My name is Brian Nunez, and I want to be as real, and honest as I can be so you will understand who I really am, where I came from and what I am truly passionate about and why. Throughout my life I have accomplished a lot of really great things that I am proud, however, it was my struggles that helped me succeed. Many times we see what someone has accomplished and think that road was easy. My story is far from that and I proud of who I am and what I am becoming each day.
If someone had told me when I was younger, what I would be doing today I would have looked at them as if they were crazy. Public speaking, giving keynotes, coaching pro athletes, CEO’s, and business professionals was something that I couldn’t even fathom at a young age.
I am in the business of Human Connection. My mission is to connect people to their passion, purpose, and greatest potential.
What I didn’t realize was that I had planted a seed of emotional dishonesty. My ego at a young age told me to portray a life where everything was great, and I had no problems at all. I used to think problems were a sign of weakness. I didn’t want to look stupid, or immature, although oftentimes I felt like the dumbest person in school. Having ADD, school never came easy to me. I was constantly restless and distracted, never able to focus on one thing at a time. I could focus for about 10 minutes on a test then just fill in the rest, out of boredom. This would be a pattern that would continue throughout my and into college.
Growing up playing sports kept me grounded. It was my outlet for expressing and releasing what I had bottled up. Of all the sports I played growing up, football was the game I loved the most. I didn’t realize it then, but football was my alter ego growing up. I could be assertive, take chances, and risks without worrying what people thought about me, I could be vulnerable by always wanting to be coached on my weaknesses. But the one thing I loved about sports was the stability of a team, a family.
Finding my passion and purpose was something I struggled with for many years. When my days of playing college football came to an end I found myself even more lost and confused. I was constantly questioning who I was, what I wanted, and where was I going in life. I had a lot of limiting beliefs that held me back from really creating and understanding my passion and purpose.
I was more confused than ever. So I decided to take one of the biggest risks in my life and move away to a place where I didn’t know anyone, and they didn’t know me, Australia. I needed to figure out who I was, without sports. What was I most passionate about? What did I want to do with my life? Who was the person I wanted to become?
When I came home at the age of 22, I was more connected to who I was but had lost connection with some of the people that were closest to me. I was on my path of finding myself and in pursuit of finishing up my degree, along with going to school to become a firefighter. Having always had a desire to help people, for years I thought being a firefighter would be the career that would fit me best. While going to school I worked a few jobs, and one of those being a personal trainer.
Working as a trainer was where my passion for helping people turned into my purpose. After all of the schooling was done with SJSU and EMT school, I had made a commitment to pursue being a performance coach as my full-time career. With no idea how to make it a career, or how much money I would make, I followed my gut and knew that it was my calling to proactively serve people.
