My mission is simple: To help 1,000,000 people stop settling, struggling and suffering in lives, relationships and careers that no longer inspire them. Think about all of the things that suffer when we’re unfulfilled: Our physical health. Our relationships. Our confidence. Our self-worth. Our mental health. It’s hard to think of anything that stays the same, let alone improves, when we go through life in a survive vs thrive mode. Transform U will help you transform into the person you were always meant to be so that you can live and work on your own terms. #NeverSettle

Inspiring and realistic
I listened to one of the early episodes where the host interviewed Chris Dorris and I found it very helpful. Informative and entertaining, the interview stayed on track and provided a lot of great tips. Knowing when to start a new business when you already have a job/business requires a lot of planning and, as the guest says, mental toughness, so it’s great to have shows like this out there to help navigate murky waters. Long story short, it’s good, listen to it!
Smart strategies for Work-Life Balance
Nick clearly loves sharing tips and strategies to help people in business. He does his research on guests, and asks smart questions to get some amazing advice from them.
I enjoyed the interview with Grant Baldwin on Balancing Work and Family While Excelling in Your Career.
I really liked the strategy shared for prioritizing your time and the guest's recommendation to do a 90-day goals plan, and then breaking it down by week to achieve them.
I enjoyed the rapid fire part of the podcast - what a fun way to wrap things up and get some spontaneous responses from the guest.
Great format and execution
I'm a fan of these type of long form interview shows, and they can be a lot harder to pull off than it seems. The host does a fantastic job, especially impressive since it seems like he's just a few episodes in at the time of this review. The interview with Morgan Field in particular was filled with great information and ideas. (I'm already diving deeper into.het business and her work.) Nick does a great job of setting her up with good questions, and then giving her center stage. I also appreciate the detailed show notes. Looking forward to listening to more...
