#35 Imperfection and Courage


Recorded live on 1150KKNW with special guest Jessica Honegger, where we dig into purpose, imperfection, and why community is so important to us all.

Today’s Guest

Today’s guest is an award-winning social entrepreneur and the founder and co-CEO of Noonday Collection, a fast-growing social impact fashion brand dedicated to designing and selling an inspired collection of jewelry and accessories made by Artisans in vulnerable communities. Join me in welcoming Jessica Honegger for Episode 35! Her passion for catalyzing others to step outside their comfort zones and live lives of purpose is certainly inspiring!

Key takeaways from this episode:

  • Try writing a letter of compassion to yourself, reflect on all that is going on right now, and give yourself grace.
  • Courage is not about fearlessness. It is about being scared and going anyway.
  • Compassion is an action. There are things that all of us can do.
  • We don’t need to show up perfectly. We just need to show up.
  • Perfection is paralyzing, and it will hold you back from action. The only way you can have an impact is by taking action.
  • Get close to the needs around you.
