In this episode, entrepreneur and financial expert Larry Sprung shares his journey of overcoming loss and tragedy in his family to help others. Larry's experiences taught him valuable lessons about the importance of mental health and seeking help when needed.
“If you're walking down the street and there's a pebble on the ground, and you pick up the pebble, and you put it right here up against your eye. It looks like a boulder. You're never gonna get around it. But if you take that same pebble and you put it out at arm's length and then you look at it, you're like, well, it's just a pebble. I could get around that thing”
Larry's mother's battle with cancer instilled a level of fight and battle in him. He also shares how his brother-in-law's suicide reinforced the idea that life is short and that if we're not healthy, the outcomes could be detrimental. As a result, Larry became passionate about raising awareness for mental health, serving on the National Board of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention for over 12 years and raising over $1.7 million through the Keith Milano Memorial Fund with his wife, Denise.
Larry encourages others to prioritize relationships and family and to create a life by design, not by default.
