JNikLC Hall of Warriors

Last week, I discovered a video of an incredible woman named Kacy Catanzaro competing in NBC's American Ninja Warrior. She's not only the first woman to ever attempt the obstacle course, but she did what very few men have ever done -- she conquered the obstacle course.

In my book The Warrior's Odyssey, I wrote about the Warrior of a world called Thera who set out to conquer many obstacles in order to reach his destiny. One of the reasons I wrote this book is because I've always been inspired by warriors. These are the men and women who are not only passionate about achieving their dreams, but put all their effort in conquering the obstacles to achieve those dreams. And somehow they find the courage to do all of this while helping others along the way.

So I have decided that starting on this #WarriorsOdysseyWednesday, I will begin inducting people into the official JNikLC Hall of Warriors. It won't be every Wednesday, but once in awhile when I feel like someone truly exemplifies a warrior -- I will induct them. And since this is a blog about reaching personal and professional success, the men and women I will be inducting into the Hall of Warriors will be people I believe inspire personal and/or professional success.

Please welcome Kacy Catanzaro -- my first inductee into the JNikLC Hall of Warriors!



Stay tuned for the weeks to come as I induct more warriors into the official JNikLC Hall of Warriors!

The Secret to Achieving Your Dreams

To achieve your dreams you must take action. I know you were hoping for some magic formula that will get you instant success, but that simply isn't real. The only secret is take action. And the reason I call it a secret, is because so many people refuse to accept that action is necessary. It’s not really their fault, scam artists have sold people the idea that as long as you truly want something all you have to do is think about how bad you want it and some magical force will make it happen. But that's a lie.

Make no mistake about it -- positive thinking is necessary. But as important as desire is, it won’t come of anything if you don’t take the action to make it happen.

Let me put it this way: If you want to be a billionaire, you can lock yourself in a room and focus on that billion dollars coming your way, but if you stay there it will never come, no matter how much you want it. You must work for it.

No success will come without action. No success will remain without action.

Take action.

Jason Nik interview with Ashish Walia of LawTrades


Anyone who has ever had to find a lawyer knows how much of a hassle it can be. Not only do you not know which lawyers are qualified to represent you, but you also have no idea what it's going to cost you until you meet with them. LawTrades changes all of that. The innovative new company makes finding a lawyer more efficient than any other method I have seen before.

I talked with Ashish Walia, COO of LawTrades to share with JNikLC more about the company, his experiences as an up and coming lawyer, and other personal insights on professional success.

--------------
Jason Nik: Joining JNikLC for this interview is Ashish Walia. Tell us a bit about yourself.

Ashish Walia: I'm on the founding team of LawTrades. I was born and raised in Connecticut, but I moved to New York City to attend Saint John's University in Queens. That's where I met our founder Raad back in our undergraduate days. After that, I attended law school and I'm working on finishing up my degree while working on LawTrades.
JN: Tell me about LawTrades.

AW: LawTrades is an on demand service that helps businesses and consumers get legal help. LawTrades takes away all the tedious barriers that get in the way of people trying to get legal help. By making legal services accessible, transparent, and affordable we're really excited about shaking up the legal industry and making it more efficient. We're in major states like New York, California, Texas, Illinois, Washington and Florida.

JN: How does LawTrades differ from other websites with directories for lawyers?


