Dear Gluten-Free Readers,
Since March was Women’s History Month, we couldn’t help but mention our wonderful CEO, Jane Miller on our social media platforms! Even though we are in the midst of April, I wrote a brief follow-up to provide a more in-depth introduction of Jane and her website, JaneKnows.com.
Jane is an inspiration to all, especially young women who seek to excel in the business world. Aside from running a $100MM + food company in the very competitive organic and gluten-free food industries, Jane recently established JaneKnows.com to help young professionals build a career they love. By sharing the hard won insights from both her successes and her stumbles, janeknows.com is here to help us avoid the pitfalls and embrace the opportunities that lead to a satisfying career
As a young professional who graduated from college no more than 8 months ago, I am very lucky to be working under Jane’s wing. Jane is an incredibly upbeat, reassuring, energetic and fun-loving mentor with an excellent sense of professionalism.
“Jane Knows was born out of the idea that the business world can be difficult to navigate and the choices can seem insurmountable. To be blunt, it can really suck. Politics, unwritten rules, mean people—it is all out there. But that is just the external stuff. What happens when you do things to sabotage yourself? Self-sabotage happens a lot and many times you don’t even know you are doing it…until it is too late! So after thirty years in business, making lots of mistakes and then rebounding, I decided it was time to help the next generation of leaders avoid the School of Hard Knocks. Let’s face it: life throws obstacles at us all the time, shouldn’t there be a better way to overcome them based on someone else’s experience?”
