Today Jake is talking with Barry of the podcast, The Self Help Rockstar.
Barry’s podcast was originally titled No Easy Answers, but he started having issues really communicating what the show was all about. The show was centered on a question, each episode had a question as a title and he and the guests focused on that question during the show. But about 78 episodes in, it became difficult to keep thinking of new questions to use for each episode. Barry decided to combine his experience in music and self help into one show and therefore changed the name of the podcast to The Self Help Rockstar.
Barry got into the world of self help because he needed it in his own life. In 2011, he was sitting alone in a parking garage in Boston. He had filed for divorce and bankruptcy, was battling depression, had been sober for a year and a half but had the urge to drink again, and was suicidal. He sat with a razor blade in one hand, ready to end his life. He called a good friend who had been through a similar experience. The friend was able to talk him away from that edge and Barry made it through the night. He decided he had to do something to change his life. He began to devour self help books, podcasts, and videos by all the big names. Slowly, from that point, Barry began to turn his life around.
Now he uses those experiences to reach out to others and help them change their lives and mindset. Listen in as Barry chats with us today about hope, overcoming fears, and how to start turning your life around even in the darkest moments.
