Unlocking Your Potential: From Aspergers to 7 Figure Entrepreneur

In this episode of The Illuminator Podcast, Samantha J is joined by Lewis Huckstep,  a beacon of self-transformation and personal growth. Starting out as an anxious young man diagnosed with Asperger's, his perseverance led him to be a professional athlete at a very young age. He later ventured into the fitness industry and, by 22, owned three franchises as a 7 figure business owner. However, realising that this success didn't align with his values and visions, he bravely pared down his business. Today, Lewis's primary focus is coaching in mindset and leadership, helping business owners build fulfilling relationships and scale their operations. His perspective on spirituality and authenticity are revealed on his podcast, The Lewis Huckstep Experience.

When you do what you love, you are lit up, you are illuminated, you are loved, you are inspired, you are energetic, you are curious. - Lewis Huckstep

By being able to understand who you most authentically are and living in alignment with that, that's when you eliminate the most. So it shines brightest when you let it shine freely and you're removing those. - Lewis Huckstep

Find direction and purpose in your life, and then find a way to express it in the materialistic world that we live in. Whether it's through your career or just a passion project, when you have energy and passion behind it, you can make a difference. - Lewis Huckstep
