Episode 70: Nick Prefontaine

When Nick woke up after three weeks in a coma, he had no idea what the path forward would look like. With persistence, a positive mindset, and the support of his parents, he made an incredible recovery. These days, he uses that same process to help his clients unlock their limitless potential. His story is proof positive that you don’t need to know the entire plan… just have the courage to take the next step. Listen now. 

Can’t-Miss Moments From This Episode:

  • Let’s talk curse of knowledge: turns out that thing you do every day like it’s no big deal… actually IS a big deal (hint: value does NOT equal hours worked).  
  • Trying something new? Warning: It’s not going to be pretty but that’s ok! Nick reveals why that’s not only perfectly normal, but why it kicks all kinds of ass to be “less than perfect”. 
  • The difference between talent and skill, and why so many incredibly talented people wind up broke, stuck and frustrated (and bonus! Even if you don’t have a natural talent, here’s something you can still do to get way farther than you might think possible). 
  • Is your support squad shitting all over your dreams? Nick and I break down what to do when your friends and family deliver well-intentioned but flawed “help” in the form of “but what happens when [INSERT WORST CASE SCENARIO HERE] happens?”  
  • Newsflash: my first attempt at freelancing was a big ol’ failure (with a capital F). Check out what I did to ensure my second attempt went a lot better… 

This one is jam-packed full of advice. Don’t miss out – listen now!
