I am so pleased to introduce a new initiative for Failsafe-ERA. It’s our pilot Entrepreneurship Program where we have an opportunity to highlight and assist returning citizens who have successfully transitioned from prison to the “business” world. We will help guide them and promote their business through targeted marketing and professional coaching.
Our first entrepreneur is Mr. Antoine Carey, who after serving 8 years in prison, is now the Owner/Licensed Barber of Faded & Company located at 2215 Jefferson Davis Highway, Suite 100, Fredericksburg, Virginia. Mr. Carey’s ultimate goal/dream is to open a barber school and he is well on his way. He already has one apprentice under him. Stay tuned for his new website that will be launched in the very near future.
