The story of how an unexpected volunteer leadership role fueled an even more unexpected journey into entrepreneurship forms the basis of Leader by Accident. I learned so many lessons along the way, and in the book I share those lessons and what I think they can mean to you. Thanks for visiting. I hope you enjoy it.
