In this episode Jill and I discuss…
- How much simpler life becomes when you do the bold and daring
- How she’s running her third business spending as much time as she can NOT overdoing it and overachieving and making sure things are perfect
- Her book, The Best Business Book In The World* (*according to my mom)
- That you are not alone, that there is a community out there to support you (like The Founding Moms!) and that you should go find one.
