For years he’s kept this part of his life a secret, but in trusting a feeling that it was time to share his story, he opened up and realized that his pain could be used for good.

So, I felt compelled to start talking about going from attempting suicide to becoming a national motivational speaker. Shortly after my presentation, this girl ran onto the stage crying and hugging me saying, ‘You just saved my life!’”
