Hey! I'm Emily Eley.
I'm a facilitator, speaker, anti-capitalist business advisor, caregiver, and soon to be carpenter.
My mission is to support womxn-owned businesses, BIPOC-owned businesses, queer-owned businesses and other folks from marginalized communities to generate social and ecological value, with and without financial return.
I believe we all have needs and we all deserve to have those needs met. I also believe in a just, post-capitalist world.
Good business isn't just about making money. It's about supporting our collective liberation. It's about meeting all of our needs, not just some.
"Earning a living" plays a huge role in our lives and unless you were born independently wealthy, you have to find a way to pay your mortgage, for food, possibly childcare, and so much more. And I think I can speak for the vast majority of us when I say we hope to be able to do this, to "earn this living", doing something at least moderately enjoyable. Right?
Yet, too often, we get stuck. Stuck working for someone we don't respect. Stuck doing work we don't believe in or care about. Stuck still not making enough money to meet our needs or the needs of the folks who depend on us.
We get sucked up and absorbed into the omnipresent system that is capitalism. I want to help you shift that awareness, to learn how to resist, and to start to build a post-capitalist world where we are all respected, loved, and cared for.
I strive to help folks identify their needs, the needs of their families, and the needs of our world.
I've always been interested in power. Who gets some. Who doesn't. How it can feel so implicit, so intangible, and yet so clearly there, so very very real.
This may or may not have something to do with the fact that I spent a great deal of my life trying to figure out how to exert power over my own life. Now as a mama to two tiny humans I see it in my babes. The deep desire for control, autonomy, choice.
I truly believe we all seek power over our own lives and bodies - and maybe some of us show that desire more vocally than others. 😬

Our mission and values
Emily Eley Coaching LLC is a womyn-founded and womyn-run business coaching practice. Our mission is to empower womyn-owned businesses, BIPOC-owned businesses, queer-owned businesses and other folks from marginalized communities to generate significant wealth and impact in the world. We believe you can have it all AND only you can define what “all” is. We believe it's possible to balance being a business owner, a partner, a parent, an athlete, a friend, an activist and more.
We know the societal confines in which we were raised do not define us and we’re determined to rewrite what “work-life balance” looks like. We live in a world that profits from keeping womyn feeling and acting small. We want more, and we think you do, too. We believe folx can learn to grow a profitable business, fall madly in love with their brain, and make a real impact in the world.
Our mission is to show folx how. We do this through our flagship program, Made 4 More, our live quarterly workshops, and active engagement in our communities.
WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
Personal responsibility first. We are committed to radical personal responsibility. That means admit when you’re wrong or when you’ve made a mistake. It also means stepping into your spotlight about your accomplishments and contributions and never downplaying them. There’s enough space and success for all of us, take responsibility and show up big.
Honor the customer. Our customers have gifted us with their big dreams and we honor that trust by providing the very best customer experience possible. We are 100% committed to serving our customers at the highest level with the full respect and quality they deserve.
Do epic shit. We are committed to making things happen. We’re a team of action takers, and when we come up against a roadblock we’re quick to find and jointly decide on a solution to make sure we keep moving forward. We’re not here to play small, and neither are you.
If you’re not learning you’re dying. We are committed to constantly improving and innovating. We refuse to stay stagnant or complacent. We thrive on coming up with new, creative ideas that will blow our customers away and take our company to the next level. We value and nurture creativity in our team.
We have high standards. While we create and produce a large amount of content and projects each year, we work hard to not compromise the quality of our work. Attention to detail is crucial in every task to ensure we are always producing the best content, events, training and experiences possible.
We’re a family. Being part of a small team means that at times we are all hands on deck. You’ll never hear anyone on the team say “that’s not my job.” Each of us shares a can-do, everything has a solution attitude. We are all in on this mission together.
We know we can always improve. Our team members are committed to education and growth. You’ll have access to the online trainings, books, and workshops you need to ensure you have the resources to assist you in getting the job done.
We lead with strengths. Every day you’ll be working in your strengths and doing things you love to do — managing exciting and fast moving projects and our people. You’ll be working smart, having fun and getting paid for it!
Laughter is mandatory. We love to work hard. We also love to play hard. We believe if you’re not having fun, what is the point? We’re a family, and having an environment where you can be yourself and have a good time is one of the many things we pride ourselves on.
We are moms. Although it is in no way a requirement to be a mom to work with us, we want you to know that many of us are WFH moms on the team and our families will always come first. Sometimes this means needing flexibility in schedules, sometimes this means there are kids on calls, and sometimes this means things get cancelled. We believe in mothers, and we believe in flexibility.
The future is equitable. We believe that economic equity is key to improving our greater society. We’re dedicated to helping people whose path to influence, power, and wealth has been made more difficult by prejudice and systemic inequality. We are on a mission to empower these folx by teaching them how to think differently, maximize their resources, and expand their reach as they build their businesses and capital.
