Disadvantages can go many ways. They can either cripple a person mentally, physically and spiritually or the opposite. Taking a disadvantage or disability and making a choice to not let it be a impediment in your life can be arduous and lonely. However, the rewards along the way to self-improvement can be magical. What this requires is a definitive choice and a process. 

Our guest today, Scott Sonnon will discuss what his process was (and continues to be) from coming from very humble beginnings of a learning disability, poverty, debilitating joint disease and obesity to being a world champion martial artist, successful trainer, educator, businessman and loving father and husband.
