Annie-Mai Hodge, Founder of Girl Power Marketing


Your career path - how did you get to where you are today?

Honestly by pure luck and privilege. I always thought that I would go to university, but I really struggled with my mental health in my younger years and didn’t manage to get through college. And so I never imagined that I could have a career because when you’re in school, it feels like you have to go to college or university to be somewhat successful. My mum worked for a digital marketing agency, and they very kindly let me do some admin work there. After a few years of trying different things out, I realised that I had a strong passion for marketing and specifically – social media. I started Girl Power Marketing as a documentation of my journey into marketing which quickly became an educational resource to help other people kickstart their careers too. After a couple of years, the opportunities that kept coming up were incredible but not something I could commit to while I was working at my other job. So in January, I bit the bullet and decided to take Girl Power Marketing full-time. 

What or who inspired you to create your business and begin championing other women in business?

Honestly? SO many people including my mum, my best friend Sophie and my previous therapist Jane – people who have helped shape the way I am over the years and helped give me the confidence I needed. Organisations like Girl Up, Women In Business Network and AllBright, to name a few, all inspired me to start this journey.
