Nick DiNardo is an entrepreneur, consultant and public speaker focused on adversity, personal growth and education. Throughout his career he has interviewed hundreds of experts on overcoming adversity, dealing with trauma and stress, and the crucial role that this plays in our cognitive development and education.
Nick has dealt with adversity his entire life. After his parents separated when he was seven years old, Nick went from living the American Dream to sleeping on the floor of a one room apartment and sharing a kitchen with 17 people. He managed to earn a football scholarship to Wesleyan University (CT) and ruptured the tendons in his knee in his senior year. He has started multiple companies, most of which failed.
Time and time again he faced adversity–and continued to grow as a result. It is these lessons that led Nick to write The Game of Adversity, which distills cutting-edge psychological research as well as wisdom from Seneca, Viktor Frankl and Vince Lombardi, and turns it into actionable advice.
Nick is the producer and host of two podcasts: the Meet Education Project and the Sweet Adversity Podcast. He writes more about adversity and personal growth at NickDiNardo.com. He lives in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, with his wife Sarah.
