Episode 13: Doug the disruptor

Doug Stewart has a story to share and a mission to fulfill. It’s about looking for mentors in your life, the disruptors, that help you change your thinking, crush limiting beliefs and in turn, to pay it forward. He tells his story skillfully in his Tedx Raleigh talk and shares parts of it with me during our conversation. We talk about Dale Carnegie, Division I college basketball, parenting and, of course, those life changing mentors.  If you know someone in your life who’s struggling in school or not truly seeing their strengths, you’ll want to hear this frank conversation with a man who spends each day watching miracles happen.
