Before becoming a celebrated wellness expert, motivational speaker, author of a best-selling memoir, Co-Founder of Greenhouse Tea Company, and Gwyneth Paltrow's pal, Quentin Vennie was a guy from a single-parent home in Baltimore who was told that he'd never amount to much. He was someone who fought addiction, battled anxiety, sold drugs in the heroin capital of America, escaped death, and dropped out of college three separate times.
After years of fighting a war of anxiety, depression, and addiction, he set out on a journey to heal himself. Quentin successfully overcame his addictions and developed a system to manage his anxiety disorder better with nothing more than faith and determination.
Quentin has been publicly celebrated by notable figures in the world of wellness for his unbelievable road to recovery. His transformation has inspired thousands worldwide and has raised global awareness of anxiety, depression, and addiction. He is living proof that you have the power and ability to unlock unimaginable strength no matter your background.
