Confident Equestrian

Nathan Gist

“When it all comes to an end, we are not measured by our wealth nor by self-serving accomplishments, but by how much we have contributed to our society to benefit mankind.”  ~Papa

It’s been years since my grandfather wrote these words to me, and they have resonated ever since.

Each of us has a limited time for breaths to take, love to share, and opportunities to embrace.

…And for the last 20 years I have looked for ways to serve, whether in the jungles of northern Thailand with the tribal Lahu people, radio shows, or even stadiums filled with overly caffeinated teenagers.

From international grade school kids, to federal agencies I’ve worked with the singular purpose of inspiring people to be their best and to realize possibilities.

With a unique blend of humor, fun, and faith my main drive is to connect and to teach how to live life to the fullest.

Not just words but strategies

Words and motivation are great but then what?…

Each talk, workshop, presentation, or course comes with simple easy to follow steps and guidelines to desired outcomes.

The purpose is to give you and your team the tools and techniques you need to fulfill your mission and vision.

So…. Let’s chat and find out what’s possible!
