Tickner decided to leave the University of Bath after a year of attending when she realised that her professors who were teaching her about business, had never actually had their own successful businesses. Despite everyone telling her she was crazy, that she’d be making a big mistake, she decided to head off on her own and commit full time to her business endeavours.


Before turning 21, Tickner had already built a successful online fitness coaching business, Strength Feedm where she helped women become stronger both physically and mentally through 1:1 coaching and other digital products like online courses. Tickner started this business without having any funding, while having under 500 followers on social media. She learned everything through podcasts, books and YouTube videos.


After building a following, her empowering brand became a movement in the health industry, and the popular #StrengthFeed hashtag is now used by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Tickner’s quick growth led to working with some of the biggest brands in the Health and Fitness industry, including Gymshark and Alfalete.

Today, Tickner’s main source of income is Impact School, her online coaching and consulting company where she now has more than 40 people employed, including a COO, Sales Director, Marketing Strategist, and an entire tech team.
