In this episode of our special winter series BURN THE SHIPS, we talk to Donte Wilburn about how he wound up selling drugs in his teens and 20s – recognizing the danger but embracing the lifestyle that dealing allowed him to live. But that lifestyle, he explains, came perilously close to ending his life.
It was only after he leaned into his faith and avoided prison thanks to a judge who believed in him that he found a new ship to board – starting out washing cars for minimum wage at an auto-detailing business he now owns. His success has fueled his desire to pass long the lessons about truly succeeding he learned the hard way to the young people who work for him – so they don’t have to learn them the hard way.
It's wisdom he passes along in his soon-to-be released book, Born Hungry: You Were Made for More.
