Hung suffered from a gambling addiction for 8 years and racked up over $200,000 in losses and a massive amount of debt. He went through depression and suicidal thoughts regularly, and felt like he was stuck. He hated his job but needed to stick with it in order to pay his debts from gambling. Stuck in a vicious cycle, it looked like there was no hope.
Today, Hung is a successful author, entrepreneur and leader in the field of personal development and creating company cultures that work better for investors, entrepreneurs, employees and customers.
