Founder & Podcast Host of Cubicle to CEO™
Her journey from "Cubicle to CEO" began when she quit her corporate marketing job at the end of 2017...without a backup plan.
A self-described accidental entrepreneur, she landed her first client a month into the job search and decided she'd never submit another resume again. Ellen profitably bootstrapped her business growth, scaling that initial $300 client project into 7 figures in revenue; a milestone only 2% of female founders ever achieve, and one that feels especially momentous as a first-generation Asian American.
To date, Ellen has served over 9,000 entrepreneurs and brands through her online courses + marketing agency services. Her online membership teaches solopreneurs who offer clients services how to make their first $10K month - without a large audience or posting every day.
She also hosts the award-winning Cubicle to CEO Podcast, rated a "new & noteworthy" show by Apple Podcasts during its release week and now downloaded in over 100 countries worldwide as well as charting in multiple Top 50 Entrepreneurship Podcast rankings.
Ellen's business insights have also been featured in Forbes and on the TODAY show with Hoda & Jenna, in addition to publications like Yahoo! Finance, MSN, Databird Business Journal, Thrive Global, HerMoney, and BlogHer.
Why typical marketing "guru" advice like posting every day and chasing new followers is overwhelming you with work but underwhelming you with profitable results (and the simplified strategies to use instead).

Ellen has publicly disclosed her business finances through detailed income reports for almost 2 years now, in an effort to bring transparency to the online industry and empower women to reach for more by breaking the barriers on a traditionally taboo topic. She is an open book when it comes to how she bootstrapped a debt-free, 7 figure business by the age of 26, as a first generation Asian American.
