093: Michael Parnell | Turning Your Life Around

Dec 31, 2018 | Interviews, Podcast


In today’s episode, I talk with Michael Parnell, a man with one heck of a story of turning around his life. I met Mike through my wife while at an event, and wanted to have him on the show because of the immense challenges he had to overcome in order to get to where he is today. Mike shares his story and is real, unfiltered, and totally honest – which I find incredibly courageous.
