04 Feb Nick Stephenson | From the Court Room to Crime Novels!
In this episode of the DREAM. THINK. DO. podcast Nick Stephenson, from a young barrister to owning a seven-figure business, shares his strategies on how to grow your audience and boost your influence.
It happens to a lot of us. You go to college to get a degree in something. But after you graduate… you quickly realize that you don’t actually want to work in THAT field for the rest of your life.
But what do you do?
That was Nick Stephenson’s story.
He went to school to be a barrister. (Yeah… he’s British.)
But he realized very quickly that being a lawyer was a bad fit!
There he was. School debt. A small family. Single income.
He didn’t seem to have a lot of options.
But… he decided to Dream.Think.Do.
That’s right. While he worked his full time job… “barristing” (yeah… I know that’s not a word), Nick started to write crime novels on the side. It took some time but he started to understand the game and he began to build a following.
Over the course of the past few years, Nick has written multiple best sellers and now has created his own seven-figure business. And it all started with some crime novels… he completed by simply writing 1,000 words a day.
In this episode, you will…
- Discover Nick’s strategy for having a successful “side-hustle” with a 8-5 commitment
- Learn the strategies Nick used to grow his audience and boost his influence
- Learn some of Nick’s strategies for winning at the Amazon game

I love this podcast! Nick shares his own success secrets and shares his life story and authentic experiences with his listeners. I already grew my audience after 1 podcast. I especially love how Mitch humbly dumbs it down for us “right brained” listeners and makes it tangible, accessible and my favorite part- FUNNY- I decided to play this while working,. and my background noise turned into a brainstorm sesh strategic marketing plan!
