Bob Pelshaw was a very successful real estate developer in the midwest before spending 10 months in prison on a felony charge for misspending federal loans.

While in prison, he was struck by the untapped entrepreneurial potential amongst the community of incarcerated people he served time with.

Through working with people one on one in prison, he came to believe very strongly that the entrepreneurial mindset and business acumen he saw in his incarcerated brethren was just waiting to be activated.

He wrote a book, “Illegal to Legal: Business Success for the Formerly Incarcerated” to help people see the path of entrepreneurship and is now dedicated to helping formerly incarcerated people learn and achieve success in both business and life.
