How did a sophisticated, urban, well-traveled native New York fashion executive wind up living in a charming western town smaller than her Upper West Side neighborhood in Manhattan?
My husband convinced me that we had done everything possible in New York and it was time to relocate to a smaller, quieter, stress-free town, close to nature and California (where his family lived).

Janis Best – “What About Today?”
Since Janis passed on June 4, many women have told me how much she meant to them in terms of advice and wisdom, that their encounters with Janis set their lives on different courses. So on July 22 I will offer our home to those who wish to share their special relationship with Janis.
It’s my hope that those who attend will share Facebook, email, etc., and keep alive the attitude that only Janis possessed — no excuses, let’s do it now, today.
Once we have an idea of how many want to attend we’ll set the timing and confirm the location for July 22. For now we’ll plan on here, at 325 West Gurley in downtown Prescott.
It seems to me that Janis had singular, emotional relationships with almost everyone. She said or did things that made that friend feel special, unique, and thought about.
Speaking at the funeral with those that knew Janis, we all agreed that Janis was a mensch.
She attracted those seeking wisdom and advice, and we all know she had strong opinions. She was open and honest with everyone she met.
In talking with these women I’ve discovered how often their relationships with Janis helped them uncover their own strengths, giving many ever-growing confidence, making them feel better about themselves and able to see a new person in the mirror.
Since her death I’ve talked with more women than I could have imagined who feel this way.
So please leave your name and message, and come back to this site from time to time as we post updates on the event.
Thank you for thinking of Janis.
