I came home after 26 years in prison with a dream but no clear plan to make it a reality. Working with Chosen For Success has been transformative for my life in the best of ways. I was introduced to the right people, resulting in employment opportunities and investments into my business ventures. I can honestly say that I likely wouldn't be as far along as I am today without having a mentor.
