I had a spirited conversation this week with the entrepreneur
Jennifer Rohner from JenniferRohner.com.
Jennifer just recently quit her well paying corporate job in Retail Pharmacy and started her own business as a coach.
She is a very organized person and loves to plan. We talk about her process of leaving the corporate world. How long it took her from dream to execution and what it takes to succeed.
