Interviewee #21: Joe Mintzer on Overcoming Drug Addiction (Part 1 of 2)

I woke up one weekday morning and saw a message from a booking agent.  Trevor, who works as the agent, told me he had a client that would be very suitable for a podcast interview.

Joe, a man who was fueled by drug addiction at the age of 13 and selling cocaine by 21, had a panic attack in his late 30’s, realized that it was time to embrace life.  Through meditation and going back to school, he turned his tumultuous teen years around and embarked on a mission to inspire others around the world — starting a program called Spiraddict Warrior — a program that aims at helping addicts recover through meditation and fitness.

Guys, without further ado, this is a special one!
