Entrepreneur, Coach, Author, Speaker

Hello and welcome to my site!  I am excited about walking with you down your path of entrepreneurship.  Where it is a path of hills and valleys it is also a path of discovery, fulfillment and victory.  My love is not only for business ownership but for helping others bring their passion to profit.  Everyone is passionate about something either personally or professionally, but are they living and working that passion?   I ask my clients all the time, “If you were not getting paid in your business, would you still want to get up and conduct business every day?”  If the answer is yes then Push Your Passion!

In order to live that passion and drive it to completion you have to take a good look at self.  Many business owners start a business without doing a “self exam”.  Am I a people person?  Do I like sales?  Do I have management skills? Or do I just like to cook, so I will open a restaurant.  We need to take a look at ourselves to see if we have the mind, body and soul to walk, skip, and run down the path of entrepreneurship.

Success Stories

Stacey Banks-Houston is a dynamic, engaging speaker. She has an amazing ability to connect with her audience and stay connected for the duration of the presentation. I have had the pleasure of attending several of her seminars, the material she has presented has had a deep impact on my business and how to build and expand my brand. She has shared her expertise in such a way that when you leave her seminars you feel empowered to take the next steps in pushing your purpose. Her presentations reveal key strategies for discovering your purpose and using them to effectively build and brand your business.
Sonia "VEGAN VICKI” Steele
During the eight months that I worked with Stacey, I had the distinct pleasure of hearing her speak on a number of occasions. I heard her speak before the Helen Gordon-Davis Centre for Women at a Board Dinner, during various seminars and webinars, as well. Stacey has an impeccable attention to detail and an innate ability to engage an audience. When standing before a crowd, she commands attention with a sense of humor and wit. She is very relatable while still maintaining respect. Even while not directly in front of an audience, she still appealed to listeners by asking questions and really listening to what the speaker had to say. Always, her statements are well thought-out, and especially during a presentation. She is considerate of audience’s time and I always enjoyed listening to her speak with compassion and grace.
Martha O.
I approached Stacey to be the guest speaker at my Women of Vision Luncheon because she was intelligent, energetic and authentic. She was incredibly knowledgeable regarding the ups and downs of entrepreneurship because she herself is an entrepreneur. Stacey personally helped me start my own business and then inspired and educated many others at the Women of Vision Luncheon. The result was an increase in understanding of my social media marketing as well as my sales approach to potential customers. One thing that I liked about Stacey is her firsthand experience with starting a business from scratch. She provided encouragement and practical advice. I found my overall experience working with Stacy to be very beneficial both professionally and personally. I would recommend Stacey to anyone who is in need of mentoring and/or coaching for their business.
