Rose Jubb, image consultant & stylist

Creator of Style Class™ & the Owner’s Society membership

Style Class™ was started when wardrobe stylist and image consultant, Rose, realized that only women of means could afford her private wardrobe stylist rates and only companies could afford her consulting. What about the hard working women out there that haven't reached their goals yet, but could desperately use style to achieve them? 

Rose now creates easy and affordable tools to help women style themselves (specifically women business owners and working women) for the businesses and lives they want. She still does private sessions in the Portland, OR area and over video, and trains sales teams and individuals across the nation on low to leverage their image for higher confidence and better results, but much of her efforts are poured into her online course participants and her membership, the Owner’s Society. Rose creates courses, books, and even podcasts about styling women for where they want to go and their big goals.

ABBI WOOD, wordsmith

professional writer and writing coach

I’ve spent 15 years — and am comfortable — with language ranging from jargon-heavy to business casual to you. I excel at polishing and taking what you have to the next level. Or we can start from scratch!

With professional training in proofreading, I have the eagle eyes to look over the technicalities of your written English. And my background with TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) matches me perfectly with clients that don’t speak English as a first language. Oh, as if that wasn’t enough — I spent the first 24 years of my life in England and the remainder (thus far) in the USA; I’m fluent in both British and American English.

EMILY ROACH, Creator OF BIZ BFF

Oh hey! I'm Emily and writing a bio kind of makes me want to throw up! I'm always worried that I'll come off weird and braggy or super boring. So before I do something dumb like blurt out my college GPA, I'll just tell you that I'm really glad you're here, and I can't wait to get to know you!

It took me a long time to figure out what I'm really the best at. (Graphic Design? Teaching? Doing math problems really fast in my head? Reciting lines from Mallrats?) But I do know that I'm a really good best friend. And I'd love to be friends with you!

I'm here to remind you that you've totally got this whole biz thing in the bag. I'm here to support and encourage you, and to take the really hard stuff and break it down so it feels easy. You are not doing this all alone--I'm right here with you!

BRENDA BRYAN, TRANSFORMATIONAL COACH AND INSPIRATIONAL SPEAKER - CREATOR OF RAISE YOUR VOICE

Brenda came to a deep understanding of change through her own life experience and then educating herself.

She noticed that after years of political activity the disparity her community felt when their actions failed to create any change, Brenda began looking for a different means to create change. A turning point in this search came as a result of reading the book “Working from the Inside Out” by Sonia Johnson, which changed her approach to everything she did. From that point on she recognized the need for tools that would change the world through the inner work that reflected the outer consciousness. 

As a knowledgeable advisor in the areas of Business, Emotional Intelligence, Communications, and Health, Brenda provides ongoing support, gently guides as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve all aspects of your life. As a Transformational Coach, she listens carefully and helps you navigate the world of contradictory advice to determine what changes work for you.

EMILY JONES, COACH AND CREATOR OF FREE SPIRIT COACHING

I'm Emily Jones, athlete, mama, veteran spouse, and lover of travel. I find that I am at my best when I am working through big changes or new experiences.

Growing up in a pro-athlete family sports were in our blood. When I did this I found my energy, my strength, my ability to be the mom, wife, sister, daughter and woman that I want to be. It's always a work in progress - Many days I feel on top of it all, other days I have to work a little harder. But I now have the mindset + strength to lean into my struggle.

In helping others do the same, I was able to find that fire again. There is a better way to live our everyday than to feel like it's groundhogs day....every damn day. Healthy food does not have to suck, fitness does not have to be complicated, and appreciating small moments can only happen when we appreciate ourselves. 

My vision with Free Spirit Coaching is to spread this love; to empower women to rediscover their own self love and confidence through health and total body wellness. I want my clients to walk away feeling the strength they carry with them every single day to CHOOSE a better way of living. Empowered women empower women, and the positive cycle continues.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER: LEANN GENTRY, OWNER OF WRITE ON MEDIA

Interested in finding out a little about the person behind Write On Media? My writing career actually began in grade school when my next-door neighbor and I decided to write a newspaper for our street. It was a rather ambitious endeavor and I'm not sure it lasted beyond a couple editions, but it's fair to say I was hooked! 

I graduated with a degree in Mass Communications and have been working in the Public Relations and Marketing industry in one way or another for almost 20 years. I've worked with agencies, a newspaper, small businesses and a couple non-profits too. In 2011 I also received my Masters Degree in Strategic Communication. All this gives me (and you) a varied background and tons of experience writing for all types of industries.

I've always loved listening to peoples' stories. In fact, I think I might have a special gene or something because not only do people seek me out to talk to, they also seem to completely open up to me. You might say it's a calling of sorts and I've decided to run with it. And, it has brought me to today. Ready to work with you and deliver writing that shines! Not forced or contrived. Not stuffy or boring, but you at your best - period.
