Jo Hassan did not just ‘arrive’ as the vibrant pink personality she is so well known for. Through her life’s journey, you’ll read of wisdom and strategies that you too could embrace. The Girl from the small English Village, met and married the Man from Cyprus in Far North Queensland, and soon after inherited a 12 year old step-daughter - a very lonely and distressed girl from Turkey.
This resulted in step-parenting in a culturally diverse family unit, with constant troubles along the way led to postnatal depression (PND), and ongoing issues with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) when Jo finally had her own baby. And yet Jo found ways to work through these, and business challenges over a 20 year period to become the ‘Queen of Resilience’.
For Jo, the colour PINK has long been her ‘go-to happy place’ and became a strong component of her ability to work through her PTSD. In this book she shares the background and how she overcame the struggles to be “the sum of all those parts”… to evolve and now share her how. If you struggle with mental illness or know someone who does, this book may be helpful. And especially so if you or they are a small business owner.
Prepare to be shocked by some of the Jagged Edges Jo describes, but ready to also laugh at the surprising co-incidences that make up Jo’s delightful story, and how she arrived at creating the PEPP® formula for finding your own resilience in life and in business.
