Vertucci is also passionate about writing. He is the author of the bestselling book titled Seven Figure Decisions: Having The Balls to Succeed. Nick is a practical example of a person who has climbed the ladder from grass to grace.
In an interview with Podcast Nick highlights his rather interesting and also encouraging life history. Nick from the very beginning knew he was not an academic person. Nick found it difficult waking up early and going to school. His grades at school were also not encouraging. Nick lost his father at the tender age of 18. Things became very difficult for Nick and his siblings because they had lost the breadwinner of the family. Nick recalls his dad’s demise as the lowest point in his life. After the death of his dad, Nick started working in an appliance store first as a delivery boy and later as a salesperson.
Nick was passionate about starting his own business. He left the sales and marketing job at the appliance store and began selling computer accessories. His business flourished until it came to an abrupt end in the year 2000 as a result of the dotcom crash. Vertucci did not lose hope and by the age of 22 he was able to start his own real estate investment business. Nick founded Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy and has invested heavily in the real estate sector.
Vertucci advice to would-be entrepreneurs is that they should always take calculated risks. People should never be too comfortable where they are instead they should embrace change. Also, if an individual wants to succeed in business or progress in career, he or she should be able to first initiate action from within creating opportunities that will open doors. Do not wait to be pushed around or let other people make decisions for you. Always take risks, do not be afraid to make mistakes and surround yourself with like-minded people.
