A Seemingly Invisible Disability - The Real Story Behind My Hearing Loss and How it Led to My Superpower - Ep #17

personal development / mindset solo episode Mar 25, 2020

It surprises most people to learn that I have a hearing loss and often leads to a lot of questions, especially since I’ve built my coaching business on the topic of communications.

For today’s episode, I’m going unscripted and getting super raw *bring the tissues* to share with you the real truth behind my seemingly invisible disability (and how it led to my superpower).

P.S… did you know more than 5% of the world's population – or 466 million people – has disabling hearing loss. That’s 432 million adults and 34 million children. While you might not be one of them, you more than likely know someone who struggles with their hearing. I hope this episode gives you some insight into their world.

Was I born with it? No. Am I deaf? No. How has it impacted my life? So. Many. Ways.
