Meet Kelly

hey there!

I'm Kelly.

A Business Mentor, Personal Brand and Style Expert, Dream-Nurturer and Goal-Grabber constantly dedicated to cultivating entrepreneurs to grow their personal brand and business for maximum financial return.

once upon a time...

In the shoes of this successful business owner once stood a young girl with big dreams, in her Emirates airline's standard-issue pillar box red heels.

I had an entrepreneurial itch to scratch that I could no longer ignore. So I hung up my wings, took a car loan making sure to write 'Porsche’ on the form, and invested every dirham of it to launch the Middle East’s first-ever styling agency.

The fact that styling & personal shopping was a new concept to the market, coupled with the pending global recession bubbling between the balance sheets, wrote the prelude to my next big life chapter – my first make or break business turning point, just three years into its infancy.

In 2009 it hit, like a slap in the face. To jump out of my comfort zone once more and pivot my business, I swam hard against the tide and hired my first business coach. At a time when others scaled back, I invested… in me. My continued success is constant proof that it was the best investment I ever made (the Manolos come a close second though).

Kelly Before She Became A Stylist

It was my Aha! Moment – learning that everything I needed to know was already out there and by working smarter and not harder, I could learn from the mistakes of others to create the success in myself.

So I shunned the naysayers, I CTRL+X’ed the Negative Nancies telling me I wasn’t techy enough to survive in a digital landscape. I renaissance-d my way back to educating (an inerrant passion of mine), published an e-book and created my first online course. I worked out how to record my own podcast series, built an online community of big business dreamers around me and constantly re-assessed what worked, what didn’t and what I could do to develop my own personal brand… remembering Marie Forleo’s words, "Everything is figureouatable."

and now ...

I help entrepreneurs to grow their personal brand and business for maximum financial return; create a space in the digital market place and amplify their value, personal brand and profit.

Kelly Is A Style Expert

... and she lived happily ever after.

I've never been happier!

I'm able to do this because I share what I know. I teach what I’ve personally done to build a time-leveraged successful business and I want you to be able to do the same.

Start your journey, write your next chapter, build your personal brand or launch your business!
