Our guest on this episode is Jade Simmons. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to hear Jade speak and perform a few years ago and her combination of talent, passion and inspiration has been wowing audiences around the world for years.
Jade has lived a truly extraordinary life: she is a world class pianist, author, exceptional keynote speaker and a 2020 Independent Presidential Candidate. She has played renowned halls, performed at the White House, and is one of the rare classical artists invited to perform at the South by Southwest Festival.
She is the author of the #1 Amazon Bestselling book Audacious Prayers for World Changers. And to top it all off, she was crowned Miss Illinois in 1999 and was named first runner-up at the Miss America 2000 pageant. A truly remarkable career.
In this episode Jade talks about her amazing journey from her childhood through the present; challenges she overcame; her passion and drive; how to re-frame rejection, and why she chose to run for the Presidency of the United States.
