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.

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.
