Today I’m excited to welcome Doug Stewart to The Quarter Life Comeback podcast.

Doug Stewart has a super inspiring story. At a young age, Doug was diagnosed with sleep apnea, ADD, dyslexia, narcolepsy and a whole host of other conditions. He was told that basically, he was stupid.

In fact, Doug couldn’t write the alphabet at age 11 and pushed through all of school. However, thanks to his height and athleticism, he made his way into college where he met an academic advisor who refused to let him fail.

Doug is now a TEDx speaker, writer, facilitator, trainer and expert on mentorship. Plus, he’s also 6’7″ with good hair and a better beard (we’re basically twinning it in this episode).

Alright, let’s go hang out with Doug…
