Gregory Nesmith

Fun facts

Philadelphia, PA

What did you want to become as a child?
I wanted to be a radio/TV talk show host, entrepreneur, NBA basketball player, and mayor of Philly (my hometown).

Why did you become a coach?
Coaches helped me reset my professional and personal life in my late 30’s. My life has been evolving and enjoyable since the reset.  I became a coach to help others that want to rediscover how special they and reset their professional and/or personal life. And hopefully, my coaching can help them not wait as long as I did to go from stuck to unstuck to growth.

What is your current personal development area?
I’m working increasing my level of vulnerability. I believe it will create healthier connections with people and increase my level of authenticity.
