Today I am speaking to Geoff Roberts, the general manager of Power FM radio Toowoomba. Many of the people I have spoken to on this show have been simply exceptional people from multi millionaires to university professors, authors and business owners. My aim is to show you that this dyslexia thing can be gift and to introduce you to people who have lived their lives with it. Now Marianne Wolff, somewhere in her book says that not all dyslexic people are extraordinary and putting that idea into their minds like I am doing is not always the best thing to do. I think Geoff is pretty exceptional, but in the same breath he is just a normal bloke and though owning a radio station sounds very impressive it is a small businesslike many small businesses with an owner works way to hard for probably way to little like most small business owners. So I would love to know what you think, would you like to hear more people like Geoff?
Takeaways From This Episode:
- Geoff feels that his reading speed has stunted his chances working for someone else in the radio industry
- So many dyslexics feel like Geoff when he says you can overcome anything if you put your mind to it.
