About The Podcast

Rock Sandretto is an entrepreneur who, along with his beautiful wife and four children, manages a variety of successful business ventures in the Birmingham area. But if you told him about all that 15 years ago—when he was struggling to kick a drug addiction and his own parole officer told him he probably wasn’t going to be able to do it—he might not have believed you. The road to redemption was a long one that required discipline and the will to do difficult things, and in this week’s podcast Rock talks with The Redeemed’s Nate Dewberry about the many important lessons he learned along the way.
