“Lead intentionally so others can catch their spark.” — Nicholas A. Hanley
What inspired you to become a business owner?
Nicholas: As a New York native, I was surrounded by motivated individuals who shared the same vision, to take chances and think creatively. I wanted to share my passion and create a business framework and show others how to make a living from it. I connected with people from all walks of life, where I taught them how to navigate social media platforms and grow their own businesses. Seeing the impact I was making on people’s lives, inspired me to take my God-given abilities and become a business owner. In addition, this is my way of honoring my mother, who had sacrificed so much to support our family. It is my aspiration to retire my mother from nursing as a Registered Nurse through the fruits of my labor, so she can pursue her goals. I want to give back to my community and support those who have supported me, which will ensure my mother’s hard work will not be wasted in vain. This is why I took the leap of faith and started my own business.
