In the latest episode of Leaders Create Leaders, Entrepreneur Network partner Gerard Adams sits down with Trent Shelton, a former professional football player who has transitioned to become a successful vlogger and viral-famous motivational speaker. The influencer's content focuses on promoting positive mental health habits. 

Shelton explains how his video channel, Rehab Time, was solely for himself when he started. Over time, the blossoming of the channel proved Shelton's message spoke to people, and by now, he knows a thing or two about attracting a large audience.

Shelton stresses the need to come from a real place and treat yourself well in order to grow and sustain a fanbase. Moreover, Shelton emphasizes the need to begin every day with a win to establish a positive mental space to meet goals.
