Prickly problems demand well-equipped problem solvers. I’m Josh Martin, and my experience with cancer taught me a lot about tackling adversity. Inspired by that journey, I created the Overcoming Obstacles Handbook. Here, you’ll find a free collection of stories and advice, as well as information about obstacle-busting experts in your area to help you get through tough times — whether it’s a broken leg, broken heart, money troubles and more.
