Despite all these challenges, he has taken the stand for a quality of life that’s reached millions of people around the world including Richard Branson, President Clinton and the 14th Dalai Lama. Sean’s most recent book is called Get Off Your “But”. In this episode, Sean shares his own journey into finding his life purpose by becoming unstoppable.
