A heartfelt conversation with author Jessica Zimmerman on her brilliant new book, Sleeping With a Stranger. She also talks about losing her sister Courtney in a car accident when she was only three years old. Jessica shares with great depth and authenticity about her journey to the present moment.
When Jessica Zimmerman survived a childhood car crash that took the life of her only sister, she knew even then, she couldn’t waste her life. After meeting her husband at the University of Arkansas, she returned to her hometown and built a successful wedding floral design business, Zimmerman Events, that grew alongside her three young children. When her husband fell tragically ill, Jessica realized that she had to begin earning more than just the “fun money,” transforming her zero-profit events company into a seven-figure business, all while caring for her ailing husband.
Today, Jessica teaches her students and followers how to set healthy business boundaries, invest in themselves, and create businesses and lives they love. Her work has been featured in People, Business Insider, Entrepreneur and Forbes.
