Named the “Entrepreneurial Guru for Women” by Business News Daily, Ali Brown provides business coaching and advice to over 250,000 followers via her social media channels, and her Glambition® Radio show.
Ali Brown, a native of Fairfield County, Conn., cut her teeth in marketing in her early 20s, starting as an account assistant at Mosby Consumer Health in Boston and working her way up to head the new publishing division at The Benjamin Group advertising agency in New York.
Desiring creative freedom and financial independence, Ali became a freelance marketing communications writer in 1999. Starting with only a dial-up Internet connection, a personal computer, and her basic writing skills, Ali built a thriving practice, eventually attracting prestigious clients such as New York Times Digital, Adweek Magazine, Scholastic Books, and Dun & Bradstreet.
In 2001, she started publishing her first email newsletter, or “ezine,” to help market her business. It worked well to gain her clients, so she authored an e-book titled “Boost Business with Your Own E-zine.” Ali sold it on her website, and it won several International APEX Awards. Based on its success, she then created dozens of additional courses and products sold online to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses and profit.
Today, Ali is the inspirational driving force behind a rapidly expanding multimillion-dollar empire that includes Ali Magazine, Ali Boutique, the Millionaire Protégé Club, and SHINE.
The highly successful Ali Magazine is a unique blend of business, beauty, life, and style coverage for the female entrepreneur; the Ali Boutique is an innovative bricks-and-mortar and online retail concept that marries business and glamour.
One of Ali’s greatest joys is coaching budding entrepreneurs. She designed the Millionaire Protégé Club to be the world’s premier coaching club for those who would like to grow their businesses, or those who are ready to leave corporate jobs and become entrepreneurs.
Ali’s annual live event SHINE is designed to inspire entrepreneurs to think creatively about marketing, and to take the smart risks that allow their businesses to thrive no matter what state the economy is in. Ali provides hands-on exercises and personal coaching at each of her events, where she has interviewed numerous inspiring women including real estate mogul and star of ABC’s Shark Tank, Barbara Corcoran, Baby Einstein founder Julie Clark and Academy Award® winning actress Marlee Matlin.
Over the years, Ali has cultivated a large and loyal following, with nearly 40,000 fans subscribing to her weekly ezine. When she’s not traveling the world for speaking engagements or media appearances, Ali runs her business from her beachside home. Her success has caught the attention of Inc. Magazine, which placed her on their list of the 500 fastest-growing companies in the nation in 2009. Additionally, Ali has been interviewed on the E! network as well as numerous NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, and CW network affiliates.
Ali believes that philanthropy goes hand-in-hand with success. Her next project will be forming a foundation to empower underprivileged girls to achieve their dreams through entrepreneurship.
Ali Brown is a ROCKSTAR—there is no other way to better describe her. She led a mastermind group with our top female advisors and they absolutely ate up everything she taught them…from how to better position your practice to how to find your true purpose as a business owner. Her ability to inspire others through her own story is a gift that very few possess. She is dynamic, motivational and more importantly, a wealth of knowledge on how to grow your business. We’ve used dozens of speakers over the year and Ali was hands down the best. We can’t wait to bring her back!”
We were so excited to have Ali as the keynote at our first annual Center for Technology & Business Women’s Business Summit, which the governor of North Dakota himself attended. Her enthusiasm and inspirational message rang true to our audience. As event organizers you can’t ask for anything more than a happy audience. We had wonderful feedback on Ali’s presentation, and participants were definitely inspired to step up and move forward on their professional journeys. We highly recommend Ali as an entrepreneurial speaker.”
Ali Brown’s session at the California Women’s Conference was standing room only. Our attendees were lined up in droves to hear her advice on entrepreneurship, thinking bigger, and embracing our huge potential for success along with our femininity. And of course they loved hearing about her life-changing experience on ABC’s ‘Secret Millionaire’. We will definitely be having her back in the future.”
Where do I begin…we were so excited to be able to bring Ali Brown to NAWBO Southern Nevada to be our guest speaker and never expected what she would do for us. We had an event planned and wanted a powerhouse speaker and WOW, we got that and so much more! Ali was beyond amazing; she was so REAL, PASSIONATE and INSPIRED us all. Everyone that I have spoken to after that event was just blown away with Ali. Our members and guests loved her engagement and transparency. Having her as our speaker during a transitional time for our chapter has been the spark for great growth and excitement for NAWBO Southern Nevada. Ali, we are so grateful and can’t wait to have you back again.”
