- [05:28] – Worst Entrepreneurial Moment: It was late autumn of 2012, Nicholas had just left the Navy, didn’t have a job, but he thought he had a “brilliant” idea. He lived in a coastal village with 3 yacht mariners within 5 miles, so he thought he had a market. He spent time to set up his business and offered his services.
