Chantel Soumis - Her battle with Multiple Sclerosis, finding happiness and advocating for the differently-abled community

With us today is Chantel Soumis who runs the national marketing agency, Stardust Creative.

In her mid-twenties, after giving birth to her baby boy, she started to lose her eyesight. In between jobs with no health insurance she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She soon lost her ability to walk and answer the simplest questions. But that didn’t stop her and today her mission is advocating for the differently-abled across the globe.

Chantel shares her mission of hope with us and how her experience has helped her find the true meaning of happiness.

About the Podcast

5 Questions with Frank Mengert
5 Questions with Frank Mengert is a podcast for those who want to do more in their life and career. Interviews with entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, intrapreneurs, business leaders and others who share their origin stories and lessons that shaped them.
5 Questions with Frank Mengert was born out of my quest to change the perception of what we see on social media and what real life is all about. Life is not all about models, bottles, boats, jets, fashion, and people showing off stacks of cash.

As someone who is working on his 4th company, I've ridden the rollercoaster of being an entrepreneur while also having the experience of having been an intrapreneur working for corporate.

This podcast will show you a look into the lives of people just like you. People who you can relate to who have been where you have been and who are now where you might aspire to be someday.

If someone else had done it before you, there is a way for you to achieve those goals. If you are feeling stuck or have hit that wall. Tune in to hear about how others have been successful overcoming challenges to conquer their desires.
