I was taken to a small classroom where I was scheduled to speak to a group of men about business and entrepreneurship.

When I began my talk, I noticed that the men were fixated on every word. There weren’t any distractions. There are no cell phones in prison.

When I was finished speaking, hands went into the air. My thirty-minute talk turned into a two-hour discussion. These men were prepared, motivated and committed to learning how they could create a better life after they served their time.

This was not the profile of social misfits that I had expected to encounter.
