Nester, from drugs and felonies to becoming a successful influencer.

Logan Nester; Online Influencer, Certified Personal Trainer, Strength Coach, and Heart Attack Survivor.

Today’s Episode Summary:

Today’s guest, Logan Nester, is a 25 years old online influencer who is making lives better through his content and also generating a handsome amount of money from his influencing business. But 9 years ago, Logan was a real trouble maker. He was involved in many felonies - faced near-to-death experiences many times- and was also taking heavy drugs. Throughout his previous life, he did nothing other than doing dangerous and crazy things but now he has set boundaries for himself and has decided not to go that path ever again. Today Logan is sharing with us his life story so that listeners - particularly youngsters- could reap some useful lessons from his experiences.

The story of Logon begins with his neglected childhood…. Logan was born in a family where both of his parents were drug addicts and they had no interest in their relationship but they were living together just for the sake of Logan. At the age of 6, Logan’s parents finally got divorced and Logan started living with his mother for some time and then shifted back to his father’s home. He kept switching between his mother’s and father’s home but his parents were busy doing their own thing and they were not really involved in the upbringing of Logan. However, Logan worked along with his father and learned many things from him. When he grew up he became involved in many negative things and became a real trouble maker.

During his teenage, he was sexually abused by his cousin. At the age of 14, he appeared in court due to a harassment charge, and he also started doing heavy cocaine and heroin and started smoking weed also. After some time, Logan had no more money so he started robbing people every night to buy more dosages of drugs. He was also hanging out with people who were either drug addicts or dealing with drugs. He was a sincere friend but his friends robbed him several times and broke his trust and that’s why he carved the tattoo “Stay True” on his body. He was also messing with dangerous people and faced near to death experiences many times. And that’s not it. The list of his troubles goes on…

While going through the dangerous track of drugs and robbery, Logan got arrested after long hide-and-seek, but the court saw huge potential in Logan and gave him a second chance to improve his life, and sent him to a habilitation center. Logan's troubles didn't stop here. He also did some troubles during his rehab program –like sneaking out of rehab- but he graduated successfully in the end.  After coming out of the rehab Logan started doing a job. At the age of 23, Logan got involved in a serious relationship with a 44 years old woman, who was his construction site manager, but after 1 year, he broke up with her. Then he started recreating his life by abandoning his old life. He started bodybuilding and then started his online influencing business during Covid.

Recently, in January 2021, Logan had a severe heart attack which changed the course of his life and career and set him on the path to reinvent and rediscover himself. Now Logan cannot do a lot of things he used to do to build his body but Logan is very hopeful about life and says that “it's not a life-ending experience; it's just a different route that I have to take now. I am hoping it's going to be better”.

Logan is training and influencing youngsters. He is growing every day to become more and influencing people positively. He says that he spent his life doing things that he shouldn’t be doing but now he is trying his best to spread positivity. He wants people to learn from his experience and avoid the mistakes which he did in his life.
