About This Class

Watch this class today to unlock an autobiographical experience you will never forget!  I just finished filming Speaker Meeting 2017 in January and February 2017 to share my experience, strength, and hope with my addictions in candid detail featuring the following with the hope you can identify and learn from my experience!  

  1. My life story such as where I grew up and how I live today.
  2. Video gaming addiction from beginning to end including starting my business to help with it in the middle.
  3. Using food to change how I felt and unconscious eating behavior with a 14 year weight gain and loss journey.
  4. Emotional roller coaster with depression, anxiety, fear, panic attacks, frustration, annoyance, and anger transitioning into a life of peace, joy, and freedom today.
  5. A day and life lived in recovery now with an in depth view of what I do one day at a time to be free of the six forces that guided my life in misery which today help me stay connected with my higher power.

While you get the majority of the class here, Skillshare does not allow explicit content which means I am not allowed to include the discussions on sex, alcohol, or gambling in this class.  If you would like the extended version which includes these, would you rent or buy it on YouTube at or on my website at  The following sections are omitted from this version of the class:

  • An intimate journey for mature viewers only inside my body shame and problems with sex.
  • The full two hour speaker meeting of my alcoholism where I share what it was like, what happened, and what life is like now.
  • Where gambling and money issues left me nearly bankrupt and ready for the end.

Thank you for learning about Speaker Meeting 2017 with me and I hope you enjoy it!

Speaker meeting is autobiographical story about real life, dealing with addiction and everyday challenges. Jerry is candid about his past, what he's gone through (even the parts that most would feel uncomfortable revealing) and how it's made him a more enlightened person. As a listener, he is able to help you see a light when dealing with these issues yourself. I did enjoy this a lot, thanks for being candid... this was highly inspirational.
