Emily Worden is a Boston-based author, speaker, entrepreneur, and business coach. She started her custom handbag business eThreads.com in 2006 while pursuing an MBA and working three jobs. After a particularly awful shift at her weekend catering gig, Emily threw down the apron and said, “Screw it, I’m going to do something I love!” She finished the MBA in 2008 and quit all her jobs to pursue eThreads full time. Emily started the cat lifestyle business Ferocious Friends in 2012 to satisfy the needs of felines and their humans. She started her consulting business in 2013 to assist other businesses with persuasive writing, strategic vision, and customer satisfaction. Emily wrote Make. Sell. Repeat. The Ultimate Business Guide for Artists, Crafters, and Makers in 2014 to help creative entrepreneurs make money doing what they love. Emily is grateful everyday for following her dreams and hopes to inspire others to do the same.
