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.
