Now available in paperback! One flicker of hope. That's all it takes to catapult yourself into the life you’ve always imagined. Join entrepreneur and bestselling author Jess Ekstrom as she shares her journey to creating good in the world while fulfilling her own dreams -- and teaches you how to do the same.

Do you have dreams for yourself and the world that are tucked away in your box of somedays? What would happen if today was the day you opened the box? And what if that box was the key to a better tomorrow?

In Chasing the Bright Side, Jess Ekstrom shares her own inspirational story of how optimism helped her overcome multiple challenges, and the dynamic ways her mindset propelled her as a young entrepreneur, international speaker, and philanthropist.  

Jess teaches us that success is not born out of skill, school, where we're from, who we know, or what we scored on the SAT. None of us were born ready, but we are born with something more important than skills. We're born with optimism -- the initial seed for success. Optimism fuels the belief that you can be the one to create the good the world needs. But you've got to hone it, practice it, and choose to live from it.

Chasing the Bright Side will give you the practical tools and encouragement you need to:

  • Embrace the life-changing power of optimism
  • Activate your unique purpose
  • Write your own story

Jess's story is sure to inspire you to start Chasing the Bright Side -- right where you are.

Praise for Chasing the Bright Side:

"Chasing the Bright Side is essential reading for anyone facing a challenge, in work or in life. With emotion, humility, and humor (and some amazing stories), Jess Ekstrom not only demonstrates how anyone with a dream can eventually persevere, but also shows by example how we all can tap into the passion to do so. It's the book I wish I had read before starting my own entrepreneurial journey, but luckily it's not too late for everyone else. It's a page-turner that you won't be able to put down until you've finished but holds lessons that will reveal themselves to you for a lifetime."

--Marc Randolph, Netflix cofounder and first CEO
