In this episode of the "How I Got Hired" podcast, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jenna Harrison, a mindset and business coach. Jenna shared her career journey with me, which included working in corporate roles, moving to Spain to work on a nude beach, and eventually becoming a coach. We covered a range of topics during our conversation, including salary negotiation, clarity in decision-making, and the power of mindset. Jenna emphasized the importance of being grounded in one's mission and taking risks to achieve new results. I found her story to be incredibly inspiring and I hope that our listeners will be motivated to pursue their passions and create fulfilling careers.
