Michael Dash is the President and CEO of Parallel HR Solutions, Inc. He is currently in recovery from three different addictions. This journey to hope follows a six-year lawsuit that’s now settled and the sale of his company he spent eleven years building. Michael knows his struggles are not unique to executives and entrepreneurs around the world. He now gets to lead from empathy and become a much more-fulfilled person while realizing what truly matters in life.
Michael has run addiction recovery programs for over five years now. He climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and raised over $100K for LLS and traveled to Bali where he studied Flow Consciousness, meditation, and other practices to overcome past challenges. His message was featured on multiple podcasts and published through Medium and Thrive Global where he has a series called F.A.T.E. From Addict To Entrepreneur.
Michael’s first book Chasing the High is scheduled to release in June 2019. He was recognized in Utah Business Magazine’s 40 under Forty, his company made the Inc 5000 list four years, and Michael appeared as a guest contributor for Forbes and Huffington Post.
