This week on the Insights with Dick Goldberg podcast I shared how my prison and the post-prison experience changed me as well as my first-hand view about what is counter-productive in our criminal court system. Dick asked a lot of very different questions than the usual host and I greatly appreciated his direct honesty and genuine interest in what happened to me. Listen on and share and thank you for supporting my podcast.
“My biggest lesson is being bluntly and directly honest at all times. It doesn’t matter what the subject is, and it doesn’t matter if you feel like you might offend somebody. It’s been a very eye-opening experience because if you’re that honest all the time, you don’t have anything to worry about.”
– Gregory Kotsaftis
“You have to have an open minded to try to hear somebody else’s opinion. But at the same time, be able to voice your room. If you’re in trouble or things are happening, or if you disagree with somebody, it’s important to say it in an empathetic way because it just makes you stronger.”
