About Me

Hi there! I’m Nick, a single Xennial dad, juggling fatherhood and entrepreneurship while trying to become the best guy I can be. I created the Define My Day Planner & Journal to help me stay on top of my work life, but it turned out to be a lot more than that. It’s now become a journey of healing, personal growth, and trying to keep my plants alive (just kidding, but not really).

My top priority is raising my two amazing boys to become the best, well-balanced men they can be. Along the way, I’m also working on building healthy new relationships, habits, and routines for myself and learning every day. I believe we’re all on this journey together, and I’m certainly no guru—I’m growing and learning right alongside you.

I’m the proud owner of Defined Life, where we help people align their daily actions with their goals and passions so they can be their most authentic selves. Our motto, “Fuel Your Passion. Define Your Life,” is something I try to live by—even when it’s a challenge to figure out what your passion is.

When I’m not busy being a dad or running my business, I love writing blog posts about overcoming hardship, building healthy relationships, productivity, mindfulness, living a balanced life, and overall health and well-being.

So, join me on this journey as we heal, grow, and maybe even find that elusive work-life balance. I’m here for you, and I’m here with you. Keep moving forward.



Define My Day has changed my life by greatly reducing my anxieties. Despite my devotion to task and calendar apps, I always felt I was wasting time and wondered if my constant activity was really getting me anywhere.

Define My Day made me more productive by showing me what’s most important to me and giving me a sense of accomplishment.

I have been utilizing the Define My Day journal for over a year now and absolutely love it! I have accomplished so much more with this easy to use tool than I have with any other method in the past. I am a Define My Day lover!!

I was given my first Define My Day Planner as a gift and I immediately loved the concept – it was short, sweet and to the point
