Join Patti Katter (Wake Up With Patti Katter) and Erik Allen (TopRated MMA & Bearded Biz Entrepreneur) as they chat about his life experiences and his businesses. He shares a heartfelt story about his childhood, having experienced a lot at a young age, having to get out of debt, but having a changed life and getting married while getting out of it! He also talks more about his podcasts and his reasons for starting them.
By the end of this episode you will learn about facing adversity, getting your life together, and helping out others.
Erik is a man of integrity, work ethic and an overcomer. Growing up with a complicated childhood and broken home, to raising himself from the age of 14. Unfortunately finding trouble along the way desperately trying to fill the gaping voids in his life. As a young man Erik found himself empty and tired of settling for less.
Now, Erik and his wife of nearly 15 years and their two children live in Northern Idaho and live a humble and blessed life. Together they are breaking the cycles handed down to them of addictions, depression, abuse, and lies. They are leaving a new legacy for their next generation built on a biblical foundation.
Along with being the sole provider for his family, Erik is an entrepreneur and avid MMA fan. Which he has created the best MMA podcast of the northwest. He believes in giving back and honoring those that have served our country. With his companies Top Rated MMA and The Bearded Biz Show he is able to do just that. By lifting others up and giving back to the community and veterans through great organizations like Hire Heroes USA.
Another one of the ways Erik is able to give back is by sharing his story and encouraging others, no matter what path they are on to find hope and purpose. Erik’s natural approach ability and heart for people make him a great speaker for different events and podcasts. He knows that sometimes having the opportunity to meet someone and hear their story and how they’ve overcome is the courage someone might need to find new strength in their own battle.
