The History - A Century of Entrepreneurship
We are the third generations running businesses. During this time we have learnt about the core business principles that never changes in business. They are the reasons why our clients are consistently growing thriving businesses with a great company culture.

“Over the past 3 years we have built an exciting team at Nobody Denim thanks to the guidance of Nik. During this period, we have double our revenue from 7 figures in annual revenue and established ourselves firmly in the eight figures. I remember before hiring Nik as my business coach, I was working ridiculous hours including weekend. He has guided me to become a better leader. He has taught me how to recruit the right leaders and the right talent. He has coached me on how to become a better leader and how to communicate effectively with my team. It is so much easier today to delegate on the outcome and trust my team to figure out the how. I have the choice to work less than 20 hour a week. I’ve learnt through Nik’s business coaching that the more I work on my business, the faster I grow my business.”

“I run an HR consulting business called HR Gurus and we work with small to medium sized businesses setting up outsourced HR functions. After working with Nik for a few weeks, my business and my personal mindset has been transformed. It was hard to hold up the mirror and admit that certain things about my business and me personally had to change but I now feel totally excited about the future. Nik has helped me to reconnect with my passion and why I started my business in the first place. Nik helped me to focus on what I am best at and in turn what products I should be offering based on this. My business is leaner, meaner and set up to succeed. In the last 2 weeks I have signed 3 new clients on, which is total of $150,000 in sales, which is already half of what I did in the whole of last year!”

“Previous to my meeting with Nik, my services and customer base seemed so wide it was hard to clearly explain it to anyone. I felt fearful and lost and realised for the first time I didn’t have a clear marketing focus, therefore what I do is unclear to my clients. Nik changed that. I now feel a positive drive, passion and enthusiasm for what I can do to help individuals and companies with injury prevention and management. Nik challenged me with questions, thoughts and ideas that I had never even thought about, and his ability to grasp and understand my business and identify the niche market needs was amazing. He has helped me with sales and marketing and I have gone from making $800 a day to $4,500 a day. I honestly can’t thank Nik enough!”

“Hey Guys, I’m Mick Stillman from MaxPower Electrical. The 81up Business Coaching team has been instrumental in helping me establish my business system and move from a paper based business into the clouds. Things are so much different today. I used to have a stockpile of papers around the office. If you come to my office, you will find less clutter around my desk that’s a bonus. Even more exciting, I get to impress my clients. They used to have to wait a few days before I send them a quote. These days, I walk to site, measure up the place, enter it into my cloud based systems, create a quote, save it, send it and boom! Within minutes, it is in my client’s inbox. Follow up is so much easier and usually happens the next day. With this in place, I have noticed an increase in quote conversion. Less work, more money. Thumbs UP.”
