Roland Byrd Bio
Speaker, Author, & Founder of Life 180 University
Emotionally neglected as a child and physically and sexually abused, Transformational Speaker and Author Roland Byrd grew up with flawed beliefs about life and himself. At 35 he nearly destroyed his family and himself when these beliefs manifested in a storm of narcissistic and hyper-vigilant behavior. But in the midst of the chaos he had an awakening. He discovered he could choose his own, new path.
Since transforming himself from the inside, Roland has dedicated himself to becoming the man his family needed, the person he always wanted to be, and to helping others transform their lives from the inside.
Roland is also a Father, Husband, Network Engineer, Martial Artist, Skateboarder, Rock Climber, Fitness Nut, and Student of Life. He fell in love with reading at an early age and devoured all the science fiction and fantasy books he could get his hands on. His love for reading led to a passion for writing.
He draws on his own life experiences to write self-help and transformational books. He also writes science fiction and fantasy stories and novels.
A self-proclaimed Science-Fiction and Fantasy Junkie, Roland never imagined his first books would Inspire and Motivate others, or help them Heal and even Explore Spirituality. It’s a path he’s happy to walk though.
“Your world is only as big as you allow it to be.” – Roland Byrd
