Grace Lever

Long before she enrolled in the International College of Management in Sydney, New South Wales, Grace Lever had already developed a keen interest in the empowerment made possible through entrepreneurship. As the founder of & The Doing Academy, Grace can take pride in the fact that her early interest in entrepreneurial empowerment has not only been instrumental in the success she has since gone on to achieve, but also in the success of the growing number of female entrepreneurs whose businesses have thrived because of the supportive community Grace created.

In her role as a mentor to so many female entrepreneurs, Grace Lever reviews all the different ways members of her community can take advantage of the same principles of doing utilized by Grace each time she successfully built a seven-figure business in less than a year. The female entrepreneurs who have worked with & The Doing Academy frequently cite Grace’s entrepreneurial philosophy as though it were a mantra: “Stop dreaming and start doing.”

Grace continues to be the embodiment of that entrepreneurial philosophy. After earning her degree in business and event management, Grace immediately set out on the entrepreneurial journey that has allowed her to live out her lifestyle dream while helping others do the same. Now living with her husband and their puppy in the wine region of Adelaide Hills, Grace remains committed to empowering female entrepreneurs and travels all over the world to share her wisdom through speaking engagements.
