There was a need in society for my speaking business and the books that I wrote. I conduct motivational speaking on the books that I wrote. I wrote the prison privatization book because of a need for someone in private industry to speak out at critics about Core Civic Company. I did my dissertation on prison privatization. I composed research from 499 private citizens and how they had to answer 11 critical question asked in interviews, I maintained that the social impact of having privatized prisons should engender a better quality of life for the inmate and the public.
