Nicho is the Co-Founder of world #1 meditation app Insight Timer. It has 22 million users, all obtained organically.
Nicho spent the best part of his 20s working at ESPN and signing major multi-million dollar media deals like the rights to the Superbowl. From there he went on to a NZ software technology company, raising millions in funding.
But amongst all of this success, he was burning the candle at both ends, suffering chronic back pain, and abusing drugs and alcohol. It was at this time that he decided to completely overhaul his life; while meditation had eased his pain and abated his vices, he soon realised that it could be the key to business success and balance.
He now teaches vedic meditation to industry leaders and CEOs and more time has been spent on Insight Timer than all the other 2,500 meditation apps combined (over the last 10 years the Insight Timer community has spent 24 billion minutes meditating, that's more than 45,000 years!).
In this episode we talk about:
✅ The differences between monastic and household meditation techniques and adapting them to your lifestyle
✅ Why everyone has the capacity to use meditation as a recovery weapon
✅ How, as a leader of people, you can beat overwhelm and stress to think with clarity all of the time, and
✅ The Insight Timer business model and what sets them apart from their competitors.
You can connect with Nicho via his website or Insight Timer.
