Leadership and entrepreneurship lessons along the way.

About Me

Hi, my name is Joshua Breland. I am a husband, dad, and communications leader in Indianapolis, Indiana.

I was born and raised in Louisiana. After turning 21 years old I moved to Boulder, Colorado and lived in Colorado for almost 3 years. Since then I have lived in Oklahoma, North Carolina, and New Mexico. Whoa! I now live just north of Indianapolis in Carmel, Indiana and love it.

I try not to speak to speak in buzzwords but I do consider myself a serial entrepreneur. What that means is that I fail often and still have a lot to learn. I hope we can learn some together.
