Nick Laureano was born in Brockton Massachusetts, a city with a population of just over 95,594 right on the edge of Boston. Growing up, Nick was putting his energy towards whatever he was passionate about—academics, sports, and other creative hobbies. He was no stranger to feeling like an outsider and struggled to maintain his constant forward drive.
“I had to work hard and prove something to even be noticed by anyone, but I didn’t mind as all I know now is to work hard and give everything my all, even if I’ve already accomplished a lot,” he said.
From dreams of playing for the NBA to becoming a rising motivational influencer, Nick’s current path was always a goal in his mind, constantly improving regardless of circumstance—growing his career, building connections, and refusing to settle for anything.
“Settling is too common nowadays and I’ve told myself no matter how much success I obtain, I have to keep going,” he stated.
With the last year piled with success for Nick, he has launched a clothing brand labelled ‘only the motivated’ that has been spotted recently in Sneak Peak Luxury in Miami Florida. Nick is preparing to open in other out-of-state locations.
Nick foresees a steep upward climb of growth, motivating others along with himself. He is living life day by day, taking time to grow, learn, and teach. A positive mindset can change your life, but it takes dedication, time and effort, and that’s where it gets tough. If you want it, go for it, but only if you give it your all.