AW: LawTrades is more than just a directory. We have a lot of quality control mechanisms in place so that clients get personalized price quotes and introductions from lawyers that are vetted. Just to walk you through the process, when you go on LawTrades, you submit your job, get price quotes right away and you can pick a lawyer based on a time that works for you! All without ever having to pick up the phone. Everyone values time, and we save clients' time. We're also using technology to make lawyers more accessible.
JN: You all were friends before founding LawTrades. Talk to me about starting a company with friends. I know a lot of people want to work with friends, but have concerns about working with people they're close with. Were there concerns doing a startup with friends? What advice can you give to people who plan to work with friends?
AW: Raad came up with the idea and then I jumped on board. We're a team of three. We all knew each other since college because we pledged the same fraternity. I think that it's much easier to start a company with your friends because when you work for a startup, you're essentially married to your team. You work with them all day, you collaborate, you bounce ideas and you're genuinely working together to make something great. I think it comes down to trust. If you trust your team, then everything else should fall into place. There weren't any concerns with doing a startup with my friends because it was actually the opposite, we knew each other and we knew that we had the skills to compliment each other. The best advice I have is to make sure you can see yourself working with whoever you decide to start your company with. You have to think long term so before you commit yourself to it, just ask yourself "Is this someone I can work with all the time? Is this someone I want to grow a large business with? Is this someone I can trust?"

JN: What other features does LawTrades include and what can we expect to see in the future of LawTrades?


AW: - Booking system so you can book appointments with lawyers online based on your availability.
- Transparent price quotes without ever having to pick up the phone from up to five lawyers that want to help you out.
- Personalized introductions to a vetted community of lawyers.
- We're developing a mobile application, being able to actually process payments on the site for when you actually do need to hire a lawyer on the site.

JN: Everyone knows that networking is a great way to connect with others for professional and personal success. Can you offer some networking tips? How can people make the most of their connections?

AW: I think the most important thing about networking is that you can't go into a networking event looking to immediately find a customer. You have to go to networking events with the intention to establish relationships and to make friends. I think sometimes people automatically get caught up in the idea of going to a networking event and immediately growing their business or finding a job etc. There has to be a willingness to engage with others and build meaningful relationships that will go a much longer way in the future. JN: For the people out there that want to start their own business -- what is the most important piece of advice you can offer them?
AW: I think the most important thing that you should do is validate your idea before you spend thousands of dollars into the business. Validate your idea, go out there and get feedback on what you're trying to build from an objective group of people to see if it's something that people would use. With that feedback and everything you learn while trying to validate the idea you can take that knowledge and grow a business that brings immediate value right away. I think it's important to read a lot about businesses and entrepreneurs, to help you gain the skills necessary to run a business.

JN: What is one thing you did not learn in law school that you wish they taught you?
AW: Law school is very old school in the sense that most of the stuff you learn is theoretical. I wish law school taught me more practical things about actually running a law practice, learning how to get a clients, running a practice etc.
JN: What advice could you give to up and coming lawyers?
AW: Law school can be difficult, time consuming and stressful but like anything in life, you have to embrace the struggle. It only makes you stronger and makes the reward at the end totally worth it!

JN: Ashish, thank you for joining JNikLC and taking the time to tell the readers about LawTrades and the road to success. Are there any projects, websites, or social media you would like the readers to know about?

AW: Stay tuned for our updates! We're working on some exciting stuff. We engage with all of our users so you can follow us on Twitter @lawtrades or like us on Facebook. Your readers can email me to discuss LawTrades anytime at ashish@lawtrades.com

The Intelligence of a Warrior

It's #WarriorsOdysseyWednesday, so today I'm going to share with you another characteristic required to be a warrior  -- intelligence.

A warrior doesn't have to be the smartest person ever, but a warrior must be dedicated to always learning. You don't have to be in school to learn. Anyone can study anything on their own. So even if you've graduated high school or you're not in college, you still can learn. 

Additionally, as I mentioned in the blog "You Don't Know It All," people who think they know it all and refuse to learn new things are only hurting themselves. If you refuse to accept that you don't know everything, you will never be a warrior. An intelligent person can accept their mistakes and learn from them. 

A warrior is always studying, always learning, and always trying to improve. To be a warrior you must always keep an open mind and make an effort to learn more.

Don't Be Yourself

I wonder how many people are going to bash this blog post based on the title alone. It's the world we live in -- people make assumptions about an idea without really understanding it. I'm here to tell you that one of the most overused pieces of advice that people throw around is an utter waste of your time. "Be yourself" is the advice that has failed millions of people and will fail millions more until the people receiving the advice and the people giving the advice understand what it truly means to "be yourself." Because like I said, people make assumptions about ideas without fully understanding the concept -- and that is where the problem arises.

