The Wild Ride of Leadership, Addiction, Entrepreneurship and Relationships with Michel Dash.


"Michael G. Dash is an entrepreneur, author, philanthropist, strategic coach, and the former President and CEO of Parallel HR Solutions, Inc. He is currently in recovery for three different addictions. This journey to hope follows a six-year lawsuit that’s now settled and the sale of his company he spent eleven years building. Michael knows his struggles are not unique to executives and entrepreneurs around the world and his mission now is to positively affect 1 million people in the next 5 years who are dealing with compulsive and addictive behaviors. He gets to lead from empathy and become a much more-fulfilled person while realizing what truly matters in life."



Welcome to a gritty conversation about success. Michael Dash hustled his way to an incredibly successful business, only to find out the costs of grinding it out to the exclusion of other parts of his life. Michael takes us through his ups and downs as an entrepreneur and business man, his struggle with addiction, a year’s long law suit and how curiosity lead him to healing and freedom.


“Just because you are growing your business, doesn’t mean you are growing as a person.” – Michael Dash
