On today’s episode of Just the Tips, we have an amazing guest in Nicholas Bayerle. Nicholas is the founder of Billion Dollar Body, the Billion Dollar Brotherhood, and the Three-Dimensional Businessman. No one is more committed to helping people improve themselves not just through fitness, but in business and in relationships. He’s the total package. Nicholas is a good friend of mine, and a mediocre friend of Dean’s, and this a great episode for anyone looking for that extra boost to get them to take the next step in their lives or careers.

The three-dimensional businessman

Nicholas has individually coached 600 clients over the course of five years, so when he came up with the idea of the three-dimensional businessman, he didn’t pull it out of thin air. He looked at the clients he’d been helping and realized that “everything was out of order.” The top three priorities, he says, should be health, wealth and relationships. And many of the problems people run into come up because their fifth, sixth or seventh priorities are actually taking precedence over the top ones. We cover all the bases here at Just the Tips.

Without human investment there is no human appreciation

Nicholas told us about how when he was 13 he had a falling out with his father. And he had, up until that point in his life, mostly seen his own value as filtered through his dad’s approval. After that, he gained a lot of weight, started failing at school and after school continued to run into problems. But as he says, you can’t teach what you haven’t lived, and so he’s been able to get himself out of that bad mindset. His first step was getting his health in order, because the fact that he wasn’t taking care of himself was directly related to letting himself get overweight. As he says, without human investment there is no human appreciation. If you’re in need of a little inspiration, this is the episode of Just the Tips for you.


We’ve talked on this show a number of times about periods in our lives when we were making a lot of money and were outwardly successful, but feeling incredibly unfulfilled. And Nicholas is right on that wavelength. As he says in this episode, if you’re pursuing wealth at the detriment of personal relationships, or if you’re building your social media presence while you’re sitting next to someone who feels neglected, you’re not necessarily being successful. That’s why Nicholas’s mantra is #SuccessWithoutSacrifice. You have to prioritize the most important things, health and relationships right alongside wealth accumulation. And luckily Nicholas is full of helpful advice on how to get there on this week’s episode of Just the Tips.

Find the person who has what you want

I asked Nicholas to give us the first step for someone who knows they’re priorities are out of whack, but aren’t quite sure how to to get to the next level. And he said something we’ve discussed before on Just the Tips: Peer group. Find the person or people who are doing what you want to do, and surround yourself with them. If you can find those people and pick up their habits and skills, you’ll take that next step. And that’s just the beginning of what Nicholas has to say on this week’s Just the Tips.