To be clear, I'm not telling you don't be yourself, despite what the title of this blog says. I'm telling you to be your TRUE self, not a shell of yourself.

Society's biggest fear in being its true self is how others in society will perceive them. Do you really want to live a life faking who you are, being a shell of yourself just to impress others? A life lived like that is a life wasted. If you have dreams that you want to achieve, you must be willing to break out of your shell and share with the world the true you.

Sometimes it may take some guidance to become who you truly are, but within us we all have the potential to be so much more. If you want to succeed at the "Dream. Conquer. Achieve. Repeat." path you must be able to be your true self.

If I get into a business with someone, I want to know the person I'm getting into business with. And if later I find out the person was being fake with me, and trying to impress me by not being their honest self -- they will lose my business. The same applies to friendships and girlfriends. I want the real person, not a false representation.

So don't be a version of yourself defined by your fears, instead be your true self!

The Truth About Cheaters

Here's the cold, hard truth about cheating -- if someone cheats on you, it means they don't care about you. I know it sounds harsh, but it's a fact. The moment your significant other decided to cheat is the moment they decided you weren't worth it. A cheater doesn't respect you. A cheater doesn't care about your heart. The moment your significant other cheated on you, was the moment they proved that you were their insignificant other.

Be careful, because in the midst of all that painful emotion of being cheated on, a cheater will often try to spin the blame on you and try to make you feel guilty, but there are NO excuses for cheating! If they have an issue with you, they need to talk to you about that issue or break up with you.

A cheater may apologize and promise to do everything to prove to you how sorry they are, but don't let that fool you. Because even if they absolutely stay true to their word, it doesn't change the fact that at least one point in their relationship with you they didn't think you were worth it. All it takes is one time for them to not think you were worth it, for this to become a cycle for them and cheat on you again. You deserve someone who ALWAYS knows your worth.

If your significant other cheats on you, that means they decided you were their insignificant other, and it's time you do the same. Break up with them, because there is someone out there who will know your worth and treat you like a truly significant other. That person will cherish you. That person will never cheat on you.

No Investor Yet? No Problem.

Almost every startup dreams of finding an investor that believes in their business as much as they do, and is willing to invest the money they desire to get them off the ground leading them to huge success. But if a startup does not get that investment -- are they stuck? Should they give up on their dream? The answer to both of those questions is “no.” Money is not the foundation of a startup. Knowledge and effort is. 

The phrase “knowledge is power” is especially true in business. If you’re starting a company, you must know everything you can about your business. If you don’t, not only will your foundation likely crumble, but you probably won’t be able to get the funding you want. Learn your business and know what your company is all about before approaching an investor.

Effort is extremely important, because without it, no matter how great your idea is, it will never become more than an idea. Once it truly gets started, you’ll need to keep up that effort to make meaningful progress. That effort is integral to getting an investor. An investor needs to believe that the person they are investing in is willing to put in the effort so they can get their money back and make more money.

Now let’s say you do know all you need to about your business and you’re putting in all your effort, but still can’t get funding -- you can still move forward with your own money. Will the budget be tighter? Yes, but a tight budget is not necessarily a bad thing. Having very little money can teach you to use your money wisely. You can learn to spend your money only where it needs to be spent. Or you’ll fail at money management. That’s very important to note -- if you can’t manage your money when you have so little of it, no investor will trust you to manage their money.

If you find a way to get investors in the early stages of your startup, good for you! But if you don’t, that does not mean you have failed. In fact, in the long-run this may play out better for you. It can teach you greater responsibility in money management -- no matter if you have a little or a lot.

