Ty Pennington requires little introduction.  He’s our favorite carpenter from Trading Spaces and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and has written and just released his 3rd book called Life to the Extreme: How a Chaotic Kid Became America’s Favorite Carpenter.  For the first time, Ty’s opening up about his remarkable life story growing up with undiagnosed ADHD.  In his book, he takes you racing through his life with ADHD-infused diversions that will make you laugh out loud and maybe even cry.  Ty’s hard work, tough times, family, and life experiences have come together to make him an incredibly genuine person overflowing with human kindness. 

In this episode we talk about what it was like growing up with undiagnosed ADHD, how he scored his first acting gig on Trading Spaces, his life-changing experience on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and what motivates his heart to give so much to others.  Ty’s boundless energy and his sense of humor are infectious.  It was really fun to chat with him and hear some of his stories.  So, listen in, you’ll laugh and enjoy getting to know him on a more personal level.

Dr. C Vitamins are Pharmaceutical Grade and Medically Endorsed

30% Off Use Code: WEGETTOKNOW

Dr. C Vitamins are Pharmaceutical Grade & Medically Endorsed.  All vitamins are not created equal, in fact did you know there is no FDA oversight for supplements?  Unlike over the counter vitamins, Dr. C Vitamins are manufactured without commonly found synthetic ingredients, I mean honestly, who wants synthetics going into our bodies?  They are also non-GMO and gluten free. Their standards are so high the vitamins are actually manufactured just like a prescription drug would be in an FDA registered facility. Most vitamins do not subject themselves to this level of oversight. Their supplements are made with the purest ingredients and tested for potency and purity. 

When you purchase Dr. C Vitamins, your mind can rest at ease that you’ve chosen the best.   I personally take their D3/K2 combo to support bone health, memory, mood and immune support and their Collagen/Biotin that supports strong hair, nails and skin and on nights when I have a hard time unwinding I take their Melatonin/B6 combo which helps me gently fall asleep naturally.
