How beating people up taught former MMA fighter Nick Wernimont about entrepreneurship
A former MMA fighter, Wernimont is the founder of Factor 75, a healthy meal delivery service. Our own Mindie Kaplan did happy hour with him to find these four facts and land a few punches for our video.
1. Wernimont started preparing for the ring early on. He was one of Iowa’s premier playground brawlers.
2. He often spends the night at the office. “Owning a business is like having a child … it’s on your mind from the moment you wake until the second you go to sleep.”
3. Beating people up taught him a lot about entrepreneurship. “The hours you put into training every day really give you the discipline [to] build your own business.”
4. He has an endgame: Sell Factor 75, get a ranch in Montana and “live off the radar.”
