Synopsis

No matter the industry or size of the business, entrepreneurs and small business owners everywhere face the same issue: financial uncertainty. This feeling of uncertainty comes from a mix of anxiety and powerlessness, and it’s compounded by a tendency to make decisions based on anything other than getting closer to the things we actually value.

This book will lay out the 3 reasons why some people seem to win all the time while others don’t, the 4 Commandments for achieving financial certainty, the algorithms necessary to make your new operating system work, and the steps to identifying our priorities and fully funding them on our ideal timeline. This methodology includes:

How to identify personal biases and evolve past limiting binary thinking
Actionable steps for turning goals into accessible checkpoints and allocating assets accordingly
Useful decision-making frameworks
Engineering your cash flow and aligning your bank account with your priorities

Dan Nicholson graduated Summa Cum Laude from Seattle University with emphases in both Accounting and E-Commerce Information Systems. Upon graduation, Dan was selected out of a pool of nominees from the nation’s top 50 accounting programs for an exclusive fellowship with the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB), where he helped write a national accounting standard. Since then, Dan has worked in finance and accounting roles at Clark Nuber, UPS, WaMu, as well as Deloitte and Touche’s Audit and Enterprise Risk Services practices where he was primarily responsible for auditing both the financial statements and IT internal controls around the Treasury cycle at Microsoft. Dan has been named a top 40 accountant under 40 (globally) four times over.

Advance praise

“Over the last few decades, I have helped gold-medal athletes, world champions, and Fortune 500 CEOs get clarity on their goals, create certainty around achievement of the outcome, and collapse the timeframe to get there as fast as possible. In Rigging the Game, Dan Nicholson has masterfully broken down how to get clarity around your personal definition of wealth, certainty that you achieve it, and collapse the time so it happens faster than you ever thought possible.”
- Dr. Jeff Spencer

“As a business professor, executive coach and philanthropist I have read over 2k books. Most are touted as the next big thing that is going "revolutionize the field of (fill in the blank)." Every so often one comes along that truly changes the landscape. "Rigging the Game" is the real deal." It contains theories that are on par with anything from the top business schools, yet it goes much further with providing actual steps you can take to ensure success in your business and your life.

Like any skillful surgeon uses a scalpel; Dan Nicholson uses his The Four Commandments of Wealth Building with precision and effectiveness that can restore your financial health.

The fix is in, and Rigging the Game is a real winner!”
- Randy Massengale.

"Dan Nicholson has created the single most powerful operating system to help business owners get what they want out of life. I use it and teach it to all of my clients"
- Nic Peterson
