Greg was interviewed in CJ Evolution Podcast, a show that put a twist on traditional criminal justice professions and provides tools to set yourself up for success in your career and for the future.
In this episode Greg shares his story how he owned his mistake after he defrauded a lot of people out of a lot of money, deceiving Peter to pay Paul, got arrested, did some time incarcerated, and now doing the right thing. Taking full responsibility for his actions.
“Greg, man, you're in the minority man. I really appreciate you coming on the show. And I what I mean by in the minorities, you're one of those rare individuals out there, who actually has taken responsibility for some of the actions that you've done throughout your life and again, that's an admirable trait man, because me being a cop or a long time, you hardly ever see that.”-Patrick Fitzgibbons, Host of CJ Evolution
