John’s Story

John grew up in Keyport, NJ. As a wayward youth, he dabbled in petty crimes. At the age of 23, John moved to Los Angeles, where he was seduced by the money and perceived glamour that accompany a life of crime. His crimes escalated. John’s criminal behaviors eventually caught up with him. He served one year in a state prison for forgery. Eight months later, he was arrested again and spent the next 10 years behind the bars of more than five federal prisons for conspiracy to distribute cocaine.

The Turning Point

John experienced the worst of humankind behind bars. But, he refused to let that destroy him. He vowed that he would turn his life around and encourage others living on the edge to do so as well. As soon as John was released in 2002, he began coaching others who were facing incarceration about how to make the best of their time in prison. In 2004, he formalized his coaching by founding Prison Coach Speaking. He is currently one of the most sought-after prison coaches in the world.

  1. saw your site on my stats and thought really impressive. I thought about going into the prison service but then felt that I was not a particularly tough/aggressive type. What’s your vie w on the types of inmates you’ve met? Thanks

    1. It is not about being tough or aggressive, it is about providing something that will be a benefit to someone needs. Inmates are people too. Often they get look down on. However, having being a inmate for the past 27 years I understand to why people feel this way. I would like to point out that everyone that was incarceration is not bad people we just want a chance to do right

    2. You have a little bit of everyone in prison. Most inmates can read correction officers very well. They know who wants to simply
      come to work and do their job and who wants to make prison life more miserable then it all ready is.

  2. I heard you on the radio tonight, WVON, talking with Art Chat Daddy Simms. My son committed suicide in Juky of this year. He ended his life on a Friday., that’s the day I learned that he was scheduled to meet with the Feds to be indited (for something he thought was settled) on Tuesday. Listening to you tonight, made it a little clearer to me about what he was going through and how scared he really was. He never told me or his siblings what was going on. I just had to let you know how much I appreciate you .

    Thank you so much for sharing.
