Nick’s Story
Investing in Balance
Nick originally studied economics. Out of school, his misconception that working on interesting projects meant working 80 or 100 hours a week kept him in the finance world. After discussion with friends, Nick came to Backcountry to short-circuit that path. Now he works with great people—and has been empowered to make decisions since his start.
