Prison Consultant: Reading
People contact me when they anticipate that they may serve time. They’re looking for a prison consultant, someone who can provide guidance to help them through troubled times. Since I can only work with a few people on a one-on-one basis, I’ve created an abundance of content that is available at PrisonProfessor.com. The information I offer through that website helps defendants prepare for such issues as the Presentence Investigation Report (PSI), it helps them understand the Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP), Custody and Classification, the disciplinary code, and other matters. Through the Earning Freedom podcasts, each day I offer insight that also can help them through the prison journey.
Wade Danielson of The Entrepreneur’s Library
Today I introduce readers to Wade Danielson. He doesn’t have any affiliation with the prison system. Rather, he is a successful entrepreneur. As a young man, he grew tired of working in corporate America and decided to launch his own venture. I spoke with him as he celebrated the anniversary of being in business for five years. During that short time, he built a business that advanced from startup to annual revenues in excess of $5 million.
Strategies Wade used to build a successful business can prove helpful to anyone. He describes reading as being essential to his success. Wade always reads with a pencil in hand, ready to take notes that will help him memorialize essential information. Wade loved reading so much that he decided to start a podcast. He calls his podcast the Entrepreneur’s Library. Through his podcast, Wade interviews authors of business and self-help books. Those conversations with authors serve his audience, but the interviews also empower Wade to make better business decisions.
If you’re embarking upon a prison term, I urge you to listen to Wade’s inspiring story. By exposing himself to great business literature, Wade says that he learns new techniques. They bring fulfillment to his life and keep him on track to achieving a higher potential. The secret to overcoming any challenge, whether it’s building a great business or overcoming a personal struggle, is to live deliberately. Wade’s commitment to reading sharpens his focus and contributes to his success. If you embrace reading, you’ll find that you too can become more successful—even if you must take a detour that includes prison.
