Turn Life's Tragedy Into Triumph

We've had some really inspiring guests on The School of Greatness.

In fact, I think it’s safe to say every guest is incredible – that’s why they’re on the show.

But today’s guest is a cut above the rest.

She not only has won world championships and an Olympic bronze medal, she’s made it to the finale on Dancing with the Stars, is a NYT bestselling author, has founded an incredible non-profit, gave a TED talk that has millions of views, and toured the country with Oprah.

Oh, and she is a double leg amputee as well.

"There's endless possibilities if you're willing to work for it."  

Amy Purdy is an incredible woman who has weathered some of the hardest challenges in life – including a near death experience at the age of 19 – which shaped her into the amazing inspiration she is today.

We dive into the entire story of how she lost her legs, what it took to get back into snowboarding, how she has created such incredible things since then, and her perspective on the good that has come from it.

This is a special episode and Amy and I would both LOVE for you to share it with as many people in your life as you can. This is the message of greatness I am passionate about inspiring others with – let’s do it!

Welcome to the amazing world of limitless possibility with Amy Purdy in Episode 336.
