The Pitch: Janylle Radden sells the ultimate bachelorette experience helps empower women through articles and discussion related to women's issues including beauty, relationships and parenting.


Ball Before the Chain is your favorite new way to plan bachelorette parties

Did Janylle Radden sell you in her 60 seconds? Soon-to-be-married entrepreneur Radden desperately wants to breathe new life into the traditional bachelorette/bachelor parties. (I mean, how many times can one go to Vegas?)

Name: Janylle Radden

What you’re pitching: Ball Before the Chain — a bespoke planning service focused on bachelor and bachelorette party outings. The company exists in order to remove the stress from planning and hosting a multiplayer excursion and allow each participant to enjoy the moment.

Position: Founder, Ball Before the Chain

Hails from: Got my roots and my wings growing up in Phoenix. Tested my wings and learned I could fly in Miami and now establishing a new set of roots, creating a household with the fiancé in NYC.

Birthday: I've got nothin' to hide, plus my golden birthday is coming up! July 31, 1984.

Personal life: Engaged to be married — hence the business idea :)

Priors: I've spent most of my career in hospitality. I've run F&B departments at luxury hotels and owned my own personal concierge and lifestyle management business prior to this.

Pitch inspired by: My own experiences and those of my friends who were/are getting married.

Mentor(s)/people who inspire: My grandmother was a big inspiration to me. She believed in living her life how she wanted to and didn't let anything stop her. Another person I'm recently inspired by is Jessica Alba. I love that she went from playing the pretty girl who didn't need to say much to being a force to be reckoned with in business — especially in an industry where people love to look for flaws. She has done well to maintain the integrity of her product lines and created a billion-dollar business in the process.

Words to live by: 1) "Go big or go home," and  2) "Thank you"

I feel that including #2 in day-to-day vocabulary as often as possible can change the world.

Last read/watched/listened: Watched: Game of Thrones (and I'm still recovering); Listened: most likely Stevie Wonder — he's always welcome on any playlist of mine. I can't clean the house without him! Read: What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

Expert in: Sarcastic comments, exclusive experiences, being a therapist to my friends

Social: InstagramFacebook and the occasional blog post on Ball Before the Chain

Guilty pleasure: Dance Moms (ahhh, I'm so embarrassed, but I do love that show).

How you recharge: I get some sunlight. I have always been invigorated and revitalized by the sun, so even just stepping outside for a bit is helpful.

Tops on your travel wish list: Amalfi Coast, South Africa and... Atlantic City (even though none of my friends want to go with me)!

Favorite exercise: Yoga or spin

Favorite products: Ben & Jerry's Strawberry Cheesecake :-), Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche perfume, Neutrogena Oil-Free moisturizer with SPF 15 and CHI Silk Infusion
