Dr. Ellie Drake is the founder and visionary behind BraveHeartWomen.com, the fastest-growing, global online community for Entrepreneurial Women. As a highly-magnetic speaker, doctor and successful entrepreneur, Ellie empowers women to take important steps toward achieving prosperity. At age 17, Ellie arrived in America as an immigrant from her native Iran where she recalls huddling in bomb shelters during the Iran-Iraq war. She held on to the inspiration that is the American dream and has since become living proof of its power. Ellie followed her vision and became a millionaire in the home-based, health industry. Her time-tested techniques to removing the blocks to prosperity, particularly for women, have made her an admired and sought-after consultant and figure. That success led her to give back – especially to women who struggle with financial independence. BraveHeart outreach includes an online, active community with blogs and discussion boards, local Meet & Greet events, and an online television Network that provides 10-minute, inspirational videos regarding personal blossoming, professional success, and global collaboration. BraveHeart Women TV has hosted such esteemed guests as Maya Angelou, Kathy Ireland, Lisa Nichols, and Siedah Garrett. Ellie currently resides in Ventura, CA with her husband Charlie and two sons.
