Disrupt Yourself Podcast with Whitney Johnson

Feb 23, 2021

Tragedy often brings unwanted change, pushing us onto new and unfamiliar S Curves. What do you do when faced with the unthinkable? Do you back up? Do you freeze? Or do you rise up and scale the curve before you?

Our guest today, Lewis Howes, was faced with the unthinkable. In 2001, while just a senior in college, his family was thrust into a life altering experience that would eventually set Lewis on a crash course with a new future as the founder of the School of Greatness.

Lewis is relentless in his practice of personal disruption. He is a New York Times best-selling author, a former pro football player, a collegiate all-American athlete in football and the decathlon, a successful entrepreneur and wanting to go to a school that taught in the way that he learned, Lewis launched The School of Greatness podcast in 2013.

Lewis Howes is also dyslexic. He's been sexually abused. He struggled in school. When he was eight years old, his 19-year-old brother went to prison. Scared, embarrassed, ashamed, Lewis was determined to be great... and so, the journey of disruption began.
