Imagine with me, your life gets completely turned upside down in less than a year. Your world is rocked and you have no idea what’s next. What do you do?You can choose to go down the road of making yourself better and creating better circumstances out of terrible situations, or you can let the depression and the despair crush your soul.This was the choice my guest was facing when life completely took his legs out from under him. Several years ago, Drew Deraney found himself at a crossroads. After losing his marriage, his job, his father, and almost losing his own son in less than a year, he made a fateful choice. And that choice led him to become an Amazon bestselling author, a podcaster, and a men’s coach and speaker.Drew has a powerful story of reinvention and redemption and I’m beyond grateful that he chose to share his story on the Soul-R Powered podcast. About Drew:Drew Deraney was born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ where he still lives to this day caring for his elderly mom and his 3 adult children Matthew, Nicholas, and Emma. Drew earned his B.A. in Psychology, M.A. in Applied Psychology, and two psychology research publications while at Fairfield University; a scholarship from the Healthcare Financial Management Association; and his M.B.A. in Health Care Administration from Baruch College / Mount Sinai School of Medicine in NY. In a 9-month span, Drew experienced a grueling divorce, job loss, his son’s suicidal ideations, and his father’s death which devastated Drew emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. It is a commonality for men to consider any challenge as a weakness as well as to show emotion and ask for help. While writing his book, Drew realized he was not the only man suffering in silence. With more clarity of purpose than ever, he began asking for help. Drew Deraney’s mission is to help, especially men, release their inner greatness by showing vulnerability, keeping in integrity of their power, and making a great impact on the people in their lives both personally and professionally.
