Welcome to the 83rd episode of the Give A Heck Podcast!

Join Dwight Heck and his guest Jessica Tietjen as she shares how her journey didn’t unfold the way she was told about but kept herself open to the different opportunities around her.

One such opportunity didn’t look much to her at first because she thought it wasn’t what was supposed to happen after graduating from Law. She took the job though and ended up actually enjoying the job and within the 12 years, she met her husband there as well.

She also shares her journey in writing her book while also being the vice president of her company and taking care of twins of 9 months old and a boy of 4 years old, while facing the pandemic as well. She shares how the skills she learned in her youth helped her through the tough time. Her book and her journey will be discussed in more detail in this episode so stay tuned!

In this episode, you’ll learn about:

● Being receptive to opportunities

● Growth and change affect relationships

● How her leadership skills got her through the pandemic

● How the pandemic helped her “slow down”

● Equipping yourself with the right mindset

● And much more!
