We had the good fortune of connecting with Nich Ramsey and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nich, what do you want people to remember about you?
That I did my best to keep to stay a honorable man. When I was a kid the scripture “ a good name is better than riches” stuck with me. In everything I do I always question will this give me a good name to someone looking in? Or will this tarnish my character. It can take a lifetime to build a reputation, and seconds to ruin it. I would love to be known as the one who did all he could to keep his name clean lol
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a Executive Protection Agent/Bodyguard. As well a firearm instructor. I’ve worked for Grammy award winning artist to some of my favorite movie actors.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
First breakfast at Normas! Then after Harry Hines for the most incredible flea market experience ever! Lol don’t sleep on the Hines! Then after that I would spend my last dollars at The Scent Room on Mckinny Ave. I’m in love with fragrances and that shop has some of the most unique scents ever! Then when we are getting sluggish it’s time for some Beignets at Le Bon Temps! Those hot and ready made to order things are dangerous
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I have several I’d love to thank. My Cynthia Ramsey of Cindies Cakes & Catering, my brothers, Chef Damon, Jon, Kels, Matt, & Tim. Iron sharpens iron. Without these guys man I’d be lost. David Brown, my boss the big man lol. He has given me opportunity after opportunity. Endless advice, and loyalty. Love ya man. Last but not least my wife Bri. For every idea I think nah I shouldn’t pursue she would always tell me chase it, you can do it. I love you wife!
