Work with Us
(This page describes the paid work I do for organizations. If you're an individual who wants to join the ItStartsWith.Us team for free, pop on over here.)
Here's the two-minute overview of what ItStartsWith.Us can do for your organization:
My job is to make it easy for any organization to mobilize their people to give back and make a difference in a fun, free and effective way. Providing this opportunity for your members helps you build a better engagement, recruitment and retention platform to attract and keep the best people for the job. It enhances your organization's culture. It builds sales, brand awareness and generates free, positive publicity, allowing you to spend those advertising/marketing dollars somewhere else. And best of all, you get to help us change the world. Literally.

Add Your Organization to the Network
I've built a suite of software tools that will allow you to organize, mobilize and direct your members to give back both internally and externally in any way that matches your organization's mission. I custom-built these tools based on the success of the micro-giving platform that the ItStartsWith.Us team has been working from over the past year. The ItStartsWith.Us platform is available on a quarterly lease, and when you sign up, you also get free onsite consulting sessions with me, membership in and monthly meetings with the ItStartsWith.Us leadership network, and you become a part of the quarterly shared global missions, which will accomplish things that the world has never before seen.
Here are some of the types of places I work with:
- Non-profits and NGOs
- Educational organizations (academic fraternities, universities, high schools)
- Fan clubs
- Local community organizations
- Volunteer groups
- Online communities

I speak and lead workshops on the topic of Changing the World (and Your Team) in 15 Minutes a Week, demonstrating the power of loosely connected people joining together in very small time increments to accomplish very big things, while building relationships, touching hearts and changing lives along the way.
You can check out the Pecha Kucha / Ignite-style intro to my first speaking event below. I've gotten better since then. :)
I gave the closing keynote at a technology/non-profit conference in Chicago recently – here's some feedback from the organizer:
Nate St. Pierre is not afraid to tackle problems...head on! I have watched him at work the past year as he has built a community online that is engaged and enthusiastic. He has strong opinions but a very soft approach. He doesn't ruffle feathers, but knows how to make things happen. Additionally, Nate has a great sense of humor and understands the value, even for adults, of being playful. I invited Nate to speak at a conference I recently ran and he was brilliant. His role was to tie the entire day together and help people see the big picture. He was profound in his message but simple in his language. Everyone in the room connected with what he had to say.
