EP 07: How Do I Figure Out My Style with Dan Nicholson

Published on: 11th March, 2020

What do high school sports have to do with succeeding in business? Answer: more than you think. You can only play the game your way once you know what “your way” is, so how do you go about finding that out? 

On this episode of the Rigging the Game podcast, Dan dives deeper into the concept of “playing your game”, explains how to discern your unique style of business using your favorite sport, and explores why we lose touch with that singular style as we grow up.  

What You’ll Learn 


  • How your greatest strength can overbalance and become your greatest weakness
  • What your memories can teach you about finding and operating in “your style”
  • How we are conditioned to operate according to what we “should” do - and why that really doesn’t matter
  • And much more!
