"Sometimes you just make someone's day by smiling, or giving someone a compliment, or just being kind."– Jessica Wills Thornton
Jessica Wills Thornton (@iamjessicawillsthornton) is a creative artist who has worked on numerous commissions for clients in the Harrogate area.
After years of hard work, one of her oil-based collections was displayed at a prestigious coffee shop in our hometown, and she has since gone on to produce numerous works of art for clients as far afield as Mallorca!
In our wide-ranging conversation, we discuss tips for getting started with creative projects; the importance of mindset to success; how her dog one day left a very surprising package; and so much more!
It’s also worth noting me and Jess recorded this episode LONG before the recent pandemic for my old podcast, and her enthusiasm and creativity provide a nice change of pace for Entrepreneurs Can Party today!
