As an incarcerated individual, Caroll knows the power of a dollar. While in prison, he taught himself how to read and trade stocks, and now he shares a simple, powerful message: we all need to be more savvy with our money. Curtis Carroll is simply known as “Wall Street” by his fellow inmates at San Quentin State Prison because of his winning reputation for picking and trading stocks. Currently serving a 54-to-life sentence, Carroll founded the prison’s financial literacy program as a way to better equip and empower inmates. For the past 10 years, he’s been teaching the basics of personal finance and how to trade and buy stocks. His goal is give others the tools and the hope to build a life beyond crime.
