WARNING: you may find your beliefs challenged after hearing from today's guest, the incredible Chris Wilson. Raised in the warzone that was Baltimore in the 80s, he eventually found himself in a life threatening situation as a teenager. He responded with a gun and that fateful day signified the beginning of the end as he was subsequently sentenced to life in prison.
But that didn't stop Chris - rather than giving up, he doubled down on turning his life around and relentlessly pursued what he called his Master Plan. I'm not going to give the entire story away, but clearly Chris is NOT still in prison and he's using his story as a force for good.
Today he's a talented artist, speaker, business owner & social entrepreneur. He's taken his Master Plan and turned it into a movement that is helping thousands of people get their lives on track.
Before you make sweeping opinions on criminal justice reform & the prison system, you need to listen to Chris' story and put yourself in his shoes. How would you have responded growing up in the environment he did? How would you have responded that fateful night when his life was threatened? Check out his book The Master Plan and find out for yourself: https://www.amazon.com/Master-Plan-Journey-Prison-Purpose/dp/0735215588
