From studying for the priesthood to being part of the pit crew for Evel Knievel, Larry Tracey has risen to the top the hard way. Larry spent thirteen years learning hard lessons on what he calls a road of personal destruction.

For the past three years, Chicken Soup for the Soul founder and The Success Principles author, Jack Canfield, has mentored Larry.

His vision, passion and pursuit of excellence in education are remarkable! I have great respect for Larry and am honored to call him my friend.
Larry was one of Toastmasters International top speakers in 2003 and competed in the semifinals of The World Championship of Public Speaking, in Ottawa, Canada, in June 2008. People find his style very genuine, passionate, and down-to-earth.
