What JP Lessard does outside of work


About JP Lessard

  • Who inspires me


    Anybody with a “Mission Possible” mindset. Those are the people who ask both “Why” and “Why Not?” and who push the world forward. I’m lucky to work with many of these people every day at Miles IT and with our customers and partners.

  • Favorite quotes


    • “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” – Albert Einstein
    • “It always seems impossible until it is done.” – Nelson Mandela
    • “If you can dream it, you can do it.” – Walt Disney
  • I like…


    • Adventure trips
    • Florida Gators football
    • Finding better ways to get things done
  • Words of wisdom


    It is easy to find a reason why something can’t be done—to sit on the sideline and be satisfied with being “right.” It’s hard (and fun) to wonder what COULD be, challenge yourself and others to rise to the occasion, and be only slightly surprised when you are able to create something awesome.

  • My big goal


    No matter what the world throws at us, succeed together anyway!
