          Life Coach Mike Bayer Tells 25-Year-Old Gambling Addict Steps To Take To Change His Life


          January 22, 2019

          John says he’s been a gambling addict for the last five years. He says he’s lost close to $60,000, has no job and can’t support himself or his girlfriend and three young sons. The 25-year-old lives in his parents’ basement rent-free and says, “nothing is required of me.”

          John says he’s ready to change but doesn’t know how.

          Dr. Phil, along with Coach Mike Bayer, a life coach, author of Best Self: Be You Only Better, and member of the Dr. Phil Advisory Board, tell John the first step he needs to take is to get a job – and until he has one, his job is to be looking for a job.
