“Biography of a Struggling Student:  My Story”. This is what Brian Seth Perler sends to me when I ask for his bio. Hah! I certainly can relate to that- I was that kid too. He struggled really hard during high school and then failed out of two colleges, finally returning home and moving in with his grandmother. Things were not great. Through keeping his chin up and repeatedly asking for help- which was also tough to do, he finally got a minimum wage job working with students at a company called ‘At Your School’. There he found something that he was good at, a wonderful mentor and a passion that continues to fuel his path. I hope you will feel encouraged by getting to know Seth Perler and ‘the rest of his story’ in this episode of Faster Than Normal.  Enjoy!

    Sharing this with my 15 year old son today! 3 weeks ago I withdrew him from his large public high school after he said to me ,”Mom I’m unfixxable. Why do you waste your time with me? It’s hopeless “ right then I knew it was time. The system was failing my kid. I was failing my kid. Between his ADHD, anxiety & depression; school was just one more thing he felt like a failure doing. This podcast reinforces our decision. Thank you!!
