Arash Bayatmakou, Iranian-American author of the inspiring new book, Little Big Steps, is an entrepreneur, athlete, motivational speaker, and writer with an award-winning blog that details his ongoing recovery from a traumatic spinal cord injury suffered in 2012.

In 2015, Bayatmakou, co-founded No Limits Collaborative, a non-profit aimed at helping people with neurological conditions to access exercise, physical therapy and improved quality of life. He has also established a regularly occurring standup comedy show that raises funds for people with spinal cord injuries.

In these times of darkness, we are continuously in need of inspiration. Inspiration to be fierce, inspiration to be determined, inspiration to fight against the odds, inspiration to smile through it all. And we shall succeed. Like Arash. Please come to the book reading.
