Jessica Stroud is a shining example of what’s possible if you are willing to learn the lessons life wants to teach you as you go from level to level. Jessica believes you can have EVERYTHING you want in life, but first you have to define what “everything” is. She’s an accomplished business owner, leader in her community, speaker, trainer, and author. But it didn’t start that way.
