had associated me with drugs, or my past. I had to start fresh, and it was the only way I could ensure I would be successful…

But how did I end up here… It’s amazing how the universe can work absolute wonders in life when you can recognize & capitalize on opportunity. I’ll tell you this, you will never truly be “stuck” forever… You may be at your worst, or you may be at the bottom of the barrel, but where there is opportunity there is always a way out…

 Somewhere in the mix of all this I started working an overnight retail job. That’s when I would finally get my first real taste of the MLM industry…

I was hungry, and motivated, and wanted to make more money, I was working management within my organization but wasn’t happy with what I was doing, and knew that there was way to much limitation to build the type of lifestyle I want in retail or anything like that…

One night I’m pitched by a fellow coworker about an MLM opportunity… I got excited and decided to join… Well at the time the company was teaching there home meeting model. They wanted you to host home meetings so you could recruit 2 who could recruit 2 and so on. lol

I didn’t like that model very much…

 I knew that If I could figure out how to use the internet to promote the business I could get in front of thousands of people a day despite there model I was on a mission now to figure out how to get in front of a lot of people at once.. I knew you could only get in front of a maybe 5-10 people a day when you do home meetings…

So I went on my journey to find a way to get leads online… 

I would spend the next 8 months researching, learning, studying absolutely everything I could about marketing and sales… I literally would go days sleeping only an hour or 2 because I wanted to figure this stuff out so bad…

On top of it I was working 60 hrs+ a week overnight and from the moment I walked out of that door till the moment I walked back In I was working on figuring out the business… There were many days even while at my other job I was still working, studying, and listening to anything I could get my hands on… I didn’t care… I was done being average…

I eventually would end up making some money from the MLM program, but ultimately left because it didn’t align with what I wanted… 

It was during my research over the course of that 8 months I would come across what would be the biggest shift in my life yet… 

It was October of 2012 my life would change. That’s when I would find the first platform I would use to catapult my results. 

Within 90 days of launching the system I quit my full time job, took my family on a dream vacation to Hawaii, and started traveling the country… 

I quickly shot into success,  It was incredible…

For the first time i’m experience success on levels I had never experienced before. Making more money than I had ever made and getting to do thing I had never experienced.

But unfortunately that would be short lived…

Roughly 3 years later, the company I had built my entire business around had folded, closed up shop, and That meant ZERO income again… 

But this time bills are piling up fast… 

And I need a solution…

I spent many months scouring for the right company and product to build behind.  I tested a few new companies and unfortunately there was nothing that was dependable enough. There’s so much crap out there, companies shutting down left and right, people selling garbage products, scamming people, poor leadership… I had no interest in being apart of any of that.

 I was also concerned with having to deal with the same problems again…

So I decided to give eCommerce a try, and despite having some success, It ultimately became a failure… I hated dealing with all the customers,  constantly sourcing new products, the swings of the industry, small profit margins, dealing with amazon, shopify, etc… It just required to many moving parts and time with to small of a return in my opinion… 

So that’s when I turned to business consulting… I started working with entrepreneurs and business owners, privately to help them launch, grow, transform, and scale there businesses. 

It was a success…  I had picked up some clients and they were seeing improvements in their business… that’s when I realized there is something special here… 

But a few major problems…

 1. I was working almost 24/7 to get all my clients that I had the results they were looking for…

 2. What I was doing wasn’t really scale-able on my own. Meaning the only way I can duplicate my success is if I literally recreate people that can do what I do. That could take years of training, hiring, perfecting. So that meant I would need to design the right system to speed up the process… 

3. I couldn’t focus on building a system or scaling if I had to spend all my time with clients, which meant I would need to restructure the entire business or stop it in order to make scaling, or duplication possible.

Now I love working with businesses, entrepreneurs, and love what I do, but there needed to be a way to make it scale-able if i’m going to accomplish my mission…

Unsure of what I was going to do yet I decided to attend a private meeting in Las Vegas that cost me $10,000 just to get it in… I was going to meet with a media buyer for a promotion I was doing for a client…

Amazing how things happen and why these types of meetings can be so valuable…

 I meet someone who happen to have a pre-license real estate school. And they were looking for ways to structure and improve upon their business.  Well during our time there I showed him ways to implement a lucrative launch plan into his business, how to build an effective system, etc…

