Overcoming Debilitating Anxiety with Dominic McCarthy

by Jan 11, 2021

Life always finds a way.

Before he became the man he is today, Dominic was essentially a shut-in. The anxiety he suffered from drove him to a life of functioning around his mental health rather than tackling it head on. 

A lot of us have struggled with anxiety at different points in our lives, however Dominic’s was on a completely different level. Debilitating in every way, constant panic attacks, hardly able to eat or drink at times, and yet at several key points in his life he would figure out how to work with it or around it. 

However one day, he had to make a choice… his family’s hand had been completely shredded by layoffs and an economic recession.

So he forced himself out the door and went door to door to make money. His life’s story is harrowing, inspiring, and truly one of the most intense I’ve heard! Today, he’s a successful businessman and it only came once he resolved to push past his limits for the survival of his family. 

How did he go from an anxiety overloaded house-husband to successful businessman?  You’ll have to listen to find out.
