In this step-by-step guide, Jess shows you how she went from one career to another offering up moments of inspiration and many more moments of “DON’T DO IT!” Just in case you’re thinking about it.This talk is about doing good, by doing what you love. It’s also about making people laugh. Please laugh. Jess still isn’t totally convinced she made the right move!
