My “Blame it on Bergen LEADS” share is about as current as you can get. After a long, successful partnership at my former law firm, I recently opened my own practice, where I am representing small businesses and individuals in bankruptcy, restructuring, and commercial litigation matters. As I embark upon the challenge of being a small business owner, it has been helpful to lean on the lessons I learned in Bergen LEADS from Pat, Lynne, Amanda, and others, including staying true to your core values and learning to adapt to your circumstances. The lesson? The principles of leadership apply at every stage of life!
