MBP 48. The Price of Heartbreak is Self Awareness - Rick Sharpe

Rick Sharpe is a man on a mission; to raise awareness about emotional struggle and to help others suffering emotionally. Rick wants to demonstrate to others that it is possible to heal from failed relationships and transform your own life in the process.

Rick first became visible when he wrote a book “The Price of HeartBreak”, with the intention to help others suffering from intense emotional heartbreak feel they are not alone”. The thought-provoking read is a refreshing take on the struggles of human existence from the eyes of a man who has opened his heart to emotional vulnerability and enlightenment.

What is exceptional about Rick is his ability, unlike many men, to express raw emotion vulnerably and authentically. He tells stories from the highs of climbing Kilimanjaro to the lows of a deeper emotional abyss and back again.
