Jack Grey Speaker, Award Winning Author, Life and Business Coach.
Jack was born in religiously divided household. His father was a Catholic and his mother a Jehovah's Witness. He followed his mother's faith for 36 years. In 2013 he started questioning his faith which lead to his exit few years later. Due to large family being Jehovah’s Witnesses and his position as an elder it was extremely difficult to leave. Today he is a proud father of two daughters and a happy husband. He owns businesses and real-estate at the same time teaches people how to become financially free. However, he found passion in helping ex Jehovah’s Witnesses rebuilding their life after they exit. If you wish to contact him please write to email@example.com
