“Self-help” sometimes sounds like a catchphrase. For Dr. Nathaniel J. Williams – “Dr. Nat” to his friends and fans – it’s a calling. The author of seven books (including his latest, “Attaining Your Personal Best”), TV talk show host, an in-demand inspirational speaker, and father of seven has lived a story like no other, and his commitment to helping others find their way successfully has made his remarkable story all the more meaningful.
Orphaned at a young age and a product of the New York City foster home system, Dr. Williams rose from his humble beginnings to earn three masters degrees and a doctorate. Utilizing his experience with the public welfare system, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a passion for helping others, since 1993 he has been the President and CEO of HumanWorks Affiliates, Inc., a cluster of eight corporations focused on human services. HumanWorks employs over 200 people and has an operating budget of over $10 million.
