Show Notes:

This is a special podcast as this person has helped to change my life. I am here with legendary coach, author, speaker, and entrepreneur Ben Newman. He has one of the most unique stories I have heard. His mother was diagnosed with Amyloidosis when he was a child. Though she had this illness, it never stopped her from reframing and being a positive influence in her children’s lives. This, in turn, influenced Ben to become a person that strives to create positivity and change in other people’s lives to this day. You can find him at and on Instagram at “@coachbennewman” and “@continuedfight”.
