Hi, I’m Jill Shapiro, IIN Class of 2011, and founder of Wellness by Jill. I traded in a life full of stress and anxiety working in finance for green juice, meditation and yoga. I am passionate about empowering women in the corporate world that are stressed and tired from the demands of their jobs and frustrated with their health. I help implement simple, healthy choices that make a big impact on women's lives as a whole. You can connect with me on my blog, Facebook, and Twitter.
I remember so clearly back in high school, I decided that because I loved math, I should be an accountant.
An accountant? I mean, doesn’t that just make sense? Back then I thought that this was the logical pathway to a fulfilling career. Sit behind a desk at a computer, work your behind off, collect your paycheck, and pay your rent and living expenses. Repeat daily, weekly, monthly.
I’ve learned a lot over the past year. I know now that just because you are good at something does not mean that you are passionate about it. Real passion is much deeper than just that.
