Nate started out as a kid with a dream: to become a pilot. Throughout his life he worked towards that goal, but he always had something else going on, whether it was mowing lawns or working with Amway. He read RDPD, educated himself and he stayed on the lookout for his next venture. He went to an event put on by Grant Cardone and met Russell Brunson.
