“The crossroads are always defined simply by God saying, “Give me your hand.” This is the
wonderment of Tony Mandarich’s story… How can we find the words to describe amazing grace?
Grace is not earned or fought for; grace is accepted. …[My Dirty Little Secrets] is a testament that
faith in a higher power can bring us to salvation and light… Tony’s story is touched by magic and
brushes against the tragic. It’s a great human journey and a victory for the human spirit.”

"Tony's Triumph ... made for one of the most compelling and ultimately inspiring stories of my career."
"I wanted our sales team to really focus on the story about not buying into the myth of overnight success, working real hard, not taking short cuts. I was excited that the team really got the message; Tony really did a good job of taking his history, in life and the NFL, and putting it in a context that our whole team could understand on things to do to push them ahead. His instruction on how to set goals was one of the biggest takeaways that I got from it; from the time he was 11 years old till now he's been writing his goals down on paper and getting focused around what he needed to do in life to push ahead."
“I used Tony to address our sales force at our national sales meeting. He came in the day before and spent time with our team getting to know them and our company. His presentation left our team ready to knock down any barrier to the sale. We have him booked already for next year's meeting.”
“Tony is such an inspiration to me personally. When I asked him to address
my marketing team at our annual meeting, he left the entire group in total
awe and admiration. His ability to speak from his heart and tell of his
successes and failures is admirable. Tony held the attention of everyone
in the room throughout his entire presentation. As a direct result of
Tony's presentation, our top producers have embraced his goal setting
technics and often refer to him when they need inspiration and
encouragement. I highly recommend Tony to any group of any size.”
