I am always inspired by those who know they are not perfect and do more with less. OR DARE TO BE DIFFERENT..

Mostly because I used to complain about “things” I didn’t have and certainly did not appreciate what god gave me in my body and my health.

I recently met a man who blew me away, both with his attitude and day to day routine, to live life all out!

Todd Swank AKA Short Arm guy was born with Holt Oram Syndrome leaving him having to fight an uphill battle with the less than ideal limbs, but that didn’t stop him from smiling, inspiring, and having a positive impact on all of those around him!

Nothing was going to set this man back!

He was an athlete, always an optimist, a comedian and is a hero to many.

This is just one part of his incredible story.

I absolutely loved talking to Todd about the journey he has been on, the always positive attitude, and how he lives a life of fulfillment.

Get ready for some powerful moments as you listen to Todd Swank tell his story in Episode #10 on the show! Enjoy as much as I did having this wonderful human being share his message!
