EP 227: Wisdom Tree – Chris Haddad, “My brain is a very frightening place”
In This Episode
“I hear stories about how horrible I was to people, and I say, ‘I’m sure that’s true, and I’m very sorry… but I have no recollection of it’.”
If you’ve ever woken up after a wild night cringing because you can’t quite remember everything you did or said the night before, but you’re pretty damn sure some of it was… out of character… that’s pretty much Chris Haddad’s entire adulthood.
Chris was 39 and into his second marriage when he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Suddenly his erratic behavior, crippling anxiety, and ability to produce near genius level sales copy in a single mad rush that would leave him exhausted for days – all made sense.
“I’ve had people say, “I would love to get inside your brain. I say, ‘No you wouldn’t. It’s a very frightening place’.”
I’d been hearing Chris say for awhile now that he “was a real dick” in the past, but things are different.
I concurred with the former, and was curious about the latter.
I’m happy to say he truly does seem and sound like a different person now.
We discuss his journey through physical and mental agony, his copywriting process, and what’s next for “Mr. Moneyfingers”
