get to know the girls

amanda hall



Amanda Hall started her entrepreneurial journey 14 years ago running a boutique modeling agency in NYC. After starting her family, she always found ways to reinvent herself and earn an income. Currently, Amanda runs a multi million dollar skincare franchise, is raising three super cute kids, and lives and works in Bergen County, NJ. When she’s not networking (that’s never), running a virtual empire, or bouncing ideas off of her "sounding board" husband, Adam, Amanda can be found practicing yoga, crushing it at the gym, sharing her passion for giving back by being a "connector", and teaching other women how to network their way to the top to elevate their lives both personally + professionally.

Amanda’s go to cocktail is Tito’s + soda.
& yes, just like Tito’s, everyone loves her!

lisa friesel



Lisa had a 13 year career in advertising in NYC and in 2012 she jumped at the opportunity to be an entrepreneur owning a virtual skincare franchise. With no background in skincare she now runs a multi-million dollar business and has truly changed the trajectory of her life. Lisa lives in Long Island, has 2 children (Jack and Olivia). After Lisa left her career in NYC, she quickly learned that networking would be the key to continued growth and that is exactly when her love of meaningful connections started. Lisa enjoys meeting new people and loves fashion and living a healthy lifestyle.

Lisa always prefers tequila over champagne.

stephanie paradiso


director of business development

Stephanie has always been an entrepreneur. At the age of 22 she opened her first venture, a high end special event wear women’s boutique in Long Island, where she was born and raised; in 2013 Steph started a mobile bridal makeup service as a compliment to her special event store. She currently runs an Internet-based skincare franchise and coaches men and women on how to become business owners. When Stephanie isn’t working she loves spending time with her husband, adoring her 2 year old daughter and traveling.

Steph is always game for an espresso; & make it a double.

jaclyn dejesus


director of marketing

Jaclyn lives, works, and spends most of her time in New York. She runs a boutique digital marketing agency, travels often, and works remotely one hundred percent of the time. With a strong interest in various industries like real estate, fashion, digital everything, and technology, Jaclyn has always been, and might always be, an entrepreneur. After years in a junior creative role, transitioning to running her own business offers the perfect opportunity for Jac to share the unique set of challenges young women face while working for themselves. After years of practice (and feeling out of place) at networking events, Jaclyn and her career are proof that getting to the next level in life, truly is all about who you know.

You might see Jaclyn sipping a hot coffee.
Or is there a mimosa in that mug?