 Long story short they would eventually become clients of mine…

Crazy how things can turn out…

All my life I had wanted to get started in the real estate industry. I finally was getting that opportunity… I had never worked with a client in real estate so this was very exciting… Despite the fact that they worked in the pre-license sector I saw an opportunity to capitalize on …(Remember, See opportunity, capitalize and you will never truly be “stuck”) 

But what happened next was a universal sign for God…

 I got hacked… everything I had built up, my hosting accounts, websites, email lists, everything destroyed… the websites started going to penis pill sites, porn sites, foreign sites, majority of data was destroyed or corrupted…

It was an absolute shit show…

 So I made a tough decision. I shut it all down… I let all my clients go… Except one… my real estate clients… I bought out any existing contracts I had, canceled any new contracts, took a major hit and walked away… 

But I was FREE…  

And this time I could do it right… 

Only thing is I had just let 98% of my income go. Im still sitting on a high debt sheet, So it was now an ALL OR NOTHING situation. That meant I had to make this work. No Plan B…

 I would spend the majority of my time over the next 2-4 years studying everything I could about the real estate industry as a whole, the people, the processes, the way things flow, both as an agent and an investor…

And before you knew it I had built up a wealth of knowledge…

But what I saw during my time doing research, studying and learning really pained me… So many agents who were coming through to get there licenses were still struggling. I saw a huge problem in the industry with so many people failing simply because they didn’t understand the sales or business side of it all…

I decided we needed to make a change…

 Most people come in thinking it’s a job and not a business. Unfortunately they find out quickly that they are still business  owners and that they need to act as if its a business or else they have little to no chance of long term survival… 

Knowing that it is my purpose, my duty, my mission to help the average person get out of the day to day struggle and recognize there greater purpose. To help people obtain the knowledge, skills tools, resources, and connections to things they need to make a difference in there lives and others. To teach people how to build wealth and live the most fulfilled life possible… To impact, touch, inspire, and transform the lives of as many people as I can in my lifetime…

Knowing we can help millions of people together…

 I decided to form a partnership… 

With my vision, experience in building businesses, marketing, and sales systems, the absolute wealth of knowledge and experience I gained in real estate along with my new partner growing up in the real estate industry, his resources, knowledge, and skills we have the makings of something truly special.

So we launched our coaching program LegendaryAgent.com.

Agents that want to properly structure there business using effective systems, and tools, along with a coach to hold them by the hand and get them were they want to go in business and life. You increase your chances of success by more than 87% by having a coach… 

But that wasn’t enough.

 Among many of these people who would come to get there license most of them wanted to be investors… And a lot of them only got there license because they either believed they needed it in order to become a real estate investor or wanted it for MLS access… 

But There’s a MASSIVE problem with the industry…

I know on average 91% of all real estate investors will fail. 83% of real estate investors will fail within their first year of being an investor. 53% will not sell or wholesale more than 1 property in there career…

The thing is, I didn’t want to be like all the other fake “gurus” out there. I wanted to be in the trenches producing real results. This way we could show our clients and students how to duplicate our results by giving them our exact systems and strategies we use.

There’s so much garbage, and hype, and fake gurus out there pretending to get results, I wanted to make sure we were nothing like the others and that we could truly help our others succeed while setting a new standard in the industry.

 So I launch United Property Buyers… 

And shockingly within our first 3 calls we got our first property under contract, and within a week or so later we made our first $23,500. 

That’s when we said this is going to be something amazing. Less than 7 months later we are already producing over $100,000 a month…

 Some would say it was destiny or a calling… 

Which leads to Legendary Investors Group… 

I wanted to build an exclusive community of elite entrepreneurs who provide education & build wealth through real estate investing.

So I designed a unique one of a kind platform for entrepreneurs & real estate Investors.  We help average ordinary people build successful real estate investment businesses using some of the most cutting edge, knowledge, tools, and resources in the industry while removing as much of the stress and overwhelm as possible.

So many people are struggling to make it to get started or succeed in the investment industry, but it doesn’t have to be that way… I believe that anyone can be a successful investor but they need to know how to do it right…

Legendary Investors Group is revolutionizing, raising the bar, and setting anew standard for the way real estate investment education should be… Were sick of all the garbage and hype out there..

So were focused on providing the best cutting edge knowledge,  tools, resources, you need to succeed in this industry.

You see I’m living my dream, Living life the way I want to, traveling when I want, doing what I want, when I want, Heck I full filled another childhood dream and went to the Superbowl to watch my favorite team win another super bowl championship!

I’m doing the things I set out to do. But most of you are not… And that’s something I want to change…
