Jen Gotch walked in for this episode wearing the most beautiful, colorful, happy dress: exactly what you’d expect from the creator of ban.do, an inspiring + positive lifestyle brand that’s grown tremendously since it began as a one-of-a-kind hair accessories company.

Jen is very transparent about how she is feeling on her good days and her bad days (which you know if you follow her on Instagram @jengotch). Jen is open about the mental health struggles she’s dealt with throughout her life, and she has been diligently learning to get closer to who she really is and care for herself – all the while building this incredible brand.
