OHustle & Motivate, we sit down with real-life underdogs in the world of sports, entertainment, and more. Through insightful and thought-provoking conversations, we uncover the stories behind these impressive individuals.

We touch on everything — their mindset, how they got started, what they’re up to now, and how they overcame adversity on the path to greatness.

The aim is to show you what you’re capable of.

Realizing that a simple mindset shift opens up a world of possibilities.  Because in the end, you can do anything you believe you can achieve.

When Corey Taylor was born, he was blind in his left eye, partially blind in his right, had no bone structure in his nose, and his skull was caving in. Doctors told his family he’d be dead by the time he hit sixteen and probably deaf, blind, and mentally challenged.
