Nick Laureano Pushing People to Own Their Narratives and Embrace Their Authentic Selves Unapologetically

The world today is one that has forced many people to reduce themselves into less than what or who they are. It takes a strong sense of self-recognition for many people to recognize self-worth, and many people do not have that strong sense . For this reason, 26-year-old actor Nick Laureano is using his platform to foster a sense of self-worth in as many people as he can.

Nick Laureano is an actor and motivational influencer from Brockton, MA, who has spent a good part of his years motivating people to do better for themselves. His primary message is to motivate people to keep writing their script and not allow any doubt to stop them from pursuing the things they believe in.

As someone who has actively pursued his passion and the things he believes in, Nick Laureano believes strongly that it is the best way for anyone to live. “My journey in this life is to be the greatest version of myself while not getting too comfortable as I know life will try to test my ability and judgement. I want to assure others that they can pursue any endeavour they so desire if they just believe and manifest it,” he said.

The Brockton, MA-born actor did not find his purpose in one day. He spent many years enduring and living through sadness. As he put it, “Nobody cares, unfortunately. You just have to work harder and make the best out of your life. Will you now put in all that work and still not do the things you believe in or love? It’s all in your hands.” Coming from a background where he had little to no support, Nick Laureano did a lot of self-reflection and realization within himself to find his purpose, and once he discovered it, he has not looked back.

The desire to inspire spurred him to build his brand “Only the Motivated” through which he sends out motivational content on social media, especially Instagram. He also has merchandise that his audience can buy and wear to remind them of the power instilled in them. “All who come across my content understand that they are going to get pushed in the right direction and I will put hope in their eyes and hearts instead of fear,” he said.

In a few years, Nick Laureano sees his acting career taking off as he becomes a well-known name in the film industry. He also plans to expand his merchandise into a full-fledged clothing brand geared toward inspiring and motivating everyone who comes across the brand. With everything needed for a thriving brand in place, Nick will go into charity to help underprivileged children with food, shelter, and good education. 

“I simply love seeing others win and thrive. We all have to come together and inspire each other, some of us don’t know just how great we really are until someone tells us. I was motivated to improve on my life and still am to this day, I’m not comfortable nor will I be. I have a lot left to prove within myself and push others to be powerful beyond measure along the way,” he declared.Learn more about Nick Laureano on his official website or follow his Instagram page.

Former Actress Turned Momtrepreneur Celebrates the Release of Memoir About the Joys and Hurdles of Motherhood and Entrepreneurship

“Generations have grown up believing in the American Dream—that optimism and hard work will eventually pay off. That’s how author Adrienne Alitowski approached the invention and marketing of her product blankyclip—a cute, useful toy to keep stroller blankets in place. What began as a bright idea turned nightmarish in the face of corporate realities and a global recession. With winning humor and refreshing candor, Alitowski spins a universal cautionary tale about what is and what isn’t in our control. And ultimately, what really matters.”

 -Sheri Holman, Best-Selling Author of The Dress Lodger and Screenwriter for Longmire.

When former actress turned momtrepreneur, Adrienne Alitowski, first ventured into motherhood, she had no idea the adventures that it would come with. From sleepless nights with a newborn to inventing and launching a brand new baby product in stores across the nation, Alitowski knew her story as a new mom and small business owner was unique. 

In her bestselling memoir, Clipped: A mom invents a way to hold herself together just as the world is falling apart, Alitowski takes her readers on an emotional, humorous, and relatable journey through the most transformational moments in her life. 

Clipped starts off with the birth of Adrienne’s son, Eli. She explains that he was a baby who would “only sleep whenever he was on the go” and his eyes were covered, so needless to say, she was constantly pushing a stroller while attempting to keep a blanket expertly positioned over Eli’s stroller.

Alitowski expresses her frustration about the constant adjustments the blanket needed, to stay over her son’s eyes to keep him asleep. Desperate for her baby to get some much-needed sleep and for her to get some sleep herself, Alitowski scoured the internet for something that would hold a blanket to a stroller, to find nothing that met safety requirements and aesthetics. 

“If I could buy so much of what I needed (and so much more that I didn’t) to make this mommy gig go smoothly, why couldn’t I buy a clip that was safe for babies and could keep the darn blanket from falling off the stroller,” she writes.

After searching for days, she realized that the product didn’t exist… yet. 

On a Tuesday in February, while taking her son on a walk, Alitowski realized that just because she couldn’t find the product, that didn’t mean she couldn’t invent it.

From that mindset, the idea for blankyclip was born, and an expedition toward production kicked off. An expedition that would bring heavy discussions of licensing, sales channels, utility patents, and business plans, spanning not only the United States but across the world in Hong Kong and China.

Alitowski recounts her experiences with trying to get blankyclip produced, rejection from potential buyers, and what it was like to be the “little guy” during the Great Recession of 2008. Her pain and frustration are palpable through the words she has carefully chosen to fill her memoir.

Clipped is an honest story filled with contagious passion and fierce determination to produce a product that will make parents’ lives easier. Throughout her memoir, Alitowski expresses her emotions, triumphs, and struggles candidly, which has drawn a diverse audience of all ages to the pages of Clipped.
