Are you suffering from Nice-Guy Syndrome?
Are you pushed, pulled and manipulated into doing what everyone ELSE wants you to do?
How to Stop Being a People-Pleaser, Quit Lying to Yourself About How Miserable You Are, And Finally Build a Life of Freedom Where You Don’t Come In Last Place.
If I Met You On the Street . . .
Would You Lie About How Miserable You Really Are?
People-pleasers are the best liars.
You’ll act happy, open, and tell me how great things are.
You’ll say you have a great family life and a job you love.
You lie to yourself too.
But it’s NOT your fault . . .
. . . you’ve been trained your whole life to show up and shut up!
(Hell, I started people-pleasing as a 6 year-old. You’ve probably had decades of practice putting other people first and ignoring your own needs.)
Maybe this sounds familiar – Do you . . .
➡️ Over-give in order to make everyone else happy
There you are, pulling double duty, doing things for people that treat you like trash because that’s JUST WHAT YOU DO! Of course, at the end of the day you’re left empty because nobody sticks around to give anything back to you. You give, they take – then they take off. (Until they need you again, that’s just how all your relationships go – you give your all and receive nothing in return.)
➡️ Say yes to things you don’t want to
Because saying yes is easier than facing the army of angry people that expect you to always do their bidding. You want to burn your life down, but you don’t know who you are anymore anyway. Where would you even start? It’s a lonely place to be and you’re officially stuck.
➡️ Hate your own life no matter how successful you are
Career success, romantic conquests and fast cars do nothing to bring you happiness that lasts because your life doesn’t feel like your own. Your fear of failure and letting people down is keeping you in prime people-pleaser territory. You’re afraid of setting boundaries, because you’re afraid you’ll sound like a jerk and be abandoned and alone.
I get you – I’ve been there.
I BEGAN my life trying to prove myself.
I wasn’t living my own life, I was living for everybody else.
All I wanted to do was make my dad proud. That’s what a man does, right?
I’d built my whole life around this idea. “MY DAD WOULD BE SO PROUD” I’d tell myself. It was a false foundation though, and eventually what broke me.
Things came crashing down HARD.
My dad was hiding a terrible secret. I hate even saying it, but if you know how terribly he betrayed us and how horrific the abuse was then you’ll understand why my world imploded.
Turns out my dad, who I tried desperately to please, was abusing people close to him.
I was blindsided, he wasn’t who I thought he was.
Why did I work so hard to prove to him that I was good enough when HE didn’t measure up?
Then came the drunken, depressive shit show.
I Threw EVERYTHING Away
I was drunk… all the time… and I didn’t even care.
I was existing so I could drink. I’d get to the bar at 9am, drink until 3pm, go home and pass out, then do it again at 5:30 pm until I could barely function and would pass out again
My home, my wife, my family- I didn’t care about losing anything (or everything). I just wanted to drink into oblivion and never face the hurt. It was too much.
One day at the bar everything was different. All the sights and sounds were familiar, but in a moment I just WOKE UP! I thought to myself, “If I’m not going to just die, I’ve got to do something different.”
I called my mom and asked for help. I told her I needed to be taken to a detox center immediately… or I might never wake up again.
Time to Change or Die
I felt no hope. No promise. No inkling of an idea about how I would have any kind of ‘better’ in my future. I just knew I had to change.
And change eventually came – I finally got sober.
(Do not be impressed by that sentence, it was actually relapse after relapse and very lonely. It did not come instantly or easily for me.)
As I was trying to get sober I found myself in the WORST relationship I’ve ever been in.
Manipulative, controlling, degrading and abusive and that’s putting it mildly.
Why did I keep ending up in these HORRIFIC relationships? What’s the f*cking deal?
Why do I keep having the same problem?
The answer: I didn’t even know who I was.
I was always living for other people, trying to make them happy.
I was a shallow shell of a person, still existing for everyone else.
People-pleasing was an addiction, just as much as the bottle was for me.
Could I Get Sober from People-Pleasing?
Goodbye to my nice, agreeable, doormat-style self. I was going to be the opposite – a people dis-pleaser!!
I read a lot of books about setting boundaries and they’re all garbage. They teach you about saying words and communicating your needs with every person you come in contact with and it’s so INACCESSIBLE!
Boundaries are not EXTERNAL first, they don’t start outside of us, they must be INTERNAL!
This is why I created my system, because boundary conversations are conversations that we have with ourselves FIRST.
Boundary books tell you to “set something in stone and make sure everybody respects it.”
YOU respect YOU, know your values, then you can learn to communicate and enforce them.
It’s inside first.
I’ve never been happier than I am now as a people DIS-pleaser.
And I’m Not The Only One
☑️ William: It was an epic course brother. As I sit here thinking of something witty to say, it's just pure raw emotion on my end. I am not sure why everytime i think of you or the course it brings tears to my eyes. They are tears of hope.
☑️ Craig: "I came into this program without much expectation or without knowing if the material would really apply to me. In the end, it certainly did.In the past week alone I have seen an incredible change in my approach to uncomfortable situations. Thank you, Nick!"
☑️ Mark: "I feel lighter and I don't spend all of my waking hours trying to craft an image of myself for everyone that I meet. The monkey vortex that ran through my brain of worrying about what everyone thought of me was exhausting. I sleep better. I feel better. I am actually happier than I have been for as long as I can remember."
☑️ Aletta: I really do deserve to take my place in the world. I deserve more and I am allowed so much more. I expect to be respected and I let people know now so that is a big change and shock for everyone.
How Long are You Willing to Let People-Pleasing Stop You From Living Your Own Life?
If you ignore what I’m saying and keep doing everything for everyone and putting yourself last, what could happen?
Will life get easier?
Will life get happier?
Or will you still be frustrated a year from now, struggling in relationships, feeling lonelier and more disconnected than ever? Still being manipulated into a puppet?
I know exactly how that feels. And I want you to hear me when I say . . . I’m with you!
I was a people-pleaser to my core and a pro at lying to myself and everyone around me.
But that all changed with boundaries.
Imagine When . . .
- You are in the driver’s seat, making your own decisions. You know yourself and trust yourself to make epic decisions. 🏎️
- You aren’t jumping “how high” for somebody else. Other people’s opinions don’t control you anymore! And even more importantly, you know exactly how to defend yourself against the manipulator tactics used against you. 🛑
- Your fears don’t rule your relationships. You don’t react like a caged animal when anyone gets close to you because you aren’t in a cage anymore- you’re a free man. 🚀
Here’s the Deal: The Life YOU Want is Within Reach
Why Do I Believe This is Possible For You Too?
→ Because I’ve seen solid boundaries TRANSFORM LIVES over and over again.
→ Because I’ve seen men go from door-mats to EXCUSE ME, that's my boundary.
→ Because I’ve seen “nice-guys” who feel disrespected by everyone in their lives discover their power and command respect with fair boundaries.
→ Because I’ve seen men who feel like useless puppets in relationships rock boundaries and establish thriving relationships that make everyone a little jealous.

