On today's episode Randy Kearse joins Felony Friday host John Odermatt. Randy is the founder and CEO of Reentry Strategies (RES) and the author of Changin' Your Game Plan: How I used incarceration as a stepping stone for SUCCESS. The concept for RES was created while he was serving a 15-year sentence in federal prison for a nonviolent drug offense.
While serving his sentence Randy had a growing desire to live and experience a better quality of life, which he knew could not be obtained through the lifestyle that led him to prison. During his incarceration Randy discovered that if he wanted to change, then he'd have to take the responsibility to rehabilitate himself on his own, because rehabilitative programming in the FBOP was either outdated, not created by people who shared his life experiences, or non-existent.
After years of internal soul searches, Randy was able to create, develop and implement a strategy that helped him reach the ultimate goal of change and successful transition from prison back to his family, community and society.
