With over 20 years of experience in management, nonprofit, entrepreneurship, management, event planning & management, fundraising, mentorship, and education, Nathan is a humble thought leader visionary with a heart to serve others. He has the breadth and depth of experience needed to quickly understand any business and craft viable customized solutions for each company.
I believe we have to fail forward. However, some have learned to get up and not give up. There’s a market for your dream; even if you have to create it – it exists.
Prior to co-founding NW & Associates in early 2015, Nathan started a nonprofit serving middle and high schools in Vancouver, WA to identify and pursue their passions. In the first year of programming, his organization collaborated in serving over 1,500 youth. His unforeseen success led to national programming with the partnership with Rachel’s Challenge. From young Recruit Webster in MCRD San Diego, Nathan has always been a leader of the pack. He’s held various management positions throughout his career at Fortune 500 companies.
In 2016, Nathan became Mr. Social Entrepreneur giving back business tips for those doing social good via his podcast. He talked about government and nonprofit culture using his experiences to help others. Nathan’s own journey of being a nonprofit founder and executive director has left a spot in his heart because he knows those founder-led organizations put passion before profit.
Also, Nathan is an Adjunct Business Professor at Clark College, Clackamas Community College, and Warner Pacific University. Nathan teaches business, marketing, and entrepreneurship. He’s also the Faculty Advisor for the student program, Clark Entrepreneurs.
When not working, he likes to enjoy the beautiful scenery in the Pacific Northwest. His passion to be competitive never stops. Nathan’s joy of finding new things to learn, hang out with his kids, and giving back to others keeps him going. If you have the chance to get to know Nathan, you’ll learn he’s a huge teddy bear who loves life with a big heart.
There’s no other feeling than knowing you have helped others live life on their terms. Dream Big!
For the last couple of years, I’ve been helping companies with their marketing strategies. I didn’t realize they weren’t doing one of the most essential things within their wheelhouse. And I get it. In the world of entrepreneurship, a lot of the hoopla is about the hustle and the grind.May 19, 2020
When I look back at COVID-19, I want to be able to say I did everything possible to help my communities. I posted an “I Challenge You” video on Thursday, April 9, 2020. The post being shown is on LinkedIn, but I posted on other social media platforms too.April 9, 2020
After having so much going on with COVID-19, I wanted to bookmark this timepoint in our podcast history. This is a significant point in our world history, so I’d be remiss if I’d carry on as usual. The picture of Mark Cuban (via Uproxx) of him finding out the NBA league regular season was suspended is the perfect example of how a lot of people feel.March 15, 2020
