James Monahan: Out of Bounds Nation / Second Chances
Providing second chances to individuals with a criminal past through entrepreneurial, educational, and vocational programs.
In this episode, Dean Newlund and James Monahan discuss:
- Forging a small business incubator.
- Creation and branding of the prison theme.
- Giving back to nonprofits that help the incarcerated or the families of the incarcerated.
- The legal barriers that felons face after prison.
- Helping people to push past the fear of interacting with people that have been in prison by making use of stats and success stories.
- Working to build revenue and help the community.
- Most felons just made a mistake or a wrong choice and need that second chance to prove themselves.
- “Change the way you look at things, and things will change.”
“We don’t want to create jobs; we want to create careers.” — James Monahan
