"Jess Ekstrom's story is a great example of how pursuing your entrepreneurial passion and being a force for good can lead to extraordinary things!"

ZACH KITSCHKE, CANVA CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER

HI, I'M JESS EKSTROM!

I’m an author, speaker, and the founder of Headbands of Hope and Mic Drop Workshop. Here’s my story…

In college I started my company, Headbands of Hope, based on the idea that  SMALL ACTS OF KINDNESS can make a HUGE IMPACT.

My first ever pop-up (I actually had to rush home because I remembered everything BUT the headbands!)
This was our first ever DIY headband day where the kiddos could actually design their own headbands!
The moment I saw Headbands of Hope in Ulta stores for the first time- see my red eyes from crying! 😭

Now, Headbands of Hope has donated over 1 MILLION headbands to kids with illnesses and reached every hospital in America and 22 countries.

Jess Ekstrom is leaving her mark on this world and it's amazing to watch her do it.

It's a page turner that you won't be able to put down until you've finished, but holds lessons that will reveal themselves to you for a lifetime.

MARC RANDOLPH

Over the years, I’ve realized that my success is not about how far I can reach, but  HOW FAR I CAN HELP OTHERS REACH. 

 

Which is why I launched Mic Drop Workshop: 

HELPING THOUSANDS OF WOMEN TELL THEIR STORIES AS PAID KEYNOTE SPEAKERS AND AUTHORS.

THE FIRST TIME I HEARD JESS SPEAK AT FAILFEST I WAS BLOWN AWAY. BLOWN AWAY BY HER COMPANY, HER SPEAKING, HER MESSAGE, BUT MOST OF ALL, BLOWN AWAY BY HER.
