About Ron L. James

INSPIRATIONAL SPEAKER,
ENTREPRENEUR, AUTHOR

For more than 25 years, Ron L. James was in and out of prison because of choices. While in prison, he met a man who encouraged him to write his story. As he wrote, he realized he did not like the man he had become. It was then that he began intentionally making different choices.

Seven years ago, Ron was released from prison and has been a productive member of society ever since. He has been drug and alcohol-free for over twelve years. He is passionate about helping others understand that they can avoid the mistakes he made. As a result of this passion, he now shares his message across the country as a Keynote speaker. His message about CHOICES continues to influence and inspire students and professionals to “make their next choice their best choice.”
