Ricky Staub — Everyone Deserves a Second Chance


In this episode, I chat with filmmaker and creative genius, Ricky Staub. Ricky is an accomplished filmmaker. By his mid-twenties, he was living the dream! Well, the dream for some, anyway. He was an assistant producer for Sam Mercer, who co-produced most of M. Night Shyamalan’s films. While in Philadelphia working on Shyamalan’s film The Last Airbender, he met a man that changed his life and the course of his career.

Ricky started a film company that has made world class content for companies like Google, Nike, Coca-Cola, Jeep, Reebok, NBC, Universal, and the Philadelphia Eagles. He loves his work but his favorite part about what they do is their desire to help formally imprisoned men make a living and a life again. They have created a unique program for doing this. You’re going to learn a ton from our talk and I know you’ll love Ricky and his heart to love and help these men. Get ready! This is a good one.
