It’s Francis here.
I hope you’re having a wonderful Monday.
It’s October 11th as I’m writing this, which means tomorrow is October 12th.
And October 12th is a special date for me.
Why? Because seven years ago, on October 12th, 2014 — I nearly died
. Seven years ago, I was desperate, drug-addicted, depressed, and running away from problems in the worst way possible
On October 12th, I injected a fat spoonful of opiates into my veins. Less than an hour later, I overdosed. Soon after, I woke up in a Jackson, Mississippi hospital tied to the bed.
It was the worst day of my life…But it was also the best ever. Because it was the start of my new life. The beginning of a new chapter. I made a promise to myself and my mother that I’d be better. That I’d make the most of my second chance.
Over the last seven years, I have:
● Taught 100s of students how to speak English in Spain/Catalonia & Hungary
● Wrote a book (with another on the way)
● Learned 5 languages
● Built a 6-figure copywriting career
● Traveled to 25+ countries
● Spoken on 20+ podcasts
● Generated over $20m for my clients through email
● Met 100s of beautiful, amazing people all over the world
