Janet Tanguay, Production Assistant

Janet Tanguay is returning to her roots by working at Surefooted Films. Her career began as an Associate Producer at Mountain View Productions, Schenectady, NY followed by hosting a radio talk show at the Hanover Inn near Dartmouth College. For that work, she was awarded the Golden Mic Award for Broadcast Journalism and a Graniteer Award for New Hampshire Broadcast Excellence. Those experiences prepared her for work in film at Northland Video Production in Lebanon, NH. As the years went by, she garnered 5 more awards (see her contact info below for more details).

Ms. Tanguay’s impressive experience in small business development started in 1993 when she founded her first company, Studio J, to assist companies in developing marketing strategies. From 2006-2017 she was founder and president of ‘Art-n-Soul’ working as a visual mixed media artist and creativity coach for over 150 artists. During the same years she served as Director of Entrepreneurship at the Capital Region Chamber of Commerce. Janet is now Entrepreneur in Residence at Hofstra University and serves as a Disaster Recovery Business Specialist during the COVID epidemic. This busy, talented gal is also owner of The Hammock Way of Life-encouraging people to launch their dream business. She has guided over a thousand entrepreneurs.

There’s more! She saw a need to create a funding source for friends, family, colleagues, philanthropists and investors to support new businesses in this area. Visit www.bizideashower.com.

Last of all, EMU (Entrepreneur Meet Up) is her way of helping solo entrepreneurs stay connected. Facebook: EMU.
