Mompreneur on Fire - Jess Valant

Jessica Valant is a pilates instructor and a physical therapist.  She just sold her studios in Hawaii and is now focusing her time taking care of her little one AND running an online community and membership-based health program at I wanted to talk with her because she not only because I love the idea of an affordable health program (think workouts and food guides for the busy mom) and I love that she is a mom making it happen.  She’s transitioning from Brick & Mortar business to Online all with a kid in tow. 

My questions are endless but start with: What? How? Why?
