Lewis Howes: High-Level Athlete, Entrepreneur, & a New York Times Best Seller

This interview I have is with a very special guest and good friend Lewis Howes! You probably heard of him; he is currently a New York Times bestseller for his book called “The School of Greatness”.

In this interview Lewis shares an amazing story of how he went from a high-level athlete to a career ending injury which made him go on the path of entrepreneurship. Nowadays Lewis teaches phenomenal courses at Lewishowes.com where he holds webinars on how to hold webinars for your business, and how to build the life that you want.

This interview is great because we got a chance to talk about a lot of things like how Lewis learned, how he assimilates information rapidly, how he finds mentors, and how he takes action. Lewis shares a surprising story about which story out of his entire book, is the the most impactful. The story is profound about overcoming obstacles and dealing with adversity.

So I know you’ll love this interview; please let me know what you think of it. And share with those who could benefit from it!
