A Journey of Trials to Triumph


#soberonpurpose #podcast 

Every entrepreneur has to go through their fair struggles, and Chris Platow is no different. He has an amazing story to tell us which I am elated to share with you. Chris broke down his journey into a three-stage process: trials and hardships, triumphs of good and bad, and growth through change. A great story about what it takes to be successful and overcome addiction.
