Liv Conlon inspiring female entrepreneur

Who is she?
Liv Conlon

What's her story?
Not many people can say they’ve started two successful businesses from scratch, built a £1 million brand in their teens, traveled the world speaking internationally and won 10 national and international business and entrepreneur awards. And even fewer people can say they’ve done all that before they were 21-years-old.

Liv Conlon, whose many accolades include The UK Young Entrepreneur of the Year, is a tenacious and inspiring female entrepreneur who left school age 16 to start her first business, ThePropertyStagers. At 19 she built a £1 million brand from scratch in an industry that didn’t exist, beating the odds and turning her vision into a profitable reality. Liv now uses her own success and experience to help other entrepreneurs. She helps them create a profitable personal brand through her ‘Personal Brand Accelerator’, a platform that supports entrepreneurs going from unknown to industry leaders with an internationally recognizable business and brand.

Nadine Rohner

What's her story?
In 2015 Nadine was sitting in her office working a corporate job, feeling completely stale and stuck in life. She had two options, to stay miserable or to take a risk and change everything. Nadine followed her inner voice, quit her job, sold all her stuff, and moved to Bali to start her own social media business. That's where she decided there was absolutely no way she was ever going back to a 9-5 job.

With her coaching program, digital courses and free online training, Nadine now helps women successfully work and financially thrive as social media managers who have the freedom to travel the world. After working with clients for years, it’s now her mission and passion to help women across the world to step out of their daily 9-5, expand their beliefs and unleash their true potential.

Nadine's business, The Social Shells, has enabled hundreds of women to create their own
independent laptop lifestyle. It's helped women become successful freelance social media managers so they can work from anywhere around the world and bask in the bliss of entrepreneurial freedom.

What's her story?
Karen Peña is the Founder and CEO of Organic Guidance, a health and wellness company that's on track to completely revolutionize the cannabis industry.

She recognized the disconnect between how critical cannabis products have been in her healing process and how wildly unregulated the industry is.

Karen mobilized and took her experience — as a BioMolecular and Quality Engineer who's previously worked for various Fortune 500 Biotechnology and cannabis companies — to build a business that helps patients find highest-quality medicinal products.

This inspiring female entrepreneur has a vision to provide cannabis and hemp products of uncompromising quality that meet the lifestyle needs of modern-day health-conscious humans. Karen is on an unstoppable mission to help millions go from stressed and anxious to relieved and focused with cannabis, hemp and CBD.

Hilery Johnson

What's her story?
Hilery is the founder and CEO of BringInBaby, a trailblazing company that shows women how to holistically increase their chances of pregnancy, energetically prepare for their baby’s arrival and increase intuition and innate power of being a new mom.

Hilery created BringInBaby after she found herself craving a child and a family in addition to her already successful creative career. As a long-time spiritual seeker and healer, she integrated powerful spiritual tools to raise her vibration to bring her baby in. Now that her then-baby-son is now a teen, she has some breathing room and wants to share her wisdom with women ready to call in their baby.

From calling in and connecting with baby, to preparing for birth, Hilery's hope is to help the journey to motherhood smoother and easier so women can have the space to become the happy, empowered, intuitive mom they deserve to be.

Recently, she launched a brand new business @embraceyourvibrationnow which provides an energetic boost to assist you in more clearly hearing your own inner wisdom and your own intuition by disconnecting from the noise and fear in the world at this time.
