Such Unfortunates: Overcoming Opiate Addiction (with Andrew Mann) | EP 10 (S2, EP 5)
Today I speak with Andrew Mann, author of the incredible, inspirational true story, Such Unfortunates, about successfully overcoming his opiate addiction. We discuss a bit of that story, as well as why opiate addiction is such a terrible thing, why people get into it, and how to support those going through addiction. This is a point of view not very commonly heard, and one you might not ever otherwise get the chance to hear. ----- About Andrew Mann: Andrew Mann is 42 years old and lives in Bergen County, NJ. He is an Author and part-owner of a Solar Energy business. He is a recovering addict who also suffered from anxiety attacks since age 12 and depression his whole life. After years and multiple failed attempts, he was finally able to beat his addiction and has now devoted his life to helping people who suffer from addictions and issues related to childhood abuse. He has a fiancee, two step-children, two dogs, three cats, and they live in Bergen County, NJ. He enjoys surfing, exercises, alternative energy, boxing, MMA, writing, and doing podcasts/radio shows about the book while getting the message out that "If an addict like me can get clean, anyone can!" Buy his book on Paperback or Kindle edition at https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07S9LJRTZ/, OR listen to it now on Audible by starting your free trial at AudibleTrial.com/TheHappinessQuestion (the narration is FANTASTIC!).

Part 2: Further Words of Advice from Max Ivey | EP 9 (Pt.2) (S2, EP 4)
The thrilling conclusion of the Max Ivey saga. Did he die? Or did we just feel like splitting this episode in half? I suppose you'll have to listen in to find out. (Just kidding, Max is doing just fine, thank you very much.) -- Need a refresher? Here's the description from part 1: Max Ivey is literally the coolest guy ever-- and even better, he's also blind. He's so cool in fact, that we couldn't fit our interview into just one episode; it had to be split in half. Listen to the story of the blind entrepreneur who owns his own amusement park/carnival ride distribution company and how he is able to find positivity in his difficult life. ---- About Max: I’m a totally blind man who transformed himself from a morbidly obese failed carnival owner to a respected amusement equipment broker in the best health of his life. Along the way, I learned so many new skills and so much about myself. In addition to brokering amusement equipment, I am now an award-winning self-help author, entertaining motivational speaker, life goals coach, and online media publicist. I also love to sing and mix music with my public talks. And I host a podcast called The What’s Your Excuse? Show, where me and my guests help others become the person they were meant to become. ---- --Special thanks again to Austin Clark for doing the editing for this episode. Like what you heard?
