WPWeekly Episode 186 – Inspirational Conversation With Lewis Howes

In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I are joined by Lewis Howes, host of the School of Greatness podcast. Lewis shares his story of achieving his lifelong dream of becoming a professional football player, only to have it crushed by an injury. Without a backup plan in place and limited skills, Lewis became depressed and suffered some financial hardships.

Thanks to WordPress and influential people like Syed Balkhi, Tim Ferriss, and Joel Comm, Lewis was able to reinvent himself into a motivational speaker and a highly successful content marketer. Lewis has been featured in Forbes magazine, FastCompany, Time, ESPN, and several other publications.
