Entrepreneur + Consultant

A serial entrepreneur with one exit, mom, business strategist, and EdTech founder. Yliana is changing the game for millennial entrepreneurs and forcing you to ask yourself, "how good can it get?".


hi there,
I'm yliana

An entrepreneur who turned my self-funded side projects into a million dollar business. Collaborating with nationally recognized brands, I've served over 2,500 clients to date. My journey from HUMBLE beginnings to successful ventures showcases my commitment to innovation and excellence in entrepreneurship and in life.

How do I do it? By trusting my gut, always spotting the whitespace, and seizing the opportunities to be of service to others — all with an incredible amount of drive, purpose, and persistence. As a mom and cancer survivor, my resiliency knows no bounds, fueling my journey through challenges and victories.

I launched and sold my first 7-figure company in the beauty industry before turning 30. Inspired by the need for more inclusive spaces and resources for female entrepreneurs, I then co-founded Femology. This venture filled a crucial gap in conversations, resources, events, and community for female millennial entrepreneurs. Recognizing yet another void, I launched Smart Beauty Pros, the premiere EdTech platform for beauty professionals, designed to help them collapse time and accelerate business growth.

Now, I channel my experience and insights into empowering other entrepreneurs, self-starters, and founders through my immersive coaching. I live life by design, and I'm here to show you that you can too.
