About the Founder: 

  I’m Janet Kynard, the founder/president of It Happens in Alabama, and a resident of Titus, Alabama. Having been born in Bamburg, S.C., I lived most of my life in the Atlanta, Ga. area, where I owned several businesses and was an International Stockbroker and Investment Banker. I moved permanently to the River Region in 2003, after having enjoyed my short stay in Montgomery in 2000-2001.

I launched It Happens in Alabama in January of 2012, as a reminder to me that life is not all about work and it takes as much planning of free time as it does for work time. It is the memory of fun experiences that you take with you for the rest of your life. 

I have received numerous awards for my Social Media and Marketing,(Worldwide ‘Who’s Who” of Founders and Presidents, Worldwide “Who’s Who” Executive of the Year in Marketing and Promotions, Worldwide “Who’s Who Lifetime Member) my leadership in helping others build their business, (International Women’s Leadership Association Award for Leadership)  and have held the position of  Marketing Chairperson and Mentor with Alabama Capital SCORE  where I mentored small businesses in the River Region on Marketing, social media, advertising and promotion. 

Please feel free to contact me, with your questions or needs.
