Episode 09: Honoring Your Truth with Casey Gerald

Hello loves.

Casey Gerald has witnessed every facet of the American dream. From his harrowing childhood in Texas to his tenure at the heights of America’s elite institutions to his journey through the cities and towns of the American heartland where his spent his recent years as co-founder and CEO of MBAs Across America. Now, his work as a writer, speaker, and business leader centers on the question, “Will the American dream survive another generation?”

Casey received an MBA from Harvard Business School and a B.A. in Political Science from Yale College. He began his career in Economic Policy and Government Innovation at the Center for American Progress. He has been featured on MSNBC, in The New York Times, Financial Times, The Guardian, and he’s even appeared on the cover of Fast Company; which also named him one of the most creative people in business. He currently serves on the Advisory Board of NPR’s, Generation Listen, and is the author of There Will Be No Miracles Here.

In this episode, Casey and I discuss how we’ve both experienced others using our stories to validate or dismiss the suffering of others, the role God has played in both of our journeys, how he was able to share from such a vulnerable place in his memoir, why it was important for him to shift his focus from success to wellness, and so much more!
