FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY is Sam Polk’s memoir, from childhood to his thirties. Even though, his story revolves around wall street, and his pursuit of money to the point of addiction, ultimately, as every story about money, it’s about anything but money.
Growing in a dysfunctional family, his upbringing surrounded by violence and abused marked his life, a turmoil that resulted in obesity, drugs, bulimia, and alcohol to fill the void. Moreover, carrying all his wounds into his relationships he suffered even more but began to heal with their help, people that believed in him, and a spiritual counselor.
A journey to redefine his meaning of success through self-awareness, break free from self-destructive behaviors, and change for the better.
