In this episode, Brett Dupree doesn’t talk about himself because the interview with Ty Reed is so amazing and awesome he doesn’t feel the need to talk about himself for a few minutes. Then he has a wonderful interview with Ty Reed who talks about him losing his family and his job to his addiction. How he hit rock bottom to the point where he wants to commit suicide and how he was able to turn his life around.
Ty Reed is a speaker, job developer, and champion for people in recovery. His personal journey of success, failure, and redemption has taught him the value of love, compassion, and forgiveness for self and others.
Ty loves respectful conversation with people of all beliefs, has strong faith in God, and is focusing daily on the small ways that he can improve his little part of the world.
Ty is currently seeking speaking engagements – via Zoom or in-person – at colleges, universities, business associations, and recovery centers speaking on the topics of addiction and recovery, personal myth, and employment. He is in the process of putting together a speaker website, but for now, can be reached at his email of firstname.lastname@example.org.
He is running a Meetup group called “Desperately Seeking Civility” that brings together people from across the political spectrum for respectful dialog. They are always seeking members who want to engage in civil discourse with others.
Ty is a Recovery Career Counselor, helping people who have escaped addiction and/or homelessness rebuild their professional lives. He has recently completed a series of articles and videos called “Are Both You and Your Career in Recovery?” on LinkedIn, that details his path from addiction and homelessness back to employment, and offers advice on how others can do the same. These are searchable on LinkedIn and Ty encourages you to connect with him there.
If you or someone you know is in recovery and looking to rebuild a career or start a new one, email Ty to receive a free 30 min consultation to provide any advice or insight.
