About our Guest

On this episode of the Positive University Podcast, bestselling author Jon Gordon talks with Jess Ekstrom. Jess is the founder and CEO of Headbands of Hope, a company she started as a junior in college in 2012. For every headband sold, a headband is given to a child with cancer. She’s been featured on the TODAY Show, Good Morning America, and all kinds of top media outlets. More importantly, Headbands of Hope has donated over half a million headbands reaching every children’s hospital in the United States and in fifteen countries. She’s making a huge impact! Her new book Chasing the Bright Side recently released with praise from one of the cofounders of Netflix, among others, and Apple picking the audio version as their Must-Listen of the month.. which by the way Jess thinks is because of her Bill Nye the Science Guy impression she did when she was narrating. : )

You’ll definitely be inspired by Jess’s story and the practical insights she shares.
