NICHOLAS G GARDNER
Established in 1996
For over 40 years, I have provided life transformation products and services to people & companies everywhere.
Inspired by my faith and supported by my experience and connections with others, I developed "Nick the Navigator"...helping people find their way.
In 1996, I met a stranger to Louisville who was in need of help with his business.
Utilizing my limited knowledge and access to technology, I helped connect this person to 40 business owners and executives in Louisville, who were in my email database, at the time, and through our joint effort, helped this gentleman solve his challenge.
My database of just 40 people, has now grown to over 5,000 business owners and executives in the Greater Louisville area and around the country.
Through my use of this network, I can connect people to the brilliant minds and souls of people who can assist them in finding solutions for their personal lives or business.
Blessed by my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I am a conduit; an instrument for connecting people and helping them to "find their way" to what they need in life or business.
Born in 1953...
Created by God Almighty!
We've heard all the euphemisms. Life is a journey, life is what you make of it. After a while it all sounds the same. I am anything, but the same.
Intentionally different, because I was created as a unique person...destined to discover, my true self...Nick the Navigator
I was the wayward child. A non-conformist. I loved my Mom and Dad, and they loved me, but I took a different road than they had planned for me.
After I left school (and school left me as well) I wandered...literally wandering looking for the next great "me".
And what I found, was not "me" as I knew myself to be.
I began living my life intentionally and not according to how someone else thought I should live.
As long as it is moral, legal and ethical, then I was interested and found myself to be interesting.
My first "real" job was as a hot air balloon pilot. For 7 + years I traveled through 48 states, the provinces of Canada and the Caribbean, meeting people, flying hot air balloons. A great time...a great life!
A more traditional job started, after ballooning and after some time, I noticed there was something missing at the end of the workday.
I was helping my boss, a business owner, fulfill his dream...but not mine.
So, I started my own business, "helping people find their way".
In the process of helping people find their way, I found my way. A quick story...
When the Nick the Navigator...helping people find their way, was first developed, I thought to myself "I'll help people and then people will help me". That seems right and reasonable.
But God's ways are not our ways. I then understood that I was to help people with no expectation of reconciliation. Just help people.
Then I wondered "which people?". Well...I know a lot of successful people who are leaders, business owners, etc., so if I help those people, think of how many people may be influenced by that.
Wrong again...so, who am I supposed to help? It was revealed to me "Who is in front of you?" "That is who you help".
Now, life couldn't be simpler...not necessarily easy, but simple.
Help who's in front of me.
That's what I do...and since the beginning, I have met and helped so many people, businesses, from all walks of life...
So...are you in front of me? Call me, text me, email me or meet with me. Let me "help you find your way"...thanks Nick the Navigator.
Mission, Vision and Purpose
