Travis Richey is an entrepreneur and motivational speaker. Having invested in over 25 companies over the last 15 years; he knows a thing or two about success, and more importantly, about failure on the road to success. At the age of 25, Travis managed a hedge fund with millions of dollars under management. Due to regulatory oversight in the State of Arizona, he was charged with transactions of an unregistered securities dealer and sentenced to 2 years in the Arizona Deptartment of Corrections.
These 17,520 hours became the framework of Travis’ new mission in life; he founded AccomplishED Ventures to provide incarcerated and returned citizens the proper resources for a second chance at a successful life. Over the past 8 years, his curriculum and programs have been used by hundreds of thousands of inmates and over 125 jails and prisons. Currently, his content is seen on over 400,000 prison tablets daily in the US. AccomplishED Ventures has become the largest prison curriculum and content provider in America. Sometimes referred to as the Tony Robbins of the prison world, Travis speaks the language of failure and perseverance to inmates nationwide bringing them hope and purpose.
Travis believes that the worst prisons in America are not the ones made up of concrete and steel but perhaps the limitation of the self-doubt which keeps us locked inside of a mindset and even worse a life that does not serve our potential or purpose. Travis co-founded Convicted Mindset; a coaching program focused on unlocking the potential of people around the world.
Travis co-hosts the Convicted Life podcast; the first broadcast inside prison, featuring individuals who went from cell blocks to c-suites across America building successful companies in spite of their adversity.
