In ‘Seven Figure Decisions: Having the Balls to Succeed,’ Nick provides insights on the building blocks, business practices, and fundamental mindsets that he has relied on to not only carry him towards millionaire success twice, but also to drag himself out of a deep depression that he suffered as a result of his own failure.

Among readers, Vertucci’s book has already resonated with outstanding applaud, and is intended for Vertucci’s typical audience, real estate investment students. However, anyone looking to achieve a high level of success, including experienced real estate investors, can benefit from the insights Nick covers in this book.
The Vertucci Mindset
The mindset Nick preaches in his book are much like those that he preaches to his students across the nation at his many live real estate investment seminars. This mindset revolves around four outstanding stages of idea development:
- See it: See the goal you want to achieve; see the place you want to be; see your intended results.
- Believe it: Believe that you can achieve the goals you have set within your sights; believe this no matter what anyone else does or says to try to bring you down.
- Map it: Develop a plan of action that outlines how you will be able to achieve your goal.
- Execute it: Carry out your plan, and don’t quit until you reach your desired results.
These steps seem simple on the surface, but beneath them is the deep drive and passion that Vertucci brings to his teachings. He developed these lessons after a string of failures, depression, and mistakes, all of which led him down a path of self-discovery and required him to dig deep within himself to find the strength to carry on.
It’s this mindset that eventually changed his life and placed him back on the path towards success. His book ‘Seven Figure Decisions: Having the Balls to Succeed’ dives deep into this success-driven mindset in a way that anyone can apply it to their unique business or career model.
The ultimate key to success, according to Vertucci, is having the mental strength to persevere through hardship and struggle, to overcome one’s own lack of confidence, and to move forward in a way that is passionate. Self-belief needs to become an unbreakable habit, according to Vertucci. He encourages others to continually push towards success, despite the negativity that surrounds them. He also preaches the ideologies of embracing change and fostering a path of self-growth, while being mentally prepared for the various challenges that arise on the journey towards success.
These are the lessons that Vertucci’s life taught to him, and the lessons he applied to his own situation in order to reach success. Vertucci says that most people fail to succeed due to their patterns of negative thoughts. The way to overcome these patterns is by transforming them into a pattern of positive thoughts instead. Vertucci preaches a mindset that enables this transformation.
Who is Nick Vertucci?
There is a lot of business hype and guru knowledge circulating around right now. However, the true leaders tend to set themselves apart from the rest of the pack, because at the end of the day, the proof is in the pudding.
With so many gurus on the scene, it’s easy to lump them all in the same basket and wonder ‘Who is Nick Vertucci, and why should we listen to him?’ Nick Vertucci is one of the leading real estate experts in the United States, and one of the most sought after motivational speakers on the investment scene. However, this wasn’t always the case.
Vertucci was raised by a single mother, after his father passed away when Vertucci was just 10-years-old. In the years that followed his father’s passing, Vertucci saw his mother struggle financially while holding down multiple jobs. At age 18, Vertucci found himself living out of his car, and knew he needed to do something drastic to secure his own financial future.
Several years later, Vertucci’s future seemed assured after he launched his own computer accessories company and rose to multi-millionaire status. The dream wasn’t meant to last, however, as Nick’s business went under around the time of the 2001 dot com bubble burst. Suddenly, he found himself in millions of dollars worth of debt and he lost nearly everything he had invested himself in.
At this time, Vertucci joined the police force, where he remained for the next 18 years. During this phase of his life, he began to refocus himself on attaining financial freedom. It was this desire that brought him to real estate investing. He enrolled himself in a real estate investment training program, and spent 10 years studying everything he could about the real estate investment process.
Under the guidance of mentors and business partners, Vertucci was able to find success as a seminar educator working for this same real estate investment training program. By this time, Vertucci had developed his mindset formula, which he used alongside the cash flow system he developed, and were utilizing these processes in tandem to spread his knowledge and business process to his students, helping them to achieve millionaire success alongside his own.
Failure was about to find Vertucci for a second time, however, which occurred after his business partners decided to drop him from their team unexpectedly, believing that what Vertucci was bringing to the table was indispensable. Again, Vertucci found himself embarrassed and depressed, overwhelmed by failure and the taunting the was receiving from his former colleagues.
Eventually, Vertucci decided that he was going to take his knowledge and his passion for teaching and strike out on his own–he developed his very own real estate investment training academy called the Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy, which has since become incredibly well-known and highly regarded within the real estate industry.
What is the NVREA?
Vertucci’s academy provides all of the tools and information necessary for an individual to become a successful real estate investor, even if they are entering the market at the ground level. This training program presents students with the solutions to the most common and difficult problems that real estate investors face.
While Vertucci and other established real estate investors often had to learn from their mistakes, Vertucci’s academy attempts to guide students down a proper, outline path, which circumvents the otherwise inevitable pitfalls of the real estate investment process. Today, Vertucci’s academy has proven itself successful, as it has helped millions of students find success within this industry.
Vertucci provides a snippet of his comprehensive training program via live seminars, which expose students to the basics of real estate investing. In doing so, Vertucci’s seminars feature a panel of real estate industry experts, and shows students about to initiate a real estate transaction, and carry it through the flipping process all the way through to selling the property.
This academy also helps students locate private investors via networking and a built-in funding matching program. The full program provides students with a depth of insight around the topics of contract flipping, property repair, rentals, commercial investments, and protecting assets. This program has received raving reviews from former students, who mostly herald Vertucci as an inspirational source of knowledge.
However, Vertucci is keen to point out that this program is not designed to produce results overnight. Unless a student is dedicated and consistent with the process and their own learning journey, they will not be able to achieve maximum success. Despite this, Vertucci is adamant on providing seminar attendees with value. Although portions of his training program are only available to those who pay, Vertucci says he doesn’t believe in high-pressure sales gimmicks. Instead, Vertucci lets the information sell itself.
Beyond the free live seminars, Vertucci’s training program also incorporates a hands-on training experience via a bus tour program. Nick’s bus tour gives students the in-depth information and expertise insight that provides them with the highest value. Vertucci’s team of trainers are industry professionals who have amassed years of experience and leveraged their knowledge to achieve millionaire status.
