Ep 18: You Are Not Your Parents: Ace Blue on Growing Up With Drugs In The Home

JCF_YT_EP18

Every person grows up differently

Some grow up a little more privileged, 

While others grow up with normal set of folks

But for those of us who’ve had drug addicts for parents, lead a life that’s far from easy.

Ace Blue’s parents were hooked on meth since he was born

His father was part of a biker gang in their little town up in Nebraska, 

And as a child Ace and his family would do drills late at night should an ambush come their way. 

While other kids his age came home to a warm meal and a bedtime story. 

His mother wasn’t any better. 

She quit her job in real estate for drugs, and once threatened her children with a knife a few days after Christmas. 

Ace’s turbulent childhood is pretty heavy

It’s definitely something that would make huge dent on any person’s mental and emotional well being

But that didn’t stop him from having the will to move on, chase his goals, and make a better life for himself and his siblings.

Ace is now raking it in as a sales agent and working super hard to make ten digits in the future. 

And that’s why I admire Ace a lot.

We both value work, the importance of physical, emotional, and mental health

and self-discipline, especially in unfavorable situations

If there’s anything that we can learn from this lad, determination and grit 

can help us get out of this dreadful cycle of life

Smash that play button now to know why you should listen to this bloke in this podcast. 

See you in the episode, legends.

Cheers.
