JJ Ramberg is the co-founder of Goodshop, host of the MSNBC program Your Business and author of the bestselling book It’s Your Business.
Now in its tenth season, Your Business is the only program on television dedicated to helping small business owners solve the issues they face every day. JJ has travelled across the country, interviewing thousands of small business owners, investors and advisors – as well as cabinet members and members of Congress -- to learn what works and what doesn’t.
JJ is a leader in the space of social entrepreneurship. Through its innovative online platform, her company Goodshop has forged a connection between retail savings and non-profit and school fundraising—by creating coupons that give back. Not only does it provide the best coupons and deals at thousands of stores including Target, Kohl’s, Old Navy, and Macy’s, but if you select a nonprofit or school to support, it donates a percentage of the purchase from many of these stores back to that organization. Launched in 2006, the Goodshop family of sites has raised nearly $12 million for its participating causes as well as saved people more than $100 million.
JJ has been honored for her work with Goodshop as well as with MSNBC by organizations including the American Women’s Business Association, Self Magazine, The Association of Women Entrepreneurs and Executives, Small Business Influencers and the New York Enterprise Report. In addition, as an entrepreneur herself as well as a journalist who covers small business, JJ is often called to speak to organizations including the Small Business Administration, National Women Business Owners Corporation, National Association of Women Business Owners, American Express CEO Bootcamp, and many others.
JJ holds her MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and currently lives in Brooklyn with her husband and three children.
