Purpose 98: Finding Purpose with Captain Awesome – Byron Taylor

I hope you are ready for some amazing truth bombs today because I am literally talking to Captain Awesome today. Byron Taylor (AKA Captain Awesome) is a spirited speaker, trainer, and coach. He has competed in world championships in public speaking and is the co-author of The Psyche of Success. Byron Taylor has found his calling as an inspirational speaker, but the story of how he got there is absolutely magnificent. God is clearly using Byron in incredible ways.

Byron had to walk through incredible hardship to reach the level of clarity and wisdom he has attained today. I am thankful that he had the chance to openly talk about childhood trauma, depression in adulthood, and figuring out life with God one leap of faith at a time. Byron is going to share his best pieces of wisdom for going after your purpose, facing fear, and listening to the voice of God. His stories are all very real and really funny. No one shares a story like Byron! Dive in with us today to experience the wild ride for yourself!
