Struggling with Success

Angus has spoken at headquarters for Coca-Cola, Adobe and Wal-Mart. He’s been incredibly successful but it’s not something he is comfortable with. Growing up in the Midwest, there was always a negative connotation that went along with dropping names and flaunting success.

This false pride has taken him over 40 years to overcome. It was no longer something that puffed him up. Instead, it gave him credibility with others that he is opening up a doorway to your head and to your heart for him to speak of something with depth, quality and quantity.

Angus Nelson – Life Expectations Journey

Angus began at bible college with a degree in youth ministry. In his late 20’s he moved into non-profits. By his early 30’s, he was in the constant struggle to keep his non-profit afloat. He was working 60-70-80 hour work weeks. The stress caused rifts within his marriage. Angus turned to alcohol, pornography and other sexual encounters.
