31 Kyle Hartman - From Rock Bottom to Rock Solid
Aug 30 2018 62 mins  
In this week's episode we catch up with Kyle Hartman of The Veteran Growth Podcast. Kyle joined the Army and attended the Defensive Language Institute to learn Mandarin. He ultimately landed a career in logistics before his time in the military took a downward spiral. Kyle opens up and shares the uncomfortable experiences with drug addiction, self-doubt and failure to finding his way out of the pit of self-pity and drug dependance and into the role of loving father, entrepreneur, and podcast host helping other vets find their way after military service. Kyle is a true example of taking that hard look in the mirror, changing, and rising from the ashes. I know you'll all enjoy hearing how he did it. - Find Kyle on Instagram and Facebook - Listen to the show on the Veteran Growth Website, Soundcloud, and Podbean. If you're a veteran struggling and need someone to talk with, call the Veteran Crisis Line: 1-800-273-8255 *********************** Mike started the Transitions from War blog to talk about his struggles getting home, PTSD, and addiction and then finding endurance sports to really begin feeling whole again. Breaking the stereotype of illiterate Marines, Mike and Rich met up in college at UC Berkeley. A few years after graduation they teamed up again, this time to discuss and promote a topic blatantly absent from their college days: healthy lifestyle and fitness.
