How to Turn Your Life Around and Inspire Others

How to Turn Your Life Around and Inspire Others

David Jueno is the founder of The Sports Business Club, an organisation which funds grassroots sport and charity / community projects across the UK.  He also works as a director for Gillingham Town Football Club.  As a youngster, he enjoyed playing football and the classical guitar.  He spent most of his adult life working as a sales professional until his life changed due to a cocaine addiction.  After a couple of years recovering from a very tough period, he has now turned his life around and inspires other people.

In this emotional episode, David Jueno talks about the impact of bullying as a youngster, football in his youth, being a successful sales professional.  As well as drug addiction and losing everything, to rehab and now to his goal of impacting positively on other people’s lives.  

Key Takeaways include:

  • Everyone is worth something.
  • Allow yourself to make mistakes.
  • The minute you open your mouth to start talking about how you feel is the minute half of your problems disappear.
  • Be kind to people, you don’t know what people are going through.
  • Be careful not to have unrealistic expectations of yourself, simply do your best and be committed.
