|Who We Are|
While it’s my name on this website, I am by no means a solo act.
From redefining your revenue structure to leveraging your expertise for recurring revenues – we are here to guide you in playing a bigger game in business without “selling out” or “sacrificing” fulfillment and balance.
Because the act of “partnering up” to build your business is an important and personal decision, it’s important that you understand where I come from.
So here are a few of the beliefs I hold regarding my work with individuals like you…
There you have it – a peek at my view of business after 23 years. It’s a kinder, more enlightened view of what business is really all about and I’m seeking clients and collaborators who share these beliefs.
Sure, over these 23 years I’ve taken two of my own businesses well past the million-mark, authored two books, spoken around the world and helped thousands of entrepreneurs turn their passions into profits. But the true gifts have come from the people I’ve had the privilege of working with along the way. It’s these people who have shaped me and brought me here… crystal clear about how I want to move in the world.
If what I’ve shared resonates with you, I invite you to become a part of a community of big-thinking entrepreneurs. Fill in the fields on the left column and within minutes, I’ll send you one of my favorite bonus gifts and keep you in the loop on upcoming events and programs.
Understanding that some of you want more of the details, I offer the following recap of how I happen to arrive right here.
In 1987 I founded my first business with my husband, Mario. During my time as CEO we turned our $5,000 into a multi-million dollar company that positively impacted the lives of thousands of women through the life-changing influence of owning their own business. After 12 exciting years of growing the business Mario and I decided to sell it to two trusted friends who would build upon the foundation we had established. Still today, the company thrives and prospers.
Schooling – formal and not so formal
While I’d like to say that my initial business success was due to my Masters in International Business and Bachelors in East Asian Studies that would not be the whole story.
During the two years after selling my first business I played, invested time and money in growing myself personally and professionally and put my focus on being a mom to my son Alex. I also found time to work with a number of start-ups – taking one of them to the half million mark in less than 6 months. All the while my passion remained consistent - supporting women entrepreneurs to grow their profits while enhancing the quality of their life. It was a fun and rewarding time and I emerged wiser and ready to take my work to the next level.
Stepping Out Into the World
Soon, the opportunity arose to joined forces with a friend, Nicki Keohohou and her daughter Grace. We forged our talents, commitment and $18,000 and in just five years created a 1.2 million company called The Direct Selling Women’s Alliance. Today it serves direct selling professionals in more than 20 countries and has an on-line community of thought leaders that are shifting the profession.
During my six years as President of the DSWA I developed a number of cutting edge training programs, including the ELITE Leadership Certification Course which received international acclaim for it’s innovative edge.
In an effort to impact the profession on an even broader scale, Jane lead a team in authoring two bestselling books Build It Big and More Build It Big. Her marketing campaigns took both books to #1 in the Sales and Marketing and Business on Amazon.com and Barns&Noble.com. Since then, more than 50,000 copies have been sold and the books have been translated into six languages.
Following My Heart
In 2008 I moved on to work independently with thousands of small business owners as a coach, speaker and business strategist under the umbrella of my consulting company, Profit Partners. With the help of my talented husband Mario, we launched a web design firm, Interweb Productions and a virtual training platform, the Virtual Training Academy. Through these companies we support remarkable thought leaders in business to bring their life-changing message on line. Combine that with the consulting and coaching under my own brand and you have a powerful team of professionals committed to your success. Whether speaking on stage, delivering a virtual course or coaching one-on-one, I’ve been blessed to support forward-thinking entrepreneurs around the world who are impacting change on a daily basis.
Partners In Life and in Business
My husband Mario and I have been building business together since 1987. I bring the marketing and strategy and he makes it all come to life through technology.
When appropriate, we connect clients with Mario’s company, Interweb Productions. He and his technical team comprised of talented programmers that span the globe, offer the highest level programming and a deep sense of commitment and service. What clients love most, besides the impressive end product is Mario’s never-ending patience when it comes to the intricacies of taking your business online.
