FORBES: 8 Ways to Work and Travel at the Same Time

Jessica Zemple believes that people are like oysters with pearls hidden within them and she has made it her mission to help uncover them. A professional life and business coach, Zemple spent over fifteen years leading Fortune 500 companies through major organizational transformations. Now, the self-proclaimed pearl shucker is focused on living her best life, traveling the world and helping others discover their inner purpose. 

She built her own business, Life Shucker (naturally), so she could provide leadership coaching, workshops, retreats, and spark inspiration with groups all over the world. She is a traveler. She is an entrepreneur.  And, like many of us, she wanted to create a life where she could balance both successfully as a traveling entrepreneur.

FORBES: One Smart Way To Move Forward When You're Stuck At A Crossroads

Then I met Jessica Zemple, a writer and coach who shared a story with me that changed everything, especially the way I operate...She saw my emotional confusion and shared an excerpt from the Tao of Pooh, which in summary goes as follows: So often, we try to force the round peg into the square hole and the square peg into the round hole—simply an egotistical desire of making pegs fit where they don’t belong. Wu Wei (ancient Chinese principle) instead says “don’t try too hard.” It asks us to trust in the natural laws around us and let things be the way they are.
