Video interview with Janice Taylor, Founder JustBeFriends Network.  I talked with Janice about her move to the Bay area with her startup, some of the challenges that Canadian startups face & where are the women in Canadian startups.

After growing up to be a single mom and facing the challenges of difficult circumstances, Janice has turned her life experiences and education into a winning combination. After a successful 10 year Pharmaceutical Sales Background, building a successful real estate investment portfolio, she is now pioneering the world of social “networks” with her creation of Just Be Friends Network Inc an interactive web platform to engage parents and kids in healthy friendship development, where kids under 11 can find, be and make new friends. Two short months after launching Just Be Friends, Janice was chosen as one of Oprah’s Ultimate Viewers of all time, receiving the trip of lifetime to Australia with Oprah. As a mother of 2 little girls, Janice feels a personal obligation to be the change you wish to see in the world.  The mission of Just Be Friends, is to support women and now kids Find a Friend. Be a Friend, a solution to the growing epidemic of cyber bullying. Janice is a fairly new entrepreneur but equally committed to creating social change and providing inspiration to people who want to take that first step. Just Be Friends, Find a Friend. Be a Friend – Changing Lives, One Friend at a time.  You can connect with Janice on Twitter @justbefriends
