The Jilly Academy

The Jilly Academy is OFFICIALLY in Session!


If you follow me on Instagram (which I hope you do 😉), you may have noticed that I’ve been teasing something really BIG for the last month or so. I’ve been sharing lots of behind-the-scenes videos and if you’ve visited our new website, we revealed an even bigger hint on the homepage. Well, I’m beyond excited to let you know that The Jilly Academy is OFFICIALLY in session!

Welcome to The Jilly Academy!

What is The Jilly Academy?

The Jilly Academy has been a goal and passion project of mine for YEARS. So, let me explain what exactly it is! The Jilly Academy is an online platform curated for small business owners, entrepreneurs, aspiring influencers and anyone who is wanting to learn the ins and outs of brand strategy, influencer marketing, content creation, photography, digital storytelling and so much more. It’s filled to the brim with all of my tried, tested and true systems, proprietary templates, methods and trade secrets!

The Jilly Academy will be kicking things off with the launch of THREE online courses (with many more to come!) designed to build off one another to refine, expand and take your business to the next level!

I’m SO excited to share what we have in store for you this Spring! Course One: The Brand Strategy, Course Two: The Content Creator and Course Three: The Growth Accelerator will all be released a few weeks apart to allow you to work on your business in a thoughtful, strategic manner. 

How The Jilly Academy was brought to life

Before we get into the details, I want to share the backstory on how The Jilly Academy came to be. 

Most of you may know me from my reality television days, but over the last 10 years, I’ve also embarked on various successful (and some not so successful) business ventures including The Jilly Box, co-authored a #1 bestselling cookbook, built an engaged community of over 1.3 million followers, collaborated with many of my dream brands and have grown a team I am so proud of. Over the years, Team Jilly and I have experienced so much, refining our practices and methodologies with each lesson learned. 

I’ve always dreamed of sharing that information with other aspiring influencers and entrepreneurs in my community. In fact, we have been asked countless times by small business owners, entrepreneurs, aspiring influencers, friends, and even some family members “How do we do what we do?”. We have been dreaming up a way to share all of our experiences, insider information and MAGIC, and we are so excited to officially be able to bring ALL of this to life for you! 

With taking on such a BIG project, we knew we needed all hands on deck and reached out to Angela Osborne and Taryn Herritt, Co-Founders of The Atelier Collective, for their help and expertise to bring our vision to life. Without their help and all of the efforts from Team Jilly, this project would not have been possible!!!

So, for the first time EVER, we’re pulling the curtain WAY back on this business. Everything shared throughout these courses stem from my personal experiences and lessons learned. The Jilly Academy is NOT your typical business course, but instead, a direct reflection of what has worked so well over the years for Team Jilly. We’ll be sharing all of our best-kept business practices and you’ll hear exclusive, never-before-told stories from our journey over the past 10 years!

  1. This sounds absolutely amazing and so insightful! I can’t wait to find out more info & to learn more from you! Congrats Jillian + Team Jilly!!! ♥️

  2. Neat Idea. What is missing is around if starting a business is needed and how that works. There is a lot of blogging content out there but nothing around the business part. Especially for us Canadians.
