207. Erik Salzenstein – From Prison To Prosperity

Today we have former convict, online business coach, TEDx & keynote speaker, Erik Salzenstein. Erik’s TED talk, “From Prison to Purpose” garnered his massive success. Erik’s message of bettering himself and personal development didn’t start on the outside, however. Join Lance as we hear the growth of a man who realized his passion for speaking while serving four years in prison. Erik shares his perspective on COVID-19, opens up about his time in prison, and reveals the details of what prison life felt like. Stay tuned until the end to hear Erik share how “Awaken The Giant Within” by Tony Robbins and “The Four Hour Work Week” by Timothy Ferriss helped him awaken his own potential for helping others overcome their adversity.


Erik answers, “There is power in change and adversity is your gift of growth”
