Student Athlete Motivational Speaker
Brad Butler II
Pain, Passion, Purpose is the story of Brad Butler II and his experiences growing up in Jersey City, New Jersey.
Brad's childhood consisted of drug dealing, drug use, poverty, and violence before he was moved to the suburbs of East Windsor, New Jersey. There, Brad continued to face adversity in different forms: being placed in special ed classes, suffering from lack of self-esteem, bullying. Still, despite his strife, Brad made a promise to himself and his family that their sacrifices would not go in vain; he would find a way to make them proud.
His lifelong Pain fueled his Passion, which ultimately led to him discovering his Purpose—becoming an author, motivational speaker, athlete, and all-around good citizen. Pain, Passion, Purpose is a story about heartbreak and triumph, failure and success, and how to learn from past mistakes and forge a new path.
