Nik worked hard to get where he is today. He commented, ”Building a successful entrepreneurial empire requires dedication, focus and patience. Now I aim to help other entrepreneurs scale their businesses and live their dreams as I did.” 

Nick graduated from Queen’s University with a degree in Engineering Physics with a focus on lasers and quantum mechanics. In a door-to-door sales job, Nick was the top producer out of a team of 400 within a month. After college, he started a door-to-door auto detailing business and sold it two years later. His next venture was the creation of, where Nick scaled up from zero revenue to eight figures in less than three years

The unique thing here is that this success was not financed by loans or venture capital. He created in his apartment by himself with a laptop and a headset and zero outside funding. He got to his first million in sales with only one commission-based employee in only six months. From there, he never looked back.
