Mr. Nute sold businesses that reached $32 million and $45 million in revenue, has employed hundreds of individuals who successfully serviced several hundred clients. He and his wife live in Florida, where both enjoy the thrill of fishing out on the open ocean for fun and competitively.

What are some things that you love?

In my spare time, I love being out on the Keys, fishing with Heidi. She is quite an accomplished angler, having caught a world-record tarpon a couple of years ago. She’s gotten me into competitions over the last few recent years, and I have to say – we’ve done really well! We have had some incredible teachers who helped us along the way. There’s nothing quite as rewarding as reeling in a record-setting fish after battling it for a while! It’s relaxing, and helps us spend time together.

What’s your favorite type of food?

Living in the Florida Keys, we’re spoiled to have some incredible seafood. I love enjoying our fresh-caught fish, and also visiting some of the great restaurants around Islamorada and Key Largo.

What are your aspirations in life?

My life aspirations are to help as many people as possible. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to partner with intelligent, talented people to build successful businesses. One of the axioms I follow regularly is to surround myself with people that work hard and aim high. I believe that if you work hard and focus on bringing value to your clients, good things happen. We have been able to attain a high level of success by staying focused on what matters – helping our clients and providing opportunities for employees to grow.

What’s one thing you’ve learned since you started your career?

Since starting my career, one of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned is that it sometimes takes a lot longer to reach success than you originally had hoped. An analogy that I like to use is like when you feel a strong bite on the fishing rod… Sometimes it takes forty minutes of battling, fighting, and persistence to reel it in. It’s the same way in business – sometimes you’ll see some initial success, but have to keep battling, adjusting, and trying new things in order to reach the revenue target you’re seeking. Regardless of what happens, though – NEVER give up!

What’s one piece of advice you can share with happy wheels demo others?

One piece of advice that I’d like to pass along is that you’ve got to know your numbers. You might be bringing in great revenue, but what is your profit? Some business owners choose to ignore those numbers because they’re afraid of what they’ll see. It’s not just about how much money you bring in, it’s about how much you get to keep. Once you are profitable, you can begin to buy more of your time back. It also allows you to set aside money for new ventures, expansion, and to hire new talent.
