What People Are Saying...


In an era where info is everywhere...

and we're expecting to do everything, Nick Snapp decided it was time to figure out how to focus on what works, and eliminate the noise. He realized that no matter what the online gurus tell you, there will never be a one-size-fits-all strategy, and there had to be a way quickly test and validate ideas and marketing strategies online.  Through countless iterations, Nick and his team developed Snappier, and eventually re-branded The Make it Snappy Experiment podcast to follow suit (formerly The Make it Snappy Productivity Show).

Snappier leverages technology and behavioral science to build profitable online courses and products.

Nick earned a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from Union College and MBA from the University of Florida.  He obtained Lean/Six Sigma and Project Management Professional (PMP) certifications, and worked 14 years in the nuclear and phosphate industries, where he led teams as a capital project manager, responsible for multi-million-dollar projects. 

Nick is best known as the atypical-engineer host of The "Make it Snappy" Productivity Show podcast (and all things "snappy," for that matter). His faith fuels his love for people, culture, language learning, and his passion for "tough love" and living deliberately.  He and his wife, Nazach have three boys, Carter (8) and Ethan (6), and Nico (2).

The five years leading up to my leap into entrepreneurship was mixed with both passion and uncertainty. I was on quite a journey of inward and outward reflection, intense contemplation, and prayer. To be transparent, it was a little all over the board for me: from baby do-it-yourself programs and videos, to Movember mustache campaigns, to international living. 

I’ve put my family through a lot of uncertainty by remaining at a crossroads in my life, and refusing to commit to a direction.

My struggle was that although I always knew I wanted to do something on my own, my intentions and drivers for these desires were off base.

I was having trouble finding something that fit my personality and skill set because I was too focused on what I thought people wanted to see, and ignored what I was passionate about.

Further, I was too centered on what I would gain from the experience, in lieu of thinking about how my business would help people achieve their own vision.

Despite the epic failures, I wouldn’t change this experience if I could.

2015 has been a pivotal year for me: I left my perfectly comfortable and prosperous career as an engineer/project manager for a Fortune 500 company, and took a dive into the world of engineering consulting.

Surprisingly, it was a much easier transition than I expected, and I've have been blessed with more business than I ever imagined possible in such a short period of time.  

Yet, after spending four weeks away from my family on a project in Los Angeles, I realized that my family was more important than my aspirations.

Through further reflection and prayer, I started working with a business coach, Greg Faxon, who helped me drill down to the core of what I enjoy doing and talking about; what I’ve been told I’m skilled at, and most importantly, what I felt could be used to help people not only in business, but in life.

Productivity was my answer!

I’ve always been good at getting things done, and I love the challenge of figuring out how to get the RIGHT things done. Podcasting is my forum of choice, and the tool I’ll use to convey my message of hope and purpose.

I believe I'm the only Productivity Strategist who combines productivity with purpose for entrepreneurial Moms and Dads who want their time back. We’re living in an era where overtime is expected, and overwhelm is normal, and it’s time to for a change!

If this message resonates with you, please join me on this exciting journey! I look forward to seeing you on my show...

"I stayed organized for other people in my corporate job for years.  Then I started my own business, had a baby, and took on some part time work. I felt scattered and foggy when it came to getting anything done. I was so frustrated because I had been the organized person for so many years - why couldn't I do it for myself?

Nick has coached me through finding a process to plan my day, my week, and my month to spend time on the RIGHT things that will help me achieve my lifestyle goals. He helped me develop my strategy to accomplish small and big tasks for all aspects of my life, not just my business. I have more on my plate now than I ever have had, yet I get more done in far less time thanks to all the tools and strategies he has shared with me."


- Inga Varney, Sommelier (Wine Star Services - Scottsdale, AZ)

"My biggest challenge was striking a balance between developing our future business focus vs. the core activities that keep us profitable. Nick helped me recognize the need to keep top of mind, and be guided by, the core business philosophy in everything we do.  Nick was able to structure our session to quickly get to the issues at hand.  His preparation, organization, and attention to detail were impressive.  His passion to help others is genuine and undeniable, and his experience in workflow/process efficiency transcends all industries.  I'd highly recommend Nick to anyone needing to unlock their potential and begin achieving results, no matter what business/profession you're in, or how small or large your stake.

- Dan Brainard, Real Estate Broker (Brainard Realty - Tampa, FL)



"I was challenged with not being able to weed out distractions and focus enough on what’s important during the day.  Nick gave me tools for identifying the most important tasks and moving them to the start of the day.  This has helped me lock in time to get the important things done without distractions and off the checklist.  Also, I signed up for an accountability site he recommended to track my referral generation activities.  I would recommend talking to Nick about how to make the most productive use of your time."

- Gilbert Bennett, Mortgage Loan Originator (My Easy Mortgage - Tampa, FL)


"I was working 12 to 14 hours per day, 7 days per week and burning out fast.  Everything always felt like a priority, including email.  Nick showed me how to block out specific parts of my day and week for certain projects.  Now I have days scheduled for photo shoots, another for editing, and a time slot every day to respond and check my email!  Nick gave me the big “a-ha” moment I needed and I feel empowered to lay out the structure my business to get me through my super-busy season."

- Kenzie Shores, Photographer & Mom of Three (Kenzie Shores Photography - St. Petersburg, FL)


"I enjoy working with Nick.  He helped me see the holes in my business and suggested strategies to help me be more productive and effective.  Nick is very patient and his follow-up skills are amazing.  I recommend meeting with him because you'll definitely benefit from his coaching sessions.

- Marlo Laney, Photographer & Co-working Connector (MLP Studios - Tampa, FL)
