I’m here today with Calvin Wayman, a best-selling author, keynote speaker, and social media entrepreneur. The most inspiring thing about this man is what he has accomplished in such a short time. In the Spring of 2015, he was still working a 9 to 5 job. Feeling stuck and hating his life as an employee, he suddenly quit his day job even before he knew what he was going to do next showing that where there is a will, there is a way. A few months ago, Calvin raced in a 50 mile ultra-marathon just to challenge his body and mind.
He recently published his first book, which debuted on the Amazon top 100 of all books in the success category. His book is called, Fish Out Of Water: The guide to achieving breakthrough and permanently transforming into the new you. Also, because of his life transformation, he was just featured on the Dave Ramsey Show, reaching 12 million listeners, sharing his story of becoming debt-free for the first time in his entire adult life.
Calvin has been featured in Entrepreneur Magazine, The Huffington Post, Social Media Examiner, and was even named one of the top 30 entrepreneurs under the age of 30. Today, Calvin is the CEO of Cobbes Media, a social media management agency designed to make corporations, small businesses, and personal brands grow and stand out through the power of social media.
