Welcome to Tony Ventrella Productions. After a brief journey into the world of politics I’m happy to say we’re back doing the things we really love to and we’re happy to have you visit.

My mom used to have an old saying she shared with us every morning before school and in later years as adults. “Let your light shine,” she would say.  “Always bring out the best in people with your attitude and your smile.” That’s been my approach to life and I hope to share it with as many people as I can.

You can keep up with Tony through his "Sport Tonesblog and the Tony Ventrella podcast. Tony is available to speak at your next event! Head to the Tony Talks page to learn more about his motivational speaking.
