While we may not all openly identify as “addicts,” we are all in some way addicted to something that is detrimental to us in ways that we often don’t recognize. It could be drugs, food, social media, work habits, exercise, yelling, destructive thought patterns, or something else. Whatever it is, we are all prone to becoming addicted to things that don't serve us.

This has never been more true than it is right now. For the last two years, the pandemic has forced us into isolation, allowing addictions to subtly creep in and using them in an attempt to numb us during our most vulnerable moments.

To talk about addiction and how it applies to all of us, I'm excited to speak to my friend Jesse Harless. Jesse is the CEO of Entrepreneurs in Recovery and the bestselling author of If Not You, Then Who? which Thrive Global named it one of the Top 10 Books That Will Take You from Surviving to Thriving in 2021.

In this powerful conversation, Jesse and I talk about the struggles that so many people face in the wake of the pandemic—and what to do if you or someone you know needs help.

(I also get vulnerable and share the addiction I’ve struggled with that I have never publicly shared before!)


  • The wake up call that changed the trajectory of Jesse’s life at 22.
  • How emotions can become addictive–and why so many people are struggling with isolation addiction right now.
  • How I developed an addiction to cannabis oil capsules on my cancer journey.
  • How the FEARS Recovery Toolkit helps people find purpose in the face of addiction.
  • What you should do if you or someone you know is struggling with an addiction right now.
  • How to start unpacking the trauma at the root of addictions.
  • What Jesse is doing to facilitate high-level conversations in the addiction, recovery, and mental health space.
