I've been wallowing in regret for leaving a career I've built to pursue a job that I thought would be more financially rewarding. Everything in your book really helped me put things in perspective , thank you so much. (K)
Your writing about pain, disappointment and hurt is something that I can empathize with. It's almost as if somebody read my thoughts and was able to put into words the sadness I feel. (V)
Very knowledgeable in matters about love and life . It was an honor to know him and meet him… I am very grateful to God that He allowed me to cross paths with Sir Nelson. He is not only a speaker nor a mentor, but also a friend... (M)
Hi, I'm Nelson! Welcome to my site!
I'm a published author, speaker, and trainer. But what I love most is listening to people. It's because I do know that life can be tough, even downright unfair. I have been there.
I can’t promise you solutions, let alone miracles. But we can journey together on-line and through the books, speeches and workshops I give about relationships, career and spirituality.
You talk. I listen.

OK BOOMER, TELL ME Y: WHEN TWO GENERATIONS TALK
By Hyacinth J. Tagupa and Nelson T. Dy
Are you fed up with your millennial kid who can’t seem to hold on to a job for longer than a year? Or are you that millennial kid who’s fed up with your boomer parents telling you off for all your life choices?
Do you feel like every conversation is a battleground, and there are so many things you wish you could tell each other but you can’t?
Maybe this book can help you start somewhere. Maybe it’s not too late to try.
Career, marriage, social media, authority, and religion. Five conversational minefields where different generations are concerned. But they don’t have to be. In OK Boomer, Tell Me Y, a boomer and a millennial explore these five facets in a civil dialogue—dissecting the stereotypes that plague each of their generations, not to start a frustrating confrontation, but to discuss and develop a deeper understanding of one another.
"This book... reminds us that our objective should not be
to draw the line, but bridge the gap."

A practical book that will help you discover yourself, find happiness in what you do, and make a lasting difference to your life and others.

The person who wants to “make an impact on the world” is not the one who just charges headlong into the fray. Rather, God must first impact that person before he can make an impact on anything.

The Paradox of Job Happines
Are you groaning (again) at the prospect of going to work? Is your job something you are enduring rather than enjoying? Perhaps your mantra is “If only I have the right job, I will be happy.” This is the paradox of job happiness. Don’t expect your job to make you happy. Rather, do your job to give value to others and happiness will follow.

You Really Can't Let go
Remember Frozen? Time was when people were belting Let It Go, be it off-key videoke or professional cover. But I would disagree with Queen Elsa. There are things we really can’t let go. Take our past, for instance. Motivational speakers and counselors would tell us to “let go” of what we don’t like about our personal histories.
