After Nick Howard earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from Wayne State University, he went on to become the co-owner of Living Legacy, LLC, where he obtained his Life Insurance and Annuities Series 7 License and enjoyed several years in the financial services industry. Later, Nick switched career paths and graduated from the Arizona Law Enforcement Academy, which enabled him to serve as a police officer in Gilbert, Arizona. Nick was then able to live out his personal dream as a professional poker player for two years but found that he missed the pace and challenges of the business world, so he re-entered the mainstream as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the inside coup magazine, a direct mail marketing company based in Scottsdale, Arizona. In this role, Nick was instrumental in helping the inside coup achieve tremendous growth and expand nationally.
Most recently, Nick successfully obtained his Arizona real estate license and is now the co-owner of Private Label Ventures, LLC. Nick’s focus is on providing outstanding customer service and helping customers achieve their real estate and business goals
