jordan jones

Founder & CEO, Packed Party

Packed Party, an online lifestyle gifting platform, started as a middle of the night vision in 2013 when Jordan was a frazzled twenty-something living alone in a tiny San Francisco apartment. Overwhelmed with her life situation, she called her mom to complain and received some tough love in response. Her mom told her that she was having a "pity party" and to just go to sleep. As she slept that night, she had a dream about sending herself a “pity party for one” package, which led to her leaping out of bed in the middle of the night and writing a business plan. These days, her successful company has products at Nordstrom and major brand partnerships with Rebecca Minkoff, Soap & Glory and Reese Witherspoon’s brand, Draper James. Jordan will share her story about what it’s like to be a twenty-something CEO, how she dodged doubt and how she leveraged social media to build Packed Party into the thriving brand that it is today.

Her appearance on Season 10 of Shark Tank catapulted Keisha and her idea forward. This summer, her product hits the shelves at many Walmart stores across the U.S. Keisha is barely getting started and has big, inspiring, creative plans for a food landscape powered by plants and good-for-you treats. From fashion to food to her background in human resources for the magazine industry, this is one inspiring entrepreneur you won’t want to miss. She has more hustle and heart in her pinkie than most humans. This is one session you won’t want to miss!
