As a young boy, Jason Michaels was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome. The diagnosis could have stopped him in his tracks but he chose to chase his career in acting and later as a magician. Today he combines his love of performing, sharing his story, and also training people on how to be resilient. You’ll love Jason’s journey to get to the top and his thoughts on branding.
