    Such an inspiring story. What a great reminder to us all that we need to stop and remember to pursue our passion--and that there is always a way to find a path ahead, even in the face of tough challenges. Thanks so much for sharing Jordan!

    This is truly inspiring. Thank you for sharing your motivations. It's so easy to look at companies and small businesses and assume that you know WHY they operate but I actually think that we are very rarely correct. Thanks for reminding us all to take the time to strip away our assumptions.

      Thanks for your support. I hope to really make an impact. Time away from work and regular life due to illness can be very challenging but also helps shape new perspectives.
