“It makes me want to cry to think that I am fortunate enough to have a big brother like Peter.”
(Liisa Nygard Johnson)

Peter Nygard is one of two children of Eeli and Hilkka Nygard. The other was Liisa. Peter Nygard and his sister grew up very close to each other. Unfortunately, Liisa passed away earlier this year.

This is what Liisa said about Peter Nygard in 2018 and how he became her knight in shining armor on discovering that she had cancer: “When I found out last year that I had metastasized breast cancer, I didn’t know if I would make it to this year. When my brother found out, he jumped into action. Thank God for my brother. He has helped me with it and I’m marching on to good health.

“Peter is the kind of person that has to dig deep into everything. He’s not just satisfied with what’s on the surface. He is doing so much for me on this health quest. I had bad cataracts and he lined up an appointment for me to have a cataract removed. What a miracle that is. Peter has given me a whole new lease on life!

“He becomes like an angel around you. He wants to see people happy and not hurting. It makes me want to cry to think that I was fortunate enough to have a brother like him. He’s been like my guru and someone that I have looked up to my whole life. I’m here today as a cancer survivor thanks to my brother Peter.”

Given who Peter Nygard is with such a kind-hearted nature, it should be no surprise that he wanted to share his business success with his sister. So, Peter Nygard helped Liisa to establish a home-based business. With Liisa’s smarts and savvy, her business took off and became a multi-million-dollar success in no time.

Liisa once expressed that she didn’t expect it to grow as much as it did and become so
successful. She was grateful to her brother Peter Nygard, who she called her mentor and

The saying ‘don’t mix family and business’ is due to the many failed business relationships with family members that abound. It is commonly felt that it is extremely difficult to make any type of a business arrangement with family members succeed. However, for Liisa and Peter Nygard, there were no challenges in that regard, which is a testament to their level of trust for each otherand Peter Nygard’s desire to always look out for the wellbeing of Liisa.
