Game On: Leaders Who Last is an energizing and encouraging anthology with contributions from entrepreneurs and business leaders across all sectors who have overcome obstacles and “leveled up” through challenges. Award winning playwright, Richard Zieman, had this to say about Jill’s chapter in the book:

“Becoming Brave to Build my Business is a riveting story written by a remarkable woman who has lived a life that will transform the world for the better. It’s her love, her compassion, and her belief that there is still good in our world, is what gives her, and the reader renewed strength to lead. This and other stories in Game On: Leaders Who Last, show that emotional intelligence, focus, determination and heart can overcome so many hurdles and lead us to discover our best selves.”
