Sometimes the main difference

BETWEEN PEOPLE WHO DO BIG THINGS AND THE PEOPLE THAT DON'T IS JUST THE COURAGE TO BEGIN WHERE YOU ARE.

Hi, I’m Jess!

I like hiking, telling corny jokes and spending time with my hubs and my pup. I turned my dorm room startup into a seven-figure business that helps hundreds of thousands of kids fight cancer through fashion. Now I speak, write and teach to help you find your impact.

Enough about me,
Your audience is waiting!

Headbands of Hope

What started with a few headbands pieced together in a college dorm room has grown to over 350,000 headbands donated – for every headband purchased, we donate one to a child battling cancer.

So I’m kicking it up a notch from my first publishing debut when I got in Chicken Soup for the Soul when I was 12 (please, hold your applause).
