Welcome to the first episode of Turning Point, telling the inspiring stories of triumph over adversity in the realm of addiction and mental health.
This week we caught up with Joe Roberts, an inspirational example of overcoming adversity and managing change. In 1989 he was living under a bridge as a homeless skid row addict. Today he is an author, CEO and internationally sought after professional speaker who motivates and inspires audiences worldwide.
And as if that wasn’t impressive enough, Joe is embarking on a 9000km journey across the country, pushing a shopping cart, to raise awareness and funds for youth homelessness. We talk about his journey through recovery, as well as what drives him to make a difference today. Enjoy, and make sure you head over to The Push For Change to get involved and make a donation.
And if you enjoyed this show, you’ll love seeing Joe on the TEDx stage.
