With 25 years of experience, Aaron Shawn Harper has earned an excellent reputation as one of the nation’s leading corporate motivational speakers!

Aaron Shawn Harper is a seven-year former NFL offensive lineman who played with the Rams, the Oilers, the Colts, and NFL Europe and now owns and operates American Services and Protection, a multi-million-dollar security services firm headquartered in Columbus, Ohio. His journey from the grit and grime of the NFL locker room to the corporate culture of the boardroom proved that both worlds can be won by using the same principles and strategies!

How did a young man who grew up in a poverty-stricken, abusive, and broken home; who was plagued with learning disabilities, poor reading skills and a frustrating stutter; who was voted “most-likely-to-fail” in high school; who was below-average in football and in every other aspect of life, transform himself and his life? Look at what he accomplished despite the odds:

  • A graduate of Indiana University
  • A 7-yr NFL player (offensive lineman)
  • An international motivational speaker and consultant
  • An author of several life-transforming books
  • A business owner and CEO of a 7-figure company
