Nile Said, Strategist and Coach

Hi, I’m Nile.

Are you feeling stuck, uninspired, broken down? I’ve been there as well and I’m here to tell you that there is that force within you to get from where you are now to where you want to be.

I’m here to help you GoOneUp. To make it easier to take simple actions and to make incremental slight shifts that move the needle forward propelling you in your desired direction. Everything we do will improve the course of your life.

Feeling stuck or have plateaued?
It’s temporary and it will change on your terms.

We’ve all been there…

You may be in one of two places at this point in your life or business. You’re feeling stuck, uninspired and unsure of your next move.

01. Not sure where to start.

You’re overwhelmed with where to start. With all the moving parts and complexity, getting clarity is a real struggle.

02. Keep trying new things and when honest with yourself, you don’t feel like you’re gaining ground.

Your whole-hearted and good intentions keep reaping weak results. You think you’re focused on the right things, yet you still feel discouraged.

It doesn’t have to be this way.


A little about my seasons and paths

…but now I know there’s a better way.

I built a multi-million dollar business from zero. To be successful, I thought I had to push myself to the edge… until I fell over. But, now I know there’s a better way.

For most of my life, I’ve studied what makes people tick. So, becoming a coach was a natural path for me, and when I combined personal development coaching with fitness, things really took off.

I was capable of doing both, and I was good at it.

Then in 2010, I had the great opportunity to build the Canadian ecommerce and fulfillment operation for an international fitness brand, and with my experience in marketing and building digital businesses, I jumped on it.

I was capable of doing this too.

I started with just a domain name and quickly built the business generating millions in revenue.

No one was going to outwork me. I’d pull multiple consecutive all-nighters and work up to 100 hours a week. I ran the ecommerce business, plus coaching, and in the meantime, I also opened a fitness studio.

I was still doing it myself because I could… I knew I could get it done right, and teaching someone else would take more time than just doing it myself. Plus, I knew how to build effective systems and processes to take off some of the load.

…but now I know there’s a better way.

Capacity was gone

I could do anything that had to be done… and it was a lot to manage.

I ignored the signs that things weren’t great… relationships were impacted, my ability to communicate was impeded and my overall ability to interact with the real world was a great challenge. And even though I was tired I couldn’t sleep well…  yet was still driven.

But then, things changed even more… changes in the US-Canadian exchange rate, plus changes in the market impacted the business, and there was nothing I could do about it.

Eventually, the brand I was the distributor for took over the operation. Suddenly, the business was gone, and it all came to a sudden stop.

For years, I’d been pushing myself to the edge… to the edge of my experience, to the edge of my talent, to the edge of what I thought could be done.

I had pushed myself so far… and once that business stopped, I collapsed.

Now I couldn’t do anything. I couldn’t think. I couldn’t complete sentences. I couldn’t be around people… much less work on my other businesses. Every minute of every day I was gripped by an intense, crushing pressure all around me.

I started to see what I’d done to myself… I had the capability to heal myself, build businesses, be a good father, and coach my clients… but I destroyed my capacity to do any of those.

This was what I’d been missing as a driven entrepreneur. I’d been focused on capability… new skills, new problems to solve, new challenges to take on.

But, because I wasn’t caring for myself, I used up all of my capacity.

I had the capability to be a great father, but I fell short of the capacity to show up as effectively as I wanted to.

I had the capability to run my other businesses, but for months I only had the capacity to wake up, make my bed, and wash up.

The always-on mindset I lived by… and run my business with… destroyed me.

I had maxed myself out.

It took me 2.5 years to rebuild the capacity I needed to match my capability.


and now can share it with you.

You might have the capability to do anything, but without the capacity to match, you won’t.

That’s why today, my mission is to help driven people build the capacity to live a fulfilled life at the full measure of their capability.

I’m the place where people go to refill their cup, so they have the capacity to be that unbelievable partner, parent, friend, entrepreneur, volunteer, and professional they have the capability to be.

I am a warning sign from a future you can avoid. I’ve been to the edge and over it. You don’t want to be where I was.

What I do isn’t for everyone. Some people have to see over the edge for themselves.

But, for people who want to stop feeling trapped, stuck, always just a bit behind at work… and always a little short-tempered, impatient, and absent at home, I can help in two ways. First, I can help you build the systems and processes you need in your business to give you back time and capacity.

Then, I help you develop the mindsets and personal strategies you need to be at your best at work, at home, and with friends.

Here’s the biggest lesson I learned… you might have the capability to do anything, but without the capacity to match, you won’t.


It takes just one slight shift, one small tweak to change the course of your life.

It’s been shown time and time again — I want to be that support that proves it again for you.

I have had the good fortune of having Nile Said use his many coaching skills to help me frame the nuts and bolts of a Wellness workshop which was held early in 2020. (Prior to Covid-19).

Nile is very enthusiastic and creative in respect to generating ideas, is an excellent listener and created a very comfortable environment for beneficial dialogue. He follows up with his part of the working plans that was established in our consultations.

Nile understands how business work and has extensive experience in several different companies both large and smaller. He is able to coach and guide individuals through the many ins and outs of business development and business evolution.

I would highly recommend Nile as a competent business coach for your business development and business adventures. You will not regret your choice. Now go ahead and seek his counsel!

Coach Nile, has the ability to take any negative thoughts and encounters and approach it in an inspiring and positive manner. He is an expert in his field and has an exuberant personality making it easier to engage with him and seek help. He's knowledgeable with resourceful solutions. He's passionate about his clients and really listens to understand them.

- Neda S.

I think what makes Nile's listening ear so special is that it listens completely, sincerely, and without judgment. My personal experiences working with Nile have shown me his approach to a range of scenarios. When faced with adversity, Nile demonstrated poise and humility. When faced with a seemingly insurmountable task, he broke it down into achievable pieces and completed what he set out to do. Because he's been in those situations, he was able to help guide me through similar situations that I faced as well.

He is, without question, one of the kindest and most hard-working people I know. I am lucky to know Nile and to be able to contact him for both personal and professional consulting.

- Justin Silver
Project Manager

I highly recommend Nile to anyone looking for a coach. In the short time we have worked together, we have had some thought provoking conversations and Nile has given me a higher level of self awareness. He creates a positive, comfortable environment and is willing to support my goals.

His endless knowledge in the fitness field is impressive, as well as being knowledgeable with lifestyle & nutrition.

His enthusiastic and honest approach is 100%!

Nile deserves more than just a “few word” review or a star rating.

I met Nile when I was in a mentor and educator role only to instantly realize that he was FAR beyond a mentor himself because he craved knowledge and loved being a student.

Being a coach, mentor, entrepreneur, husband, father to his high standard was all because of one trait, Nile listened to his students, clients, family, and mentors.

I was taught an invaluable lesson from Nile. Instead of saying “here is what I want”, he would always ask “how can I help you attain those goals. Can you teach me to do what you have done, are you willing to accept my coaching and help.”

It was a shift from a one way instruction to a two way team work with each individual.

Nile has an absolute passion for mentoring and leadership, as well as being right by your side.

- Tony Witt
Director of Innovation

As my coach, Nile has been my biggest supporter and cheerleader along my personal journey. He has helped me find clarity through connecting with my inner voice and challenging my viewpoints. He has reminded me how to dream and encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone to reach for what really lights up my soul. Nile is committed as a coach and invested in uncovering the best YOU to shine bright so you can share your gifts with the world. I’m truly grateful for this experience with him.
