Our guests today guest is Josh Nowack Co-Founder of Breaking Free Industries. Josh experienced first-hand the challenge in finding employment post-incarceration. This lead to the inspiration to start Breaking Free Industries which is a tee-shirt printing shop located in Santa Ana, CA. The mission is to provide second chance employment opportunities to formerly incarcerated individuals while providing quality apparel in a cost-efficient fashion. Josh also is an instructor and board member for Brian Hamilton Foundation Inmates to Entrepreneurs.
