Alana Arvanitis - Founder & Leading Self-Love Ambassador

Alana Arvanitis is a blend of creativity, a passionate lover of life, an intuitive self-love coach and the creator of The Self-Love Movement. Alana facilitates events which inspire, empower and support women with the devotion to Self-Love.

Through her own life adversities and the tight grip society had placed on her as a growing teen, she was forced to take the journey of Self-Discovery. “I hit rock bottom, in the darkness of sadness & grief, pushing my body to the extreme just in order to survive. Then, I collapsed; I had nothing, nothing to give myself or anyone around me. My only choice was – me. And I chose the path of self-love, happiness, freedom and purpose.” From the day she realised that this was her only option for personal success, Alana began to see the true power of Self-Love, the inkling of magic that knocked on her door and filled her life with abundance, opportunities and immeasurable love.

The more Alana chose herself, the more she unlocked the infinite gifts she had to offer the world. “If you don’t go within, you go without.” Her deep passion for people and teaching led her to the creation of The Self-Love Movement, a social movement dedicated to the power of Self-Love, connection, inspiration and empowerment and support.


Emma Parsons - Founder of The Life Architect Movement

“Once you have the right mindset, your possibilities are endless!”

Emma is the founder of The Life Architect Academy and is known as The Life Architect.

Helping women make a permanent change in their life and to stop dealing with the ‘fluff’. This allows them to stop self-sabotage and grow their business with ease.

Emma is passionate about empowering women to unlock their full potential and build the life the want by

ï Understand and Clear the emotional blocks that are keeping them stuck.

ï Discover the stories that are holding them back, and work on rewriting them.

ï Clarify what’s important for them and stay focused.

ï Deal with triggers and resistance when they pop up.

Emma moved to Brisbane 6 years ago with her husband and 3 children. Within 18 months of being here her husband had an affair and so the divorce proceeding started. She is now the happiest she has ever been with her 3 beautiful children.

Before leaving the UK Emma had worked as a Project Manager in the Construction industry and has had her own business for the past 5 years here in Australia.

As a mindset coach & mentor, Emma believes that it’s not the strategy that is going to make you successful, but YOUR mindset behind the strategy that’s going to release your full potential.

She wants to teach others to do the same!


If you’re a female entrepreneur or thinking of owning your own business, this Meet Up is the perfect setting to meet other women in the same boat. This is not a networking group – we’re here to have real conversations and make real connections.

What do we mean by real? Well you know when you walk into a room and feel welcome even when you don’t know anyone? Or when you share experiences with someone and they say “me too!”? How about when you share tough times with someone and they don’t try to give you the advice to fix it but rather - they just get you. This is what happens at League of Extraordinary Women Meet Ups.
