With the year coming to an end, I think it is very appropriate to take a look back at what was most defiantly the best year I’ve ever had. This year was the start of many great things, and it all really started when I walked across the stage in a local convention center and in one swift motion went from a high school student who was running a business to a full-time business owner and entrepreneur carving his own path to success through life….Continue Reading “Let’s Reflect On 2014”

Of my many goals for 2015, which you will be able to find in a future article, one of them is specifically to read more books throughout the entire year. Additionally, it is said that you are more likely to accomplish your goals if you write them down with some detail. While I do plan on writing them on paper, I also thought it would be very helpful if I wrote them in a list to share with all of you. Additionally, I want to…Continue Reading “Ten Books I Want to Read in 2015”

For a few months, we’ve had a Forex category on the NicAndPatrick website, and through that time, no articles have been published in that specific category. That changes today. I want to start a blog series all about my experience with trading and Forex in general. I won’t be giving trading advice for specific currency pairs, at least, that isn’t the plan as of this article. So, if you’re looking for that, I recommend looking for closed groups with professional and knowledgable traders. If you…Continue Reading “How I Began Trading Forex Straight Out of High School”

At my high school graduation, the chosen speaker, I’ve forgotten who it was, told us the “Bill Gates 11 Rules They Don’t Teach You In School”. Oddly enough, those aren’t from Bill Gates at all and are actually from the book “Dumbing Down our Kids” by educator Charles Sykes, but still they are pretty inspirational for future employees. You can read the original version of these rules here. Now, as many of you know, I’m not a future employee. I’m not a future anything. When I…Continue Reading “10 Rules For Young Entrepreneurs”

Here it is. A blog post that I’ve honestly been wanting to write for a long time now. A post that is going to get real and talk about my health from where it really stands. I know things need to change in regards to my health, and that change starts today with this blog post. Some of you who have kept up with me for a while might be asking, “Why now?”, and the true answer to that is that I finally feel ready….Continue Reading “My Goals For A Healthy Lifestyle”

Over the past year, I’ve learned more about life than previously learned over the other 17 years, but one of the most important tasks I’ve taught myself to do everyday is learn from yesterday, live for today, and plan for tomorrow. Previously, I was focusing too much of my energy on making things right from the past and preparing for the future, but through all of that, I forgot some things. I forgot to live. I forgot to smile, and I forgot to be happy….Continue Reading “Learn from Yesterday, Live for Today, and Plan for Tomorrow”

This a dual post by both Nic King And Patrick Fassler. It was heavily collaborated on, and written together. Thus, we, us, and other group pronouns are used. Recently, we’ve been seeing a lot of people posting on Facebook talking about how they are going to college, starting their classes, and dealing with the homework they are getting. This really got us thinking. Everyone knows what these people are going through. This is the road that most people travel. This is the road that, as of 2013, 66% of…Continue Reading “What It’s Like On The Road Less Traveled”
