Nelson Lauver is a nationally syndicated radio broadcaster (150+ radio stations), a dyslexic, an award winning author, an entrepreneur, a storyteller and foundation founder.

Nelson’s inspiring journey of triumph, from an emotionally and physically abused illiterate boyhood, to an actualized adulthood–as an poignant agent of change, has inspired thousands. Nelsons story is just as much an exploration on the many forms of intelligence as it is a study on the art of resilience.

“My parents...
