About Me

Nick Rizzi

Problem Solver & Millennial Educator

The most important fact about me is simple: people are my passion, specifically my peers and colleagues of the Millennial Generation. Throughout college I spent hundreds of hours networking and ensuring that I had a job after graduation. All of the time I spent ensuring this would happen led me to uncover frustrations that Gen X harbored towards Millennials, as well as what makes someone stand out  to a group of professionals.

Now I travel the country speaking with schools and helping others ensure they are prepped and ready for some of the more difficult parts of the “Real World”. I have been very fortunate to have such an active role within the Professional Development Organization Delta Sigma Pi, and frequently present at conferences with that amazing group of young professionals.

Passions

There is only one thing I love more than people, Millennials and Networking: travel. I have been to 9 countries (and counting) and 4 continents. It is on my bucket list to have stepped foot on all seven continents by the age of 30. You do not need a lot of money to travel, just determination and creative thinking. Collecting stories is exhilarating for me and travel is the perfect engine to create them!

Fun and Failed Endeavors

Below are a list of the businesses that I’ve started as I was growing up. I share this for those that may relate or see this in a younger loved one. Encourage following this passion! It’s important to note that every single one has never lost money, although not all of them have made very much (or any). The point I try to make with this list is you don’t necessarily need a business plan and lots of money to start and/or run a successful business. I’m all for bootstrapping where you can! Please feel free to borrow any of these ideas if this helps you get your dreams and goals kick-started!