And I’m going to show YOU exactly how you can build boundaries too - I don’t hold anything back.

Here’s what people are saying:
I learned so much in Nick’s boundaries class and implement the knowledge on a daily basis in my personal and professional life. The most valuable lesson was leaning that boundaries are more internal and setting limits for myself vs focusing on the actions of other people. It’s up to me to stop saying yes, and focus on what I really want. I love how open Nick is about his own vulnerabilities and lessons he has learned. He has a honest approach to teaching and cares about his clients.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that working with Nick has changed my life. I’ve learned some approaches for both my work and personal lives that have enabled me to navigate priorities and relationships, thinking of others while also considering myself. Nick is also someone who is easy to talk to and relate to — he understood where I was at and was able to work with me to craft a plan that helped me reach some specific goals that I had in mind. I’m grateful for the time spent.

Are You Still Sitting on the Fence?

You are not going to feel like a freshman again! Ha! This isn’t just a course, it’s Bootcamp! Every week you’ll be challenged to GO and DO something that gets you closer to solid, stable boundaries. Boundary Bootcamp is focused on real results and practical applications, not click-around quizzes that require no growth.

Do I have lifetime access?
Yes! Once you’re in, you’re in for life.
How many weeks should I plan on?

How long the challenge takes is completely up to you and how hard you go after it. Busy is not a good excuse to pass on Boundary Bootcamp.The course isn’t full of fluff, time-wasters or useless content. I drilled down the MOST important content and it’s sharp!
Am I too old? I’m afraid I’m too stuck in my ways that it’s not possible for me.
You’ve never had the resources until now, so it probably felt too hard and out of reach for you to change huh? You are never TOO old or TOO stubborn to be kinder to yourself. You’re never too set in your ways to start showing yourself the respect you deserve. It’s never too late to make YOU the priority, even if it’s the first time in decades. Don’t think for one second that you’re hopeless, I’m not giving up on you.
You are just ONE CLICK away . . .
. . . from turning into a people-DIS-pleaser who doesn’t take anymore shit
40% of individuals struggle with people-pleasing tendencies. You definitely aren’t alone, but the impact on your lives and relationships is DEEP and WIDE.
Just because you’ve been the dumping ground for your family, coworkers or partner doesn’t mean that has to continue. Make it stop.
I’ll show you how, step-by-step, to set boundaries so solid that you’re basically holding up a sign to the world that says, “Your Shit Stops Here!” 🛑
You are one click away from self-discovery! Authenticity is SO close you can almost taste it!Here I Come!
One final thought from Nick . . .
You’re at a crossroads. Sitting here isn’t easy. You’ve got a lot of people telling you exactly how you should be living your life. The noise is loud.
But you also have intuition, and maybe this is the moment where you say, “F*CK IT, I’m putting ME first!”
Maybe this is when you decide that “I’m going to stop pretending I’m fine and everything is good enough., I’m going to stop lying to myself and showing up in a fake-ass life where I never get to call the shots.”
The way I look at it- you have two options today . . .
#1–You can listen to the voices and the fears telling you that you don’t have to change a thing and you stay exactly where you are. Everything is fine, playing small is more comfortable for you anyway and you don’t want to upset the status quo. You don’t admit your lack of freedom and authenticity, and you keep shoving it down, falling prey to the manipulative controllers in your life.
#2– You put yourself first, say yes and join me in Boundary Bootcamp. You’ll internalize the skills that will take you from people-pleasing and numb to self-assured and living the life you design. As each week of the course goes by you’ll find yourself adopting a new mindset and making changes to your habits that break you free from old toxic patterns.
These are your options, and I would be so honored if you chose me as your coach, guide and friend along this journey. I commit to support you and never let you forget that your effort in bettering yourself is f*cking WORTH IT!
