Abstract :

Imagine being born into a family so large that the number one question people ask you is: “do you remember all of your siblings’ names?” Calvin Wayman grew up in a strict fundamentalist religion-he had 1 dad, 4 moms, and 44 brothers and sisters. LetÔ??s face it. Entrepreneurs are often the weird, awkward, “crazy ones” that don’t fit in. And being 1 in a family of 50, Calvin Wayman felt that “out of place” feeling all too well. He grew up on a family farm but knew that he was destined for more. After never stepping foot inside a public school, he ultimately left everything he ever knew to pursue his dream of being an entrepreneur and making his mark on the world. This remarkable story shows that you can turn your biggest obstacles and can turn that into your greatest opportunity.

Biography :

Calvin Wayman is a guy with an unconventional background. He actually comes from a large polygamous family. He grew up with one dad, four moms (yup, FOUR), and forty-four siblings! Three years ago, he quit his day job, transformed multiple areas of his life, and documented everything along the way. Today, he is a best-selling author (“Fish Out of Water”), TEDx Speaker, and has shared the stage with fellow groundbreakers including Brendon Burchard, Mel Robbins, Lewis Howes, and Jay Shetty. His journey has taken him from a cloistered upbringing in Utah, through debt and poor health, to self-actualized prosperity. In sharing his journey, he paints a vivid picture. Through all of his heartbreak, fear, and struggle are moments and feelings that you’ll recognize in your own journey. In his personal transformation, you’ll find lessons and strategies for building your own version of your best self.
