I launched The Female Creative in 2020 to coach, mentor and teach busy women how to turn their ideas into action and start a business doing something they love. Over the last 2 years The Female Creative has grown to offer 121 services, a monthly group membership, a podcast, The Female Creative Talks, and networking events. My experience has led me to focus on four business foundations; Messaging, Strategy, Systems and Mindset, to support female owned businesses to release their creativity, grow their audience and increase their income all whilst fitting business around a busy and all so demanding life.

I have over 20 years experience as a teacher and learning expert working with all ages from primary school to corporate adults and I even spent time abroad in the US, developing teenagers from inner city New York! That was life changing I can tell you!

 

For the last eight years I have been building my own marketing and branding experience, through creating my country music alter ego, Lily Garland (think along the lines of Beyoncé's Sasha Fierce!), and as Founder and Creative Director of my 3-day country music festival, Country on The Coast. I also have experience in running a Health and Wellness Network Marketing business, as well as corporate experience in leadership, development and coaching in various roles, developing people and leading them towards success is in my blood!

 

With a varied career history including time as a police officer, it has not always been an easy ride for me, as a survivor of domestic abuse there was a time where confidence and self-esteem were not the norm. I have spent many years rediscovering myself and growing in confidence and self-belief. It was during this time I discovered my love for entrepreneurship and dedicated time to developing skills in business, branding, marketing and web design.


I was honoured to be named by Yahoo Finance as one of their Top Ten Business Start up Coaches in 2021 and my podcast, The Female Creative Talks was shortlisted in the Skylark International Women's Podcast Awards for Entrepreneurial Inspiration. Most recently, I was chosen to receive an accolade for Top Female Business Coach Worldwide 2022 by Coach Foundation and was over the moon to be the recipient of a Pamodzi Inspirational Women Award 2022 in the Established Business Category.  I am also a finalist in the Women’s Business Awards for Business Women of the Year and am thrilled to be appearing as an expert pod host at the Women's Business Conference in October 2022, talking all things strategy and taking action!

AS well as being a lover of all thinks orange and pink (just in case you didn't realise!), I think penguins are awesome, am mum to a pre teen son, step daughter and bearded dragon and have an unhealthy obsession with Pizza (although it has to be gluten free!). I also wish life were like musicals where you can burst into song at any moment!


Now that's enough about me! Book a discovery call to tell me more about you!

SO HOW CAN YOU WORK WITH ME?

 

WHAT DO MY CLIENTS SAY?

The Female Creative Hub Membership, Portsmouth, Hampshire, Coaching for Female Owned Busin

‘Joining the Female Creative Hub has been such an amazing experience so far. From the weekly sessions, covering a huge range of topics for business owners, to guest talks.  Not to mention the support and networking opportunities within the Hub, a community of wonderful likeminded business owners. Hannah works incredibly hard to create a personal approach for each member, delivering quarterly 1:1's and always being 100% invested in your business’

KATIE/ The Home Design Counsellor / Interior Design

'Hannah is not only full of addictive energy; she is inspiring and full of great essential tips to get you really understanding your brand. Hannah makes everything seem possible; with sleek, beautiful styling! Thank you so much for making me do the work to really understand my ideal client & brand'

JEANNIE/ Solecare / Reflexology and Crystal Healing

Hannah was amazing, I’d tried to build a wix website but it was so much harder than I thought and it didn’t look anything like I wanted it to. She totally changed it up, but not just that, she taught me how to make changes and was always just a call or email away. She’s helped me realise what my brand really is and who my perfect customer is which I really hadn’t taken into account was so important. Thank you Hannah for always being there and picking me up when I thought I just wanted to Jack it all in! Xx

FIONA / Fill Your Roots / Family Tree Consultancy

I met Hannah Roper a year ago when my business was only a spark of an idea and her business, the female creative, wasn't born yet. We've both been on an incredible journey. Fast forward to today and we are both successful business owners and best friends! She has helped me massively in setting up my business, finding a name, identifying my ideal clients, dreaming big, marketing, social medias, etc! I cannot recommend Hannah enough! Thank you so so much for your valuable help!

She has made me the best website, logo, and helped me create so many social media marketing ideas and campaigns it’s amazing.  She is such a lovely warm helpful person as well and her creative ideas are never ending, a whiz on social media branding and so quick at it, I’ve recommended her to so many others, Ps her female creative community hub is worth the money to join as well
