Nick Wolny is an editor, journalist, and consultant based in Los Angeles. He is currently a senior editor at CNET, the finance columnist for Out magazine, and a small business owner of seven years.

Reporting and commentary focus on the following categories:

🏳️‍🌈 LGBTQ+ — With $3.8 trillion in purchasing power, we’re not going anywhere. As anti-LGBTQ+ legislation and vitriol ramp up, it’s important to know the facts and what consumers should understand now.

💻 Technology — From AI to social media to data security, technology touches every aspect of our lives. Plain-English explanations are the way forward—and they can be pretty fun, too.

💸 Finance — Personal finance is ultimately personal, even when it’s controversial. Human-interest reporting on both money and commerce provide insight into what motivates us as consumers.

Nick’s Core Message

In business, the only constant is change. Fortunately, the tools that successful creatives have mastered — deep focus, deliberate practice, and how to perform under pressure — can help you “futureproof” your potential and break records in a digital world.

A professional musician by training, Nick Wolny’s low-income upbringing, self-taught editorial career path, and current efforts as an LGBTQ+ journalist and entrepreneur enable fresh perspectives. But if we look closer at our own lives and histories, we realize that we too have a special recipe of experiences that make us one of a kind.

From media moderating to fireside chat — and either in the room or via Zoom — Nick can bring your next gathering to life. Get in touch to learn more about how to work with Nick.
