Episode 021 - No Labels, No Limits - with Greg Dorst, Authentic Consultant for "The Other Bar"
“So the point is to step into every opportunity that you see, every opportunity that you get. Don't worry about whether or not it might not turn out well. What's wrong with it not turning out well?”
What do King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table have to do with a taxi driver in New York and young man with a dream of being a doctor? How does someone give up practicing law and later become a consultant with a group called “The Other Bar”, made up of alcoholic and drug-addicted to lawyers, judges and law students who need to find a new way? And how does composing and performing original music free someone to be authentic?
Join me in my interview with Greg Dorst as he weaves a path from a dark time to one of great hope and adventure. A great storyteller, Greg’s passion for learning and interest in the human experience emerge as he talks about what it took to turn his life around. Today he is a more compassionate, helpful, and service-oriented man than he was 21 years ago when he was at a low point with no clear way out.
“There was a time in my life when I was practicing law that I was using alcohol to escape from the pressures, the stress, and the difficulties... It made it difficult for me to even want to practice law any longer.” In his usual upbeat, engaging way, Greg shares what he’s learned and how that led to becoming a “change expert” who now works with individuals and organizations that need a path forward.
“I believe that in my own waking up, growing up, cleaning up and showing up, I've found a way to help organizations do the same thing.”
