29 Valuable Facts You Should Know About Federal Prison
“I made a mistake, but I am so glad I did,” a student said to me after I completed my 8th lecture in one week at USC.
“What was the mistake?” I asked.

You have totally changed my view of the business world and how I view people who have committed white collar crimes. If I am not diligent, I know I could easily make a bad decision or two as they did.”

“Awesome!” he said.

- What is the prison hustle?
