This is the story of an entrepreneur, from humble beginning as a deck hand (laborer) on a fishing boat to ship's Captain, living his dream of being at sea after landing this dream job at the young age of 19. But that was not to be his destiny. By chance, a newspaper advertisement for a car salesman was about to change his life forever. He worked his way from car salesman on the showroom floor to ultimately building and owning his own business empire. He made impossible deals, built a business, and eventually became one of the largest Chevrolet dealers in the United States, just to see it all crumble in 2008 and land him in prison. He was sent to prison for money he did not steal, nonetheless having made bad business decisions that lead to his losses and incarceration. This is the untold inside story of state prison life from a white collar inmate who had never been in trouble with the law. This story includes fishing-boat tales, car salesman stories, accounts of the growth and collapse of a business empire, jail house tells, and more: the enlightenment that followed and, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the rise and resurrection of an entrepreneur and his re-entrance into the business world. This book is his mission to share this journey with others. Follow this philanthropist, community leader, and businessman on his vocation and journey of sharing, listening, and educating, seeing and speaking to those that wish to grow, overcome, succeed, and be all they were intended to be, the entrepreneurship you thought was only a dream. All the while teaching the lessons learned, mistakes made, and how to reemerge a better yet stronger person with faith, family, and friends. This book will give you a new insight into those deserving of a second chance. We all make mistakes, have losses in life, even tragedy happen to ourselves and loved ones; you can and must learn, while understanding those mistakes or tragedies were stepping stones in this journey we call life.
