My guest this week is Cam Adair.  Cam is the founder of Game Quitters, the world’s largest support community for video game addiction, with members in 45 countries.

A talented hockey player, Cam’s life took a dramatic turn at the age of 11 when he began to experience intense bullying which led him to drop out of high school not once but twice. He never graduated, never went to college and struggled with depression for many years.

Now as a motivational speaker he travels around the world sharing his message on how we can harness the adversity we face as fuel for growth, connection and purpose. His story has been featured in two TEDx Talks and on major media outlets like FOX.

You can connect with Cam on TwitterInstagram and Snapchat.
