Immersed with Scott Jones

Writer / Kara Reibel Studying someone’s process of how they achieve success can only help others. Scott Jones generously shares his methodic approach of how he tackles challenges and projects through immersion.

Through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, they had formed a Team in Training group called Team Luke and began running various races around town in his honor.
