013: Poverty, Prison, and the Power of Consistency with Weldon Long
By NoCo FM
Think about spending 13 years in prison. Most of us can't even imagine 13 minutes there. On this episode of The Spark, I speak with Weldon Long, who went through an amazing journey from convicted felon, to total transformation and amazing success in his life. Five years after leaving prison, Weldon became a highly successful businessman, had a wonderful marriage, and most importantly, obtained custody of his son. Today, he has a multi-million-dollar business, national speaking engagements, and has published several books, including the New York Times bestseller, The Power of Consistency. Changing his thoughts, he changed his feelings, his actions, and his relationship with himself and the world. Join us as we journey through how one man completely transformed his life and how he can help us transform our own. A powerful story that will lend you strength as you travel your own life's path. *** I wanted to take a moment to let you know that this will be the last episode of The Spark to air on KRFC.
