I'm Frances Leary.
I Am The Soulcial Entrepreneur.

I am one of you. I understand your struggles. I've been there. I get it. I'm a real person. I don't always wear makeup. I take conference calls while snuggling sick kids. I say "no" to networking opportunities because I want to see my child's games. I also say "yes" to myself and my dreams and to those opportunities of a lifetime, even when that means missing my child's performance at school. I make the tough choices. So do you.

On any given day, my agenda may include: pack lunch, close a big deal, make play-doh, prepare a keynote, put goo in the dog's eye, conquer the world...not necessarily in that order.

You'll find me everywhere: at the local cafe, at the gym, volunteering in the community, traveling, spending time with family, and following my dreams...everywhere they take me.

I began my entrepreneurial journey in 2007 and founded what has become an award-winning online communications firm, Wired Flare, in 2011. After 7 years of working with clients around the globe, I learned a thing or two and earned awards for my work as an entrepreneur. 

I loved what I was doing, however I knew I was only tapping into a small portion of my passion and potential.

I craved the opportunity to work more directly with the SOUlcial entrepreneurs that I connected with most. My people. My tribe. The REAL business owners out there who, just like me, are everything to so many others and still want more.

I wanted to share the knowledge I have gained about entrepreneurship and how it all fits into the overall scheme of life by sharing all aspects of who I am:

So I created The Soulcial Entrepreneur as an opportunity for connection, empowerment and business growth for all those entrepreneurs who are doing it all at home and at work and who still give everything they've got to support their local communities and create a legacy of good.

WELCOME! Thank you for joining me in this community of SOULcial entrepreneurs...and in everything else that entails. It is an absolute privilege to support you in your growth and to provide an opportunity for us all to learn from and grow with each other. It's going to be an amazing adventure.

The "Official" Word

That's me to the right - Frances Leary. I'm a Texan-Canadian-Coloradoan entrepreneur. Whew, that's a mouthful.

My MA in folklore led to the development of a unique marketing approach and ultimately to identifying what I've coined SOULcial communication.

I've been privileged to be recognized with nominations for the RBC Women Entrepreneur of the Year Awards and by being a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. I speak internationally to inspire and educate diverse audiences, and my passion is to tell stories that champion big ideas and generate big impact, using my knowledge to help inspire authentic, real, soulful engagement that affects positive change in the world.

In my free time you'll find me with my husband and daughter, enjoying the great outdoors or playing some tunes around the campfire. If not, you may catch me on a local stage indulging my love of musical theater.

Connect with Me: LinkedIn and Twitter

I'm also a video star...or at least I think I am.
