Welcome to Divorced Girl Smiling!

Mark Cuban

Mark Cuban, billionaire, entrepreneur and Shark Tank shark is now an investor in Divorced Girl Smiling. Mark is happily married, but understands and shares Divorced Girl Smiling's passion to empower and inspire people facing divorce. How did this come about? I've known Mark my whole life. Our families are dear friends. If you ask anyone who knows me, they'll tell you that 10 years ago when I started Divorced Girl Smiling, I would tell people, "My goal is to have Mark Cuban as an investor in this company one day." After a lot of hard work to make this happen, I am thrilled that day is here! - Jackie Pilossoph, Founder, Divorced Girl Smiling
