Podcast – From Alcoholic Young Mom to Motivational Speaker: The Journey of Addiction and Recovery with Kelsey Humphreys

Who is Kelsey Humphreys? She’s an incredibly talented woman (singer, rapper, motivational comedian, speaker, author, mom, and business owner). And she also happens to be a recovering alcoholic. Kelsey and I share a candid conversation about life before and after she became sober. This is a very valuable episode — whether you’re questioning your own sobriety or know someone struggling with an addiction or simply want to feel inspired by someone who turned her life around big time!
