Name: Emily Sophie

Location: Essex, United Kingdom

Emily McElligott - It GIrl of the WeekQ. Why did you decide to start your business? I decided to start my online dance & fitness business because I wanted to be able to reach as many women as possible to help them get fit and healthy for life! I am passionate about helping other people lead healthy, balanced lifestyles and I believe that exercise should be a fun & enjoyable experience and something that you actually look forward to doing. I want women to love their bodies and treat themselves with kindness, instead of punishing their bodies through exercise they don’t enjoy and working out in a way that could end up in injury or burnout. I created my highly effective, hugely fun dance & fitness workouts to show people that fitness and fun CAN go hand in hand!

Q. Aside from your business, what do you like to do for fun? I am so passionate about my business, but I also know that maintaining a balance between work and personal life is extremely important, which is why I regularly make time to see my family, go on trips with my partner, watch movies, go for walks, read inspirational books, go to the theatre and meet up with friends!

Q. What would you tell someone who is considering starting a business and becoming an It Girl Entrepreneur? If you’ve got a dream you want to pursue and a burning desire in your heart to see it through, then I would say GO FOR IT!! Start before you’re ready, because the timing will never be right, so just jump right in! Of course it will be a little bit scary, but it will also be worth it :)

Emily McElligottQ. What is the best thing about your business? I love the freedom that my online dance & fitness business allows me to have, as I can work from anywhere, which allows me time to do the other things I love, like spending time with my partner, seeing my family and travelling to new places! I also love that I am able to reach more women than I ever thought possible through taking my business online, which ultimately means that I am able to help more women lead healthy, balanced lives and have fun on their journey doing this!

Q. What exciting plans are you working on at the moment? I recently launched my 8 Week Intensive program, which was so exciting to put out into the world! I am also planning on creating 1-1 packages for women who want more personalised plans and help in achieving their health and fitness goals, which I am super excited about too as I love getting to know my clients and creating bonds with them!

Q. What does being an It Girl Entrepreneur mean to you? I love being an entrepreneur and being surrounded by other It Girls from all over the world! It’s like having another little family that is constantly there to support, encourage and inspire you and everyone has got your back and wants you to succeed which is incredible and I’m so grateful to be part of that!
