How Do-Over Days Give Us Another Chance at Our Best with Jacob Green (Episode #93)

If life seems to be serving you one complexity after another these days, then this conversation will feel like a gift. Jacob Green’s experiences, insights and stories transformed my way of thinking about “setbacks” and the opportunities hidden there.


About Our Guest

Jacob Green is a nationally recognized leadership, crisis management expert, and author of the Amazon New Release Best Seller “See Change Clearly.” He took what was his rock bottom and shifted to a growth mindset which he would later share with others who could connect to his situation. And it all started while volunteering for the Turkey Hotline!

Another incredible episode so make sure you tune in until the end to get all the nuggets!
