Comeback Snacks Emily O'Brien: Helping others

Episode Notes

Emily O'Brien made one bad decision that landed her in prison. While spending time with other inmates watching television and making popcorn, Emily also developed a business idea. A gourmet popcorn company called, Comeback Snacks. It not only satisfies cravings but also helps former inmates by giving them a second chance - a comeback.
