Bill has a very compelling story to share. I’ve heard him share his story on two different occasions. Bill’s presentation is flawless. He speaks from the heart and doesn’t use any notes. His presentation should be especially encouraging for young people who are struggling to overcome physical disabilities. Bill demonstrates how a person can adjust to difficult circumstances and still succeed in life. So much depends upon the person’s attitude…

“This is a well-written and heartwarming story of a man who I have known for twenty-three years. Bill has never let his ‘disability’ become an excuse. His story is a tribute to his parents and to their neighbors who encouraged him. I hope it will encourage all of us to see individuals in our world who are different as fully human and fully capable. “

“Bill Schultz spoke to our students, grades K-5, at an Elementary Chapel.  With an age range like this, it can sometimes be hard for a speaker to engage everyone.  Mr. Schultz had the students spell-bound.  He was engaging, dynamic, and entertaining while sharing valuable life lessons that the kids could understand.  He made his presentation appropriate for his audience – no canned speech that might be fine for adults, but…

Short-Handed is a small book in size, but large in message and inspiration. His story is triumphant, powerful and moving. I have known Bill personally as my uncle’s brother.
