Little did he know that his dreams of financial success would take a dark turn, transforming him from stockbroker to drug lord.

In a recent interview on NQI’s Talking True Cases podcast, Mr. Attwood detailed his journey from Wall Street aspirations to running a drug empire.

“I set my eyes on the United States because it was like the Mecca of finance, you know, New York. I had seen the movie, Wall Street. Gordon Gekko. Greed is good. But my value system was distorted,” Attwood said. . in the podcast interview.

Instead of the Big Apple, Attwood ended up in Arizona as a stockbroker at a penny-stock firm, which he described as run by a boss who resembled a mobster Don.

The work environment was intense, with power sales meetings and the belief that “lunches are for wimps.” He encouraged the runners to always be on their feet, smiling and making calls.

In this high-pressure environment, Attwood found himself surrounded by a party lifestyle fueled by drugs and alcohol.

“I was just out of college at 20 and I’m in this office full of Italians from New York, biker gangs delivering meth and cocaine,” he recalled.

Embracing the lifestyle, Attwood began hosting raves and investing in ecstasy and the booming tech market.

He experienced rapid financial success, living in a $1,000,000 home and enjoying the luxuries of his newfound wealth.

However, Attwood lacked the emotional maturity and common sense to understand the consequences of his actions.

“We think we’re above the law, but it always comes to an end and that’s what I tell kids,” Attwood said.

Over time, the pleasure of using drugs gave way to pain, and his promising career in finance turned into a life of crime.

Shaun Attwood is now a renowned YouTuber, speaker, activist, and author.
