Leadership. Journey: Skill or Personal Mission?
“Leadership is simply having something left over, after taking care of yourself, to care for someone or something else.”—John Ertha, Founder of Homestead
John Ertha died at the age of eighty‐two after a life dedicated to education, theater, and leadership development for children and teens. He taught them to “work hard with others to achieve a common goal and to expect great things from themselves. Most importantly,
