  • Rebuilding After Addiction, Unemployment, and a Criminal Record

Today’s episode is about the power of second chances and, specifically, second-chance employment. Ty Reed speaks with Zach about his former life as an award-winning salesperson for a Fortune 500 company who found himself unemployed, addicted to meth, and living homeless on the streets of Seattle. Now a speaker on the topic of recovery and employment, Ty provides career coaching to individuals recovering from drug & alcohol abuse and homelessness through his nonprofit, Recovery Career Services. Ty and Zach talk about imposter syndrome, the need for compassion and extending forgiveness, and specific ways employers can create mental health conscious work environments.
