Changing Lives One Photo At A Time - Marcus Bullock

I was late getting to the keynote address by a guy named Marcus Bullock. He was kicking off EntreFest a startup and entrepreneurial conference in Cedar Rapids Iowa. I almost didn't go because I was working on my presentation and, frankly, what kind of business is something called Flickshop? I'm grateful I went and sat in the front row.  His story, from going to prison at age 15 to creating a company and an educational component that helps prison inmates keep connected and then gives them skills to be used on the outside, was one of the most important speeches I've heard. There is so much to unpack here...so, let's get at it and meet Marcus Bullock.
