 Q&A with EntreCon speaker Emily Ley

emilyley350Emily Ley’s success has been based on simplicity in not only her product line, but in how she wanted to run her business.

Ley, the founder and creative director of Emily Ley, is homegrown talent turned successful entrepreneur.

She grew up in Pensacola, graduated from the University of West Florida and became the executive director of Ballet Pensacola. She then worked in nonprofit management and public relations before launching her company, Emily Ley, in 2008.

After a successful online launch, Ley’s products – including her signature Simplified Planner – grew to be carried in more than 300 retail outlets across the United States and around the world.

Her story is one of empowerment for all entrepreneurs — especially women.
