Tell us a little about a typical day in the life of Jessica Medina?
My typical day is very busy. I make sure I prepare my kids to go to school in the morning and then my work day begins. Normally I have a schedule of on air interviews I have to do for my current employer, articles for Yahoo!, and overseeing every part of my company Loving Curves Collective. The best part of my day is the evening time finishing my day being a mom, with homework, playtime, dinner, talk, bedtime story, etc. I have many jobs.
