Official Bio

Ebonie Allard is a certified Coach, creator of the Misfit to Maven Way and the Value Filter™ system, a Misfit turned Maven, an Adventurer, and author of Misfit to Maven: From ARGH to AHHH. Before she was seven years old Ebonie had lived in a house truck, on a commune in France, in New Zealand, in Ireland, and in several homes in England. She had been bathed in a sink, had a pet goose called Lucy, and had police in two countries looking for her. And she hasn’t made her life any more ordinary since! Ebonie has never had a 'proper job'. From selling homemade cards when she was 14 and working in the film industry, to starting one of the first virtual assistant companies and her current work as a Coach, she’s been self-employed, a freelancer, a business owner and an entrepreneur. Her recent book Misfit to Maven: From ‘ARGH’ to ‘AHHH’ is more sex, drugs, and misadventure than other business books. Part memoir and part workbook, Ebonie helps readers build a life that feels as good on the inside as it looks on the outside. Ebonie dedicates her days  to inspiring and enabling self selected 'Misfits' to feel less ARGH!! and more AHHH!!! It is her mission to help you live a fully rounded, three-dimensional, successful and self-governed life where you can thrive.

or even shorter:

Ebonie Allard is a Coach, Author #Misfit2Maven and host of the @AdultingwithEbonie’ Podcast. She helps Misfits unleash their superpowers & become POWERFUL

Here are some of the topics I could talk about all day:

  • Going from ARGH to AHHH: How to move from feeling like a misfit who’s a square peg in a round hole and feeling overwhelmed and isolated to gaining clarity, confidence, courage and calm.
  • Sovereignty, Autonomy and Relationships: How to be true to yourself, independent and a great team player. The very best way to do KICKASS and KIND as an individual and as a team.
  • Food and body image: Ebonie has experienced life both as a hedonistic party girl and a green juice slurping yogini and has now come to embody a more balanced place in the middle
  • Mental health: While many think it’s controversial, Ebonie does not see mental health conditions as a disease like diabetes or alcoholism but rather something we can suffer from like a cold or flu. In fact she finds the former paradigm for viewing mental health to be incredibly damaging. However, she think it’s really important to open up conversations around mental health as it needs as much space and attention as our physical health does.
  • Creativity & Uniqueness: when people’s creativity gets stuck, its often because people are looking externally rather than looking inward. Ebonie can speak about how using your unique value filter to put yourself back into your most turned on, expansive version of yourself will always put you back into your creative flow. 
  • Spirituality & Business: How to create internal and external wealth. (because they are not mutually exclusive!)
  • Burn out / break down and Resilience: Ebonie has experienced both. When she left her career in the film industry to create My Girl Friday, a virtual assistant business, she was still being ruled by the word “should.” She built the business from the outside in and rather than creating a lifestyle business that could evolve and grow with her (which is what she has now), she created a business that ruled her life and led her to complete burn out. She can talk in depth about the inside-out approach to creating a fulfilling and sustainable work / life integration.
  • How to find your Purpose: Why most people get the idea of “purpose” wrong and how people can go about finding theirs
  • The power of Playfulness and Authenticity: How to have more fun in business and be in integrity at all times and why it’s more important than what you’ll learn in any business training.
