On this episode of The Wednesday Call podcast, Andy Albright wants to talk to you about what it means to be fanatical and how to find the next fanatic on your team.
Damon West, an author and motivational speaker, was a special guest on the show. He wanted to speak to The Alliance about National Convention, where he will serve as the keynote speaker.
West’s book “The Change Agent” details how he let his life get upside down, wound up in jail and now has turned his life around after being released from jail. He was facing life in prison, but was able to change his life. West is an underdog that was facing a sad life that would keep in prison, until he let God start guiding his life.
From the bestselling co-author of The Coffee Bean comes the true story of a well-raised kid, a three-year starting quarterback, a young person filled with potential ... until a shocking addiction took hold.
Sentenced to sixty-five years in a Texas prison, Damon West once had it all. He came from a great family, in a home full of God, love, support, and opportunities to reach any goal.
A natural-born leader, an athlete with good looks and charm, he appeared to be the all-American kid pursuing his dreams. Underneath this facade, however, was an addict in the early stages of disease. After suffering childhood sexual abuse by a babysitter at the age of nine, Damon began putting chemicals into his body to alter the way he felt.
Once he was introduced to methamphetamines, however, he became instantly hooked -- and the lives of so many innocent people would forever be changed by the choices he made in order to feed his insatiable meth habit.
After a fateful discussion during his incarceration with a seasoned convict, Damon had a spiritual awakening. He learned that, like a coffee bean changing with the application of heat and pressure, he was capable of changing the environment around him.
Armed with a program of recovery, a renewed faith, and a miraculous second chance at life, Damon emerged from over seven years of prison a changed man. His story of redemption continues to inspire audiences today.
Albright also had top agents Stephen Davies and Mark Hutcheson join him on the show. The trio hosted a meeting in Detroit, Mich. The night before, but flew back in time to host the TWC.
