By Shaun McCambridge & The Podcast Boss

  This podcast features Nathan McCullum (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathan_McCullum) , former New Zealand International Cricketer and now Senior Recruiter at Stellar Recruitment (http://www.stellsrrecruitment.com/) . Born and bred in South Dunedin, New Zealand he came from a successful family framework which always supported each other. Nathan suffered from Perthes Disease (http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=a00070) at a young age and was in a wheelchair for 9 months. The doctors constantly told Nathan that he could never run or play sports, however this proved to be the catalyst for his passion in achieving great success in cricket. “How do you define success? Trying to get to the point where you’re performing at a higher level consistently. The things that are involved are drive and determination and a willingness to work hard. And allowing yourself to be successful and putting in the hard work… It is having a clear plan about how you want to do things, and work hard but understand in time it will pay off.” – Nathan McCullum This podcast explores Nathan’s sheer determination in overturning many obstacles to become one of New Zealand’s best and loved cricketers.
