Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet podcast series
Born in country-Victoria, Australian businessman, TV celebrity, model, aspiring actor, Headspace brand ambassador and underBRACKS founder, Nick Bracks is quite clearly never bored.
Discovered by American Crew in 2009, Nick Bracks has a modelling portfolio that includes Australian retail giants Myer, David Jones and GQ magazine. He’s a former restaurant/cafe owner, has been on Dancing with the Stars in front of millions of people, launched underwear label underBRACKS in 2013 and more recently co-founded superfood supplement, Activated Nutrients.
Drawing from personal experience in his youth with depression and anxiety, Nick has worked with wonderful organisations such as Headspace, Beyond Blue, En Masse and Movember. During today’s chat we share our personal experiences struggling with depression at a young age, finding our focus in our early twenties to pull through and the hunger of wanting to love yourself and achieve in life.
Now regular subscribers to the podcast will know that I’ve had many different career permutations in my short lifetime – Crown Casino bar guy, Emirates Airline international flight attendant, running music festivals & events around Australia, TV show music supervisor, photographer, biochemistry back in the day and now along with this podcast, I’m guiding social media for a range of international brands including Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate, Peroni Nastro Azzurro Italian beer, Bulmers Original cider, Philly Cream Cheese, Kraft Nuts Spreads and many more. One of the key lessons that Nick and I discuss and have both learned is to not be afraid to have a go…
“There’s nothing to fear, but fear itself” is never more true than in Nick’s case – we chat about the motivations of delving into different career opportunities, testing the waters of career paths that you think you might like and how it gets you closer to knowing who you are/what you want to do in life… oh and Nick Bracks shares with us the key to marketing yourself as your own brand. Very, very cool.
Oh yes, I’ve got three words for you. “Inspiring” and “Fingers pies.”
