Thank you so much for being here. You are awesome!
I am Christos Nikas (aka The professor)
A teacher, content creator, event professional, and graphic designer from Athens-Greece.
The best way to fail is aiming for average
Fed up with seeing so much talent wasted every day, due to a lack of business skills, knowledge, and motivation, I have focused on inspiring & helping talented creatives like yourself, optimize the way they communicate, sell and manage their Instagram, so they can profit more doing what they love.
Wishing and dreaming are never enough. The best way to get anywhere is to start moving.
SO HERE I AM. SHOWING UP. DOING. SHARING. GROWING.
A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND
I used to be living and breathing design.
I ‘ve studied Visual Communication & Design Management, with a postgraduate degree in Computer Graphics & Animation and damn… I loved every single moment coming up with names for companies, designing logos, business cards, brochures, magazine ads, and other marketing material.
My best memories though are being in the classroom, teaching graphic design to young passionate creatives.
Events & conferences
I've been teaching creatives since 2004.
I've been in the event business since 1996 starting as a freelance DJ and then as a small business owner with Showtime, Wedding Republic and MirrorBooth.
In 2017 I’ve decided to stop packing dance floors and focus entirely on managing my two firms but also on sharing my knowledge & experience helping other creative professionals grow their businesses.
This is when the first DJ Convention in Greece was born, followed by several conventions (creative business conference, Wedding Circle, etc) Workshops, and Masterminds.
The Instagram explosion
On December 15, 2019, I decided to shift into English content on Instagram and I fell in love with its power and the magic of community. I had 500 followers then and I'm on my way to 100K by the same date in 2020.
After hours of coaching, several courses, and an insane amount of time studying How Instagram works and Why, I have focused my energy into helping others grow and succeed on this amazing platform
Daily high-value content, a variety of digital products, and coaching
Husband. Father. Student.
When I'm not creating content, teaching, or planning events, I invest my time playing with my baby daughter, taking long walks with my lovely wife/business partner, reading countless books and blogs on Instagram, creative business, communication, sales & marketing, and learning from the best industry educators worldwide, so I can always be able to help you better.
What keeps me focused and motivated!
I firmly believe in the value that comes from the community; the greatness that can be accomplished together with other people, as opposed to the struggle that comes with separation and isolation.
I grind daily trying to motivate wedding professionals to connect with each other, care for one another, help one another, develop work ethics and understand that competition is just a state of mind. There is no competition.
The reason I will never stop sharing and educating is that seeing someone grow, reaching his goals & earn the money he worths, knowing that I was able to be there for him-her, providing something useful and constructive, is what success means to me.
I promise you that every time someone is provoking doubt saying “this can’t be done”, “you can’t charge that much”, “the market here can’t take it”, “there is no way…”, “how the hell are you going to do that”, I’m going to be here (or there) sharing ideas and showing you that there’ s always a way. This is my vision. This is my goal.
This is my job.
WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU
I absolutely enjoy helping other talented and hardworking creative professionals, personal brands, and entrepreneurs -like your audience or yourself- optimize the way they use Instagram, so they can turn their passion into a profitable business.
