TODAY'S SHOW IS A REPLAY - How Addiction Saved My Life: The Real Dope On Dealing With An Addict, with Guests and Co-authors: Meridith Powell & Beth Brand
Sisters and authors Beth and Meridith have had to navigate life through six addicts thus far. Their grandfather. Their father. Their two brothers. And both their first husbands.
Needless to say, they have gained a wealth of knowledge about dealing with addiction along the way. They have also gained great insights into how addiction and codependency work together to destroy generations of families, and they offer proven strategies to stop the spread of these intertwined diseases.
After years of therapy, tons of reading, loads of painful soul searching, and miles of talking to each other on the hiking trail, Beth and Meridith know that while their particular story might be extreme, the lesson they have learned along the way can be of benefit to millions.
In addition to their extraordinary story, both authors are successful entrepreneurs. Meridith is a business development expert, certified coach, and owner of MotionFirst
(www.motionfirstnow.com). She is renowned in her industry for her ability to bring the numbers side and the people side of businesses together—aligning goals and moving her clients to increased profitability. Meridith’s natural ability to rapidly connect with people has made her a much sought-after speaker, trainer, and coach. She is an active member of the National Speakers Association, the Carolinas Speakers Association, the American Society of Training and Development, and Lessons In Leadership.
