The Unprecedented Rise of Motivational Speaker, Nick Laureano
Published In Partnership With Author, Charles Myambo
In a world filled with uncertainty and discouragement, there is a clear need for a dose of positivity. Challenges such as depression, unfulfillment, grief, poverty and health issues are all prevalent in society. Oftentimes, people resort to finding distractions to help ease their pain. Others resort to alcoholism to take off the edge and in worst cases, some relinquish their desire to be alive. The unfortunate thing about resorting to distractions is that they are merely a temporary measure that treats the symptoms of unhappiness but does not rectify the root issue of the unhappiness. With this realization in mind, it becomes quite evident that there is a need for more encouragement and positive reinforcement. As such, there are counselors, shrinks and motivational speakers. If you are reading this, then you are in luck because Nick Leaurano is the embodiment of a true motivational speaker!
Nick Laureano, aged 27 is a public figure born and raised in Brockton, Massachusetts. He rose to fame as a keynote speaker while displaying prominence in motivational speeches. He is a successful clothing line owner, actor and influencer. His vastly successful career has been well documented by significant outlets such as The Hype Magazine, E News, US Insider, New York Weekly, CEO Weekly, The Chicago Journal, LA Wire, Us Reporter, Tribune and many more. Nick is also the proud founder of the international clothing label known as “Only The Motivated” (OTM). The OTM brand was launched with the penultimate goal of encouraging people from all walks of life to view their lives with positivity and motivation. The brand celebrates everyday people who face adversity and find the strength to overcome it all.
In the years to come, Nick fully intends to cement his position at the forefront of multiple sectors, from the entertainment industry and fashion scene to the personal development space. The 27 year old maverick is setting his eyes on emerging as a top actor in addition to his stellar repertoire as a motivational speaker. Nick had to overcome the stigma associated with being different and being an “outside the box thinker”. Nick had his own experience with feeling low and trying to stay motivated but sometimes to no avail. As a result, it was early on in life that Nick identified that mental health issues were prevalent in society despite the limited conversations around such subjects. On any given day, anyone can have struggles with sanity and mental health because of the various stresses associated with life. This realization pushed Nick to work towards sharing motivational messages with as many people as he could. Confirmation of his purpose as a motivational speaker came in the form of positive feedback from strangers, peers, family and friends who told Nick that his motivational messages were morale boosting.
Rising from a life of obscurity into a life worthy of emulation has placed Nick Laureano on the spot, which is why he lives every day with a mission to inspire. His goal out of life is to leave an impact and his powerful speeches, motivational words and infectious energy have kept many people going in their lives. He enjoys seeing other people thrive and smile, and he feels even better when he plays a part in people’s successes. “My content continues to rise, empower, and spark a change in every individual who watches it. Daily I get messages on how I inspired someone who was feeling stuck or stagnant in life and that alone is my why. My goal is to be one of the most recognized influencers leaving a mark on humanity in such a positive light while chasing my dream as an actor,” he said.
On a more personal note, Nick encountered challenges associated with his pigmentation as an adolescent and young teen. It would perplex Nick when peers would try to classify him solely according to the color of his skin. Despite being a white male, he identified more with other races. Most of his friends were people of color, predominantly black. Early on in his childhood he noticed that people were often treated differently based on how they looked. Similarly, he noticed that he was perceived differently and deemed as an outlier due to his choice in friends. Almost all his friends were of a different race group to him. This is largely because Nick had a lot of exposure to peers of different races throughout his adolescence and teen years. It is this exposure that Nick credits his open mindset to. The opportunity he had to witness and assimilate different types of cultures helped mold him into the free thinker he is today. His divergent worldview is part of the reason Nick fell in love with motivational speaking. He wants to express his love and passion for all race groups and ethnicities while helping inspire unity.
