John Rusnak has a unique business models, part of which is based on giving people who have made mistakes a second chance.  John knows about second chances. In 2001, he was convicted of bank fraud and served five years in prison.  While in prison, he realized his life had been off track way before the conviction.  When he got out, he got, well, a second chance, from friends.  Now he's doing that for as many other people as he can.  He runs Pilgrimage Development, an investment group that owns and manages a chain of Zips Dry Cleaners, known for it's $1.99/item cost.*  About half their employees – from register clerk to general manager – are recovering alcoholics, adicts, convicts, etc. This is a great example of how integrity works in the business place and that making a mistake – even a big one – does not mean failing.  

John also volunteers with Uncuffed.org, Opportunity Ministries, and Eden Communities Ventures Corp. Join us for the wonderful discussion about integrity and second chances working in the business world.
