Podcast #103 Dyslexia, confidence and an alter ego who turned into a dynamic character of a novel. Ed Calkins
We have a very special and mind-bending episode this week. It’s all about a man with dyslexia who worked 34 years as a driver for a newspaper company and recently published a book with himself as the main character.
We talked about constantly reinventing yourself, a trait that most dyslexics have. We continuously find ways to change something in ourselves and what we do.
