“I launched a Company While Serving Time for Coke Smuggling” – Emily O’Brien
I’m so inspired by our conversation with Emily O’Brien. Emily is a keynote speaker, entrepreneur, consultant and convict. Emily is an entrepreneur, who started her current business from prison. She overcame far more than most entrepreneurs have to deal with, to start her business. She is the founder of Comeback Snacks where the website proudly proclaims, “We broke the law, but we fix good snacks!”
In this episode, Emily talks about why she went to prison, how her perspective on life changed during that time and how she started her business from prison. We talked about where she is with the business today, how it is scaling and what is next for her. Her story is incredibly inspiring. Check it out!
