Michael Gallagher’s childhood was the antithesis of the All American Family. With a mother completely ensconced in being a Jehovah’s Witness and his addicted father in and out of prison, Michael quickly learned to escape using alcohol and cocaine. In his book, Waking Up: A Guide for Transformation, Michael tells his story of how he finally woke up and began using tools that transformed his life. Join Rich as he chats with Michael and hear first hand how he came back from addiction to live a life full of love and gratitude.
Michael has spent a lifetime studying what causes
some people to adapt and transform to match
their circumstances while others struggle to find
their way. In his research on transformation,
Michael realized there were only a few big blocks
that everyone needed to build upon to create
lasting change. He is the author of Waking Up: A
Guide for Transformation, and has a passion for
sharing these life-changing tools with others.
Michael Gallagher has successfully built several
businesses, overcoming challenges that should
have left him a statistic.
When Michael is not speaking at conferences, coaching or writing you ‘ll
most likely find him traveling with his family, learning about something new or telling one of his four daughters a dad joke.
