Your Road to Personal Addiction Recovery
Ep. 169 Only The Strong Survive
The journey of corporate professional and former CEO Roger Smith is an impactful tale of survival. As a youth, the tough-as-nails and inspiring young man overcame a life of homelessness and severe substance abuse to triumph in becoming one of the country's leading lights in the business world.
His story is now shared in the critically acclaimed new book, THE MOST UNLIKELY LEADER, which powerfully and eloquently recounts his life story for the first time.
Roger Smith says of the book, "With an estimated 30 million Americans suffering from some sort of an addiction on the heels of the pandemic, I hope my story of redemption is something people can use right now to know their own comeback is possible".,p> Roger Smith is the past CEO of American Income Life Insurance Co., National Income Life Insurance Co., and Liberty National Life Insurance Co. He is also the recipient of the Yitzhak Rabin Legacy Award, Eleanor Roosevelt Human Rights Award, Healthcare For All Champion Award, Sol Stein Award, as well as numerous other awards and publications. He is the father of 5 adult children (Nicole, Conrad, Emily, Adam, and Amiah) and proud grandfather of Maggie Mae. He resides in Florida with his wife Demi and his two dogs, Penelope and Chrome.
