Local, Anchorage Entrepreneur Launches First Book, Makes #1 on Amazon New Releases
Blakeley was born into a family of entrepreneurs and raised in the small town of Soldotna, Alaska. From a young age, she learned that if she wanted to spend time with her parents, she would have to get involved in the family businesses. Blakeley helped her family build Soldotna from the ground-up, working for the family diner, "Sal's," and assisting with other projects and ventures.
Her natural aptitude and passion for entrepreneurship led Blakeley to a startup lifestyle. She has launched thirteen businesses in multiple industries, from a flower and gift shop to a restaurant, bar, and lounge. She is currently the Owner of East Gate Management and Consulting and the Founder of Molly B's Bingerz: Booze-Infused Gourmet Cookies, a fast-growth specialty products startup. Blakeley has a brilliant mind for mixing familiar ideas and creating entirely new and disruptive products and services.
Blakeley spends her free time creating and helping others with their creative endeavors. She is the mother of three wonderful tweens and adults. In the last chapter of her book, Blakeley attributes her lifetime of success not only to sound business principals but also to her faith. Regardless of faith, Blakeley hopes that How to Be Fearless in Business will give its readers the courage to follow their business dreams.
Interested parties can register for the signing event, Fearless, Fierce & Fabulous on East Gate Management and Consulting's Facebook page. Participants will receive a free copy of Blakeley's book with registration. Speakers include Anchorage female entrepreneurs Jasmin Smith of Baby Vend and The Business Boutique and Laurie Lacey of Myriad Marketing Strategies.
