Emily A. Hay


After the early part of her sales career in corporate America, she paved her own way by using social media as her vehicle. Back in 2010 when even large companies were just testing the social media waters, Emily not only had the vanguard idea of starting a company to address the digital marketing needs of small business owners, but she hired a remote team of all women—mothers—who had temporarily sidelined their careers to raise children.

And that’s when this mama to two girls started living intentionally in Work+Life Integration Nation™, a place and a system that works FOR HER, and hasn’t looked back. Following her passions led to her owning her purpose as she works to help women launch their own social media businesses so they too can live and work flexibly and intentionally in Work+Life Integration Nation.™
