Lakesider Spotlight: Jessica Bettencourt
Elizabeth Fantozzi
Marketing & Public Relations Manager

When it comes to facing rejection, second guessing big decisions and overcoming self-doubt, Lakesider and author Jessica Bettencourt shares in her new book I Almost Cancelled-Showing Up When Fear Tells You To Stay Home,” how to overcome fear to build the life you’ve always imagined.

“We were invited to visit a friend who lived in Lakeside and within hours we fell in love,” said Bettencourt. “My husband and I had a moment when we just looked at each other and knew this community is exactly what we had been looking for. We soon purchased a cottage and have never looked back.” Click here to read more.
