Road Trips, Awakenings, and Near Death Experiences
Let me take you on a road trip through the desert Southwest. There, I will encounter some interesting characters, cry a river of long overdue tears, and experience one near-death experience in the Grand Canyon. Where will this lead? To a massive awakening that I have only read about in books. Yes, it happened to me. It can happen to you, too.

Sex Addiction, Relapse, and Spiritual Awakenings
Recovery is not a linear process. There are many slips and falls along the way for chronic alcoholics like me. In this episode, I paint the grim picture of how relapse happens and shed light on my own sex addiction as a result of sexual trauma. More importantly, I start to see the light. Spiritual awakenings do not happen overnight, but they do happen. This is the beginning of mine!

How Shark Tank Changed My Life Through Tough Love
In this episode, I talk about how I wound up in the psych ward. How pharmaceuticals fed to me by negligent shrinks caused me to nearly take my life. And how something said to me on Shark Tank changed the trajectory of my life, forever. This is part 2 of my "refusing to drown" story. Healing from trauma and addiction is absolutely possible, I am living proof. If I can survive the shit-tornado of life, and do so with grace, so can you!
