Start Here: How I Help Entrepreneurs
I'm Ellory Wells, and I'm glad you're here! If you're new to the world of entrepreneurship and online business, a few years ago I was right where you are, and this site is for you! If you're an experienced entrepreneur looking to automate and scale your business, I'm also in that stage of growth, and this site is for you too!
This site is for… entrepreneurs
If you're new to the world of online business, or if you've just started a blog yourself, you'll get a lot of value in what you find here. Through my coaching and mastermind programs, I've helped dozens of entrepreneurs start, build and grow their businesses (both online and offline).
Or, if you've been in business a while and are looking to develop systems that will help you grow your business, you too are in the right place. The systems and automations I've put in place in my business have helped me grow significantly over the past few years, and I'll teach them to you.
In the beginning, I knew nothing…
When I first got started blogging in 2012, I'd never purchased a domain, I'd never heard of WordPress, and I'd never thought about becoming an entrepreneur. But I learned. I studied, tried new things, tested new themes, plugins, software, and tools, and kept learning about online business.
Fast forward a few years, and now…
I'm an expert at starting an online business and building scalable systems for automation. I've helped hundreds of people get started online, and I've personally coached nearly 100 entrepreneurs in how to build a solid foundation for their business, online or otherwise.
I've learned how to leverage my expensive Corporate education and training into a coaching and consulting business that helps new entrepreneurs get started, and existing businesses to build systems and scale without adding significant and expensive manpower. In short, I help business owners do more with less, and I help them get profitable faster.
Today, I host a successful podcast with thousands of listeners, I host paid mastermind groups for entrepreneurs, and I offer 1×1 business coaching for go-getters who need a little bit of an extra push, some additional accountability, and someone who'll guide them through their growth.
No longer do I drive to work and sit in traffic only to be greeted by an unfriendly face or the chance of getting laid off.
Everything you'll find here has one of two purposes. To either
A) Empower you with an entrepreneurial mindset
B) Equip you with the best tools for your business
By subscribing to my email list, reading blog posts, listening to podcast episodes and learning from me, you'll see that anything is possible and that empowerment comes from a belief in yourself. It means you know that your future is up to you, and to get what you want out of life, you have to ask for it and make it happen.
You will also be equipped with the tools of the trade that will help you build your business. I love getting into the details of how things work – after all, that's why I got a degree in psychology!
Even though I've been a business owner f or several years, I still research what's available and give you an expert opinion. I will save you time and help you get started right in a cost effective way.
And, if you want more information, here's how…
For some people, reading and listening aren't enough. They want more information, more tools, and more resources. If that sounds like you and you really want to throw fuel on the fired, here's what you need to do.
Enter your name and email so I can send you some of my favorite tools, and new tools and resources as I find them. Plus, I'll send you a few downloadable PDFs that have really helped me along the way.
Each episode will give you a deeper understanding of who I am, but, more importantly, they'll show you what it's like to be an entrepreneur building a business and a brand from scratch.
Just click on each of these links and they'll start playing in a new window. You can also right-click the links and save the mp3 file to your computer.

Fans of the show have listened to episode #49 more times than almost every other episode, but that's not why it's important. Episode 49 is the show that I've gotten the most feedback about. It's the one where people have told me it was like they were sitting in the room with my wife and me as we shared our journey. And, it's one of the most emotional episodes I've done. If you love these episodes, be sure to subscribe to The Ellory Wells Show in iTunes so you get new episodes as they come out.
Want to build a business of your own?
Here's how you can get started…
If you don't have a website, you're not a business. In this digital age, it's too easy to get started online not to have a digital space to call your own. Your website is the foundation everything else is built on. While there are free platforms out there (Blogger, Tumblr, Medium or even WordPress.com), those won't take you where you want to go. You need to own your digital space, not just rent it.
The first thing you need to do is purchase a domain name. That's the URL people go to when they want to visit your website. I purchase all of my domains from GoDaddy and recommend you do the same. GoDaddy makes it easy to buy domains and then forward them over to whatever web host you choose. Click here to check out GreenGeeks – they're the ones I use for almost all of my sites.

Purchase my books Exit Strategy: The Exact Tactics to Transition from Where You Have to Be to Where You Want to Be and How to Start Your Professional Podcast for $200 or Less. Both are available from Amazon if you'd prefer.
These two books are my absolute best resources for anyone looking to leave their job, sign more clients (or their first one), create a brand and start a business.
While How to Start Your Podcast was a #1 bestseller on Amazon, it is specifically about starting a podcast on a budget. Exit Strategy is for everybody, beginners and seasoned entrepreneurs alike. Both of these books will show you how I built a business and a brand that reaches tens of thousands of people each year and which allows me to live an incredible life I love!
Once you've invested in these two books (and in yourself), you're ready to move on to step three.
You absolutely need to surround yourself with the right people. Tiger Woods has a swing coach. Michael Jordan had a free throw coach. Bill Gates had a business coach. They each knew the importance of surrounding yourself with people who will encourage you and keep you accountable.
You've already got a website and a business, what else do I have?
My real passion lies in helping entrepreneurs go from walking to running. I love seeing new bloggers, podcasters, and business owners find clarity of purpose, build momentum and make their first sale! I love it! To provide guidance, accountability, community, and support to entrepreneurs, I host private group masterminds which kick off every quarter. To apply to be a part of the next mastermind, click here.
If you want 1×1 attention, I take coaching clients by application only. I love working with these entrepreneurs because I have a real partnership with them as the grow. And no, you don't have to be an entrepreneur to work with me. I don't know a thing or two about corporate America after all. To apply for business coaching, click here.
Thank you for stopping by! I'm glad you're here and honored you'd spend even just a few minutes with me.
My goal is to help you be successful, in whatever arena that may be in. I want you to live your life with joy and full of possibilities, even if that path doesn't lead to entrepreneurship for you.
If you send me an email, I will respond. If you need help, I'll do my best to give you a hand. Remember, I'm just like you. I didn't go to business school, I don't have a degree in design, and I didn't know about any of this when I started.
Everything I've done you can do too…
If you want some help, I can teach you or show you the resources to help you win. I'm here to empower and equip you and look forward to seeing you succeed!
See you soon!
