In the latest episode of Resilience with Entrepreneur Network partner Alley, Dressmate founder Jennifer Simons talks about finding herself at a crossroads. Her co-founder from college was off to a job, her company bank account was running low and people were telling her to simply move on and find a corporate job. Even some of the developers for the original Dressmate app recommended she go find a job with the $10,000 left in her account. 

Saltzman and Simons discuss the rebound, and Simons talks about restless nights, finding consolation in friends and pets while looking at job postings.
