Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to learn something that can change my life, especially something that I can put to use once I'm out in society. I have read a few articles on how to start your own business. But I have never written out a business plan until now.

- Raul, in prison in California
I've been incarcerated since the age of 17, I am now 41, and it's places like Level that give people like me hope. The guides are insightful - I have learned a lot. I read the last one four times and frequently re-read to remember what I learned. A person told me about Level, so it's only right that I tell others.
- Lenzy, incarcerated in a state prison
I learned so much from this course. Education is the key to everyone's future. I hate passing my prison time learning nothing. I am working so hard to pull myself together to become a better person and make wise choices. Learning changes lives and builds a better future for people. I thank you all at Level so much.
- Robert, in prison in Florida
Thank you for allowing me to broaden my horizons. Because of you, I build more character and have hopes for my future. I suffer from combat PTSD. I need self expression and relaxation. Art seems to help both. I'd like to find more ways to use art to unlock interior feelings that are not usually expressed.
- Jeffery, incarcerated in California
I'm very interested in the educational, job training and personal development guides you offer. Thank you for looking out for us forgotten, marginalized folks. It's easy to wallow in self-pity and hatred here, so I really appreciate these opportunities to focus on something better.
- Aldo, in prison in California
I would like to thank you for helping me with my advancement in a place that is scared of technology as a whole, when that's the way the world is heading. Computer science is the way of the future, and without it, we can't truly solve real world problems. It will help us get more innovative.
- Wrandy, incarcerated in Texas
I work five days a week. This busy schedule doesn't allow me to take classes in the prison education department. So I rely on places like yours in order for me to learn on my own time. Thank you for being there. Your business guide helped fill in blank spots and plan things out in a systematic order.
- Divesh, in prison in South Carolina
Thank you for everything you do for me and all of us Level is changing my life one lesson at a time. I want to uplift others and help them get on the right path just how Level is doing to me.
- Felix, incarcerated in Texas
Thank you for offering these guides to us in prison. There are many of us who wish to change our lives, to grow, to learn and redeem through knowledge and hard work. I'm very happy to find this program, as the opportunities for growth are here.
- Chase, incarcerated in California
You have become something special to me and my goal of bettering myself. Your kindness has touched my heart. I wanted to share with you how much I have changed in the past year. I'm not a bad mad and I do have goals in life that I'd like to reach. I look forward to all the new guides you have coming up.
- Jacob, in prison in Texas
I very much appreciate the service that Level provides. I truly enjoy being able to continue to learn and prepare for when I am able to leave prison and jump back into the world full steam ahead with all the knowledge I have gained. It is by God's grace we can help one another.
- Devin, incarcerated in Missouri
I use this guide constantly to motivate and inspire me to achieve my dreams and goals of becoming a successful entrepreneur. I related to the hard work and the pride you feel when you see your business succeeding. It motivates me and encourages me to not give up on my dreams of starting my own business.
- Miguel, incarcerated in California
I learned a lot. The guide helps in so many facets of starting a business, from checking to see if you are ready to finding out what business is right for you, to the worksheet on preparing to launch. Thank you for everything you all do at Level. You all are making a difference. God bless!
- Luis, in prison in California
I appreciate you and your program. I cannot thank you enough for giving me what I want most - knowledge. It gives me the opportunity and joy to teach others the newfound wisdom I've learned. I would like to learn about every topic you have to offer me. I acknowledge my potential of limitless growth of my image and soul
- Alexander, incarcerated in Missouri
I want to thank you guys for helping us, some of us have nothing to turn to but the streets. You've given hope to the hopeless. I read the guide everyday and use my cellmates to test my answers. I already have recommended Level a few times. You are an avenue for guys to get to learn something to take home.
- LaVoy, in prison in Texas
I greatly appreciate the educational value of the courses you provide. I understand that the tools in this guide are life changing for the better. I anticipate that I will be applying what I learned from this business guide in the near future. I humbly request the second and third business guides.
- Sterling, in prison in California
I found your entrepreneurship guide to be very informative, especially to those of us with little knowledge of how to start and maintain a legal business. I learned about unfamiliar terms like product-market fit, unmet needs, buyer persona, ROI, continuous improvement, break-even point and working capital. Thank you.
- Branden, incarcerated in Nevada
I'm in a single man cell 24 hours a day, seven days a week - indefinite solitary confinement until I go home. Currently I'm Florida's one, only and worst super-max prison in the state. They provide us zero educational assistance. But through Level and its guides, I've begun a journey of meeting educational goals.
