#299 From Idea to Impact; The CordBrick Success Story with Nick Barrett

In this episode, we sat down with Nick Barrett, the founder of CordBrick, a company that provides a simple yet innovative solution for managing phone cords.

Nick shares his journey from struggling with alcoholism and legal troubles to finding his purpose through entrepreneurship. He explains how the idea for Cordbrick - a weighted brick that keeps phone cords from falling off surfaces - came from his personal annoyance with his phone cord always dropping to the floor.

Throughout the conversation, Nick discusses the importance of starting with your entrepreneurial idea, the value of sharing that idea, and the challenges he faced in turning his concept into a viable product.

Nick also delves into his sober journey, describing it as a turning point that led to a broader personal transformation and commitment to help others.

Listen through to the end for Nick's latest CordBrick product and the exciting future of CordBrick.
