Jeanne Cole spent years climbing the corporate ladder of the entertainment industry, working with the likes of Michael Eisner and George Lucas.
Then, after a family tragedy, a friend suggested she take a holiday at a monastery, where she found renewal and made a giant leap of faith to start a most unlikely business.
Jeanne started Holy Orders, an online business where you can find unique, handmade products made at monasteries around the world. Products range from food items and soaps to lotions and linens. Most of the products come with a story card so buyers know where it came from.
