On this edition of In Black America, producer/host John L. Hanson Jr. speaks with Trent Shelton, a former NFL wide receiver.
Shelton enjoyed tremendous success as a professional football player for the Indianapolis Colts, Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks before realizing his true calling as a motivational speaker and author.
By utilizing his football platform, Shelton has been able to effectively help people condition both their minds and bodies, and to strengthen their personal relationships with Christ by overcoming the obstacles that life may bring. His online testimonials and inspiring twitter messages have evolved into a viral phenomenon garnering over 118,000 Twitter, 70,000 Instagram, and 575,000 Facebook followers.
To date he has penned four e-books: "Know Your Circle," "You’re Perfect," "See My Heart Not My Past," and "Breaking Your Own Heart." In addition to writing, he currently serves as an in-demand guest speaker throughout schools, colleges, churches, celebrity events and much more.
He is currently top ranked as one of the most inspiring people on the web along with the likes of Oprah and Bill Gates by Under30CEO.com.
Shelton’s non-profit organization RehabTime (Renew Every Heart and Body) is the bridge between the secular and the sacred. By erasing the dividing line that separates the two, we are able to bring people from all walks of life together for a common cause which is to uplift positivity, educate, and empower people in their everyday life.
RehabTime’s mission is to serve as a worldwide community that instinctively promotes change for the better by uplifting, empowering and demonstrating that “change starts with you,” from the inside out, through the development of faith, self, fitness, relationships and leadership.
