What up, Get Up Nation®! My name is Ben Biddick, the Creator and Host of the Get Up Nation® Podcast and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player and CEO of Lurong Living, Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with Rene Michele, the author of “Battle Scars Are Beautiful: From Victim to Victory.” She is a survivor of sexual abuse that began in childhood and is committed to teaching others how to both identify and prevent childhood abuse. As a speaker she shares with individuals, organizations, and communities how “lack of self-worth, dysfunctional family systems, and maladaptive thinking all contribute to children not being able to identify or protect themselves from dangerous situations.” Rene is the first in her family to attend university and after achieving her degree, went on to earn qualifications in Counseling, Management, and Advanced Resume Writing where she helps others recognize their greatness and communicate it effectively to advance her clients into their greatness. She is the successful owner and Director of Career Path Resumes and the Director of a Crisis Care Community outreach organization. Today she continues to work in the child safety and disability sectors. It is my honor to welcome Rene to the Get Up Nation Podcast, as she is a profound example of what Get Up Nation® is! She refused to allow experiences of domestic violence, bankruptcy, abusive marriage, repeated sexual assaults, and episodes of mental illness define her life. I can’t wait to share with you Rene’s #fierce and #resilient voice that will help you find the inner tenacity you may have never known you had. Rene, thank you for joining me on the Get Up Nation® Podcast!
