"Thought is the guiding force that shapes the human experience,
unlocking the immense potential within each individual.
It is through thought that we explore, create, and innovate,
transcending the boundaries of our physical existence”

Podcast Host

Engaging and connecting Humans by giving them a platform to share their Inspirational stories. We have realised that many stories go un-noticed and fade away with the person. Our stories are real, authentic and heart warming.



Nolan is hands down one of the most sincere and grounded people I know. His story is inspiring, and he always focuses on helping others.

He has spoken many times in the Masterminds I have been part of and each time he brings a great perspective, his incredible story and best in class strategies to the table to always add as much value to others as he can. I am consistently impressed by the power of Nolan’s mindset in finding appreciation, compassion, growth and opportunity to show up as our best every single moment.
I highly recommend Nolan as a Mentor, Coach and a Friend.

Nolan’s STRAIGHT TALK WITH NOLAN is an excellent self-development coaching programme that I will recommend anyone. His work with young children and young adult is simply amazing just like his life story.
Coming from a humble background, he just resonates with positive energy and guides his mentee with so much of passion.
He makes sure that we keep moving forward no matter what and hold on to his principles to be authentic. I will always remember his moment in my life and specifically Nolan for his guidance, motivation and believing in me that I can do anything I want. Like Nolan says ‘Hey it’s the journey that matters and don’t beat yourself up if things don’t go your way.
Enjoy your journey!

Amazing, true to his word. This man helped me as a stranger in 2014 when I was trying to find my feet in SAP consultancy space.
He invited me to his home for a lecture and shared materials.
To this day, although career took another direction, I remain grateful to Nolan. I remember we discussed a wide range of issues from career to business. I have since done insurmountable.

God Bless Sir and may you achieve the desires of your heart.
