From Prison to Prosperity


From Prison to Prosperity
Motivational Speaker
Life Coach


Erik’s story is one that truly shows the power of change and what’s possible. From addiction, lack of identity, and no direction to a life of purpose, fulfillment and impact.

At age 23, Erik found himself facing life in prison. With his back against the wall, he finally had to face his biggest enemy up until that point…..himself.

Erik had to go to prison to find freedom but the truth is, he realized he lost his freedom long before that day in the courtroom. He recognized we can be in “prison” without physically being in prison.

He spent 4 years relentlessly pursuing personal growth, coaching, speaking, running workshops and even being published in a newspaper for a speaking event while incarcerated.

Erik is a powerful and dynamic inspirational speaker who’s message focuses on helping people break from from the chains that are holding them back and start creating a life of freedom and impact.

Erik is a dynamic speaker and incredible coach who radiates and brings out a special energy in all who he comes in contact with. It’s clear this was what he was meant to do.

“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.”
