Jessica's "Why"

I used to think that my why was my children.  Isn’t that every mother’s “why”?  But then I realized that they are just a part of my larger journey.  Since I was a young girl, I’ve always strived to be heard, to know that my voice matters and the things I believe have a place in this world.  My why boils down to this:   To  make every person I meet in this life feel like they matter, so they can find validation in their journey and live the life of their dreams.

Best Business Tip

Show up. The number 1 reason most entrepreneurs fail is because they get discouraged and stop.  Stop quitting!  Keep showing up and remember that imperfect progress is still progress.  I love that saying “even the slowest runner is lapping everyone on the couch.”  It’s the same for business. The ones who show up are the ones who are going to succeed, so stop with the stopping.  It’s never perfect. It’s always going to be a learning process, so learn. Show up. Every day. Don’t quit.

This is Us and a breath of fresh air

This is Us.  Have you watched it? Are you loving it?  I am addicted to it.  I think all of my friends are addicted to it.  It's a beautiful capsule of heart wrenching fictional reality and I swoon. The reaction has been visceral. Not just for me, but for everyone I...

living out loud and giving up HGTV

I was talking with a friend about cable TV. She was mortified when I told her that for 5 years we had no cable television in our home. Her first question was "You're a designer! How did you watch HGTV?!?" Queue the look of horror when I said, "I didn't." "So you've...
