I had to go to prison to find my freedom 

“We can be in prison without physically being in prison. We can be chained down by our addiction and destructive habits, we can be restricted by our fears and insecurities. We can be trapped by our limiting beliefs and negative mindsets.”

From Prison To Prosperity

Erik’s journey is something incredibly special and signifies in such a powerful way the process and possibility of change.

Pete Vargas - CEO of Advance Your Reach

“Hiring speakers can be a risky thing. You want to make sure you hire someone that will serve your community and knock it out of the park. Erik Salzenstein is your guy. His story inspired our entire audience. We had over 60+ meeting planners vote him the winner of our speak off. These 60 are folks who have their own events just like you. I highly recommend Erik.”

Daniel - Student

"Erik was awesome! A lot of the things he said resonated with me so much it was kinda creepy."

Kev Cossin - Educator
