After losing her childhood friend in 2010, Janeane belly flopped into a horrible funk. She turned to all sorts of outlets but realized that she needed to throw herself into something meaningful and inspiring. In 2011, she started hosting and producing a talk radio show called “Get the Funk Out!" on KUCI 88.9fm, where she had been a DJ since 2007. Janeane's guests shared stories and advice on how they overcame life’s funks - personal and professional, and what great things happened after they overcame a tough time. The show helped her heal and provided an outlet for others to share their stories and advice.
These meaningful conversations became the foundation for
"Get the Funk Out! %^&* Happens, What to Do Next!"
