Hilary Jastram – A Lemons and Lemonade Story

By March 4, 2020 No Comments

Most people get diagnosed with a debilitating chronic illness and call it a day. But not Hilary Jastram.  You’d be hard pressed to find a more enthusiastic or positive person walking the planet today!

Hilary took her diagnosis as a wake-up call.  A forced re-set, if you will.  She then used it to create not only a successful editing and copywriting business, but also an organization dedicated to educating, supporting and empowering chronically ill entrepreneurs.  No moss grows under this woman’s feet!

Hilary was kind enough to share her story with us.  You’ll hear how she went from a less than perfect fit in old jobs, to literally creating the future she needed, one handshake, phone all and e-mail at a time. Refusing to take no for an answer, Hilary has now established herself as an in-demand book editor, copywriter and author coach.  Having edited nearly 100 books at this point while also battling recurring health issues, Hilary’s infectious laugh, voice and sense of humor both attracts clients and inspires others to act in a positive way.

If you’re looking for 35 minutes worth of uplifting triumph and awesome humor, this episode of HELIX Stories is for you!

(P.S.  Hilary is also my editor, and I could not be happier about it!)
