"Your brand is just your story. Branding is storytelling. Your story is the one thing other people can't copy. Your job as a person or a brand is to tell your story in a unique way that aligns... to help your prospect in the world." - Nick Nanton on branding
With great power, comes great responsibility
Using our platforms for good ... that's an encouragement from Nick's story. From Operation Toussaint to Jacob's Turn, Nick helps shine the light on stories that may not otherwise get told. After working in entertainment law, making movies and working in "that" industry, Nick made the decision to bring his expertise to serving others.
Serving others with your talents makes a difference in the world while bringing you joy. It also helps build other artists. Serve others on your team to build them up, improve your skills and change the world. For Nick, it's a win-win-win situation. And if you're still not sure on using video? Nick has some advice:
"Do you think if people knew what you knew, it would help somebody? If the answer is yes, then you need to get over yourself and you need to do it for other people." - Nick Nanton on overcoming objections to video
