10 Strategies to Prepare for Federal Prison
I deeply understand the shock and disbelief that comes with facing a federal prison sentence—I’ve been there. At first, I rejected advice and preparation, opting instead to blame others for my situation. But that lack of preparation only made things harder for myself and my family.
Learn from my mistakes.
Now that you’ve been sentenced, there’s clarity despite the hardships of waiting. There’s a defined timeline: a beginning and an end to your sentence. The real challenge is ensuring you come out with a solid plan, ready to rebuild and rebrand.
Our team at White Collar Advice is eager to help you overcome these hurdles. As you prepare for prison, document your plans and establish a reliable contact person for managing outside affairs. Understand the financial implications, prepare a reading list that aligns with your goals, and plan to oversee your business legally. Manage your personal belongings, address medical needs, set a realistic communication plan with loved ones, and create a quadrant guide for decision-making. Begin an exercise regimen that you can maintain while inside.
Remember, it’s about taking deliberate steps to document your journey, making it tangible for others, including judges and probation officers, to see. Our strategies are proven, not just ideas, and they’ll serve as your blueprint for navigating your time through prison and life after prison.
