In our latest episode of Giant Builders, we bring you the incredible saga of Jan BR, a living testament to resilience and tenacity. Jan's journey began eight and a half years ago when a hemorrhagic stroke abruptly halted her bustling life as a farmer and devoted teacher. Yet, instead of succumbing to the challenges, Jan soared above them, defying expectations and redefining her path.

This episode unfolds the layers of Jan's enduring spirit, highlighting her unwavering impact on the students she taught. Despite the physical, emotional, and financial hurdles of caring for aging parents, Jan's story is a beacon of hope and a testament to the power of early conversations. As she shares her wisdom on caregiving, family talks, and the intricate dance of running "Mom and Dad Inc.," listeners are invited to explore the complexities of this deeply personal journey.

But that's not all—Jan goes beyond the realms of the ordinary. She introduces us to a world where dragons play a vital role in guiding individuals through the tapestry of spirituality, family, health, and business. Her dragon-filled books, designed to educate and inspire children, unveil a unique approach to learning about states and countries, making education an adventurous and interactive experience.

Join us as we celebrate Jan's triumphs, share her invaluable insights, and witness the birth of a dragon-infused universe that promises to captivate hearts. This episode is not just a story; it's a tribute to the indomitable human spirit and the giants among us, like Jan BR, who build a legacy of strength, inspiration, and resilience.
