My daughter is passionate about social media and couldn’t figure out what she needed to do as a potential career. The time she spent with Jo was invaluable, Jo’s social media advice was very practical in terms of possible career options. The skills and empathy Jo brought to the coaching process would benefit anyone and I heartily endorse Jo's work.
