EP. 014 | "I love30-day challenges. In 12 months you can have 12 new habits that can transform your life. In 3 years you have 36 new habits and you’re a whole new person."
Brad Hart is an experienced entrepreneur, investor, trader, advisor, and mentor to people who want more from their life. We met at a mastermind and connected immediately.
Brad is a bundle of fired up energy and a force for good. His articles have been read over a million times and his charity works keeps changing lives for the better.
But Brad’s life wasn’t always this way…
After a freak accident left his dad unable to walk, Brad was forced to grow up fast. By the age of five he was expected to be self-sufficient and in his early teens he started living out of his car - to escape his drunk father and avoid the mom he resented.
This challenging childhood taught Brad that he didn’t belong and that people didn’t like him. It was the reason he became an accidental entrepreneur.
He longed to be rich and wealthy - and he succeeded. But financial success didn’t give him the happiness and fulfillment he craved.
I don’t start fires. I throw gasoline on them.
Brad’s story is one of finding your way from rock bottom up and creating a life that not only fulfils you - but supports, inspires, and helps others too.
In this incredible podcast, Brad reveals his soul. He explains how he “started out really f*cked up and found a way that works for US.”
Brad is proof that life really can do a 180. That you can break free of your struggles. That you can escape old paradigms and patterns. That you can move beyond the most challenging of circumstances to create a life that leaves you fulfilled, driven, and inspired to ‘improve’ day after day after day. .
I was amazed listening to Brad’s story and I’m sure you will be to.
