Jessica Reinhart is a wife, a mom, and an entrepreneur. She believes wholeheartedly in the importance of using her time and talents towards work that makes a positive impact and in helping to build bridges that lead to togetherness. She founded Lumitory to be a light in the world by encouraging community and meaningful connection. Jess also serves on the board for Pay It Forward Day, a global initiative on a mission to spread kindness across the world. Jessica and her husband, Jeff, are New England natives with three young children who now call sunny Arizona “home.”
IF YOU HAVE EVER WANTED TO FIND COMMUNITY IN THE MIDST OF YOUR DREAM, THIS WAS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.
We were never meant to do this life alone. Jess joins the podcast this week to share what she’s learned on her journey to encourage others toward authentic community. She starts us off with her favorite personality profile tool, The Elements Assessment, and reminds us of the value in knowing ourselves and others.
You’ll be inspired to uncover new ways to build community whether in the pursuit of your dream or among your immediate neighbors. In fact, Jess and Lumitory have generously offered a fantastic giveaway to Devoted Dreamers listeners to support you in this effort. Learn more over on my Instagram.
She also teaches us how to search out people to work alongside us in our dreams and what to look for as we seek the right fit in these relationships.
