In the last four years, Gremillion’s PR background and Deljou’s coaching skills have combined to build an ecosystem of resources under Mavenly+Co., including workshops, a podcast and a Midtown-based conference for business women. The duo makes their commute to the historic Sweet Auburn district in downtown Atlanta for their office at the newly opened co-working spot, Constellations. Gremillion shares how they’re providing resources to growing entrepreneurs via different media, including a podcast and online courses and why entrepreneurs should never stop learning.
What’s Mavenly + Co.’s mission and how did it get started?
One thing we know to be true at Mavenly + Co. is that women are meant for so much more than what they settle for. As such, Mavenly’s mission is to provide women with the tools and resources they need to successfully work for themselves so they can get more of what they truly want—freedom, time and money. In 2014, my co-founder, Tallia, and I dedicated our professional lives to learning how we can help women turn their dream careers into a reality, and we have been working to create the answer ever since through workshops, events, private coaching, online courses and conferences.
What kind of skills can entrepreneurs gain from those resources?
One of our most popular resources is our Behind the Business toolkit. This is a guide outlining all of the tools, systems and software we use at Mavenly to effectively streamline and run our business. We believe you should run your business instead of your business running you. It is available all the time, through our website, and only $27. For women looking for a more in-depth experience, we have three different programs based on need. Our programs are a mix of mindset coaching and action planning—from overcoming mental obstacles and fears to bringing your vision to life by creating a brand. The experience is meant to clear the path to entrepreneurship so you can create the business and life you want.
Let’s talk about the “Women, Work and Worth” podcast. If you could pick three episodes to start with, which ones would they be?
The podcast covers a wide variety of topics for entrepreneurs, including productivity hacks, money mindset tips, informative in-depth interviews, quick meditations and more. We believe our podcast provides listeners with the perfect blend of inspirational storytelling and actionable advice that will leave them feeling motivated and ready to get to work. The three episodes we would start with are: “The Difference Between Dreamers and Doers,” “Starting Something New + Pursuing Your Big Idea” and “New Year, Next Level You.”
What opportunities do you offer for one-on-one consulting and business growth?
Our bread and butter are our individual coaching and consulting packages where we work with women one-on-one for three to six months to help bring their businesses to life. We have seen amazing success and growth in our clients. We also host masterminds and retreats for women to connect in an intimate setting so they can work on their ideas with other like-minded women. These opportunities give them the community and connections they need to develop and grow in both their personal and professional lives.
Why is it important for entrepreneurs and career-age adults to keep learning new skills and seek out relevant education?
We believe at the core of entrepreneurship is the desire to solve problems. To continue to solve problems and create great solutions, it is imperative that we keep learning and growing as individuals. We know that there is a strong correlation between personal development and professional success, and we want to give women the tools and resources they need to succeed at their highest level.
