Episode 87: Nathaniel J. Brown – Processing Anger, Empathetic Listening & Growth Mindsets

by | Apr 4, 2021 | Interviews with Leaders | 0 comments

“Fear is the tool that forms you into the greatest version of yourself.”

-Nathaniel J. Brown

Nathaniel J. Brown is what some call a deep well to drink from. From childhood, he was always curious. Taking the time to disassemble things for the sake of seeing how they work, and questioning things that didn’t quite add up. But at the age of 8, something happened that silenced him for nearly 30 years. The fallout from the trauma had taken its toll. Nathaniel battled PTSD, night terrors, mis-identity, inferiority, anger, isolation, and the overall feeling of not being enough.

However, after doing the deep inner work and shifting his mindset along with his perspective, Nathaniel has made it his mission to help others, especially men, reconnect to who they truly are. He believes that when we look at our traumas from a new perspective, we engage with life differently. We become better Fathers, Mothers, Husbands, Wives, Entrepreneurs and Leaders. There is a life worth living, beyond the trauma, and when we embrace “that” life, we can truly Be, Do and Have what ever we desire.

Change Your Perspective. Change Your Story. Change Your Life.
