    Oh, you are so inspiring Jess! I can’t wait to read your European adventures!
    This episode was amazing. Again! Thank you so much for sharing so much wisdom and life tips. I am in a place in finding who am I now (after some big professional transformations). Any books on this? Thank you again for all your kindness!

    1. Fun, Gina! I’m not sure I have the perfect book to recommend, but I’d suggest starting with my all-time favorite, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. : )
