Janet Tanguay, Dream Synergist

Throughout her career, Janet has helped over 1000 entrepreneurs in launching their dream businesses, and has guided hundreds of people toward living the life of their dreams through her Vision Board Workshops. 

"Part of my dream is to spend more time in a hammock – reading, writing, coaching, hanging with friends and entrepreneurs possibly on a tropical island or an interesting back yard, still serving others passionately and living on my own terms. The Hammock Way of Life, LLC embodies this vision that I hold, and represents whatever your vision is for your ideal future, too."

Janet's first business, Studio J, opened in 1993 to assist companies in developing marketing strategies for growth and development.  As the founder of Art n Soul, Inc. from 2006 – 2017,  she represented over 150 artists, coaching and teaching them the business of art.  Janet is also a mixed media artist; author of two children’s books, Be Bee and Dustbunnies Don’t Eat Carrots; and a former featured writer on the Times Union Blog on micro businesses called Startup and Grow and on Womeninbiz.com.  Her art work has been included in exhibits locally and nationally.   Janet has appeared on the television shows The Hip Entrepreneur, The Growth Mindset, Inspiring Wellness Solutions, and Schenectady Today.  Most recently, in print, she has been featured on the cover of Women@Work Magazine in the 2018 Business Finance issue.  Janet has also received the 50 Over 50 Making a Difference honor from Channel 10 (WTEN), the Fierce Advocate of Entrepreneurs Award from SheSpeaks2Me.com, and is a five time winner of the NYS Award of Excellence for Program Performance, Achievement and Dedication to the Entrepreneurs of New York State.
