Stories That Inspire: From Prisoner To Successful Life Coach
Stories That Inspire
Sometimes your greatest weakness can also be your greatest strength. Stories That Inspire host, Francesco Clark can attest to this when a swimming accident left him a quadriplegic. Instead of giving-up, he fought to survive. Now, an ambassador for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, President of Clark's Botanicals, and host of HooplaHa's Stories That Inspire, Clark is inspiring others to overcome their adversity.
In this new episode, Ivy Woolf Turk, a former executive in a real estate development business in NYC, found herself caught up in a situation with criminal consequences. She was abruptly taken from her family and sentenced to five years in federal prison. "I got to take a good look at who I was and more importantly who I wasn't."
Ivy was released from prison early, but the struggle wasn't over yet. "Re-entry was a lot worse than actually prison had been." Positivity kept her going and pushed her to become a Certified Professional Life Coach and founder of Project Liberation, an organization which aims to help imprisoned women readjust their lives and find sustainable freedom after incarceration.
