When it comes to building a successful business, your relationships matter. Join Woman-Run and Emma Willis, founder and CEO of Impact Period LLC, for a conversation about how to tap into your network and connections as resources for effective professional and personal growth.

Here’s more about Emma:

Impact. It’s my compass. Witnessing its ripple effect sparked my passion for community change. Rooted in Arkansas’ diverse landscapes, I’m a builder, driven by collaboration.

My journey began with privilege and resilience. My family’s McGehee funeral home instilled entrepreneurial fire, while my grandfather’s farm taught grit. But it was community, from my grandparents’ congregation to Philander Smith College, that truly shaped me.

From launching businesses to empowering communities, my career has been a testament to impact. I built a business from scratch, navigated the fintech world, and ignited collective passion for financial literacy and college access for hundreds.

Now, as founder and CEO of Impact Period LLC, I empower communities through strategic consulting. Multi-million dollar partnerships like “City of Entrepreneurs” are proof of our impact.

Measurable change is my yardstick. From growing Arkansas 529 assets to creating new jobs, I’ve seen the tangible results of collaboration.

This isn’t just a career; it’s a lifelong pursuit, fueled by the spirit of Arkansas and guided by a passion for community. Let’s explore the possibilities for collaboration.