The Great Disconnect

Smartphone enthusiasts will have you believe that we're living in the smartphone revolution. But maybe this is less of a revolution and more a sign of the zombie apocalypse. We have all heard stories about the zombie invasion -- the dead rising from the grave and attacking us all. Perhaps, George Romero and Robert Kirkman had it wrong. Maybe Stephen King’s Cell was the most prophetic vision of a zombie invasion -- with phones being the cause of us losing our humanity.

It’s time to put down your smartphones.

I fear the most for the people who are growing up in this smartphone era. They don’t know life before the smartphone and it will be much harder for them to develop real world personal skills and enjoy life, than those like myself and those that came before me. I’m part of that unique generation that grew up before the smartphone. I remember the landline. A phone that was used solely for phone calls and could only be taken with you as far as the twisty wire could stretch. I had a childhood without a phone, so I interacted with people who were there with me. And if I wanted to talk with someone I would use my phone to call them and speak to them vocally, then set up a way to meet with them.

That time has passed. Now we live in the era of smartphones, where our phones rarely leave our sides no matter where we are. Society claims that our smartphones connect us more than ever, but truthfully it disconnects us more than ever. Rather than telling people about our epic vacations, we post pictures of them online in hopes of getting ‘likes.’ Instead of sharing the news we hear with our friends, we post a status. This is not true communication and because of that we’re losing our humanity.

Use your phone to call someone and catch up with them vocally. Encourage friends to meet in person, and then when you do -- put your phone down! There is no point in spending time with people if most of the time is spent staring at your phone.

Instead of taking a million pictures of the sunset and tweaking the picture settings just right, put your phone down and just take it in. Enjoy the sunset.

I was at Disneyland recently, and I was shocked at how many people would take their phones out on rides and record the ride. People spend hundreds of dollars to get into Disneyland and then rather than enjoying the ride for themselves they ruin their personal experience to record it on their phones and share it online.

Keep your phone in your pocket, enjoy the experience, and then tell people about it. You will grow more socially and become more interesting to people if you do that.

Smartphone usage has it’s place. I admit that I use mine frequently, but only for work. If I want to connect with people, I make an effort to connect with them in person.

There is a time and a place for taking pictures, texting, and viewing social media on your smartphone. That time is not all the time. Only sometimes.

It’s time to put the phone down, refuse to disconnect, and truly connect.

The Courage of a Warrior

Today is #WarriorsOdysseyWednesday and I want to address one of the characteristics of being a warrior in your odyssey to "Dream. Conquer. Achieve. Repeat."

The first characteristic to being a warrior is courage. A warrior understands that success doesn't happen over night. To achieve success it takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and awareness. So many times people give up because it's taking too long for them to achieve their dreams. That's a big problem. The people who succeeded at conquering their obstacles and achieving their dreams, kept going until they succeeded.

Another problem is when the person starts losing faith in themselves because they haven't succeeded yet. Don't. Success doesn't happen over night. Don't lose faith because you're not there yet. Be courageous by continuing to put forth the effort and staying dedicated to achieving your dream. If each day is spent making an effort to move forward, then you're getting closer and closer to achieving your dreams. Keep that up and the odds of success are in your favor.

Lastly, sometimes an idea simply isn't going to work. A warrior has the courage to accept their plan isn't working and searches for a new plan that will work.

If you want to "Dream. Conquer. Achieve. Repeat." then you must have the courage of a warrior.

Authenticity in Style

Trends come and go, but when it comes to style everyone has their own unique style and they should never stray from that. I'm not saying stay in the past, it's ok and welcome to follow fashion trends, but it's important that you have an authenticity in your style.

Authenticity in style means you don't simply wear something because someone popular is wearing it. You wear something because it fits you and represents you. Oftentimes, so-called Fashion Consultants go to their clients' closets, dump everything, then go shopping for a full wardrobe makeover. While it may excite the client while it happens, this is a failed approach. In a few months time, the former client will end up reverting back to the style they had before, because psychologically they feel more comfortable in that style.

