Jessica Hische | Finding Yourself All Over Again

In this antidote to a “quit your job and do what you love” talk, Jessica explains that the key to answering the question we’ve all been asked since we were little—”What you want to be when you grow up?”—is finding out who you are in the first place. And discovering that “who you are” is never static—it shifts and transforms over and over again as you grow, change, mature, hormonally implode, etc. She’ll share transformative personal experiences that have changed how she approaches work, walk through how she balances parenting and professional life, and talk about why we should celebrate who we are and what we’re capable of at every stage—from the naive beginner to the seasoned pro.
