Joni wanted to prove them wrong. Janie just didn’t care what others thought. Longtime friends share how they’ve built their lives and livelihoods as micro-entrepreneurs.

Janie Hartwig Smith says she’ll just be the comic relief…belying the fact that she is a remote worker pioneer (she started 20 years before the pandemic!) entrepreneur, President of J-2 Creative, mom and champion hockey player.

More about Joni Swedlund
After a 26 year career in global management consulting in the financial services industry, 18 as a partner, it was time to take a bold step in closing the leadership gap. Joni created the Inner Rock Group to inspire and empower women and girls to step into their leadership. To reach further and be the biggest expression of herself. To bring more balance and diversity of thought into the board rooms, the C-Suite, the critical positions, global discussions, and government decisions. Women need to be at the table and in the important conversations. Even if they were told otherwise. Even if it scares us a little. We just need to find our stride. We just need to know that others have our back. We do not need to get there alone.
