Doug Nelson: # 1 Best Selling Author, International Trainer & Entrepreneur


Doug Nelson’s story is a quintessential rags-to-riches journey. His experience as a child growing up in poverty became the catalyst that made him decide he would create his own wealth and freedom.

Later that year Doug lived through an event that would forever change his life — he was in a serious natural gas explosion. Coming back from the brink of death and spending a year in rehabilitation, Doug realized the power of his unique financial situation. His passion and his mission became teaching people “How to Ignite their Own Economy” so that no matter what happens in their life they are financially bulletproof.
