Get to Know the ELITE Women in Business Brand
As Cheryl began to build her own full-time business at the age of 49, she noticed women just like her, over 40 with an empty nest, trapped in a job that felt more like a life-time sentence than a career. As she talked to these women, she saw herself just two years prior, and knew she wanted to help them re-write their story.
Elite Women in Business was the vehicle Cheryl chose to create impact with women over 40 who have put their dream of owning their own business on hold while they raised a family. Even though these women are afraid they have waited too long to pursue this dream, Cheryl serves as testimony that not only is it possible, but designing your ideal lifestyle is possible, too.
When thinking about how to best serve her clients, Cheryl wanted to make sure the women who most needed her help would connect with her mission. She has been able to build a company that serves women who have decades of experience and expertise and can quickly transition that into a profitable business.
Cheryl connects with women over 40 who are overwhelmed, not sure where to start, afraid to take the leap, and just praying it all works out…because she was that women. Just three years ago. Cheryl’s approach is to start where you are with what you have, help women recognize their zone of genius, overcome the obstacles getting in their way, and focus on the end-result. Cheryl teaches her clients how to tackle the biggest goals in bite-size chunks to avoid the overwhelm, to start lean to ensure a health profit margin, and reverse engineer into their dreams. She knows that women over 40 are not about working 100 hour weeks and blowing all their retirement money on a wish and a dream. Cheryl helps her clients focus not only on their business goals, but also the goals for their life.
Using her proven strategies for building a six-figure business in less than a year, becoming debt-free in her second year in business, and experiencing tremendous growth, Cheryl is able to guide her clients on a path for a profitable, sustainable, and successful business.
ELITE is a choice. Cheryl’s clients choose to step up and claim their power, create a legacy, and build purposeful businesses that impact the world.

“I have conducted over 1600 interviews to date on the award winning podcast EOFIRE, where I interview today’s most inspiring interviews seven days a week. Cheryl Mauldin is someone I admire. There are three things I want to focus on with Cheryl. Number 1, I am a huge fan of Darren Hardy. His book, Compound Effect was super impactful for me and Cheryl is an alumni of Darren Hardy’s High Performance Forum, which shows that she learns from the best. Number 2, she invests in herself. She invests at least 10% of her revenue every single year back into herself to learn, to educate and stay cutting edge. And that is so, so critical. And, number 3, she knows her avatar, she knows her perfect clients. It’s women in their 40s or 50s who put their life on hold to raise their family, to raise their kids. Now it’s their turn again to come back and just explode and ignite into this entrepreneurial world because they have so much time and so much energy and so much to give. Cheryl is doing a great thing. She’s going to inspire so many, who are going to inspire so many and make this world a better place.” John Lee DumasJohn Lee Dumas
