About our Guest: 

In the first 28 years of Austin Hatch’s life, he survived two plane crashes that tragically claimed the lives of his entire immediate family. The second crash occurred just nine days after he accepted a scholarship to play basketball for Michigan. When he came out of a two-month-long coma after the second plane crash, Austin had to relearn how to walk, talk, and live a normal life. The road to recovery was tough, but thanks to an incredible team of doctors, nurses, therapists, his family and friends, and Coach Beilein’s incredible integrity, he was blessed to be a part of the team at Michigan for four years. Austin is now a full-time motivational speaker with a message about Grit & Thriving in the midst of adversity. We all face challenges every day. He believes part of his purpose in life is to help others find ways to thrive.
