Tony Grebmeier on the Power of Community, Accountability on Personal Reinvention and Leading a Successful Inc. 500 Business [PODCAST 64]


What could happen in your future if you could make your past work for you? It’s an incredible thought, isn’t it?


Today’s guest, Tony Grebmeier has lived that story and continues to live it day by day as he seeks to add blessings and benefit to the lives of those he meets. On this episode of Growth to Freedom, Tony shares his powerful story of personal failure, addiction and the road back to wholeness. It’s a story that traverses many highs and lows and ends with a man on fire to bring help to those who are ready to help themselves.

This is one of those inspiring stories that could turn someone’s life around, so make sure you not only listen to it yourself, but share it with others as well.

“Everything I have is a byproduct of me
admitting that I need help.”

~ Tony Grebmeier


Tony recognizes that his fast track to the bottom was precipitated by his unwillingness to allow others into his life. The way he says it is that he “spent a lifetime pushing people away.” But once he came to the realization that he needed the help of others and that many people had been placed into his life to BE that help, he began to make the long climb upward.

Now he is at a place few entrepreneurs reach: co-founder of an Inc. 500 company (Ship Offers) and fiercely focused on adding value and blessing to the lives of everyone he meets. Tony’s story is an example of what can happen when you begin connecting with people on deep levels and allowing those who care about you to speak truth into your life.

Be sure to pass this story along to others. As much as any conversation you’ve heard on  Growth to Freedom, this one has the potential to truly change the lives of those who might need it most right now, and you can be an instrument of that change through sharing it. Thanks for caring.
