Joining me today is Greg Rider.
A couple years ago, Greg hit rock bottom emotionally. He was flat broke, living with his parents, addicted to porn, abusing alcohol and drugs every weekend. After walking away from a car crash that almost killed him, a question started flashing through his mind: if he had died in that car crash, how would he be remembered? Not liking his answer, he mustered up the courage to introduce change into his life, slowly putting one foot in front of the other. Around that time he discovered his first personal development book – How to stop worrying and start living, Dale Carnegie – and his life has never been the same since. He then started tapping out credit cards on books and courses, he began taking 100% responsibility for his life, realizing that no one was going to save him. Since then, he has lived a life of freedom. He received experience in different industries, moved to different cities, road tripped to California, read 100’s of books, invested thousands into courses across North America, wrote a book and packed up his bags and moved to the Grand Caymans.
