Christine Axsmith grew up in a area where most people didn’t go to college. Later, her career took a sharp left turn after taking a stand against waterboarding at the CIA. From there, she reinvented herself as the owner of a successful dog walking company, a guardian for the elderly and disabled, a trial attorney and a writer. These experiences taught her how to learn from successful people and to draw a roadmap to recreate their success. In recent years, as lawyers started getting replaced by software, it sparked Christine Axsmith’s interest in this topic.
Christine Axsmith has been published by NIST and NSA regarding information security law, has presented papers at MIT conferences and the International Bar Association, and actively participated in the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law - Electronic Commerce Working Group. Her research on encryption export became required reading at Harvard Law School.
She uses her extensive research skills to provide a roadmap for non-college success in her books by interviewing self-made millionaires and other people in the successful fields.
