  1. Hi Amy,

    I was listening with interest on this podcast. Like Jessica, I am also working in a family-controlled business in manufacturing of metal products. Like Jessica, I am the eldest child – also all sisters but four of us instead of 3. However, I am working with my cousins instead of my sisters in the business. Listening to Jessica, it somehow got me thinking maybe it is nice to start something with my sisters. Also, Jessica’s family business Best upon Request of concierge services, is really the kind of service that can really make a difference to people’s lives, giving a helping hand to others, helping relieve stress and burdens on employees, and yet it is a business. Very inspiring! Really thought it is a very good business idea and business model.

    • Joanna,

      Thanks for your comments. I’m glad the podcast inspired you! Jessica and her family ARE inspiring, and their business is growing. You’re right-it does serve a very important need. Let me know what happens with you and your sisters!

      All the best,
