1) From Corporate Law to Vision Care
In our very first article of the LQP series, we interviewed Jeremy Bornstein, the VP of Growth at 2020 On-site. 2020 On-site provides high quality eye exams on-site through their mobile vision centers and Jeremy is a big part of their expansion and success.
After working in corporate law for a short period of time, Jeremy realized that he did not have a passion for his work. He wanted to be a part of building something so he immediately started exploring other options. When he was presented with the opportunity to join this Boston start-up, Jeremy knew it was the right fit. He quit law after only ten months of practicing, and he had a lot of advice and insight into transitioning from law to management. Read his story here.
