The growing community of more than 10,000 female entrepreneurs at GraceLever.com & The Doing Academy has Grace Lever to thank for providing the wealth of crucial tools and resources as well as the vital support and empowerment necessary for ensuring the long-term success of any lifestyle business entrepreneur. A digital marketing expert, Ms. Lever also hosts workshops and contributes to a variety of written publications in order to share her insights regarding entrepreneurship as well as her extensive and diverse areas of professional expertise.
Ms. Lever, a longtime resident of Sydney, Australia, leveraged her own success as an entrepreneur to relocate to the wine country of Adelaide Hills where she enjoys the contentment that comes with the realization of entrepreneurial freedom. In achieving her own professional goals and the entrepreneurial freedom that naturally followed, Ms. Lever became inspired to build a community based on the power of collaboration and, perhaps most importantly, the power of “doing.”
Ms. Lever’s community of female entrepreneurs has gone on to enjoy immense successes through the application of the same principles and strategies the founder of GraceLever.com & The Doing Academy relied on while building multiple seven-figure businesses in a period never exceeding 12 months.
Do you know what steez is? If so, how do you express your steez?
Gang Starr has a place in Australian popular culture, so yes, I am well aware of the concept of “Steez.” I’ve created a brand — based on empowering female entrepreneurship through the principle of “doing” — in which my Steez is clearly expressed on a daily basis.
When you were younger what was your dream occupation?
Whether I realized it or not at the time, my dream for the future always involved entrepreneurship. Throughout the entirety of my youth, I was always coming up with novel business ideas and could have been considered what you might call a small-scale entrepreneur.
Who/What inspired you to get into your current field?
The growing number of female entrepreneurs all over the world served as the initial inspiration for my current endeavors, especially when I realized how many aspiring entrepreneurs appeared hesitant to actually pursue their professional goals through entrepreneurship.
What is one current trend that excites you?
I’m excited by the continued increase in empowerment among female entrepreneurs and look forward to making sure this trend continues to gain momentum going forward.
What would you consider your biggest accomplishment?
Building multiple seven-figure businesses is certainly one of my biggest accomplishments, but the success of the female entrepreneurs I’ve worked with through GraceLever.com & The Doing Academy overshadows anything else I’ve been able to achieve as a professional thus far.
What do you think of social media? Has it made an impact on your professional career?
Social media is one of the most important tools at my disposal as a professional, and it has certainly had an impact on what I’ve been able to accomplish through digital marketing.
If you were ever to start again, would you do anything differently?
I would have taken steps to streamline and automate certain aspects of my businesses at an earlier stage than I did, but I am more than content with the decisions I made that allowed me to enjoy all the success I have experienced during my professional career.
What do you see for the future?
There is so much untapped potential just waiting to be inspired or empowered to take action that I cannot imagine anything other than an incredibly bright future for female entrepreneurship all over the globe.
What’s one piece of advice you can tell our readers?
