LOOK OUT! You're About to Get F**ked!
The 13 Biggest Pitfalls of Business and How to Avoid Them
by Nick Thompson

This book is not for the faint of heart. This book is NOT a feel-good read. This book will teach you how not to get f**ked in business. After twenty years of growth, author Nick Thompson’s company was listed as one of the “Best Places to Work” by Counselor Magazine and obtained Deloitte’s prestigious “Canada’s Best Managed Companies” distinction. Yet, after expanding globally and partnering with a similar business, this hundred million-dollar company suddenly took a drastic turn, losing its employees and customers at a record rate and declared bankruptcy only three years after he exited it on tumultuous terms. It was devastating. Now, after living through hell and back, Nick provides his most valuable lessons through thirteen company pitfalls and how to prevent them. Sharing these dangerous pitfalls and numerous strategies to help business owners avoid his mistakes, from “Everyone believes they deserve what you have,” “Success is the devil’s disguise,” and “Entrepreneurial misconceptions,” he provides the nitty-gritty details of the realities of business. LOOK OUT! You’re about to get F**ked! offers valuable tips, resources, and lessons to help guide beginner and seasoned business owners, executives, and entrepreneurs through the often-unexpected hardships of business life.

With his energy and enthusiasm, Nick brings a new approach to corporate image management, culture development, and strategic enterprise growth. As a co-founder and president of several companies, including Metromedia Marketing Ltd., BrandAlliance Inc., and VEA Office Professionals Inc., Nick now shares his 25+ years of leadership and executive management experience with business owners and professionals across North America. Nick spearheaded organizations that became internationally recognized, providing hundreds of individuals with employment in various locations across the globe. Under his guidance, many of these locations became award-winning businesses, having been listed as “Best Places to Work” by Counselor Magazine, as well as gaining the coveted “National Distributor of the Year” award by the Promotional Products Professionals of Canada. BrandAlliance Inc. also obtained Deloitte’s prestigious “Canada’s Best Managed Companies” distinction several years in a row. Nick’s credentials include being a finalist for the Ernst & Young “Entrepreneur of the Year” award, recognition as one of Business in Calgary’s “Leaders of Tomorrow,” recipient of the “Premier’s Award for Healthy Workplaces,” and has been featured on the cover of a number of commercial and trade publications for his business acumen. He obtained the marketing designation of Master Advertising Specialist and was awarded the first-ever “Humanitarian of the Year” award by the Promotional Products Professionals of Canada for his endless philanthropic contributions. Apart from his entrepreneurial endeavors, Nick is also a Business Execution Specialist with Results Canada Inc. He has served on many Boards, including his past companies, the Provincial and National Boards of the Promotional Products Professionals of Canada, and several not-for-profit enterprises. He is also active in the worldwide Entrepreneurs’ Organization as a member, a coach, and a trainer for their Accelerator program across North America. In his free time, Nick continues to write and publish a number of books on personal and business life lessons. He also enjoys staying active: hiking, running, and playing sports of any kind. He and his wife take great pleasure in travelling, looking for new experiences, and tasting new foods and wines.
