What is 30under30?
30under30 is an Anthill initiative launched in early 2008 to encourage and promote entrepreneurship among young Australians. Each year, we invite our readers to nominate young Australian entrepreneurs deserving of recognition for their outstanding entrepreneurial endeavours. More.
Emily Gowor, VIC (b. 1987)
Name: Emily Gowor
Age: 24 (Born: December 1987)
Known for: Word Artist
“The entrepreneur’s journey is an incredible way to discover your true self and capacity for success,” says Emily Gowor, a best-selling author, motivational speaker and mentor who identifies herself through her own personal brand, the Word Artist.
Her statement would seem obvious to most entrepreneurs. Yet Gowor, 24, knows how to make it tangible and relevant to those who lose sight of the relationship between life-fulfilling work and financial reward. Through every imaginable channel — print, YouTube, social media, one-on-one coaching — she reaches out to those in doubt or in crisis, using words to break down the human psyche in plain terms and empower them through inspiration.
“I learned to create an online business that can be done from anywhere,” she says. “Other people let fear stop them from taking the leap of faith success requires sometimes.”
Gowor is the author of Transformational Leaders, a book examining the lives of 13 influential world leaders, which has sold 5,000 copies. She has travelled the world through the generosity of strangers and maintained an award-winning travel and business blog.
She is versed in the Demartini Method, developed by international speaker Dr. John Demartini (with whom she has worked) to identify the key areas of human development, and is also a certified practitioner of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).
All of this has been possible because she chose to pull herself up from the abyss five years ago, after suffering a major episode of depression.
“I was suicidal and thought that life had nothing to offer me,” she recalls. And yet, “even when everything lost its meaning and I felt raw, I sensed deep down that I could do extraordinary things in life.
“Every moment since then has been dedicated to making sure other people follow their inspiration and achieve.”
Gowor remains, to her foundations, a virtuoso writer. Aside from her books, she has written up hundreds of professional bios and interviewed a hundred of the world’s most accomplished social entrepreneurs. She also runs book-coaching programs for business aspirants who seek guidance on spreading their brand.
“Writing is and always has been one of my gifts,” acknowledges Gowor. “I have often had clients and people say, ‘You really are The Word Artist!’ after reading my content.”
If she possesses any greater outstanding talent, it’s her ability to inspire as much as to be inspired.
“Every day I hear people say that I inspired them in some way — whether in business or to aim for more in life,” she says. “This means a whole lot to me: it’s my mission in my life and business.”
Anthill asks: Emily Gowor, what motivates you as an entrepreneur?
I’m driven as an entrepreneur because I believe the world is a magnificent, beautiful place to be; one filled with endless opportunity and possibilities…you just have to be willing to see it. It’s my mission to make sure people do.
Emily Gowor, Word Artist
