Nick is called the Gentle Giant for a reason. The way he teaches his SG course and the impact he leaves on a person after it’s finished, is worth every penny spent. He has a way in helping a person realize their own Giant potentials. From Nicks gentle coaching style, to his vast amounts of knowledge ,to the beliefs he holds in each one of us, makes taking this course a life altering decision. I cannot thank him enough. I am forever grateful to be part of this Giant Tribe. “Be the Giant that’s already within you” 



What Nick has created with SG is a way for us all to see our own giantess. To become our own giant not a copy of someone else. I was reminded that the journey is almost like a skipping stone. They're ups and downs, yet we are constantly moving forward. There are moments when we don't feel we are as a giant. That's ok. Yet we need to remember to look around. There are some smalls that have yet to have an awareness they could be a giant. You being you might be that awareness... Even when you don't feel like a giant. SG stitches together so many things you thought you knew and didn't. It provides a way to put different tools in your tool kit as you go forward... As you skip ahead in life.



Nick's coaching was spot on and is such alignment. It really put us in a place to come from our highest. A Giants Journey on aligning his/her ownself to their highest self and highest potential in life. All work is done within ourselves and this gives you a clear path to make quantum leaps within.

Are YOU Ready To Live A Giant Life?

Master the Language of the Giants in the Sum Gigante (SG) Twelve Journeys Program


Our individual and group coaching programs take YOU through Twelve Journeys to master your mindset and your highest way of being in simple and repeatable steps. You will have the mindset of a Giant and this will move you away from playing Small.

What does having a Giant Mindset mean for you?

  • It means that no matter your origin, gender, culture, race, political, or religious views, you matter, and your contribution, no matter how seemingly small or large, can have a positive impact on this world.

  • You become the observer and narrator of your life. You take back your power.

  • You own your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and the impact they have on yourself and others.

  • You are equipped with tools to hold space for, handle, and recover from difficult emotions and events.

  • You know how to navigate uncertainty.

  • You have an abundant mindset.

  • You have grit.

  • You have respect for others and differing points of view without relenting your own value system.

  • You have a vision for your life and are able to nurture your vision's creation while letting go of how it comes about. You are able to surrender the path while holding the vision.

  • You leave a legacy for you, your loved ones, and humanity. 


Mindset is foundational to any skillset. Without it, skillsets crumble. Nothing kills a great idea faster than a bad attitude. Not building this foundation is like frosting dog poop because who you are BEing will impact everything you do. 

We help YOU recognize YOUR giant potential and actualize it by taking you through six root journeys that break through any unuseful developmental and cultural value systems that keep you from living a giant life. We open up space for life, not only to be what it is but to transform in ways you never imagined.


We follow this healing and release by taking you through five growth journeys where you will learn to love uncertainty and know exactly what it takes to uncover your life's purposes, and surrender to the pathways that will take you to your grandest visions.


Finally, we help you discover and lean into your Giant legacy, and this will give you the "why" you will need to activate your new Giant life.


To date, we have taught these principles to thousands of individuals from around the world. The Twelve Journeys have been received regardless of one's age, gender, culture, beliefs, values, ethics, and morals.


One participant said about this program, "... it saved my life. Every quote, meditation, live session, and recording has helped me to grow, heal, and BEcome who I AM!" Another stated, "It helped me take a deep dive into myself so I could "fully" step into what's possible for my life," and another said that for him it was "life confirming.  It has been a program I used to Become More mindful of what I want to create and of whom I want to BE."


The Twelve Journey Programs are outlined below.


Not only will you learn the Journeys in an experiential learning environment, but they will mold your way of BEing. The live individual and group coaching will ensure that you understand and retain the Giant concepts for years to come and perhaps for a lifetime.
