NAMI Wakulla Presents Guest Speaker Bob Williamson on Sept. 24

NAMI Wakulla is very fortunate to have as our guest speaker, Mr. Bob Williamson, Author of Miracle on Luckie Street on Monday, September 24, 2012.

Mr. Williamson has a remarkable story to share; how he overcame many personal challenges at a very young age. By the age of fifteen he was an alcoholic which lead to intravenous meth and heroin use. As a young adult he was kicked out of the military as a diagnosed sociopath. Today, Mr. Williamson is completely drug and alcohol free and his story will take us from being homeless to millionaire!

I hope you will join us this Monday, September 24th, at 6:30pm, at the Crawfordville Woman's Club, 64 Ochlockonee Street, behind Hudson Park. Please share this program with your church members, pastors, co-workers, neighbors, friends and family. Mr. Williamson's story is dark, but if you know of some young people in the community who might benefit from hearing his story, I would encourage you to invite them.

If you have any questions regarding NAMI Wakulla or our program please contact our NAMI office at 850-926-1033.

NAMI Wakulla (National Alliance on Mental Illness) cordially invites you to attend:

Date: Monday, September 24, 2012
Place: Crawfordville Woman’s Club, 64, Ochlockonee Street in Crawfordville, FL
Time: 6:30 pm

Featured Guest & Speaker: Mr. Bob Williamson, Author of Miracle on Luckie Street, From Homeless to Millionnaire

About Bob: Renowned businessman and serial entrepreneur Bob Williamson has achieved national acclaim for his business acumen and philanthropic efforts. All told Williamson has founded 11 successful businesses. His largest business accomplishment to date was the establishment of one of the most successful food service technology companies in the United States, Horizon Software International; a company that he sold in 2008 for $75 million cash that revolutionized the institutionalized food service market with its innovative software.

What makes Williamson’s accomplishments all the more inspiring is to understand the tremendous personal challenges that he overcame in his early life which he details in his recent book, Miracle on Luckie Street. His childhood was dark and by the time he was fifteen he was an alcoholic; he attended 19 different schools; he graduated to intravenous meth and heroin use and became a hard core addict; he was extremely violent, carried a .357 Magnum, and became a dangerous criminal committing armed robberies; he was kicked out of the military as a diagnosed sociopath; he spent time in Parrish Prison in New Orleans, he went through a nasty divorce; his family had given up on him; he was homeless, penniless, was a loner that didn’t have a single friend; and didn’t believe in God.

He started at rock bottom, worked hard and smart, started a business, and virtually overnight accumulated a small fortune and achieved what he believed to be the absolute pinnacle of success; but the sudden mountain of cash triggered an avalanche of new problems and soon he was overwhelmed with temptation, arrogance, and sheer lust for more of everything. He was addicted to a new drug – money – but again miraculously overcame his addictions.

Today Bob Williamson is completely drug and alcohol free, he is no longer a slave to the “flash and the cash”, the pride of life, and the lust for unadulterated power. He has been
happily married to the woman of his dreams for 40 years and has been blessed with three successful, happily married sons and seven grandchildren.
