Thriving through adversity is something today’s guest, Luis Congdon, can speak about with authority. Having survived a childhood marred by drug abuse, abandonment, violence, and homelessness, Luis has turned his life around, going from trying to help himself to finding ways to help others. From relationship coaching to helping entrepreneurs launch their businesses, Luis now makes it a point to support himself while improving the lives of those around him, and giving away as much as possible for free. In this episode, Luis will share with us some of the personal mindfulness practices he follows to keep himself centered and grounded in difficult situations, tell us how learning to see himself differently helped him present a different face to the world, and walk us through how he manages his own thriving business today.
