How wrong he was..
His life was shattered to pieces when several of his business partners were imprisoned on corruption charges (he maintains his innocence). Hubert was stripped of all of his assets and controlling interest in the companies he spent his life building. His wife divorced him and took custody their daughter, leaving him emotionally destroyed. He quickly turned to alcohol to cope with the pain. One day he realized it was not the answer to his problems and he still had much of life to live and experience even though he had hit rock bottom.
