Sean Entin - Recovery From Trauma - Live Boldly Podcast with Sara Schulting Kranz

Driving Force Behind Recovery From Brain Injury

Sean Entin was a successful entrepreneur who suddenly had a stroke when he was 39 years old. After many surgeries, doctors told him he would never walk, talk, drive, or be independent again. It has been 10 years since he had his stroke, and he has not only regained his independence — in his recovery process — Sean became the StrokeHacker; learning how the brain works and what it takes to make it better.

His mantra “I can, I shall, I will” helped him through the most difficult times in his life. That knowledge allowed him to teach thousands of people how to do the same.

He is currently a survivor coach, podcast host, and founder of the StrokeHacker Community.
