EP.13 Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone
In Episode 13 “Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone” Nick Hughes of FoundersLive.com & Josh Fedie of SalesReach.io catch up as Nick passes through Minnesota while on his 12-month world tour supporting Founders Live. His business was founded in 2016 in Seattle to give startup founders a platform to share the businesses they are building and seek the support they need to grow. Their 99 second pitch events have become a favorite format of founders across the world ever since. After a life change in late 2018, Nick decided to hit the road in a deliberate 12 month hiatus from his normal life to learn more about what his company has become in states and places in the world he has never been. Not previously a world traveler, this has been an incredible lesson for him both physically and mentally as he continues working towards as far-off lands as Africa on his tour schedule. Talk about jumping off a cliff and building a plane on the way down!
