 “Why did you start your business?”

This is one of the most common questions people will ask you, so it’s important to have a compelling answer. I’ll share my story, which I hope will inspire you to get ideas about how to share yours.


PHB Int’l began because I (Jōs) was so done selling Girl Scout cookies in the Chicago cold. Have you ever tried door-to-door selling as a kid?

As much as I loved Girl Scouts, going on trips, and being top cookie seller for 10 years in a row, what I did not love was ringing doorbells – when my fingers were so cold I couldn’t feel them.

I kept thinking: “There had to be a better way to help the girls of today – and women of tomorrow — better leverage their time to make money and make a difference.” How could women work smarter, not harder?

I made it my life’s work to figure it out.


Today, our PHB Int’l Members “work smarter” by having supportive, purpose-driven Women Entrepreneurs come together to master The 12 Principles to Promote Her Business,  to authentically share their story through virtual networking, and so much more!
