Troy Payne, inspirational speaker, musician, and international bestselling author lives in British Columbia, Canada. He wrote this exclusive article for me. Thank you Troy!
Troy was an adopted child who experienced divorce and a life surrounded by alcoholism and drug abuse. Physical and mental abuse from members of his family led him into foster care placements during his teen years.
Troy certainly knows a thing or two about survival. He attributes his personal growth to the support of great teachers and councilors and enriching school programs that opened his eyes to his true potential.
After high school and post secondary, Troy became a Child & Youth Care Worker. The first few years of his career he worked in schools and in a residential treatment center. He started his company, Wellness Realization to Encourage, Engage and Empower individuals to be proactive rather than reactive. Thank you Troy for inspiring and encouraging our youth!
