Ep. 70 Sean Stephenson: World-Renowned Speaker, International Best-Selling Author, Therapist, Coach, and My Most Important Mentor

Today’s interview is a very special one because the man I am interviewing today is the reason I got into personal development in the first place. He was a hero for years but is now a good friend or “friendtor” (friend+mentor) as he likes to say.

Sean is truly one of the most incredible people I know and I am honored to finally have him on this show and to have him as a part of my life.

Sean was born with a rare condition called Osteogensis Imperfecta or “brittle bones disorder” which caused him to suffer more than 200 breaks and fractures by the time he was 14.

What would you do if the brakes on your car gave out when you were coming up to a red light? In today’s episode I’ll share a story about what happened when the brakes on my car completely failed just last weekend.
