The Story Of The Girl That Started Steals.com  

Today's interview is with Jana Francis. When Jana Francis walks in the door, heads turn. This 5'2" spunky dynamo is a triple threat. She's raising three kids, running a multi-million-dollar startup company, and charming everyone she meets - from finicky new mommies to the most brilliant of engineers at Google. Jana has a hard working, tough-as-nails attitude, coupled with a down-to-earth honesty and charisma. Before founding Steal Network, Jana spent her career specializing in advertising and marketing for technology and internet companies in Silicon Valley, California, and for KSL, the largest media company in Utah. Jana's motivation to start her own company came on her drive back to her corporate job after maternity leave with her latest baby. Her love of online deal hunting (her friends called her the "dotcom princess") and her quest for finding the most sought-after baby products at steep discounts were the catalysts for a new kind of website. Only having $5,000 in savings, a burning ambition to succeed and 18 months of planning, she partnered with Rett Clevenger and created Steal Network. In April of 2008, with her seven plus years of broadcast media experience and Rett's e-commerce experience they launched BabySteals.com, the first website in the Steal Network family. Six months later she left her 12-year career in the corporate world for good. Jana has partnered with some brands to create customized offerings just for Steals.com customers. The Jana Bag by The Bumble Collection is the best selling diaper bag that BabySteals.com has sold, and Pretty Fierce, a workout DVD filmed with Lindsay Brin of Moms Into Fitness the most popular fitness program that they have sold.
