Jess Greene on The Fulfilling Life

March 27, 2013 1 Comment

Jess Greene, founder of Seek Your Course, is today’s guest on The Fulfilling Life.

Last summer I had the thrill of being a silent observer as Jess traveled across the U.S. all with the goal of sharing creativity with as many people as possible. From the first time I heard about Jess’s pursuit my attention was captured — I loved watching her on such an incredible journey.

I also watched Jess with a little jealousy, thinking how amazing it would be to do something like that. The beauty of someone like Jess is she shares her experiences with someone like me, who just isn’t in the place to pack everything up and live out of my car for several months.

Sharing adventurous and creative experiences is at the heart of everything Jess does, and is a huge component of her pursuit of living a fulfilled life. It was such a treat to spend time talking about the intersection of fulfillment, creativity and adventure with Jess during her interview. We also connected through our shared experience as middle school teachers.

I hope that listening to Jess will help spark some adventure in your life too.

Jess talked a lot about the importance of having time to reflect on the things that work best for her. She knows that big epic adventures are a huge part of her own life fulfillment. She is also learning that the simplicity of every day life and pursuing work she loves, in her own way, is also a big part of fulfillment.

The overarching theme with both the every day and adventurous is finding a way to really connect to work Jess loves.


“I need to feel like I’m reflecting and learning something — that makes me feel fulfilled.” ~Jess Greene

  1. Greetings, Jess and Kelly
    Isn’t it funny how we find a way to do the things that we really love, even if they are on the periphery, as in not a part of our “official” job description! Many of us have followed that path (myself included). Great interview.
