Journal of today’s activities:
While running this morning I had a long conversation with my partner, Justin Paperny. Running is the best time for me to talk on the phone. Whenever I’m at my desk, I focus on the computer screen or on writing. While writing or researching, I minimize phone time because conversations interfere with my concentration. This morning, I worked with Justin to draft a contract that our staffing company could use with employers.
Our staffing division seeks to provide a bridge between the formerly incarcerated and the workforce. We’ve created a handbook that teaches our Straight-A Guide strategy to the formerly incarcerated. We wrote the handbook in a manner that allows participants to study at their own pace. Participants respond to questions as they deem appropriate. To the extent that participants work through the program, we have an idea about the prospects for their success. It’s our hope that we can open more employment opportunities for the formerly incarcerated.
Following my morning run, I returned to Orange County to complete more work with the corporate development team that I’ve begun introducing to our Straight-A Guide.
