Square Stories

At SquarePlanet, we believe insightful, impactful stories should be shared and celebrated. That’s why we created Square Stories, which takes a deep dive into what makes amazing individuals in business tick. The podcast very much follows the structure of its namesake — every episode covers four distinct sides of each guest. So come along for the ride as our founder and CEO Brian Burkhart gets the inside scoop about where our guests came from, where they are now, what they’ve learned along the way and what’s on the horizon.

For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed.

Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
