Many people have great moms. Mine is a hero.
When I started school teachers discovered I was falling behind very quickly. By 8 I was diagnosed with multiply learning disabilities, by 10 not only could I not read or add, but I was in classes with the mentally challenged kids on the other side of the school. Honestly, I was humiliated.
My mom never gave up on me.
In fact, twice a week she made sure I was going to tutors and learning disabled experts.
And over the next 15 years she fought every day to make sure I could become the man I was destine to be.
She did such a great job that by 26 I was hosting my own talk show on the number one station in Phoenix and I remember reading on the air live one day and saying to myself, "Dude, look at you now! You couldn't even read in front of a classroom and now you're reading live on the air in front of 100,000 people!"
I'm a success because of my mom.
And I couldn't be more thankful and fortunate that I am.
Thank you mom for not only believing in me, but making sure I could believe in myself.
I'm so grateful for you.
You really are a hero!
