Steve Madden


I just saw an awesome documentary on the shoe designer,Steve Madden. It tells the story of him overcoming alcoholism, drug addiction and becoming successful. It was a really inspiring story. The story is useful and accurate about what it takes to make it in sobriety as well as the business world. I could not recommend it more. It is called MADDMAN and is on Netflix. God Bless!

Another one I came across by accident the other day is the story of the my pillow guy. He was a former crack addict that went on to become a millionaire. There are a few interviews on youtube.
