Cheri Garcia

How I Started Over 

Hi! I'm Cheri Garcia. I am a recovering meth addict and alcoholic. And I'm a successful entrepreneur, inventor, consultant, and sought-after keynote speaker.

I grew up in a suburb of Dallas, where I went from being a cheerleader and softball pitcher to a meth dealer before I finished high school.

Later, I got off meth and got married. But I was nowhere near beginning my true journey of recovery.

After a divorce and years of alcoholism and failed business ventures, I quit drinking for good. That step enabled me to build my struggling staffing agency, Cornbread Hustle, into a strong, fast-growing company that is completely unique in its industry.

We focus on helping people with criminal backgrounds and in recovery find transformation through meaningful work. As part of that mission, I created Starting Over: A Guide to Compassionate Self-Empowerment. All of our employees and temp-to-hire staffers take this course to learn how they can move on from addiction and trauma, and become the best versions of themselves.

Instead of limiting this course to our employees, we want to share it with the world. I want to invite you to join us on this journey of self-discovery and growth!
