Those were the words JW Dicks said to Nick Nanton in 2006 on a road trip home from an NFL game that would lead to the eventual launch of The Celebrity Branding® Agency.
Nick was working for a company that JW was involved with and Nick was telling him how miserable he was at his job when JW said, “you’re fired.”
“Wait… what?” Nick said. “Yea, this isn’t good for either of us,” JW replied. Nick sat there shocked for what felt like an eternity before JW asked: “So, now that you’re not busy…do you want to start a business together?”
