Ep 72: Gail Jessen – The Truth About Living Where The Story Takes You
In This Episode
Before starting her popular website, A Series Of Adventures in August 2015 (and still going strong), Gail was “blindly” following other people’s rules…
She got good grades, went to college, found a job, and continued checking off a list of accomplishments that didn’t matter to her.
Gail opens up about her transformation from being completely sick and tired of life to living life full of passion and fulfillment. She admitted she was fully aware of what was happening, yet she chose to conform instead of breaking free.
Stubborn by nature, it took an extreme case to wake her up — an autoimmune disease that would end her life prematurely…
What you’ll hear today is exactly steps she took to heal herself from her autoimmune disease, build a business with no special talent, and live a lifestyle most people dream about.
