In this episode, I interview Emily Gowor, an inspirational writer, author, and speaker. Aged 19 in 2007, Emily launched her writing business, traveling around the world in her early 20s, writing an award-winning blog, staying with friends, and living on $22,000 a year in earnings. In her mid-20s, she settled back in Australia and doubled her revenue three years in a row to hit over $100,000 per annum, peaking at $249,000 when she was aged 27. At only 23, she was asked to write her first book and is now a writer, author, speaker, trainer, coach, and consultant.
Emily’s writings, projects, and speaking presentations have touched and moved thousands globally as she inspires people to reach for more. Her purpose-finding tool, the Inspiration Formula, is licensed to consultants around the world who are dedicated to showing clients a lasting glimpse of their destiny on Earth. As a winner of the 2012 and 2014 Anthill 30under30 Young Entrepreneur Award, Emily has been featured in a range of media sharing her inspirational messages.
70 to 80% of her sales are from training courses and coaching, and the rest are from speaking, and the eleven books she has published. She has launched over 25 online courses on writing and publishing books and building a business from zero to $100,000 a year as a coach. She has clients all over the world and has grown from one full-time employee to two (Spread across several contractors). Emily felt she had succeeded when a couple of moments she realized she didn’t work for anyone.
She highlights that the hardest thing about growing a small business is making sure the business is taking you in the direction of your purpose and your legacy. The one thing she says she would tell herself on day one of starting out in business is, “Don’t you dare give up. Great things are coming” Please help me welcome, the very inspirational, Emily Gowor.
