This week on Inspired Edinburgh we have Maxwell Muir.

Max is the Founder of Action 4 Dogs, an organisation whose mission is to help owners understand their pets better so they can achieve a natural relationship and one without confrontation. He’s a fully certified dog trainer and delivers coaching, seminars and workshops throughout the UK. He’s lectured internationally on dog behaviour and is a sponsor of Labrador Retreiver Rescue Scotland.

Through his experiences, Max is broadening his focus to motivational speaking and personal development coaching.

Max talks openly about his background, the struggles he’s overcome and the wisdom he’s acquired from years of reading and assimilating knowledge from the personal development and self help industry.

This interview is extremely inspiring and reaffirms that we should all have the confidence and self belief to go after our goals.
