Founder of The Social Media CEO
Stephanie Gilbert is the founder of The Social Media CEO, where she helps women start & grow thriving social media businesses. Back in 2015 she successfully scaled her solo-freelancing-gig to a six figure social media agency in less than nine months and has since taught millions of creative business owners how to grow their brands on Instagram by working with the amazing team at Later.

The secret to her success (and ability to juggle #allthethings) lies in her signature systems-- something she's extremely passionate about teaching others as well

Riley kinnane-petersen & john petersen
Founders of Gunner & Lux
Riley loved to play dress up, accessorize, and find fashion inspiration at a very young age. During the summer of 2015, when Riley was just 5 years old she decided to use the vintage jewelry her dad John had collected for her to create her very first necklace. She learned how to use pliers, tweezers, and tie knots as she developed her own line of colorful, whimsical accessories.
Riley and John worked on these necklaces together after dinner each night. Soon, Riley began selling her individual charms at her summer lemonade stand, then on her website, and before they both knew it, their jewelry brand Gunner & Lux was being sold in stores all around the world.
Together, Riley and John have created something truly unique. Today, they hope their story and their designs inspire and bring smiles to those who START COLLECTING.
