EP121 | I’m Not Wired for Jail with Ryan Skinner

Entrepreneur Perspectives

From Addiction and Prison to Success and Mentorship. A second chance story that you need to hear. In this episode, Eric Kasimov chats with Ryan Skinner, President of Summit Financial Partners, a Massachusetts based firm and the author of “Taking Stock“.  Ryan’s story includes a serious battle with addiction. His addiction and behavior landed Ryan in prison and lead him to almost take his own life. Now, with a second chance at life, he is succeeding with his family and his business. Ryan also regularly speaks to high school students and inmates enrolled in a drug program at the Middlesex House of Corrections.   Ryan Skinner is living proof that survival from a dark, downward spiral is possible. We hope you enjoy this episode titled, “I’m Not Wired for Jail with Ryan Skinner” on the Entrepreneur Perspectives Podcast.  Ryan’s team had scheduled this episode with us well in advance. As a result, we all wanted to stick with the recording time. During the episode, Ryan had to be in his car as he had to pick up his daughter early from school. The pandemic has changed so much and with that, we all do our best to roll with the punches. So we carried on with recording the conversation. The sound quality is not the best, so we apologize for that. The conversation is worth it and we are grateful Ryan found some time to join us to talk about his story and philosophies. —– KazCM is a content marketing company in Charlotte, NC.
