We had the good fortune of connecting with Ellis Mae and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ellis, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risk taking has been everything. I wouldn’t be where I am career wise if I didn’t spontaneously move to Australia and then to Mexico and now to America. The magic happens when you push yourself outside of your comfort zone. Change is scary but it’s the only way to truly grow! Your net worth is your network so take a look at who you surround yourself with and decide if that’s what you want in life. If you don’t challenge yourself and force yourself to grow, move and change you are completely limiting your potential. Take that risk, go to that event, travel to that country, say YES more often and watch how your life begins to change.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a content creator and wellness coach. I find my joy in making art and videos and by being in front of the camera. The fact that I can put a smile on other peoples face from across the world just from something I create is the coolest thing ever. What sets me apart from others is the wellness aspect. I’ve created a company called a New Wave (@newwavejourney on Instagram) and I help people reach their health goals and wellness wellness. As a certified life coach, I use these skills combined with holistic nutrition to help people become the healthiest version of them. I also coach my clients on how to make an online income in the wellness field. I am in the middle of expanding it (physical locations, a clothing line, new and improved programs etc) so keep an eye on my Instagram (@ellismaee) because I’m about to release some super exciting news!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If I had a friend visiting me in Miami my first stop would certainly be South Beach. There’s nothing better than beginning your day with a morning meditation and yoga session on the beach. Miami Beach is one of my favourites in the world! I would either rent out a daybed and treat them to food and drinks there or take them to a poolside restaurant vibe such as The Edition, the W, etc.! If they want more of a petty vibe, SLS day club is a great place to start.

If they feel more of a city vibe I would certainly take them around Wynwood and show them the street art and the restaurants. If they are feeling Italian, I would take them over to Primos Italian kitchen in Edgewater.

I would take them on the Miami cruises tiki boats so they can see the city from the water, I would take them to Southpoint pier, I would take them to star Island but mostly I would be taking them to the beach.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Shout out to my grannie for travelling the world at a young age, you inspired me to embark upon this life changing journey. Even though my parents were scared while I was moving to a new place every 6 months, thank you for allowing me to spread my wings and encouraging my growth. Lastly, thank you to all the incredible humans I’ve met along the way! Without my wonderful friends connecting me to awesome people and teaching me the lessons they’ve learned, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
