About Main Background2.jpg

Orlando Salinas’s inmate number was 343543. He spent 13 years of his life in Texas prisons. He became a hard-core cocaine addict for 10 years, went to prison for burglary, and was tried and convicted for homicide. He was a loser father, loser husband, and a loser son. 


On January 18, 1997, his whole world came crashing down. He robbed a store again, for one more hit on his daughter's 4th birthday and was on his way to prison for the rest of his life. Orlando had ruined his life and his family’s life — there was nothing he could do! He was hopeless and he just wanted to kill his worthless self.


Despite his hopeless situation, Orlando chose to believe in the impossible... and a miracle happened for him. He was sent back to prison and on July 21, 2003, he walked out of prison for the last time, but this time with a dream. A dream that said, “I can do more, I can have more, and I can become more if I only choose to.”


Today, Orlando is a business owner, entrepreneur, motivational speaker, personal development mentor, and international evangelist. He is also the founder and CEO of the Choose to Change Foundation, a 501-C3 Christian-based, nonprofit organization. So how does a loser drug addict, ex-convict like Orlando rise to the top? Well, that’s exactly what Orlando’s seminars and keynote presentations are all about. He shows individuals all over the world what it really takes to turn your life, your business, and your career around!
