In today’s interview we speak with internationally-renowned educator, speaker and author, Dr Reggie Padin.
Reggie was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Immigrating to the U.S. with his parents, from Puerto Rico, he struggled with English and school. Dropping out and emigrating to Canada, as a young father he found himself emptying dumpsters to support his family.
Today Reggie’s mission is to help people to get out of the ‘dumpster’ situations we all find ourselves in.
Topics discussed during this podcast include;
- How do you reprogram your mind when you’re in a dumpster period of your life?
- How can you help others that are going through their own dumpster moments?
- Examples of what can be achieved when we believe in ourselves
- And much more!
