You Are Not Unlucky, You Just Make Poor Choices with Nelson Tressler

Nelson Tressler

Nelson Tressler is a motivational speaker, author of The Unlucky Sperm Club, and founder and CEO of IGOTSMARTER: Goals Elevated. Tressler was the first person in his family to graduate college, joined the US Airforce, became the top worldwide producer for the top commercial real estate company, and started over 10 businesses. The goal of IGOTSMARTER is to change the world, one person and one goal at a time. The company implements strategies Nelson learned throughout his grueling childhood experience. He uses goal-setting and personal development techniques to transform the lives of struggling people.

Nelson’s experience with adversity has allowed him to rise above his circumstances and make a name for himself. His grandmother’s belief in him fueled his ambition and he never backed down, despite what everyone thought of him. Tressler stresses the importance of not letting what someone else thinks of you determine your future. You are in charge of who you become, not who other people think you’ll become.
