what I'm really known for:

...,Emily Grey brings her ‘win them over’ know-how, delightful enthusiasm and every day wit to encourage women to use their influence for good. She is a speaker, small business coach, and impact entrepreneur with a special focus on helping makers and brand owners land + grow wholesale accounts.

Six years ago, Emily founded her brick + mortar and online boutique, The Flourish Market, building it to a million dollar business in less than 3 years with zero paid advertising. She is also the Founder of The Locality, a co-working space + incubator program for 60 women in Downtown Raleigh, NC. She has spoken on national stages for Rachel Rodgers, Brendon Burchard and Alt Summit, and her advice for indie brands has been sought after and featured in Forbes, Shopify, Create & Cultivate, + on the largest wholesale platform, Faire.

My official fancy bio: With a past career on Wall Street as a Vice President of Communications and Change Management...


Need an engaging storyteller to motivate the heck out of every person in your audience? I’ve been told I’m the gal for the job. With WOO as my top strength + Communication as my #2, I’m ready to bring energy, enthusiasm, and a keynote full of tangible tips to your event.  Your goal is my goal: to have attendees leaving feeling inspired, and also with a straightforward, easy to execute roadmap that will move the bottom line in income and impact for their business.

Keynote Speaker


Where is God when life gets hard?  I love leaning into the uncomfortable + sharing the redeeming love of a Jesus that weeps with us.  I especially love engaging with audiences that have been burned + hurt by Christians.

Faith Based Talks


Are you a conference organizer for small business owners? Let’s connect! I love helping small business owners understand how to win others over - to not only their products + services, but even more so to their bigger brand story + mission.

Entrepreneur Trainings


It would be my great honor to motivate your tribe to live a life of positive influence + impact. We have a list of 25 specific topic ideas for you to choose from to best fit your audience’s needs.  

Podcast Guest


While I’m sadly no longer able to work 1:1 with entrepreneurs, I offer 4 online courses that are the jam! These online classes will take you from overwhelm to focused, purposeful action that will grow your business, your impact, + your legacy.

Educational Resources


--> conference organizers who need an engaging speaker to provide tangible tips that equip makers and brand owners to land + grow wholesale accounts .

--> podcast hosts who want to inspire their listeners to live a life of positive influence + impact through entrepreneurship.

--> retreat organizers who need an expert to teach attendees how to nail their pitch email and outreach to new retail accounts. 

--> writers + journalists who want a retailer's perspective on what *really* works to get products onto our store shelves.  (I have one specific tip to landing wholesale accounts that no one is doing!) 

--> tv producers who want a seasoned speaker and thought leader to deliver high impact tips for entrepreneurs leveraging the shop small movement.

My favorite type of people in the world to work with are...


- Jenna Kutcher, Host of the Goal Digger Podcast (Top 5 in iTunes for Business Podcasts)

"Emily is incredible. The way that she speaks makes you listen, and she has so much valuable wisdom to share. She makes people feel seen and heard and she really contributes to the world in a way that makes you feel less alone. I think what I love the most about Emily is that she can use a topic like influence (something that we might have iffy feelings about) and really persuade you to know that this is how we can change the world. I am just so thankful for voices like Emily’s in this world. This was THE best podcast interview I’ve ever done."
