The Beyond 6 Seconds Podcast: Larry Sprung – Founder of Mitlin Financial and advocate for suicide prevention
I recently had the opportunity to be a guest on the Beyond 6 Seconds Podcast hosted by Carolyn Kiell. We had a fantastic conversation about how I entered the financial services business and why I am such an advocate for suicide prevention.
On this episode, Larry discusses the critical events in his life that shaped his career and advocacy:
- How his mother’s long battle with breast cancer led him to a career helping people plan for critical financial events in their lives, and
- How the loss of his brother-in-law to suicide led Larry to become involved with AFSP and, along with his wife Denise, raise more than $1,000,000 for the organization through the Keith Milano Memorial Fund. The fund was created at AFSP in memory of Larry and Denise’s brother-in-law and brother, respectively.
Larry also talks about some of the important work that AFSP is doing to help people “Seize the Awkward” by having potentially life-saving conversations with the people in their lives who may be suicidal, and AFSP’s Project 2025, which aims to lower the suicide rate by 20% by the year 2025.
