11 Powerhouse Creative Women In Business You Should Be Following

"If we surround ourselves with people who are successful, who are forward-moving, who are positive, who are focused on producing results, who support us, it will challenge us to be more and do more and share more. if you can surround yourself with people who will never let you settle for less than you can be, you have the greatest gift that anyone can hope for."
Tony Robbins, Unlimited Power

One of the many blessings that social media has had on my life is the amazing women that I have had the honor to connect with and follow. Women who pride themselves in operating from a space of authenticity and integrity. I want to share these incredible women with you so you too can experience and grow from their stories, gifts and talents. 

Here are 11 of my favorite powerhouse creative women in business you should be following:

Melissa Bolton

Melissa Bolton is the owner and Editor in Chief of The Mogul Mom an online resource to support women in business. I met Melissa through a mutual Facebook connection and connected with her values and style immediately. I have been so honored to have her as a sounding board in my life and business. She is one of those hard to find people that always shoots me straight in a loving respectful way. You can connect with her through her incredible Power MOB Facebook community.

Melissa Camilleri

Melissa is the founder and creative director of Compliment®, a unique jewelry line that comes with the special gift of an uplifting compliment inside every box. Melissa is an English teacher turned full time entrepreneur using her love of words to inspire and empower others. She now runs Compliment® full time while working with and mentoring women to create success and abundance in their own businesses. I connected with Melissa through her Facebook group Business With Integrity. I immediately fell in love with the community she has created and her positive energy. Its one of my favorite groups to network in. She is also the co-creator of the Pay Attention Podcast.

Lee Lee Thompson


Lee Lee is the Managing Editor of The Perpetual You Magazine, a community to help women create ease, fun, wealth and joy in the their own lives and in the lives of others. The Perpetual You is one of my personal favorite resources to learn how to be a better mom, woman and business owner. I love the sisterhood and community that has been created for women. A true "connections and collaboration over competition" type environment. You can connect with Lee Lee by joining TPY Facebook group and connect with other like minded souls to form meaningful, intentional relationships.  

Christine Rose Elle

Christine is one of those beautiful spirits that as soon as you get connected with her you know that you have met a soul sister for life. She is a talented photographer and certified Beautiful You life coach and has been an amazing source of support for me in my own coaching journey. A connection I truly treasure. You can connect with Christine via her website  www.ChristineRoseElle.com and through her fun and creative Facebook group Heart Centered Coaching Community.

Rebecca Bradley

Rebecca is the Co-Founder of PinRight and my badass British connection "across the pond". When I got serious about wanting to learn how to use Pinterest to drive traffic to my blog I manifested the BEST in the business. Her Pinterest For Business training course completely transformed how I market my business and brand. I love Rebecca's style and consider her a great friend and business mentor. I know you will love her too. 

Amy Crane

Amy is the founder of Social Lab Marketing and one of those connections I would have never made if I had not been networking in Facebook groups. She is the Facebook Ad guru and I had the privilege of hopping on a Skype call with her to connect and learn more about her brand and business. I love her business ethics, she shares so many of the same values as I do. That business should be done from a soul centered space focusing on quality over quantity. If you are looking to learn and keep up with the constant changes of Facebook and Facebook Ads Amy is an invaluable resource. 

Marie Lexa

Marie is the founder of Women's Wellth. I connected with her on Instagram, stalked her website and immediately felt a connection with her passion and mission, "that women can have it all by designing a life that nourishes their body, soul and ambition". I mean who doesn't resonate with that right?! I reached out to her to see if I could contribute to her community via a guest blog post and she immediately responded and began working with me on content that would fit her vision and be valuable to her audience. I was also intrigued with this new concept of "wellth". It speaks directly to my core. I love following Marie and I know you will too. 

LaKay Cornell

I met LaKay via social media and have been so blessed to know this multi-passionate nomadic spirit. She is the founder of The Cornell Agency, a marketing firm working with creative entrepreneurs and brands. I love this picture of her because it represents the fun loving full of light person that she is. LaKay embodies everything that a Soulpreneur is with her passion to support, connect and collaborate with women business owners and empower them to nourish their ideal creative life. 

Lauren Hooker

When I launched my coaching business 2 years ago I knew that I did NOT want to deal with the Wordpress nightmare again like I had 6 years ago. After doing my due diligence I knew I wanted to use Squarespace for my website/blog which meant learning a whole new platform. At first it seemed like a daunting task but Lauren's brand Elle & Company was a God send for me in learning Squarespace and getting the most out of it for my business. I continue to stalk her blog on a regular basis, its one of my favorite resources. Lauren is an amazing business woman and someone that I admire in how I want to run my own brand. 

Alycia Wicker 

I connected with Alycia in a women's entrepreneur Facebook group during the early stages of launching my coaching business and immediately loved her no B.S. edginess. She coaches interior designers on how to market and stand out online. I am not even her target market but love being in her space and receiving her tell it like it is newsletters. I have learned a lot from her as a woman business owner and coach and 100% respect her authentic style. You can connect with her awesomeness at www.AlyciaWicker.com.

Ash Ambirge

A little over a year ago I got an email from a coaching client + friend that said "you have GOT to check this chick out!" and she forwarded to me a blog post from The Middle Finger Project. I dropped everything I was doing to sit down and read it. I mean with a name like that how can the curiosity not totally kill you?! From that first blog post I was totally hooked on her no sugar coating style. Ash gives the middle finger for a living {yes she really does} and is the CEO and Founder of this award-winning blog. An online platform created for women who want to ditch their traditional careers and build their own business online. Her style has always inspired me to be my true authentic self and be okay with not being everyone's cup of peach tea. Her energy inspires me to live life and my truth out loud. If you love raw, real conversations with a flare of hilarious, you will totally love her. 

I hope you enjoyed this list and hopefully will make some new connections that will help you grow your business and brand. Do you have an amazing creative woman in business, someone you have enjoyed connecting with? Leave me a comment and let me know who they are. Would love to know who inspires you. xo
