Jessica Yarmey, CEO of KickHouse, featured as a part of Authority Magazine’s series about “How We Can Do To Cultivate Our Mental, Physical, Emotional, & Spiritual Wellbeing”.
“Listen. Find time to be quiet so that you can open up and listen. You can ask the universe to give you a message or a sign. If you’re constantly overstimulated, you won’t hear the answer, and you might miss the sign. When I was laid off from Gold’s Gym, I went on a trip to Miami with a close friend. I went to the ocean and asked it what I should do with my life. The repetition of the waves brought the word “resilience” to me. There would be another wave, and another. I understood that there would be tough times, and I just needed to keep fighting.”
