If I was able to do it in Jail you can do it Free

Updated: Aug 15, 2020

Have you ever dreamed of writing a book or a screenplay? Or have you wanted to write poetry? Did you start and then stop? Did you start and then get distracted?

I was there once, I had a lot of great ideas for books and I had a lot of great content. I was an entrepreneur, both legal and illegal. I had done a solo motorcycle trip through South America and I didn't speak Spanish, I was now a felon and had to as a result of running an escort service register as a sex offender, but I just couldn't write a book until I came to jail. Why do you think that is? I have a lot of theories but there is one reason that stands out above all the rest.

I chose to, I chose to start writing. I made writing a mandatory part of my day. I didn't have anything else to do, I could have played chess all day, or worked out a lot, or watched TV but instead I chose to write. Jail isn't your ideal writing environment, its incredibly loud, its violent and its dangerous. It's not a place you can easily get into a writing zone because you are constantly scanning your environment to make sure you will stay safe. However in the face of that 24/7 for 18 months I was able to write 10 books between 200 and 500 pages, 6 screenplays and over 700 poems. I also responded to over 900 letters and journaling, meditating and exercising regularly.

I made it a game and I pushed my self. It all started with a decision. If you have a dream and you don't know why you can't accomplish your dream, its because you are using excuses to stand between you and your dreams. I love helping people accomplish their dreams. If I was able to accomplish what I did in one of the most dangerous places in America you can accomplish anything.

The reason I have a picture of golf pencils is because I wrote all those books, letters, poems, and screenplays with Golf Pencils. Yes GOLF PENCILS! We didn't even get full length pencils, the police were afraid they would be used as weapons, which they would have been. If you are procrastinating on a goal lets talk, I would be more than happy to help you accomplish your dreams.
