Episode 8 of N2 Hinterland podcast is a conversation with Joe Cover. Joe shares the story of his upbringing as a foster child in New York, his internal void/confusion during his adolescence years and his addiction to prescription opiates that later landed him a 38-month incarceration. We learn that ancient practices of yoga and meditation have been a guiding light for Joe’s triumph over serious addiction and self-doubt. He also explains, through an intentional state of positive thinking, that the ups-and-downs of his adult life (now 37 year old) have enabled him to turn his rock-bottom experience into new and exciting opportunities that celebrate his 2nd chance at this thing we call life. About Joe: Joe’s life starts in the New York Foster Care System immediately from birth and he remains in the state’s custody until he was legally adopted at the age of 4 years old. Currently, Joe is a consultant for Credit Card Processing and business development and firmly supports anti-bullying initiatives.
