In this episode I am going to talk to Justin Hughes about where he was in his life at one time. Having to overcome homelessness, being locked up, being diagnosed schizophrenic, and ultimately attempting to take his own life. * Fortunately Justin made it through that dark period in his life and can share the story of how he persevered and overcame those obstacles to become a business owner and pulled himself out of that hole and created a stable life for himself. * I believe that it is extremely important to broadcast and share these stories especially in the fragile and tumultuous times we are facing as a population across the world right now. There are plenty of people that are struggling with mental health, incarcerated/ formerly incarcerated, homeless/ or facing homelessness due to the current condition that our country finds itself in with regards to the Pandemic. * Justin's Bio: * "Justin Hughes is the illegitimate son of a high school cheerleader and a rodeo bronco buster. Dealt bad card after bad card in life, he played the hand he was dealt; severe persistent mental illness, abusive upbringing, addiction in the family, and abject poverty, and became the go-to guy for creating business sales opportunities. Now a successful entrepreneur, Justin Hughes is proof that no circumstance is unbeatable." * * If you like the streaming platform that I am using called StreamYard use the link below to sign up with and receive a $10 credit for signing up.
