Watch this class today to unlock an autobiographical experience you will never forget! I just finished filming Speaker Meeting 2017 in January and February 2017 to share my experience, strength, and hope with my addictions in candid detail featuring the following with the hope you can identify and learn from my experience!

  1. My life story such as where I grew up and how I live today.
  2. Video gaming addiction from beginning to end including starting my business to help with it in the middle.
  3. Using food to change how I felt and unconscious eating behavior with a 14 year weight gain and loss journey.
  4. Emotional roller coaster with depression, anxiety, fear, panic attacks, frustration, annoyance, and anger transitioning into a life of peace, joy, and freedom today.
  5. A day and life lived in recovery now with an in depth view of what I do one day at a time to be free of the six forces that guided my life in misery which today help me stay connected with my higher power.

While you get the majority of the class here, Skillshare does not allow explicit content which means I am not allowed to include the discussions on sex, alcohol, or gambling in this class. If you would like the extended version which includes these, would you rent or buy it on YouTube at https://youtu.be/aPzmDezsRZA or on my website at https://jerrybanfield.com/product/sm17/? The following sections are omitted from this version of the class:

  • An intimate journey for mature viewers only inside my body shame and problems with sex.
  • The full two hour speaker meeting of my alcoholism where I share what it was like, what happened, and what life is like now.
  • Where gambling and money issues left me nearly bankrupt and ready for the end.

In 2005 while I was in college at the University of South Carolina, I tried to start working online. I signed up for an MLM program and a survey website. A month later, I had refunds from both and figured working online was not possible because everything was a scam. The truth was I was afraid to fail again.

In 2011, I moved in with my wife and launched an online business focusing on video game addiction in an attempt to avoid dealing with any of my other problems. In a few months, I changed my business to selling shirts because I realized there was no money in video game addiction. A year after starting my business, I dropped out of my criminology PHD program at the University of South Florida to run my business full time which by then had changed to helping clients with Facebook and Google ads based on my experience failing to do them successfully for myself.

In 2013, I starting sharing everything I knew for free on YouTube because I hoped it would help me get more clients. By April 2014, I was nearly bankrupt after failing at 15+ different business models. I was also nearly dead from trying to drink the pain away and fortunately the fear of death motivated me to get into recovery. Being in recovery motivated me to focus more on being of true service to others and less on what I would get out of it. I started making courses online with Udemy which soon turned into my first real business. I partnered with as many talented instructors as I could and learned from top instructors how to get my courses the most sales.

In 2015, I tried making some inspirational videos sharing what I learned in recovery and got an amazing response on YouTube. To make the background on my videos more interesting, I started making the inspirational videos while playing video games. To make a more helpful website, I hired a freelancer to convert the videos into blog posts including this about page originally.
