Show Notes

Kabel is an individual who has faced challenging situations in his life, and he embodies the power of living purposefully and believing in oneself.

Kabel begins by sharing his own personal journey and a life-changing moment when he experienced a stroke. This event taught him the fragility of life and the importance of making the most of every day.

Something Interesting About Kabel:

I tick. Yes like a clock I tick. It usually takes people being in a car or in a room with me to slowly figure out there's no clock, I'm not wearing a watch and that the ticking is definitely coming from me. The answer is that at 20 years old I had my aortic heart valve replaced with a prosthetic valve. So I tick.
