In this episode of the Overcome Your Limits Radio Show Host Christopher Powell speaks with Travis Brown and his Anti-Bullying Campaign.
Travis Brown grew up in the small Midwestern town of Lafayette, Indiana; raised by a hard working single mother and factory-working father. A three-sport varsity athlete in high school, Travis went on to pursue his dream of playing college football following graduation.
After college, Travis spent the next decade in sales, executive management, consulting and business ownership. Expanding on many of his own life lessons, Travis turned his attention from the corporate world to focus on providing success and leadership tools for students across the country. It is through these leadership skills that he encourages students to “Mojo up” and take a stand against bullying.
As a top motivational speaker, Travis acquired the name “Mr. Mojo” for his high energy, intense content and captivating speaking style. He has delivered over 1,600 hours of motivational presentations to companies and youth nationwide.
On his anti-bullying tours, Travis has impacted the lives of nearly 700,000 students in the United States and abroad. He is also called on to bring motivation and inspiration to professional athletes and sports teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers, Chicago Bears and Cleveland Browns.
Currently, Travis is recognized as America’s Anti-bullying Coach for his tireless work to fight the social epidemic of bullying and change the lives of today’s youth. The Mojo Up Anti–Bullying Tour has created a unique way for Travis to connect to students with his life changing anti-bullying message: You Make A Difference!

Before becoming a multi award-winning author, Marala had a childhood filled with abuse. Her memories of abuse began as early as five years old. She and her family were living in a tenement apartment in upstate New York at that time. Marala vividly remembers her father coming home from work then have heated arguments with her mother that included pushing and shoving.
Marala said that her dad “had a special combination of hatred and abuse” for her.
