In 1988 John Cappas was on top of the world. A young man in his early 20's who quickly rose to become one of the youngest drug king pins to grace the streets of the Chicago land area. John Cappas thumbed his nose at authorities, but while he was living it up making millions, spending $300,000 on cars, purchasing property, and lavishing jewelry and furs on his girlfriend, the federal government was building its case against him—a case they would win—a case that would get him a 45 year federal prison sentence.
It seems so long ago, but prison would not break John Cappas, the never-say-die fighter who knew only one way of life—fight for what you want — continued his fight in the courts and finally returned to the streets after 15 years of hell in the Federal Penitentiary at Lewisburg Pennsylvania.
Through his own determination and dedication he taught himself to overcome his challenges. He has now driven his life 180 degrees in the opposite direction and strives to help others avoid the mistakes he could not escape. John Cappas shares his life experiences with teenagers before they make the tough transition from school into the real world. He shares his challenges with prisoners before they are released for re-entry into society. He also shares his motivational techniques and philosophies with various businesses and entrepreneurs to help become the best at their profession. John also helps employees use their marketable skills to increase sales and maximize profits, and apply their knowledge in real world business applications.
