Imperfect Courage: Live a Life of Purpose by Leaving Comfort and Going Scared Reviews
Jessica Honegger writes a wonderful book of life ups and downs in the journey to Imperfect Courage through Noonday, her fair trade business. Honegger shares the passion of adoption and how it led her to begin a business that helps others reach that same goal. Imperfect Courage is so much more than a book of business and adoption. It is a raw look at going scared in life but the key word being GOING. The honesty of looking at others as equals, believing in the gifts we have been given and steppin ...more
If you've ever felt like a middle school student, tightly gripping your lunch tray as you anxiously scan the room for a place to sit, then Jessica Honegger's words will resonate with you. While reading this advance copy of the book (given by publisher), I kept finding myself whispering "me too". Jessica emphatically assures us that there is a seat at the table for us and more importantly encourages us to scoot over and make room for others, something she calls the Sisterhood Effect.

I received an ARC from the publisher, and the opinions expressed are my own.
“Imperfect Courage” is a memoir written by Jessica Honegger, the founder of Noonday Ambassadors. The book loosely traces the story of the adoption of her son from Rwanda, and chronicles the development of her fair-trade jewelry company, which originated to address the substantial fees and expenses related to that adoption.
I was smitten when I read this epigraph:
“‘The path to success is straight, and the experience of wal ...more
I thought this book would be all about Jessica's business journey. I am not a business owner, but I am a fan of Noonday and thought it would be fun to be on the book launch team and receive an advanced reading copy.
I was captivated by the first page, and pleasantly surprised to find that this book is about so, so, so much more than business! Jessica lets us into her inner thoughts and takes us on a journey about how to conquer those pesky committes in our brain that keep telling us how we are fa ...more
