Good episode? Give it some love!
If you’ve ever been told anything you wanted to achieve was impossible, whether your health, your wealth, career, family, sports, business, arts, or otherwise, then do we have the one-in-a-million show for you.
Today I’ll be talking with Aaron Baker, a true hero of mine, who also happens to be one of the most able-bodied recovering quadriplegic athletes, business owner’s and inspiring people out there. Since his injury, he’s walked 20 miles across death valley, ridden his bike not once, but twice across the country. Go-carted, mountain biked, and does more in a day that doctors say was ‘impossible’ than most people will do in a lifetime.
And that’s what I want to talk with him about today. About believing in yourself no-matter what the experts tell you to achieve the impossible…or at least give it your best shot! We’ll talk about getting started, overcoming odds, and going after your dreams, like there’s no tomorrow.
That plus we’ll talk about pink training wheels, mountain-biking mammoth, go-karts and red bull, and why having your toe-nails painted all the colors of the rainbow, just may be the greatest gift in the world!
