Interview

Condition: Retinoschisis

What is your profession and why did you decide to choose this field? 

I am an accomplished athlete, adventurer, author, and speaker

What is the most rewarding thing about what you do?

Empowering people traditionally swept to the sidelines of life. I founded an organization called No Barriers, which helps people with challenges, tap into the human spirit, break through barriers, and contribute to the world.

What is your advice to all the other VIPs around the world who don't believe they can be successful in the area of their interest because of their disability?

You start right now, and you start with what you’ve got. You iterate relentlessly. You fail, you bleed, you iterate and you take all that iteration in those systems, strategies, and that team and you combine it with the human spirit and you will go amazing places.
