Who is Eddie Park?
Author, Speaker, Consultant
Hi, my name is Eddie H. Park.
I was raised by a single mom because my dad left when I was five years old. My entire life I tried to become a better version of my dad to justify my mom’s hardships and shame. I became a people-pleaser and a hyper-achiever because I thought that was the only way I’d receive love and acceptance.
I became so obsessed with achievement like being a Full Tuition Scholarship recipient at UCLA, becoming an investment banker at a bulge bracket firm, and getting into a PhD program in the UK.
But achieving success never relieved the pain of my childhood. I realized there was no end to becoming the man my father should have been.
And then, I made a choice to tell myself a new story.
I discovered a purpose that goes beyond my pain:
to transform lives and help break the power of shame,
which I talk about in my book.
I authored a book called The Shame Myth: 7 Steps to Advance Your Career, Relationships, and Purpose. The book will become available for pre-order on Jan 17, 2017 at Amazon.com. Watch the 2 min trailer below!
