Trent Shelton is a former NFL wide receiver and author of The Greatest You: Face Reality, Release Negativity, and Live Your Purpose. Considered as one of the most impactful speakers of this generation, he reaches over 60 million people weekly through hard hitting videos and unprecedented engagement.
His most recent release, Straight Up: Honest, Unfiltered, As-Real-As-I-Can-Put-It Advice for Life’s Biggest Challenges, shares the missteps he made growing up and the hard-won lessons he learned in short, easy-to read chapters and thought-provoking questions. Throughout, he provides honest advice to help you find a way through some of the most confusing topics in your own life, including: relationships, friendships, fear and depression, and your past trauma.
While Trent seemingly achieved his childhood dream, the former NFL player’s career ended prematurely, inevitably giving him the space and determination to reevaluate his values and life’s purpose.
As a way to hold himself accountable, Trent picked up his mobile phone and began recording two-minute video segments of his daily progress and posting them onto social media—with the hashtag #RehabTime. The engaging, hard-hitting, yet always uplifting messages resonated with millions around the globe. In the years that followed, Trent founded the RehabTime Organization, a Christian-based 501(c)3 nonprofit with a mission to serve a worldwide community by uplifting, empowering and demonstrating that change starts from within—through the development of faith, mindset, self-care, relationship building and leadership.
