Our responsibilities

Grow & Glow Values

All brands, big or small, personal or corporate have a responsibility to their audiences and customers to take a stand. This is ours.

Primary school teacher → Online educator

Founded by Vix Meldrew

Hi! I’m Vix, the founder of Grow & Glow.

I spent 4 years learning everything there is to know about building a personal brand that launches an online business.

As well as a teacher, I am an avid learner and over the last few years I’ve devoured every e-book, e-course, blog post and podcast episode about creating an online business through personal branding and content marketing.

I understand how difficult it is to cut through the crap and dive into the most useful and effective teachings and resources – and how much time can be wasted!

That’s why I created the Grow & Glow – to provide an empowering and supportive community of like-minded learners and action takers who want everything they need to build a stand-out brand, in one place.

Vix Meldrew


I started my lifestyle blog, VixMeldrew.com in 2014 as an escape from the pressure of my stressful job as a primary school teacher. After some huge life changes, I began to realise that life was meant for living to the fullest. So I got to work on building my brand. I left teaching in 2018 and in 2019, launched Grow & Glow to show other creatives how to build their personal brands so they too can lead a life they love.

Beth Austin

Content Creator

I’m Grow & Glow’s resident content creator and all-around word whizz. You will usually find me whipping up resources for our members, writing our newsletters and chugging black coffee by the bucket load. All whilst listening to an early 2000s playlist, of course! As well as working as a member of Team Grow & Glow, I run my own personal brand in the form of a copywriting business.

Jaide Poppy

Content Creator

I’m an ex Creative Industries Lecturer, specialising in Dance, Drama and Media Studies and now working the freelance life full time. As a Grow & Glow team member, I create Pinterest Pins, Facebook Members discussion prompts, edit The Grow & Glow show podcast, create the TikTok/Reels videos and lots more. In my spare time I love to read, make candles, listen to 80s pop, study Japanese, and drink lots of coffee.
