Chris Wilson’s Unforgettable Story on Life Elsewhere

Chris Wilson – The Master Plan – My Journey From Life In Prison To A Life Of Purpose

Chris Wilson grew up in a tough Washington, D.C., neighborhood, he was so afraid for his life, he wouldn’t leave the house without a gun. One night, defending himself, he killed a man. At eighteen, he was sentenced to life in prison with no hope of parole. What should have been the end of his story became the beginning. Deciding to make something of his life, Chris embarked on a journey of self-improvement–reading, working out, learning languages, even starting a business. He wrote his Master Plan: a list of all he expected to accomplish or acquire. He worked his plan every day for years, and in his mid-thirties, he did the impossible: he convinced a judge to reduce his sentence and became a free man. Today Chris is a successful social entrepreneur who employs returning citizens; a mentor; and a public speaker. He is the embodiment of second chances. In the next edition of Life Elsewhere, you’ll hear Chris Wilson’s unforgettable story.
