Now the Good Stuff....

How Jess learned to embrace the leap, and the nets that appeared along the way.

After Jess' third layoff from professional service firms, a chance position that she took in the summer of 2015 changed her career path and her life. Happiness looks different to everyone, and she shares her particular flavor of living life in the now, not waiting for retirement to see the country, making art, and teaching design.

  • Does your life look the way you want it to? Jess flipped the live/work balance on it's head.
  • Engaging your passions, shift what you're doing now to get to where you want to be.
  • A crazy idea now may just be the best decision ever.
  • And yes, she can tell-all with the inside scoop of living in an RV
