Summary

Navigating life can be tough sometimes, especially as a teen. Best-selling author and former NFL player Trent Shelton has been through some hard times as well, and he shares his own story of finding himself and a better path forward, providing straight-up truths and uplifting advice to help you through the issues you face at school, at home, or within yourself. 

Who do you have in your life who’s not afraid to tell you the honest-to-God truth? Who do you have who’s a real source of wisdom when life gets real?

With his trademark combination of raw honesty and practical next steps, motivational speaker Trent Shelton shares the missteps he made growing up and the hard-won lessons he learned in short, easy-to-listen-to 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
  • Your past trauma 

And while you might not make it out of the storms of life completely unscathed, the wisdom and lessons in this audiobook can help you can make it out stronger and discover the best you waiting inside.

Straight Up is perfect for:

  • Teens and young adults 13 and up

OUTSTANDING! LIFE’S HANDBOOK!

This book, Straight Up, by Trent Shelton and David Tieche is truly outstanding! It far exceeded my expectations, which I’m surprised about because I love Trent Shelton. I’ve followed him for years and take tine to listen to all his podcasts, “Live” videos in social media, etc. I knew I’d enjoy this book, but really had no idea on the impact I’d make.
This book provides a real look at numerous situations we deal with throughout our lives. But gives valuable advice on how to deal with and/or prepare for them.
You won’t be disappointed with this book, Straight Up!

Great Listen & Truly Motivational

Another great listen by Trent Shelton. Trent is an amazing speaker (and writer) and has a way of truly speaking to your soul. I had the privilege of hearing him speak at RISE Ft Myers w/ Rachel Hollis and he became an instant favorite of mine at that time. Trent provides real life advice, for the tough things we all encounter in every day life. He doesn't sugar coat it, and he has a powerful way of delivering his message.

Amazing read!!!

Trent is just the BEST! I loved his first book so much, it literally changed my life. This one was just as amazing! He is so relatable and raw, like a good friend! His voice, and the way he reads is so inspiring and motivating! I never get bored listening to him speak! A must read for everyone-- all ages and all walks of life. He will help change your perspective. Sometimes we just need a friend to remind us of our potential and to change our outlook. Trent is that friend!
