Title: From Homeless to Hero: Redesigning your life with Michael Unbroken

Description: From homeless to hero, Michael Unbroken, is the Founder of Think Unbroken, best-selling author, award-winning speaker, podcast host, coach, and advocate for adult survivors of childhood trauma.
At 4 years old Michael’s emotionally incestuous mother cut off his right index finger, she was a drug addict and alcoholic.

At 6 his hyper-abusive step-father beat and hospitalized him.

At 7 he was molested by a den mother in the Mormon Church.

From 8-12 he was often homeless and in deep poverty and did what it took to survive from stealing food and only bathing at school.

He got high for the first time at 12 and drunk at 13. By 15 he was expelled from school for selling drugs.
At 18 he found himself deep in The Vortex and began chasing money to solve his problems.
By 25 Michael was 350 pounds, smoking two packs a day, drinking himself to sleep, and attempted suicide for the second time.

Then he had his mirror moment and decided to stop being a victim of trauma and to be the HERO of his own Story!

Since 2016, Michael has empowered over 100,000 trauma survivors to get out of The Vortex, learn to love themselves, and become the hero of their own story. Michael has written multiple books including the best seller Think Unbroken: Understanding and Overcoming Childhood Trauma, spoken in over 80 countries, won investments from Undercover Billionaire Grant Cardone, and is on a mission to end Generational Trauma in his lifetime.

Join James and Michael as they talk about how to deal with Trauma and build your life intentionally.
