When Zachary Babcock considers the success in his life, he doesn’t point to the popular podcast that he hosts; he talks about the small steps and incremental growth he works toward each day. Let’s stop getting so caught up in the splashy headlines and elevate the value of faithfully working day in and day out toward a noble purpose. Learn more from Zachary’s fascinating perspective by listening to this episode of BeFulfilled!Hitting rock bottom.Let’s face it; every success story doesn’t look the same. Sometimes business leaders and entrepreneurs start from a long line of people who have done what they want to do. Then there are those who are so tired of the hand that was dealt them that they claw their way to where they are today. The latter path described is a glimpse into Zachary Babcock’s story. Zachary is a former drug addict who spent over five years of his life in prison. After missing the birth of his twin sons when he went to prison a second time, he decided to completely transform his life so he could be a responsible father. All the opportunities in the world weren’t handed to Zachary; he’s had to fight for every inch.Root for the underdog!Brushing off that time in prison and all the fall out it created wasn’t easy for Zachary. Who said the story of an underdog would be an easy one? Rather than fighting the mantle of an underdog, Zachary embraced it! He took matters into his own hands when he couldn’t find a job and began his journey as an underdog entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship provided Zachary with an income when no employer would, and in the process, changed his life. He started Underdog Empowerment in 2018, with the goal of sharing the strategies that have helped him overcome great odds. Doesn’t Zachary’s story make you want to root for the underdog? Dive deeper into his fascinating story on this episode of BeFullfied!Why we need a healthy community.Take a good look at the community you’ve built around you. Would you describe your social circle as healthy and supportive or is it more of a mixed bag? While it’s always good to keep a diverse set of people in your community, it’s also important to draw boundaries so you can stay healthy yourself. Have you ever heard the saying, “Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future?” Zachary Babcock would agree with this eye-opening saying. One of the biggest changes over the years and throughout his underdog story comes down to who he spends his time with. In the past, Zachary spent time with friends who wanted to cause trouble, now he has a loving family and spends his time with people who support his vision for a thriving and healthy future.
