“Nick Grantham’s new book `You’re Hired” in a nutshell is the wake up call that every aspiring strength and condition coach needs. This book sets the tone right from the beginning with the profound message of `You deserve nothing’ which may come as a reality check to some coaches coming out of college with degrees but no experience expecting to walk into employment. This book tells the story of Nick’s path from feeling he didn’t belong in a career in the financial services sector to where he is today, most importantly outlining the proactive steps he took along the way. The interactive nature of the book allows each aspiring coach to identify their individual take home messages by identifying areas which they need to improve upon.

Nick gives a step-by-step guide of how to create your own opportunities and how to stand out from the crowd, highlighting that preparation and experience are two of the main aspects in getting to exactly where you want to be. He goes onto explain how to differentiate yourself from been just a good coach to becoming a great coach and how important it is to get your foot in the door and keeping in there.

A message that has stuck with me from this book is “The only place where “success ” comes before “work” is in the dictionary” emphasizing Nick’s point of not been afraid to get your hands dirty”.Brian Hughes
