Hayley Maker: Co-owner of No Guts No Glory
Biggest professional achievement to date?
Going to work every day to do something that I’m passionate about, in a community that I feel so proud to be a part of.
Most profound/life-changing, business moment?
Expanding the NGNG shop a few years ago was when I realised my dream and potential; it changed my relationship to it and made all the blood sweat and tears of the years before, worth it. It was a risk, but so worth it to be able to support so many artists.
Advice for a young woman stepping into the world from school, college or uni?
Appreciate yourself and value everything that you do. Your community is important, and you are a powerful, unique and wonderful person within it.
If you could make one change to the world?
It would be to promote conscientiousness and care; from the way we treat each other and the planet, right through to the things that we consume.
Nature Wins – because nature does truly always win. We are all natural beings and should listen to how we feel and be in tune with our surroundings and true nature. It runs hand in hand with No Guts No Glory; having that core belief in yourself and following your own path.

100 Most Influential Women 2018
Grow Exeter Magazine launched the ‘100 Most Influential Women 2018’ in Exeter and the region in December 2017 and we received around 500 nominations for influential women from all walks of life; our panel was spoilt for choice and hard-pressed to select only 100 from the talented nominees that they viewed. The Launch of the ‘100 Most Influential Women’ awards in 2018 has perhaps even more value than in any other year as it was just 100 years ago that the first woman was granted the right to vote in the UK.
Women have truly shown that they can shine in any environment, whether that be in the boardroom, teaching our children, climbing mountains, navigating uncharted waters, they can do anything that they set their mind to and we can’t wait to celebrate our own talented 100.
Honouring women in our March edition of Grow Exeter falls in line with International Women’s Day on the 8th March and the 100 finalists will also be featured in this special edition. To see the 100 finalists individually featured, please grab a copy of our March edition by pre-ordering through the link below. We will be publishing each woman online throughout March so watch our Facebook page or the website for their stories.
A huge congratulations to everyone nominated and to the finalists, you are all amazing!
