In this episode of “The Journey of My Mother’s Son” podcast, I sit down to talk with Kevin Palmieri.

Kevin is the CFO, Founder & Co-Host of Next Level University, a Global Top 100 Self-Improvement podcast with more than 1,000 episodes reaching over half a million people in more than 125 countries.

He has studied personal development every single day since he had a moment where he thought about taking his life.

Some people find rock bottom…he found out that rock bottom has a basement.

In his mid-20’s, he had it all. A beautiful girlfriend, a high paying job, a sports car, his dream body…but he still ended up sitting on the edge of a bed debating suicide…several times.

After his rock bottom moment, he went all in on self-improvement, he was determined to overcome his anxiety, to overcome his depression. he was determined to live his dream life.

Years later, he hosts a podcast with hundreds of thousands of downloads in over a hundred countries, he and his partner have grown the podcast into a multi six-figure business and have recorded over 1,000 episodes. He has given nearly 150 speeches and had the opportunity to do hundreds of coaching calls.

He realized that the main thing that changed was himself.  He focused on learning what he didn’t know (and unlearning a lot too) and his life started to shift.

He believes in a heart driven, but no BS approach to holistic self-improvement and teaching others how to get to the next level of their lives!
