More about Calvin Wayman:
Calvin Wayman grew up in a large Fundamentalist Mormon family. He has 1 dad, 4 moms, and 44 siblings. (You read that right!) In 2015, he quit his day job to pursue his dream of working for himself. The quest for freedom led him to a much different journey than he expected--one where he began to question everything he ever knew. One day he realized that he had only one life. Why not make it a grand adventure? He ultimately left everything to live a life on his terms. Today, he is an entrepreneur, author, TEDx Speaker, YouTuber, and Adventurer--inspiring other trailblazers to escape "the script" and lead a life they love.
