Niclas Haritos looking at you
Hi stranger!👋🏼

Hi, I am Niclas Haritos 👋🏼

Thanks for checking out my site!

In November 2015, I decided to start my very first business.
Auto detailing with a pickup and delivery service.

When you are a 21 year old and try to sell a detailing job,
you most likely get a “NO” response without hesitation.

Especially if you look like this.

The idea was brilliant. There was one problem, though.🤨

Sales & Marketing 💰

At 21 years, there was almost no experience in sales or
marketing. Heck, I didn’t even know what marketing was.

On top of it, I am an introvert, big time. I don’t like talking about myself.

Now, this is my way of giving support and encouragement.

I dedicate this blog to helping you grow.

Yes, you, who doesn’t have no access to
business owners, investors, or supercar owners

Thrive in Life 📈

Growing and thriving is easier said than done.

If you have a big heart like me, you will understand how hard it is to say no to people you love.

It is for those who want to get more in life and want to grow

Mentally, Physically, Spiritually, Romantically, and Financially

Because this was what I want for you - Growth.

Yet, your introverted personality creates a huge roadblocks…

So, I hope this blog will encourage you to get started.

Let’s make your Dream come true - Enjoy! 🙂

My Micro Blog 👉 Twitter

Inspired by Jon Yongfook & Steph Smith . And the entire startup community in general.

Twitter is a great way to make a quick note if you don’t feel like writing an essay.

I got this idea from several books and podcasts but Jon & Steph gave me the visual example of how you can apply it to your journey.

So if you feel like you want to see more unfiltered updates than Twitter is the best place to see the raw footage of me building the unthinkable.

So Why Micro-Blogging?

My relationship with reading & writing was extremely poor.

I hated reading, and writing was just not something I couldn’t find enjoyable. ( At least in a money making sense )

Over the years, I created small habits to enjoy reading… It’s time to do the same with writing.

This is my way of establishing a new habit… and eliminating friction as much as possible.

The goal is to document my journey. And eventually inspire you to do one step at a time… no matter how small those steps are…
