Tony Gaskins Jr. is a husband and father first. In his spare time he’s a bestselling author, international speaker, and celebrity life coach.
After losing a football scholarship due to poor performance at the age of 22 he resorted to use his gift of writing to start writing books based on the wisdom he’d gained from life. At 25-years old he went on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the Tyra Banks Show, and the 700 Club telling different portions of his life story. He exposed his mistakes and turned them into lessons. Everything from being toxic in relationships to living the street life. Tony allowed his pain to birth his purpose. Then at 26 he was called on by the NBA, NFL, and NCAA to speak to athletes about life, love, and responsibility as young adults.
As a result of Tony’s message going viral online, he’s amassed 3 million supporters who enjoy his very real and raw delivery of life’s wisdom. Celebrities from all industries have reposted and shared Tony’s content. NBA All-Stars like Dwyane Wade and Damian Lillard have flown Tony in to speak at camps and community events. Countless others call Tony their Life Coach.
Tony served as the team life coach for college teams and a NBA team for several seasons before resigning to be home more with his family, and to work non-exclusively. Tony defines himself as a modern-day servant leader who teaches as he learns, but most importantly lives what he teaches.
