Episode Summary

Drug addicts? Yeah, that’s what the title says.

My guest this week is not the typical high-powered entrepreneur that I normally talk to because his story of success began with a serious drug addiction.

In this week’s episode of The 5 AM Miracle Podcast I speak with Michael Brody-Waite about his new book, Great Leaders Live Like Drug Addicts.

Michael Brody-Waite

At age twenty-three, Michael Brody-Waite was a full blown drug addict. He was kicked out of college, fired from his job and evicted from his apartment.

Over 17 years later, Michael is a recovering addict, 3x CEO, TEDx Speaker, Inc. 500 Founder, and leadership coach is on a mission to revolutionize the rules of leadership.

Michael’s background in overcoming addiction is the foundation for his Mask-Free Leadership System, which is built upon 3 principles that saved him from death and set him apart as a leader.

His TEDx Talk, Great Leaders Do What Drug Addicts Do, has been viewed over 1,300,000 times in over 25 countries and provides insight into his 16-year journey from near homelessness and addiction to successful entrepreneurship.

His new book, Great Leaders Live Like Drug Addicts, is available now wherever books are sold.
