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.
