Jeff Shafer, CEO of CommonGood Capital, is joined by Coss Marte, Founder and CEO of CONBODY – to talk about his younger years selling drugs on the streets of New York which led to a series of prison sentences, being told by a prison-doctor at age 24 that he was so overweight he was already a heart attack risk, using that moment to transform his body and get in shape while behind bars, and then dedicate his life to transforming other people’s body (and minds) for the better.
