Finding Your Purpose and Taking The Leap | Nick Sagar | Ryan Nile Show

Ep. 77

This is Nick Sagar’s most in-depth interview he has ever done


This podcast is all about Powerful Life Stories that Motivate & Inspire and todays episode is exactly that. Im joined by Nick Sagar, a british born Actor based out of Los Angeles who you may have seen in movies and shows like Tyler Perrys The haves and the have nots, Shadowhunters, Queen of the south, Supergirl, Ill Manors & The Princess Switch with Vanessa Hudgens on Netflix


I got to sit down with Nick to explore his incredible journey into acting. We also happen to be cousins, so naturally, we get DEEP!


This episode is all about finding your purpose, taking the leap and going with the flow… which Nick has continuously done. We recorded this in LA 2 hours before my flight departed back to UK..but we still had a great wide-ranging relaxed conversation I’m sure you’ll get a lot from.

One Sentence Can Change Your Life! Curbing Male Suicide with Leon Lewis, founder of The Man Talk

Ep. 75

The Man Talk is a platform for elevating and uplifting men through conversation. Leon Lewis with co-founder Terroll Lewis, started the Man Talk in early 2019 with an event that brought 350 men from all walks of life, together with a set of panelists to discuss through topics and subjects men don't usually speak about together.


I sat down with Leon to discusses why he started The Man Talk and what the effect has been so far. We also explored what it was like growing up with a schizophrenic father & keeping it a secret from friends for years, dropping out of school, the power of audiobooks, accountability and so much more.


A big goal for The Man Talk is to help curb male suicide, and especially at this time of year where loneliness and depression is especially high. If you are affected, please use the information below:

Turning Waste Materials Into Streetwear with Founder of 10T, James Marshall

Ep. 72

Red Bull Amaphiko Academy is an 8 day course for grassroots social entrepreneurs in the UK who are making a positive difference in their community. The Academy aims to give them the inspiration, mentorship and practical skills and tools they need to take themselves and their projects to the next level.


There were 15 social entrepreneurs taking part in the academy, and I was lucky enough to feature a couple of them on my show to discuss their projects and purpose.


In todays episode I sit down with James Marshall founder of 10T which creates cool clothes from old tents left at festivals.


The project tries to address the wasted textile problem throughout different industries in the UK by developing these wasted materials into streetwear. 10T’s first project this year we are collecting tents left at music festivals and developing these into jackets, bum bags and bucket hats. It was estimated that 250,000 tents were left at music festivals in 2018 alone and 90% of this material goes to landfill and incinerator. This material can still be used and the majority of the tents left have only be used for the festival and the material is of good quality. James studied a Masters degree in Environmental Sustainability and saw the figures for textile waste in the UK. he has also been involved in fashion his whole life. He worked in fashion retail for 5 years and he was a model for Established London for a year so he always had a love fashion and he knew he was interested in the industry. This is why he came up with the concept of 10T, to combine his knowledge on waste management and create a clothing company.

Changing The Future Of Young People with Alvin Owusu

Ep. 71

Red Bull Amaphiko Academy is an 8 day course for grassroots social entrepreneurs in the UK who are making a positive difference in their community. The Academy aims to give them the inspiration, mentorship and practical skills and tools they need to take themselves and their projects to the next level.


There were 15 social entrepreneurs taking part in the academy, and I was lucky enough to feature a couple of them on my show to discuss their projects and purpose.


Today I sit down with Alvin Owusu, founder of The Advantage group which is changing the future of young people from underrepresented backgrounds


Alvin grew up in Hackney (‘disadvantaged’ borough), in a single parent and low income household. The triple threat. However, everything Alvin lacked monetarily, he made up for in drive and raw ambition.. The Advantage Group aims to break barriers and transform the Narrative of young people. They provide a number of fun and impactful workshops tailored to the needs of specific groups of young people. This has been done through their 3 day annual academy, their school tour and their year long development programme. They also work closely with small to large organisations to help create pipelines and access for these young people, this helps provide opportunities for young people. In doing this, they have addressed the problem at a very early stage (ages 15-19). They will begin creating a online school planner to distribute to schools which incorporates their sessions. Often planting a seed that will inevitably be watered as they progress through later education/training. We have also addressed the systemic issues that result in the employability issues faced by these groups.
