Ep. 27 - Trey Humphreys

I struggled with how to describe this episode's guest, Trey Humphreys.  His life experience is one of the most unique and self-driven as any I've encountered, and he has more fun than most people you know.  He sums himself up as "Author. Life Coach. Extreme Weirdo."  We'll discuss his weirdo-ness, challenging yourself every day, dealing with fear, fur lining busses, and more.  I hope this conversation makes you think about who you are, what you do, and why you are doing it.  It did for me.

You can find Trey at www.iamtrey.com

And @treygoesglobal on all the social medias.

Enjoy!
