Jan Ayan is a natural-born nurturer of businesses, clients and family. For over 30 years, she has developed several companies with her business partner and husband, Jordan. Together, they have grown businesses from startup to growth to exit, culminating in their current venture, The Lifestyle Collection, along with their daughter, Ashley.
Jan began her career in accounting before joining Jordan in their first company, Create-It!. She had an attention to detail, financial expertise and keen instincts. They helped to balance Jordan’s big- picture thinking and creativity. Jan’s involvement helped grow Create-It! into a profitable company, all while still managing the business of running their growing family at home.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Jan and Jordan’s partnership continued to progress. They were Internet pioneers, leading the team that built lighting.com, one of the earliest online business communities. They also founded SubscriberMail, one of the first permission based email marketing companies. After growing and selling SubscriberMail, they moved to Arizona in 2010. They started Take Two Partners, to share their knowledge and mentor emerging entrepreneurs.
From their experiences, Jordan and Jan discovered they could apply their marketing and business acumen to one of their passions; real estate. They bought and sold, as well as renovated several personal luxury properties with success. They realized there was a void in the market place. Jordan and Jan developed The Lifestyle Collection, to fill this need and offer a way for real estate to be reimagined. Jan’s talent for understanding clients and their properties provided the opportunity to build their own staging and property styling company to serve their real estate clients and allow her creative instincts to thrive and her business acumen to shine.
