I’m working on two fronts now, and the busy schedule means that I’m writing weekly updates rather than daily updates to my journal. On one front, I have a commitment to the Michael G. Santos Foundation, which works toward three objectives:
- To provide programs that teach people in at-risk populations how to transition into law-abiding, contributing lives.
- To help the formerly incarcerated transition into the labor market.
- To spread awareness on reasons why we as a society should work together to improve outcomes of our nation’s criminal justice system.
The other front is more like my day job, where I’m working with an amazing company that is in rapid growth stage. As director of business development, I’m striving to recruit and train a sales force that will adhere to the principles I teach in the Straight-A Guide. All of this work together means that I work long hours seven days each week, but I’m enjoying every minute.
