David Zamir went from $200,000 of debt to running his own small appliance business by learning appliance repair.
Learning a trade empowered him with a sense of fulfillment from helping others and provided the economic security to support his family. He founded Nana so others could follow his path.
Nana Academy was named after David’s own mother to honor and respect the woman who worked tirelessly to provide for the family when his father suddenly passed away.
