Interrupting The Funnel Of Criminality

A special episode today with Roland Frasier and Andre Norman. Andre shares his incredible story of transformation and the framework he’s built to help other people. Andre travels the world as a public speaker, including engagements at the Whitehouse, Harvard Law School and London School of Business.

“I thought… If I can’t be a psychopath why be in jail? I want to be free. But I looked at all the groups in the jail, and they would all come back to jail. I saw that “Free” didn’t work. So I switched my goal to successful.” Andre Norman

From illiteracy to gang activity, Andre’s childhood prepared him for nothing less than a life of crime and violence. This behavior eventually led Andre to be sentenced to over 100 years in prison. As a natural-born leader, he quickly rose to the top of the prison gang system where he managed gang activities from within the confines of a maximum-security prison. During his two year stay in solitary confinement, Andre had an “epiphany” and he made the decision to turn his life around.

“If you’re talking you’re teaching, if you’re listening you’re learning”. Andre Norman
