Episode #79 Create Your Own Economy with Dondee Nettles
His life, has been a literal Encyclopedia Bullcrappica of stories, mostly autobiographical in nature, and written under a pseudonym to disguise ownership. Stories that read like a Who's Who of a person struggling to find his identity in a world that was consistently inconsistent for him. His parents' divorce was the most damaging to him emotionally and the main reason he escaped into sports, academics and music, for much of his formative years. Suffice to say, when life got "lifey," he made a habit of diverting attention and pursuing an academic or athletic accomplishment. With the resultant trophies, certificates and awards, people focused on the prizes instead of the broken person behind them. When he was alone in his room, the headphones went on, he sank into his waterbed and the records and cassettes played for hours and months and years. This secret formula continued for over 10 years, until work accomplishments, changes in college majors, and focus on GPA took over. Now, prepare to read about HIM and his life in layers or cycles. It's crazy. And every word is true. You may relate, you may not. You may laugh, you may not. Heck, you may choke on your food. But one thing is for sure, you will shake your head! I warned you!

Whether it is coaching people to play golf, sharing marketing strategy, or helping individuals to improve their performance, this is what he focuses on—finding greatness.

For the past 20 years Nick has been obsessed over the consumer journey and the ways brands create better buying experiences.

During his time in retail he recognized most brands were taking a passive role in the customer experience. Set out to change that dynamic, he joined Skullcandy in 2010 to build an active global channel strategy focused on empowering sales associates to drive retail sell through. In 2012 Nick moved to GoPro to lead global brand advocacy through experiential product education with retailers, distributors, media, athletes, creators, and end users.  Recognizing many brands were still struggling to amplify advocacy, he accepted a marketing leadership role at ExpertVoice – the world’s largest advocacy platform, where Nick was responsible for helping brands like Reebok, The North Face, Purina, Oakley, and others to create comprehensive advocacy strategies designed to increase loyalty and drive sales.  Nick is a contributing author for the American Advertising Federation, Utah Business, and is featured in numerous marketing and technology publications. Nick is often on stage at conferences around the globe, sharing insights on what makes the best brands in the world.   He enjoys leading all areas of marketing including B2B and B2C as Nick believes the core of all marketing is rooted in telling authentic stories, building trust, and delivering exceptional customer experiences.
