The Details

Traumatic experience:

Emmanuel was born into a new-age cult where he was told what to think. He was later raised in one of the top 10 most violent cities in the U.S., where he had to fight to protect himself every day from the ages of 8-12.

Effects of the traumatic experience:

As a result of the brainwashing in the cult, Emmanuel was confused about the way things really worked in the real world. He was confused about money, and struggled in relationships with women because he had no sense of boundaries. He also became addicted to alcohol at the age of 14.

Overcoming the traumatic experience:

Therapy was one of the biggest game changers for Emmanuel, along with getting sober through a 12-step program and understanding why he engaged in the behaviors he did. The biggest game changer was writing his soon-to-be-released memoir this past year.

What Emmanuel does today:

Emmanuel is a podcaster, coach, writer and speaker.

Final Question:

Given what you know now, if you could go back to when you were going through the tough times and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?

Emmanuel's Answer: Don't stop. Keep pushing forward.
