107: Scaling Businesses, Exit Deals, and the 2-Hour Cocktail Party with Nick Gray
Nick Gray is an investor, entrepreneur, and author who has started, scaled and sold multiple businesses.
One of his most successful ventures was Museum Hack, which was his unique approach to offering museum tours for people who hate museum tours. It got into the Inc 5000 as one of the fastest-growing companies in the country. Eventually he struck a 7-figure exit deal, and continues to own 15% of the company.
While Nick could have enjoyed an early retirement, he decided to follow another passion: connecting with people and helping others build personal and professional relationships. After hosting hundreds of parties, he authored The 2-Hour Cocktail Party, which teaches anyone how to build relationships by hosting small gatherings. New York Magazine has described him as “the host of culturally significant parties.”
In this conversation, we go over the lessons he learned from bootstrapping and exiting multiple businesses, why entrepreneurs struggle to find meaning after securing nine-figure exits, and why hosting events is the best way to build your professional network.
Nick’s giving away the first 5 chapters of his book, The 2-Hour Cocktail Party: How to Build Big Relationships with Small Gatherings. The book is designed to show you how throwing small parties in a strategic way can be the easiest method to building your network.
