As time goes by and you "recruit" more people, they could start a repurpose of a bus for a mobile mechanic shop, or roofing, pet grooming, food truck....whatever they want to!
Give then a 2nd chance to a better life.
I like it.

Awesome ideas! It's crazy the tunnel vision I get sometimes so that when I'm deterred at one thing, I have a hard time flipping it around. You know what I thought would be cool (never thought of a bus for it) - mobile tattooing. There are quite a few guys making a pretty penny doing tattoos in prison, using a walkman and a guitar string. CAN YOU IMAGINE?!? With pro equipment they could go to fairs, concerts, Comic Con, the beach etc. Can also make it a mobile art/craft exhibit. A lot of the guys are very talented. It's a shame. And SMART. I'm not saying all, but I truly believe that the people you didn't believe could possibly be capable of much are capable of a lot of things given the right opportunities and tools.

You're hilarious! I'm surprised you didn't black and white stripe it lol.
This is my favorite business: CONBODY
. Check out his press page! Love the prison gimmick. The story is he lost like 60 or 70 lbs in the box (solitary confinement) and helped a bunch of guys lose when he got put back in pop. While working out in the park people would ask him questions. He figured he could make money at it. He was a drug dealer making over $2M/year. Dude has business skills.
He went through Defy Ventures which I mentioned earlier in this thread. The beauty of both Prison Entrepreneurship Program and Defy is that they have a huge network of professional people involved. That's why I wanted to do Uber - so I'd have time to cultivate these types of relationships during the day, but I'm starting to reconsider Uber so I need to come up with a different plan where I could work from home.
Still sorting it all out because over the last 3 weeks my plans have been forced to changed immensely.
