This guy blew me away with his story about his illnesses. At the age of 18 years old he was diagnosed with cancer, an age you wouldn’t expect. His story was so powerful and that is what we aim for, with little effort because it just comes natural to our guests. Brian is on a mission to help as many people as he can that suffer with ADHD, Chronic illnesses, and many more conditions. I love how brain could to tell his story and what he does with complete confidence.
WHAT’S INSIDE THE INTERVIEW WITH IS BRIAN R KNIGHT?
Brian is a long-life worrier that has been diagnosed with so many illnesses. Brian gets his days where he feels in a funk, but he wants to be supportive to others despite him getting tired due to his illnesses. He likes to stay focused so that he doesn’t go into that black hole. Even though he falls of the horse he gets back on because he doesn’t want to be sucked into self-pity. We spoke about our co-host, Nicole because she has chronic illnesses that are rare. Brian’s joints and nerves hurt often but he fights through it so that he can do what he loves and that is helping others that are in his situation or similar. Brian believes that there is always something new to learn. Brian spends a lot of time working with two groups of people to parents and people with autism. He loves to focus on mindset before skill set.
