S4 Episode 2: Going from cancer at 21 and a visa scam to growing a 7 figure business with Jade Cook



Our first guest episode of series 4 and my god what an exciting conversation it is! I had the pleasure of talking to Jade Cook, the founder of Brow Bible Academy. The last decade has pushed Jade to her limit, she was diagnosed with cancer at just the young age of 21 whilst moving from the UK to Australia and having no family support and then falling victim to a visa scam but she overcame it all to now have 6 years experience of running her 7 figure salon business, then moving on to launch her online education and coaching business Brow Bible as well as a product line whilst she lives in Dubai with her beautiful family.
