3-Success after Prison

Self-Directed Responses:
When you start building a network of mentors/avatars, especially when rebuilding your life after prison, you start the process that gets you back to society, back to self-respect, back to self-sustainment because you are building your life just like building a house, one brick (mentor/network) at a time. As you layer those bricks you do things that contribute to society like getting a job and paying taxes and volunteering or raising a family. All these things lead to your network and mentors influencing people to help and mentor you.
