From Olympic Gold To FemTech Founder with Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill

In this 40 Minute Mentor episode, we talk to one of Britain’s most decorated Olympians and Founder of FemTech Startup, Jennis, the incredible Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill

Jennis is a fitness app based on your unique hormonal cycle, and helps women gain a better understanding of their body, and ultimately become healthier and happier. 

In today’s episode, Jess shares some candid insights into the life of an Olympian, plus some excellent mentorship, including: 

➡️ How the challenges in her Junior athletics career have ultimately helped her become the successful athlete she is today.

➡️ What inspired her to start Jennis, how she found the pivot from athletics to the rollercoaster of entrepreneurship and her advice for anybody looking to transition careers. 

➡️ And we hear her first-hand experience of Super Saturday, and how it’s taught her the importance of surrounding yourself with the right people and trusting the process.
