Today’s guest is wise far beyond his 20 years on the planet and one of the greatest examples of what it means to be human that I have come to know. 

Brandon Farbstein inspires millions of people across the globe with his universal message of living life on your own terms and innovating your own solution. At just 19, Brandon is a renowned empowerment and TEDx speaker, Gen Z activist and author. Brandon was diagnosed with a rare form of dwarfism at the age of 2, and has turned his life experience of suffering, isolation, and victimhood to empowerment, impact and influence.

In this conversation we cover everything from what lead to Brandon’s darkest moments, what allowed him to overcome them- and how he navigates his life today on his own terms, instead of everyone else’s.
