This is the Leadership Journey series on the Choosing Leadership Podcast.

I believe we all have a lot to learn from each other’s stories – of where we started, where we are now, and our successes and struggles on the way. With this series of interviews, my attempt is to give leaders an opportunity to share their stories and for all of us to learn from their generous sharing. If you know a leader whom you would like to see celebrated on the show, please send me a message on LinkedIn with their name.

Join us in a captivating conversation with Jeremy, the dynamic founder of Seven Factor Software, as he shares his extraordinary journey from a small rural town to leading a thriving software engineering consulting business. 

Delve into Jeremy’s non-traditional path to computer science, marked by resilience and the transformative power of failure. 

Gain insights into his unique leadership philosophy, distinguishing between peacetime and wartime CEO roles, and discover how Seven Factor Software navigated challenges to redefine success. 

Jeremy’s genuine approach to business, coupled with the Seven Factor Force Multiplier Program, offers inspiration for leaders seeking innovative solutions and authentic connections in the competitive world of software engineering.
