How do you turn your life around and change the trajectory of your family and community? Caron Butler, NBA Champion, and two-time All-Star, did just that.
The native of Racine, Wisconsin spent much of his youth on the streets and in prison. As he saw that lifestyle take away the lives of his friends, he realized he needed a change.
Caron joined Down to Business to talk about how he dedicated his life to basketball, and through it, committed himself to education and business. Today, he is giving back to his community and helping the next generation realize their potential.

Down to Business is a unique interview show that delves into the stories, ideas, and thoughts of some of the world’s most successful people in business, finance, entrepreneurship, technology, sports, and investing. Instead of focusing on where they are now, we focus on how our guests got there; how they went from the sales floor to the boardroom, the people and decisions that helped them along the way, and the nights where they were curled up in the fetal position with a glass of Merlot wondering if they had just ruined it all. Real life stories that have led to real life success.
