Mancal Denton went to prison. Not jail... prison.
He was sent to the Texas State Penitentiary and served a six-month prison term there.
He joins James today to talk about the mistakes he made and why he did it.
He was convicted of stealing about 17,000 pages of documents from the Mazal Holocaust Library in Hill Country Village and then selling them online. While exact numbers aren't available, it's believed about 7,000 pages were never recovered.
He felt he probably won't have to go to jail but in June 2014 the judge sentenced him to six months in prison.
During the three and a half years between being arrested and being sentenced, he finished school and started a business.
He credits James' blog as one of things that helped him get through this ordeal.
How he survived prison is a fascinating story.
P.S. Hi, James here...
My new book is finally out! It has taken me a year to put together all the skills I think are needed to create abundance in this new economy. I hope you write me with feedback and questions.
Here's what the initial reviews of this book have said:
"James Altucher did it again. I just finished and have to say it was a great read. Great insight into the future of wealth."
"I couldn't wait for this book to come out. It was well worth the wait! Very short and jam-packed with good ideas and advice for the budding entrepreneur. A must read!"
"This is the road map out. Very specific ideas to get you unstuck and to thrive in the 21st century. If you follow the ideas in this book you will receive 1000% or more in return on your investment."
I'm really grateful for the response I've received so quickly. I feel we are quickly building a strong community of people who are deciding to "choose themselves."
If you want to get the book exclusively in hardcover, plus several other special reports and a subscription to my brand-new newsletter, which is the equivalent of two additional chapters every month, claim your copy here.
