This week’s guest, Freddy Shegog, is a man of excess. For the past couple years that excess has been in positivity, compassion, education and motivation to help the community around him…but that hasn’t always been the case. There was a time in Freddy’s life when the excess was in alcohol, drugs, and symptoms associated with mental illness. The consequences of these excesses left Freddy homeless and a shell of his current self. That is until Freddy got the help he desperately needed, and over time developed the tools and mindset that has allowed him to turn his story into one of hope. He has gone on to become a keynote speaker, helping others understand the power of change. The quote below demonstrates the power of Freddy’s words.
“I no longer count the days, I make the days count. I attack life with hunger and determination to spread hope. We are each unique with special gifts to offer. I realize my identity will forever change but only in an upward climb as I build upon the foundation of my truth. Like a student who achieves the highest level of education with more degree titles to his name, I want an identity with multiple initials indicating I have helped to change the world in an extremely positive manner.” – Freddy Shegog
