Building a New Life
Together with my wife, I decided to launch a new healthcare business. I raised capital through a series of real estate sales, restructurings, and an equity partnership. I used those resources to purchase two properties for $1 million in Riverside County. Then I worked with Carole to launch a residential care facility for the elderly. I hired a contractor and oversaw $100,000 worth of construction modifications to prepare the property for licensing.
My felony background led to licensing complications.
Simultaneously I worked to market and sell digital products that I created to teach and inspire. New clients included:
- California Department of Corrections
- New York City Department of Corrections
Carole obtained a license to operate our property as a care center for the elderly.
I co-founded Prison Professors, LLC with two partners, Justin Paperny and Shon Hopwood. I continue to remain active, creating content that will teach and inspire people how to prepare for success—even as they’re going into the prison system.
