Jessica on her inspiration for founding The Honest Company... "That's what really inspired me to start Honest. I had so many health issues, and come hell or high water, my kids were going to be as healthy as possible. My life was tough as a kid. I was so lonely. And I felt really disconnected from my friends because I spent so much time in the hospital with grown-ups, and felt like a weirdo. It's a strange way to spend your time as a kid.