- Jason, in prison in Florida
I had no idea how to go about starting my own business and the information in this guide was very helpful. It provided information on how to conduct research before starting a business and how to plan everything. I want other people to learn how to be entrepreneurs, too, and help create a better society.
- Gabriel, in prison in Pennsylvania
Thank you for mailing me the educational guides. They really help me to keep focused on being a law-abiding citizen and productive member of society. I have so much I am struggling with. I can't wait to receive How To Start Your Own Business: Thrive In The First Year and then Psychology: Motivation And Emotion.
- Lathon, in prison in Arkansas
Being in Texas prisons, our chances of getting rehabilitated are slim to none when it comes to prison officials. So we have to be self-willing on rehabilitating ourselves. I would like to tell you all how highly appreciative that I am for you all blessing me and others with these learning guides.
- Jermain, in prison in Texas
I'm so grateful to Level for giving me, an incarcerated inmate, a chance to advance my skill to be better prepared for the workforce after leaving prison. I'm willing to learn as much as possible. With living costs being so high, it will take more than one job so I don't want to be limited to just one trade.
- James, in prison in Georgia
You all at Level relate to the incarcerated's desires and needs to still be productive citizens in society. You realize we are still human beings with families and friends, too. We still strive to return better and renewed! Thank you! I really appreciate this guide and all that you are doing.
- Joseph, in prison in Texas
I have come to a point in life where I value education. I have seen results in my life and I want to encourage others to succeed. I would like to be involved in an organization like you are creating, not only do you educate, you also instill hope in lives.
- David, incarcerated in Texas
I thank you for caring. I'm currently in court seeking resentencing under the youthful offender act. I've been in prison for 22+ years, since I was 20. I am going to be a success story when released. The single worst moment of my life will not be what determines who I am nor how I live my life moving forward.
- John, incarcerated in Illinois
I learned a lot more from this guide than from a business college book because this guide kept it simple and touched every point that you need to know about starting your own business. I wish I would have known about this course years ago. Thank you, Level.
- Miguel, incarcerated in California
Thank you for making me one of the first to receive the guide How To Start Your Own Business: Prepare To Launch. Learning from these guides makes my time off from work into quality time. When I am learning, time flies in here and it gives me a positive, worthwhile use of my time. Thank you for having this program.
- Bruce, incarcerated in North Carolina
I am continuously seeking self improvement through education, reflection and applying knowledge. I don't just want to learn, I want to build my character. I was surprised how many practical things I learned from this guide. There were very clear guidelines. It helped me envision the possibilities in the future.
- Thomas, incarcerated in Pennsylvania
I want to thank you for everything because I'm trying to get as much education and as many certificates as I can. So I can get out and get a job and go to a good college. I can get moved to a different prison and you all just look me up and keep sending me content. I could be in any prison yard and Level is allowed.
- Jose, in a California State Prison
You guys are a window to those of us that want to change and really see ourselves as businessmen. This guide has eye-opening info for start-ups. I want to participate in any and all your team has to offer. I am very much into business and innovation. Please involve me in your future activities.
- Jerson, incarcerated in New Jersey
I would just like to thank you all for creating these educational guides. It really means a lot to me to know that there are people out there who care about people in here like me. I really believe that the more people are able to learn and educate themselves then the world can be a safer place.
- Jessica, in prison in California
I've tried a million things to beat my depression and emptiness in this dead world. I never thought the simple act of learning could bring a brighter mood in such a hopeless environment. When I'm learning something, I feel worth something. Thank you Level, you rock.
- Robert, in solitary confinement in Florida
You all are doing freaking awesome! Knowledge is power. From a prisoner's standpoint, this place keeps people ignorant. I can't even get any of the things they offer here. The more information and education you all offer, the more I try to share it. I look forward to your upcoming materials - just keep them coming.
- Jay, incarcerated in Texas
Thank you for existing and for helping those of us who sincerely on a daily basis strive to rehabilitate and educate ourselves to heal, recover and grow as men, husbands, fathers within our community. So much potential exists in here! We burn for more opportunities to accomplish and be praised.
- Jeffrey, incarcerated in North Carolina
I have been down for 10 years. It's stressful sharing a cell. Your meditation guide touches on so many more subjects than my class did and it was all explained in a very easy manner with humor and stories. I have less stress, anxiety and have found more peace. I am more patient and happy. I can express myself better.
- Allen, in prison in Pennsylvania
Though I came into incarceration uneducated in the least, now I have these outstanding opportunities to lift up myself and to become proud of who I have become. Reinventing myself and discovering who I can become through education is so very vital in this period of my life.
