Overview

Change: If I Can, You Can: Changing for the Better in You by Travis Angry

“A life without discipline is a life without success.” —Travis Angry
Travis Angry’s gift is showing others how to resolve fear and thrive. He knows that if he can do it, so can anyone.
CHANGE: If I Can You Can is the detailed story of a man destined for as much turmoil as life can provide. Travis created his identity through childhood rebellion, dropping out of school, being in the military, fighting cancer, marrying, divorcing, raising children as a single father, obtaining a college degree, writing a memoir, and working as a professional speaker.
Today, through his speaking and nationwide project, this story is at the heart of his mission: helping youth to overcome adversity and use hope as a tool for positive change. The Change: If I Can You Can project and book also address how parents and educators can serve as an important catalyst for creating a life of success.
As Travis states, “When our youth succeed at home, the community succeeds. When the community succeeds, then the city succeeds. When the city succeeds, the nation succeeds.”
