Episode 29: The Chronicles of Chad Porter

Motivational Speaker and Author, Severed Dreams


On this episode of the Shadows Podcast we welcome an accomplished motivational speaker and coach who’s shared his message with CEO’s, executives, MLB, NFL, and college athletes, corporate conferences, churches, schools, and small businesses. He’s also a best-selling author of “Severed Dreams”, Chad Porter.

On June 23, 1991, at the age of 15 years old, his life forever changed. Chad and his ski team performed a show at Tucker Lake near Benson, North Carolina. With a storm moving in, Chad and his friends were making their way out of the water when the boat was accidentally thrust, full-throttle into reverse. In a split-second decision, Chad instinctively dove under the boat and was sucked into the propeller. As a result, he lost his left leg and his right leg required major surgery.

Chad talks about his mindset after the accident and his incredibly inspiring road to recovery. He also provides plenty of humor while retelling the emotional rollercoaster of his life journey.
