I am Nelson Stryker, Tech Entrepreneur, Career Consultant, Life Coach & Youth Motivational Speaker.
Similar to most American's I started out in laboring jobs, followed by retail and shortly after marketing & sales. Most of which were able to provide me enough to get through the college experience. With loans exceeding 50,000.00 in addition to credit card debt made it seem that any dream of mine would have no chance at becoming a reality.
At 19 began my journey in Direct Sales & Network Marketing which helped me obtain a firm foundation for my "Financial Education" in addition to "Personal Development". 3 Years in the journey and 6 jobs in, my business partner and I had a breakthrough thought. In 2009, we began developing one of the worlds first "Smartwatches". Since then, we've built 3 prototypes that are a few short months away from an international distribution contract with 3 provisional patents filed. Our home office is located in the heart of New York City in Midtown Manhattan where we carry out the operations for both our Consulting firm and Technology Development projects.
As a child I lived in many broken homes, going from place to place, in and out of the foster care system, to the middle class areas of Central New Jersey where everyone knew I was an outsider and treated me as such. I was manipulated and bullied throughout both grade school and high school up until sophomore year when I became a football varsity letterman. Sports instilled much of the discipline, competitive nature and assertiveness I possess today while adding a firm foundation that would soon compliment my business skills.
Amongst all the obstacles in my life, I never let them or the people within the obstacles steal my dreams or put me down. If I couldn't build the bridge myself to cross the obstacle, I built the bridge in my mind and continued to keep my eyes on the prize and miraculously the obstacles disappeared.
After being diagnosed with a heart condition Sophomore year of college my dream of playing professional football diminished but determined to succeed I have not stopped to ensure that my "replacement sport" my businesses, become Fortune 100 companies. To date I have dedicated my life to personal and professional development while helping others find their passion by offering my experience and expertise to aspiring entrepreneurs and beyond all over the world.
