A Career Marked by Coincidence, Fate or Hard Work?

Jeff Bowen is a humble guy. He attributes many of his expansive career opportunities and accomplishments simply to coincidence. “It’s curious,” said Bowen. “Much of my career seems to have been coincidental—being in the right place at the right time.” If all of that is luck, Bowen is “lucky” in the same way as Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, one of several people linked to the aphorism, “I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.”
