Welcome to Episode 180 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast we talk with David Greer, entrepreneurial coach, author and facilitator. David shares with us the fascinating story of his life’s journey, including a major issue he overcame that we know can happen to any of us as we’re establishing our career and building our legacy. David delivers a message of hope for anyone suffering from a chemical dependency. He also provides valuable information for business owners who may be dealing with employees with alcohol problems. It’s a revealing discussion for anyone facing this problem themselves or with employees, friends or family members. As David, who now has 12 years of sobriety, explains, it’s “progress, not perfection.”


So if you want to know:

  • How pervasive alcoholism is
  • About “super high performing” alcoholics
  • Why you need discipline to be really successful — in your business or personal life
  • Keys to navigating sobriety
  • The importance of learning to live life on life’s terms
  • Why some people may not be comfortable with another person’s recovery from alcoholism


About David Greer

David Greer joined Robelle, a leading provider of HP3000 solutions, when it was still a start-up and he was studying computer science in college. He eventually became a co-owner and was president of this company until he sold out in 2001. Today David has a mission: to take his 35 years of entrepreneurial experience and share it with other entrepreneurs to accelerate their success. He understands that, working with him, you’ll feel equally scared and hopeful — scared at the audacity of your dreams and hopeful because he’s in your corner to help your dreams become real. A life-long sailor, David relates his personal experiences — in business and in life — to the challenges of growing a business. Successful entrepreneurs learn to harness their efforts to seamlessly blow them in the direction they want to go. You can learn more in his book, Wind In Your Sails, and on his company website, coachdjgreer.com
