Let me introduce you to my friend, DeAnna Rogers. At one point, she was a single mom diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. Not only did she meet and marry the man of her dreams and win out over cancer, but she helped create this "little thing" called Traffic & Conversion Summit with the guys over at Digital Marketer.  Here's a bit more about her story in her own words: In the past twenty years, I have owned several of my own successful businesses. When diagnosed with cancer, I took a long look at what I wanted to do and realized that my job was not done yet. I became stronger and more determined to make an impact in the community. I also learned to create relationships in order to build a back-end funnel for my business and have truly appreciated the people that I've met along the way. I am not afraid of adversity and truly believe that challenges are just “stepping stones” toward success. This journey led me into the Events and Marketing world and I am thrilled to be working with such great people within Digital Marketer. Working with Roland Frasier and Ryan Deiss is a daily blessing. I began with them over ten years ago as their Events Director and the journey with them and the team at Digital Marketer has been amazing. I have loved managing events for years and my passion for events is now something that I get to do on a daily basis. What started with my first event with 54 people is now working with events that host over 7000+ people. I grow daily along with my team and I am proud of the people that I work beside each day. The event career led me to have the opportunity to become a partner with Roland Frasier and Ryan Deiss on several different companies, including EPIC, Evolve Events, Rise Nation Mastermind, and several others. I am proud to lead the EPIC company, and serve as the GM and guide that program/community of amazing entrepreneurs and investors. I can actually say that my business experience has been crafted over the past twenty years with just “trial and error.” I have no fear of failing, but rather fear of not being able to try at all. I am stronger today because of the people that I work with and the entrepreneurs that I have chosen to work beside. It is with great honor that I am able to share my “success stones” with others in hopes that you too will not give up and you can create your very own success. You control your destiny. Your success is up to YOU!   You can find DeAnna on LinkedIn.

Today on the podcast, I answer an “Ask Me Anything” question from Perry: Even though I'm in my 40's, I have a number of health challenges that I've had my whole life. Nothing like what Sean had, but I always wanted to ask him how he coped. There must have been times he just couldn't do things, and it impacted him and everyone around him. So it would be really helpful if Mindie was able to share how his physical challenges affected both their initial dating, as well as the long-term success of the relationship. Actual daily life couldn't be a constant "dance party" so how did it actually work?  How did they deal with the limitations?
