83 | Cat Hoke | Turning the Incarcerated into CEOs

Cat Hoke is in the house! Such an awesome interview with one of the coolest women I know. Watch this episode as we go through Cat’s valuable lessons and experiences. 

In this episode, Cat and I talked about:

How Cat started wrestling at a young age
What you can learn working with incarcerated people
What is Hustle 2.0
Meet Cat:

As the only girl on the high school wrestling team and as a Brazilian jiu-jitsu fighter, Cat mastered the art of “breakfall”: how to prevent injury when you get taken down. Breakfall proved to be a transferable skill in her career as a three-time entrepreneur, disrupting the American prison industry. Cat works with gang leaders in the most notorious prisons, leading gang intervention programs. 

Hustle 2.0 reduces crime, violence, and recidivism by providing evidence-based rehabilitation programs that equip incarcerated people with the tools to transform their lives by changing their thoughts and behaviors. You can send Cat a message directly through her Email: Cat@hustle20.com
