About This Episode
My guest this week grew up in South Africa with undiagnosed autism which, as you might imaging, made for a difficult start in life. It certainly did him no favours in terms of his confidence, his ability to socialise, and a whole lot more.
Until he discovered magic.
Join us as we learn how Angus used his new-found love of magic to enable him to develop his confidence and his social skills, and how he learned to live with his autism.
We also take a look at Angus’s business, how he built and grew it, and where he wants to take it in the future, as well as the people he is helping along the way.
As always, you can listen to this episode via the audio above, or if you prefer to watch us having a chat then there’s the video version of it below.

Award-winning coach, international speaker, multi-time best-selling author, hypnotist, occasional magician, and writer of this post, Keith spent his first 40 years suffering from several phobias including being terrified of speaking with strangers. After one incident too many, he started studying and training in NLP & hypnosis to conquer his own issues, found he was rather good at it, and changed careers (aided by redundancy at just the right moment after 20 years in IT). He helps people transform their deepest fears into their greatest strengths, and having helped over 5,000 people across 5 continents, he is the UK’s #1 Fear Strategist.
