Globally renowned motivational speaker and transformational coach Baz Porter was not always the fearless, energetic, and successful person he is today. Returning from the British Army in 2004, Baz struggled with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), and this had a ripple effect on every aspect of his life.
In overcoming and pushing past his trauma, Baz learned how to overcome the adversity in his life and knew that his true calling was to spread his teachings to as many people as possible. Since everyone struggles with some kind of adversity in their life, anyone is able to engage with Baz’s teachings and come out better for it.
Baz is now keen to tell his story and spread his teachings to an even broader audience through his new book “Using Trauma to Thrive”. A mix between memoir and self-help guide, Baz uses the book to tell his personal story and connect it to actionable, relatable advice that the reader can apply to their own life.
Baz decided to write the book because he wanted to leave a message that lasted a long time and was accessible to a wider audience. Having seen the impact that great books can have, Baz was eager to put his lessons into words and tell his story for those who want to read about it.
Through the book, Baz wants to teach people to realize how resilient they truly are, and that anything is possible if they choose to look up at the light at the end of the tunnel. He wants people to look up from the ground and find the courage to be proud of themselves, regardless of their past experiences.
Baz hopes that his book will be able to have a profound impact on those who read it and change their lives for the better, as well as help inspire healing across humanity.
