Travis T. Townsend Jr. is a man in his own lane. Since he graduated from high school he has been on a non stop train towards success, only coming up for air when he is actively changing his community. Growing up in a low income one parent house hold, Travis knew he wanted more. He beat the odds that were heavily stacked against his and he came out a winner. Travis is one of the few corporate powerhouses who's main goal is the impact he is making in the lives of others. Since completing his Law degree from University of Michigan Travis has worked for the most prestigious law firms in the country. Travis has moved up the corporate ladder faster than most of his peers due to his forward-thinking and ability to bring in new business and meet his firm's bottom line.

Travis is indeed at the forefront of change by launching his small business firm. Most businesses in the U.S. are small to mid size operations, and even large companies are starting to look at alternative legal service providers. Travis leverages his technology know how by using an intrafirm online communication system that will allow for real time document transfer from clients.

He recently spoke at Northern Kentucky University to the students about his book.
