This is a really great feeling.
After years and years of working on Sober Nation, I feel that things are finally coming together. The problem for me wasn’t so much about how big the brand got, it is that I have so many ideas that it can be hard for me to stay focused.
As of right now, the Sober Nation brand includes this website, the Sober Podcasts, the New Lyfe Clothing line and Sobriety Engine, which is a collection of online courses I am building dedicated to helping people in their own recovery.
Some days I look at everything and I feel like I know what I’m doing, other days I find myself with impostors syndrome. But as I sit here writing this I can honestly say that I feel very content and confident in the work I am doing and I know that people are getting tons of value out of Sober Nation.
Thank you all so much. You changed my life. Enjoy this week’s newsletter

That’s not easy.
