Guest: Nick Friedman Age: 37 years  Location: Tampa, FL Bio: Nick Friedman is President and Co-Founder of College H.U.N.K.S. Hauling Junk & Moving, the largest and fastest-growing moving and junk removal franchise opportunity in North America. Nick started the business in college with his childhood best friend in a beat-up cargo van and has grown to over 100 franchises and $100 Million sales nationwide. He has since been named among the Top 30 Entrepreneurs in America Under 30 by INC Magazine and was named on the same list as Mark Zuckerberg as one of the 30 Most Influential CEO’s Under 30. Nick is a three-time Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award Finalist, and he won the prestigious award in 2018. He has been featured in numerous business books and textbooks, as well as Forbes, Fortune, and many other national publications. Nick’s company has appeared every year on the INC 5000 list of Fastest-Growing US Companies and has appeared twice on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Nick is also a TV personality, having appeared as a guest on shows, including the first episode of ABC’s Shark Tank, Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker, and CNBC’s BlueCollar Millionaires. He is also a Board Member of the Young Presidents Organization (YPO). As an author, Nick co-wrote a bestselling book entitled Effortless Entrepreneur: Work Smart, Play Hard, Make Millions, which seeks to entertain and inspire budding entrepreneurs. The world needs more: 1. Purpose Driven Organizations 2. Trust 3. Positivity 4. Altruism WOW factor: I realized that I was never the most talented nor smartest person, but that I could make up for what I lacked in natural ability with hard work and persistence. A few moments that have helped shape this for me were when I pursued basketball in high school and college, I was always a benchwarmer, and I was able to work hard and eventually earn my way to a starting spot and eventually a college opportunity. Also when we launched our business in a highly competitive industry, and with persistence and hustle, we were able to overcome obstacles to win. My team members observe this work ethic and model it for themselves as well. I also realized that I enjoy coaching and inspiring others as a result of this. Favorite Color: Blue
