    Dave Koch Joins Human Rights for Prisoners March: From Prison to the Ivory Tower

    in Politics Progressive

    Dave Koch experienced unprecedented success after parole. He joins "Human Rights for Prisoners March" to talk about how to make a successful re-entry or "slay the dragon" in whatever listeners face. Koch did it! Call-in at 818-572-2947. Visit Koch's website, "Self Reinvention" http://www.selfreinvention.org

    Koch served sentences of 18 mo. to 5 yrs. in federal and state prisons, then went on to become a pilot. Later he was co-founder, president, CEO and chairman of the 68th fastest growing company in America - Fiber Network Solutions. Koch's company helped build the infrastructure of the Internet in North America. Koch authored "Slaying the Dragon," a book to inspire us all to overcome obstacles in our lives. Even released prisoners like himself can make it to the ivory tower.

    "Don't tell me that you can't have a great life after serving time in prison! It requires work, and just don't quit!" ~Dave Koch

    "The Urban News" published an article in 2009 about Koch, ex-con who became highly successful, called "Ex-Con Turned CEO Declares: 'Accept Self-Blame and Re-Invent Yourself!'"
