#so608recycle: How A Bad Night, No Experience & Getting Fired Were Everything Packed Party’s Jordan Jones Needed To Succeed

 For a lesson in taking risks, going with your gut, standing by your vision and how to turn a very bad, no good bummer of a day into the biggest aha moment of your young life, pull out your earbuds and settle in for a conversation that will make you laugh – and get you inspired to do work on even the most challenging days.

In this episode of the Spirit of 608 podcast, twenty-something founder Jordan tells us how one of her earliest media moments (um, which I, cough, wrote) ended up getting her fired from her job – and why that turned out to be the best thing that could have happened (even though it hardly felt like that at the time). After starting her company in a tiny San Francisco apartment during a phase of her life when she felt lonely in a new town and frustrated with a blah job, Jordan has grown her lifestyle gifting brand into one that counts famous fans such as Reese Witherspoon and stockists that include Nordstrom, Paper Source and Neiman Marcus.

Meet this week’s guest, Jordan Jones, Founder of Packed Party.
