Shouts out to…
Shouts out to Clarissa from Los Angeles who after years of jumping from one career to the next is finally making the jump she's always dreamed of: becoming an artist. “The older I get the more layers I find myself shedding. Getting to the core, with each jump, of who I am and what my purpose is." Congratulations on your most recent art show, Clarissa. We're happy you've come back to your passion and made your final jump. Do you have a jump to share? We want to hear it!
On the podcast…
Last week’s When to Jump podcast guest the ever-fearless Mike McDerment co-founder and CEO of FreshBooks, shares with us his jump journey. Prior to FreshBooks, Mike ran his own design firm where he accidentally saved over an invoice and realized an unmet need in the market. Mike and his team dedicate themselves to executing extraordinary experiences every day for customers who want to focus on what they love, not their paperwork. Although he’s taken several jumps and enjoyed the journey of them all, his advice for those who feel stuck is: Just start. If you don’t like it, then start something new. Tune in to Mike’s episode today. It’ll have you feeling ready to take on any jump with a smile and a sense of fearlessness.
