Episode #11: Simple Guidance From Nicolas Cole On How You Can Become Good At Anything

One of the topics I’ve always been fascinated by is how we cultivate excellence in our life.  My next guest, Nicolas Cole, has cracked the code on how we can become good at almost anything.

As a teenager, he became one of the highest ranked World of Warcraft players in the world and cultivated a massive, devoted following online.  Nicolas’ subsequent pursuits of excellence included bodybuilding, writing, and entrepreneurship.  He became a 3x Top Writer on Quora, a columnist for Inc magazine and recently launched his own agency, Digital Press.   Through each of these experiences, he’s learned and refined the habits and insights of becoming successful.

If you want to learn his secrets of success, the habits and practices to maximize your personal development, then don’t miss this conversation with Nicolas.  I promise you won’t regret it and you’ll discover several key habits and practices you can adopt today to help you become successful and boost your personal development.
