Hi! I’m Janet.
A few things about me…
I’m the founder of Cube Riot. We’re an apparel brand for the modern career woman and we’re working on our first product, blazers.
Starting a company is the funnest and hardest thing I’ve ever done. This experience has far exceeded my expectations in terms of learning and personal growth. I’m so grateful to be doing this!

While getting Cube Riot going, I’m doing marketing consulting.
I’m a full-stack marketer who likes to get things done and gets along with sales people, engineers, interns, and even founders and VCs.
After working for startups for six years and starting my own, I’ve seen a lot, and I’m always excited to share that with others.
I’m currently taking on new clients. So if you need help getting people psyched about your products, we should talk. Email me at email@example.com.
This blog goes back to 2008, my senior year of college. It follows my time trying to get a PR job during a recession, moving to Boston, getting into the startup thing, and now going off on my own.
If you’re ever bored on the T or need some reading material between flights, here are a few of the posts from over the years I’m proud of for various reasons:
- Waving the Flag [Part 1]
- What Should Women in Startups Wear to Work?
- 4 Lessons From a Year of Marketing Consulting for Startups
- When It Comes to Startup Metrics, Focus on Big Rocks
- Advice for the Class of 2014: Accept That There is No Path
- How I Got My First Job in Boston
I do interviews from time to time about startups and marketing. Here are a few recent ones you can check out:
Me, The Person
I live in Boston in the North End. I grew up in Orchard Park, N.Y., which is outside of Buffalo. Lake effect snow is even worse than Boston winters, if you can imagine!
The rollercoaster of startups has made me even closer to my friends and family. It’s helped me see the of value those relationships that much more. So above all else, simply spending time with them is my favorite thing in the world.
I love connecting with new people and strongly prefer one-on-one conversations to startup events. (And if you ever see me at one of those things, please dear GOD say hi first. I’m shy.) I especially like to be helpful to college students and other startups if I can be. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime! Here to help.