With my background in Psychology, I understand how important knowing a person to know their style is. That's why when someone hires me as their Fashion Consultant & Style Coach, I don't throw out their closet or put them in a trendy new outfit. I get to know the client and understand who they truly are and what they want to represent. In fact, many times I can work with them with what they already have in their closet and help them understand how to wear those outfits.

If you're authentic, then when you go shopping you won't have trouble finding what clothes to buy, because you know who you are. And most importantly you will be comfortable and confident with what you're wearing.

Bet On Yourself

Some people are luckier than others. Some people are unluckier than others. Sometimes good things happen, sometimes bad things happen. It doesn't matter which side of the coin you fall on, you cannot make life decisions based on luck.


You have no idea what life holds for you. You have no idea what's in store for you. Anything can happen at any time. But you can't let fear of the unknown stop you from pursuing your dreams.

You want to be a millionaire? Don't count on winning the lottery. I'm not telling you don't play the lottery. If you want to play the lottery -- go for it. But just don't count on winning it.

I'm not telling you not to go and play games at Las Vegas. If you're doing that for fun -- go for it. But if you're not a professional poker player, then don't place your bets there to become rich.

In this highly chaotic, random world we live there is really only one thing we can count on -- ourselves. If you want to create opportunities for yourself, then you need to start betting on yourself. When you put yourself out there and give everything you have, that's when you will start seeing opportunities.

You Don't Know It All

Stop fooling yourself into thinking you know it all. You don't and it’s better that way. People who claim to know it all, refuse to learn. If you want to grow as a person and achieve your dreams, which is presumably why you’re here reading this, you must be open and willing to learn. Listen to other people’s ideas. If you keep a closed mind, you will remain stuck where you are.

I love to learn. I love to develop new skills. I love to listen to unique perspectives. That’s how I continue to grow. That’s how I've become a successful life coach. If you open yourself up to learning, you improve.

It's a really simple concept that so many people refuse to accept. But the people that refuse to accept it will never be successful. If I still haven’t gotten through your head, then let me put it this way -- if you did already know it all then you would have conquered all the obstacles in your life by now and achieved all of your dreams. But you’re haven't. So don’t act like you know it all and stop closing yourself off to growth opportunities. One of the best things anyone can do for themselves is open their minds and learn.

#WarriorsOdysseyWednesday


Today, JNikLC begins its celebration of #WarriorsOdysseyWednesday. Based on my book The Warrior’s Odyssey, at least one Wednesday a month will feature a post about being a warrior today! Everyone has the ability to be a warrior and I will show you how you can become one. Whether or not you believe that you have what it takes to “Dream. Conquer. Achieve. Repeat.” you need to take a closer look atThe Warrior’s Odyssey.

The Warrior’s Odyssey  tells the story of a young warrior’s quest to save the land of Thera from being overtaken by the diabolical Critic’s bid to rule the land in absolute darkness. Along the journey he meets a royal family, a man known only as Shadow, mermaids, a sinister snake, and a pharaoh, all of whom help transform him into the man he was prophesied to become. The Warrior’s Odyssey is a testament to the fact that we cannot reach our destination without first braving the journey.


With each page turned, The Warrior’s Odyssey raises philosophical questions, making for a truly enlightened reading experience.


The Warrior’s Odyssey intuitively weaves together an exploration of the soul, dreams, destiny, suffering, faith, and love into a lyrically brilliant adventure that will inspire readers for generations to come.

I wrote my book not only to tell a great story of adventure, but also to inspire everyone to find the Warrior within themselves and discover what they’re made of. There are many layers to this book and you won’t get everything through just one read. People have come up to me telling me they initially bought the book just to have something fun to read, but then discovered things within themselves they didn’t know existed until reading The Warrior’s Odyssey. Even I discover  amazing new things about myself when I read this book again — and I wrote it!

This book truly embodies my motto “Dream. Conquer. Achieve. Repeat.” If you have any questions about The Warrior’s Odyssey, feel free to ask me. And when you read it, remember to share your photos on Wednesdays with the hashtag #WarriorsOdysseyWednesday.
