Jessica Ward is a writer and small business owner in the Seattle area. She spends her time with her two children and she volunteers for adoption-related causes. She wishes her old boss—whose name really is John—all the best in business, but is glad to have this opportunity to move on. She wouldn't have done it otherwise. You can read her living laid-off blog at www.pennywisefamily.blogspot.com or see her freelance work at www.jessicaward.me.
