Tough Love and Practical Truths to Make Every Day Count

The ability to reframe each day as an opportunity to start fresh is key. In Next Chance You, you’ll discover a roadmap to move forward from where you currently are. Using practical strategies and empowering examples from her own life and those she has counseled, Brittany will show you how to build positive daily habits, overcome obstacles, and develop a growth mindset. For everyone from college students to CEOs, Next Chance You will empower you to step awayfrom your excuses and fearlessly pursue your goals, whether that is finding a new job, leaving a relationship, or simply having more compassion for yourself and others.
“Brittany Wagner stood out on Last Chance U because she passionately fought for the student-athletes she counseled—not just to make grades to maintain eligibility, but to carve a path for a successful life after their playing days were over. She genuinely cares about them as people. Years later, they will tell you that they are better for having known her. In her book Next Chance You, she brings the same grit and determination to help you live your best life.”

“Next Chance You is a book chock-full of helpful tips and strategies to help you reach your goals! Brittany and I grew up together in small town Mississippi, and even back then she was learning ways to empower herself and achieve her goals. This book takes her expertise and makes it understandable for people of all ages!”—LANCE BASS, pop icon
