Behind bars, Chris Wilson embarked on a remarkable journey of self-improvement; reading, working out, learning languages, even starting a business. At the age of twenty, he wrote a list of things he intended to accomplish or acquire; he called it his Master Plan.
He revised it regularly and followed it religiously. And, by his thirties, Chris Wilson did the impossible: he convinced a judge to reduce his sentence. He came out, six years later, determined to teach others the selflessness, work ethic, and professional skills that led to his second chance.
Wilson's memoir is "The Master Plan: My Journey from Life in Prison to a Life of Purpose."
