My guest on this episode of the live show, which airs every weekday at 12 p.m. CT, is Robert C. Sherrill.

He spent five years in federal prison on drug conspiracy charges, and has since turned his life around as an entrepreneur, civic leader and inspiration to many.

Robert was a 2018 Most Admired CEO in the Nashville Business Journal and he is the author of “The Journey To Now” and the forthcoming book “Quid Pro Quo”.

We talk about the importance of improving re-entry programming, the opportunity for formerly incarcerated persons to become entrepreneurs and inspiring the next generation.

We also talk about maintaining a business in the COVID-19 era, his new book “Quid Pro Quo” and his work to change reform and re-entry for incarcerated persons.

Where to watch live:

    Thanks for the shout out for BEST, Marcus and Robert. It’s so important to help educate everyone as to the reality of being a returning citizen, all the challenges, all the frustrations… but the possibilities too! There IS something we can do to help prepare inmates to build a better future. Would love to hear more RC success stories to help inspire and motivate all who hear their remarkable stories like Robert’s.
