Jane Jenkins Herlong is an author, a speaker, a humorist, and a singer. She appears on Blue Collar Radio, and she travels the country speaking to various organizations. The former Miss America contestant faces life with a smile and a laugh, but her life hasn't always been a walk in the park. Growing up in a family riddled with alcohol and abuse – as well as a personal battle with dyslexia, Jane knows what it is to struggle, but it is the way she faced it that made her who she is today. As she says, she found the funny in dysfunctional.
This week Jane returned to “The Means Report” set to talk about the “pearls” of wisdom she's acquired over the years. They're broken down in a fun, light hearted way in her upcoming book “Bury Me With My Pearls.”
