Corey Phelps (@coreyphelps_)
Corey Phelps is a lifelong athlete with a great passion for fitness and health. When she became a mother, she was diagnosed with hypothyroidism shortly after, and she experienced a severe case of burnout. At that moment, she realized she despised her career and decided she was meant for a lot more than a job that made her feel miserable. Corey is no stranger to the lows in life, but what she learned from her experience is invaluable.
She learned not to accept unhappiness, weight gain, and lack of energy as a given in life. She wanted the exact opposite, so she decided to do something about it. Soon, she learned new techniques and remedies for healing and improving physical vibrancy. Corey has been on an educational journey for the last 10 years and she has learned so much about building businesses, community, empowerment, and self-love, she decided to help others find their power as well.
Her mission is to help people discover their inner strength and unlock their ability to create abundance, happiness, and freedom. She has helped many health and wellness based businesses reach their 6 figures and beyond with simple strategies that work. Corey made a million-dollar business out of her services in only 18 months, proving that focus on mindset and confidence can lead people to great success.
Tara-Jay Rimmer (@resting_boss_face)
Tara-Jay Rimmer is an entrepreneur, business mentor to fellow female entrepreneurs, digital course creator, and keynote speaker on female entrepreneurship. For women who are trying to succeed as entrepreneurs, it’s not easy to find female mentors who can truly understand their struggles. Tara-Jay is here to fill in that gap and share her knowledge so women entrepreneurs can feel supported and reach their goals.
Like many other female entrepreneurs, Tara-Jay didn’t grow up wealthy and she didn’t always have the confidence she has today. She felt trapped in a corporate job and had a scarcity mindset that made her feel poor and suffocated no matter what she did. But one day she realized that she was imposing those limits on herself and she decided to make a change.
Once she shed her self-imposed limitations, she was able to rise. She quit her soul-sucking job and founded Resting Boss Face, an 8-figure business with the mission of helping female entrepreneurs bring their visions to life. Her online course, Business From Scratch, is also very successful and it arms people with the knowledge they need to start a profitable business. Tara-Jay uses her 10 years of hands-on, real-life experience, and what she learned from working in a top-tier accounting firm to assist clients from both perspectives and help them elevate their business.

Her company, PELLÉ + CO, offers fractional CMO services that provide SMBs with the strategy they need to grow.

Aimee Browne (@iamaimeebrowne)
Aimee Browne has become the lifesaver of female entrepreneurs when it comes to creating and executing intentional growth strategies. She is a successful time strategist that makes use of savvy systems and structure to help her clients optimize their business operations to make a greater impact and generate more income by leveraging their time, which is the most valuable asset.
She offers one-on-one mentorships, group programs, and masterclasses through which she helps women understand how to avoid burnout, work smarter, not harder, and pave their way into becoming CEOs. Aimee knows what it’s like to fall victim to burnout. After all, her career began as an Executive Assistant to directors and CEOs of some of the largest high-street retailers in the UK. Her job was demanding, to say the least, and she pushed herself to the limit because she demanded nothing but perfection from herself.
Her severe burnout led to one of the darkest times in her life, leading to anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and OCD. However, it was at rock bottom that she gained the perspective she needed to start prioritizing her own fulfilment and freedom. Today, she helps other women do the same with over 15 years of experience in time management, performance habits, and business operations.
Sophie Thorne (@mrssophiethorne)
Sophie Thorne is a serial entrepreneur and business strategist whose mission is to help women go from “solopreneur” to CEO. Sophie recognizes that scaling a business is no easy feat, which is why she has made it her business to work with female entrepreneurs who want to streamline their strategy, create more scalable systems, and develop the mindset of a CEO.
Sophie worked in corporate for 8 years and she gained a ton of perspective, knowledge, and experience during that time. When it was time to break out on her own, she set up, scaled, and subsequently left a successful e-commerce business. In the process, she learned what works, but most importantly, what doesn’t work when it comes to launching and scaling a business. Armed with this newfound knowledge, she went on to build her current business as a business strategist supporting other women to do the same.
This multiple 6-figure, service-based business has led Sophie to support other 6 and 7-figure entrepreneurs and help them scale their business without having to be chained to their laptops. Her training as a strategy consultant and her own personal experience in business enables her to teach and support other women on their journey to CEO. It’s Sophie’s strong belief that women don’t have to sacrifice their lives to have a successful business and achieve their goals; she’s here to help them find balance because it is indeed possible.
