A Note from Emily, Founder + Owner, The Flourish Market + The Locality

Hey-0 + welcome, friend!  Can I just immediately say something with all the zest in the world?  ---> . Women are freakin’ strong, and together we’re unstoppable!  

And that's why I was so super pumped about launching...

The Locality!  As part of our home for The Flourish Market in The Warehouse District, we now have a hub for 60 triangle based female entrepreneurs to connect and collaborate.  

Our gorgeously designed co-working space is a spot where absolute magic happens as we surround ourselves with like-minded women courageously going after their goals.

A Co-working Space for Female Entrepreneurs!

established june 2019 in downtown raleigh

Every single female entrepreneur I’ve ever coached or chatted with has used this word: alone. And I know I felt like that when I first launched my business. I felt lonely, and like no one - even those closest to me - understood my ambition or the daily battle it is to put yourself out there (and get rejected!).

…and then I found other entrepreneurs that just got it. They absolutely got it. They understood the daily fight!

Surrounding myself with these women daily through texts, FaceTime calls, in person coffee dates, and lunch meetings, has been the secret sauce to feeling able to conquer anything entrepreneurship has thrown my way.

Because entrepreneurship is no joke. Am I right?! community.  We are looking to replicate what we've seen help the women behind our products flourish in life and in business -- right here in our own community.

Our co-working space is inspired by how women do business and life together in the developing world: 

...,Emily Grey brings her ‘win them over’ know-how, delightful enthusiasm and every day wit to encourage women to use their influence for good. From Wall Street to the streets with no name, you can now find Emily traveling in developing nations to find gorgeous new goods for her Downtown Raleigh, NC Boutique + online shop, The Flourish Market. She is an overly obsessed dog mom, a karaoke back up dancer aficionado, a speaker + educator, and an avid believer that every woman is worthy of influence.

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


“And when we make the choice to dare greatly, we sign up to get our asses kicked. We can choose courage or we can choose comfort, but we can’t have both. Not at the same time.” - Brené Brown

When I think of what our city and state (and world!) would look like when women truly connect, feel less alone in their struggles, and are supported in community, I see a future where we are an unstoppable force for good!

But we have to step into the arena and dare greatly...

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


At The Locality, you will be able to look around at the women out there in the arena with you. Marred faces. Dusty and sweaty bodies. Bruised spirits. But they’ll have this special fire in their hearts just like you that keeps them striving valiantly. 

In our co-working space, we have a board that shows all of our fails of the week, and a board that highlights our successes - and we’ll celebrate it ALL, together.

We offer complimentary monthly member socials for networking as well as monthly development classes to keep us unstuck, but I think the most valuable thing on tap will be knowing you are so not alone.  

Here’s the good news: you don’t have to step out into the arena alone.
