With experience as an entrepreneur, an artist, co-owner of several businesses with her husband and a CRAVE Los Angeles partner, Jan McCarthy has established herself as a trusted advisor for entrepreneurs in all stages of development. These three roles are only the tip of the iceberg for Jan, however, as her prowess in the business world extends to her work as a professor, television host, author, radio host, blogger, and featured speaker. Her mission is to support and empower entrepreneurs, by providing resources, community and inspiration.
Jan draws upon a family heritage of entrepreneurs and inventors, including a great-great grandmother who held the distinction of being the first woman doctor in the state of Georgia and valedictorian of her medical graduating class. Inspired by the fearlessness of her genealogy, Jan set foot on an entrepreneurial path at an early age. While still in her teens, she began building a career in real estate. She earned a marketing degree from the University of Colorado, and added to her business acumen through management positions in the corporate world and by developing several start-ups of her own.
Jan is married to an entrepreneur, and mother to two grown entrepreneurial daughters. She enjoys travel, reading, painting, writing, developing new projects, dining out, planning social activities for her building, volunteering, and spending time with her family and friends. Jan embraces a dual lifestyle, splitting her time between her loft in downtown L.A. and her ranch in Boulder, Colorado.
