About Jordana Jaffe

Jordanna Jaffe HSJordana Jaffe teaches women entrepreneurs who are introverts or homebodies how to create their own super engaged FB group so that they can grow their own online community and get clients without spending money and while staying at home in their cozy PJs. As a fellow introvert and homebody, Jordana totally understands how people can feel angsty and uncomfortable when it comes to offline networking and making small talk. Once she found a solution and an alternative, she felt inspired to teach everyone else who were interested how to do the same thing.
