How To Pull Yourself Out of The Unlucky Sperm Club with Nelson Tressler

Episode: 126

Nelson Tressler

Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with their guest Nelson Tressler, as they speak about how a man can succeed, on his own terms, despite struggles on top of struggles. Nelson's story gives testament to how we don't always have to end up the way we started, a lesson that many people may take through multiple different ways.

 

Getting held back in school with dyslexia was one challenge Nelson had to face; finishing college was another thing and a rather hard one for him to do. But after finishing college, Nelson grew the desire to overcome more of whatever life throws at him in his journey of emotional recovery and development; later on, he continued to become a broker, businessman, and author.

 

In this episode, Nelson imparts a handful of lessons on perception, the mindset your goals need, and what he thinks people can learn from if they want to move on to a better place in their lives – be it physical or mental. Nelson believes that our life is not our circumstances; it is what we do in those circumstances that make our lives.

 

About Nelson Tressler:

 

Nelson was born to a teenage mother in rural central Pennsylvania and has never known his biological father. He was the oldest of five children and grew up in poverty under an alcoholic and abusive stepfather.

 

Nelson lost track of the number of times that he went to bed hungry. Far from an idyllic childhood, Nelson worked on his uncle's garbage truck during the summer and holidays to help provide for his family. Once Nelson got his driver's license, a local construction company hired him to work until he graduated from high school.

 

In high school, Nelson was a three-sport athlete. He still holds several school records and was voted the most athletic member of his senior class. Once he graduated, he went on to play college football at St. Francis University.

 

After his freshman year of college, it was very evident that he could not afford to continue. He then joined the United States Air Force on the G.I. bill. He trained as an electronic and navigation technician on the E.F.–111 aircraft. Nelson served in Saudi Arabia and Turkey during his four years of military service.

 

He attended multiple universities during his service and received his associate's degree. After being honorably discharged from the Air Force, he attended the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. He started a window cleaning business to pay for school and support his young family.

 

After graduating with a Finance degree from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, Nelson went to work for Grubb &; Ellis Commercial real estate. Nelson and his team were the top producing team in the nation on several occasions while working at Grubb & Ellis commercial real estate.

 

Newmark Grubb Knight Frank later purchased the company. Nelson has consistently been one of the nation's top-producing brokers, and his team has been the top-producing retail team in the Las Vegas market for an impressive 19 straight years. In 2008, Nelson was named to Las Vegas' prestigious "40 under 40" list.

 

He has personally developed commercial projects over $25 million. Additionally, during his 20+ year career, Nelson has brokered deals on behalf of his clients over $750 million.

 

Nelson has founded several successful businesses, including one of the largest chains of children's daycare centers in Las Vegas, which he sold for a profit. He is also the founder of one of the nation's largest privately held pet resorts he recently sold.

 

Nelson is currently acting as a partner in multiple business ventures ranging from tanning salons and family fun centers to a landscaping rock supplier. He is also involved in numerous real estate ventures, including apartment buildings and commercial real estate developments.

 

His team continues to be the top retail producing team for Newmark Grubb Knight Frank in Las Vegas, Nevada.

My name is David Pere, I am an active duty Marine, and have realized that service members and the working class use the phrase "I don't get paid enough" entirely too often. The reality is that most often our financial situation is self-inflicted. After having success with real estate investing, I started From Military to Millionaire to teach personal finance and real estate investing to service members and the working class. As a result, I have helped many of my readers increase their savings gap, and increase their chances of achieving financial freedom! - Click here to SUBSCRIBE: https://bit.ly/2Q3EvfE to the channel for more awesome videos!
