Richard Stanley

Richard Stanley was raised in a lower income area of South San Diego. Although he was a high school dropout, he obtained a business degree as a serial entrepreneur--in bank robbery.

As acknowledgment of his work in the banking industry, he was graciously accepted into an institution of higher education operated by the California state prison system to further his studies in the criminal justice field with a full-ride scholarship for no less than seven years, out of a possible eight.

During his tenure at the Donovan campus, he specialized in a course in hustling and earned an informal degree in procuring life's necessities and wilderness survival skills. For his efforts, he was rewarded with a sabbatical of sorts and was allowed seven months of personal time in solitude for reflection to just appreciate life. He was off the grid, so to speak, and not allowed cell phones, laptops, or even eating utensils at times. Although Stanley initially declined the retreat time, the institution insisted he spend time in a remote part of campus.

Because most employers would not recognize his degree in higher education, Stanley found it difficult to obtain employment in any field once he left his educational institution. He eventually became an ironworker until he was sidelined with an injury. Using his entrepreneurial skills and exclusive state-funded education, he developed more conventional ways to hustle and currently serves as a consultant to business leaders on the adult marketing world and is co-owner of the online classified website, freevurse.com.

He also has become a day trader in Bitcoin and Litecoin because he has vowed to never rob a bank again, and now with cryptocurrency, he will never need a bank again.

Stanley lives in Newport Beach, California, with his girlfriend and her daughter. He enjoys the finest marijuana and excellent Southern California red wine.
