WELCOME! I'M NELSON. GREAT TO MEET YOU!

My goal is to help you land your dream job so that you can build a life of purpose, happiness and financial freedom.

I’m here to share all of the lessons I’ve learned so that you can get on the fast track to landing an amazing job at one of the top technology companies.

Over the last 13 years, I’ve been lucky enough to work remotely in over 100 cities at some of the best technology companies in the world like Box, Toptal, Cisco, VMware and Optimizely.

Along the way, my work and advice has been featured on Forbes, Fortune, Quartz, Time, Business Insider, Inc.com, The Huffington Post, MSN Money, Mic.com, Thought Catalog, CRN, Quartz, PopSugar, TheLadders and Product Hunt.

So how did this all happen?

MY STORY

When I first started working, I made $0. Literally.

I was an unpaid intern working at MTV. I was incredibly grateful though. It taught me a lot about the importance of learning from others and hard work.

Eventually though, I had bills and a college tuition to pay for, so I started to take on jobs that paid.

One of the my first jobs was as a cashier where I was making minimum wage.

Another one of my early jobs was as a labor foreman where I would often have to mop the floors and take out the garbage.

One night, I remember taking out loads of garbage and one of the bigs ripped. Everything spilled on me. As I tossed the last garbage bag into the dumpster, there was one thought that stuck with me that night and was forever burned in my mind. 

I’m better than this.  I have untapped potential that I’m going to show the world. 

That’s when I decided I wanted to join companies that were changing the world through innovation.

That’s why I focused on the technology industry.

Along the way, I’ve been able to figure out how to:

  • Work my way up from cashier (making the minimum wage) to being an executive at a technology company with a valuation of over a billion dollars.

  • Quadruple my salary in a span of 5 years through effective salary negotiation

  • Get promoted into leadership roles (Director, Head and VP) managing teams responsible for millions of dollars in business

  • Build a personal LinkedIn brand that has lead to interviews with companies like Google, Cisco, VMware, Box, Apple, Toptal, Optimizely, Stripe, Amplitude and numerous startups

  • Work remotely for most of those 13 years in over 100 cities (including Barcelona, Amsterdam, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Miami and more)

I learned that landing your dream requires a transformation in your thinking. You’ve got to push yourself to stand out. I also recognize that I’ve been incredibly lucky - I’ve had mentors and friends help me along the way that helped me learn that lesson.

And now it’s my turn to pay it forward.
