Just published! Read Untethered, the story of JT Mestdagh, a young man born with a death sentence and severe dyslexia and who is now an entrepreneur and adventurer on a mission to empower people to UNTETHER from limiting beliefs and to soar to their highest dreams. As a child, JT’s parents relentlessly hunted for the right reading program to help Mestdagh learn to read. Nothing worked until in fifth grade when an encounter with Steve Tattum, LearnUp’s Reading Director, and his unique reading program changed Mestdagh’s life forever.
