Bounced Checks to Private Jets | Hazel Ortega | Ep. 259

In this episode I dive deep into the remarkable journey of Hazel Ortega, a speaker, entrepreneur, author,  psychologist, & more.  Growing up amidst gang violence & poverty in L.A. during the ’80s, Hazel shares her incredible transformation from a survivor to a beacon of hope. From her early struggles to her breakthrough moments, she reveals the pivotal experiences that shaped her path, including a life-changing encounter with a judge who saw potential in her. Hazel’s story is one of resilience, determination, and the power of mindset. She discusses her nonprofit, High Tide Global, which aims to impact a billion lives by 2032 through education & empowerment. Despite her numerous accolades and successes, Hazel remains driven by a deep sense of purpose—to uplift others and inspire them to reach their full potential.
