Hey, I'm Steph.
I am an independent mom, a trusted Mindset Coach and Business Strategist for online female entrepreneurs. I grew up on a west coast island in Canada. I love nature, reading, writing, all things witchy, world travel, listening to people’s stories, interior décor, plants, fashion, music, wine, tea, and I’m addicted to self-development and helping other women create the lifestyle they have been dream of. I freaking LOVE seeing people accomplish their goals!
Now, let me give you some back story to help you get to know who I really am beyond all the surface level stuff, and how I got to where I am now.
In 1982 I was born to a teenage runaway who decided to do the most selfless, loving thing she could do for me. She gave me up for adoption at birth. I was then adopted by a family with three boys and grief in their hearts, as they had lost their own baby girl to a heart murmur at just one year old. While both my birth mother and my parents truly did their best for me, I grew up struggling with a sense of worth and belonging.
As a teenager I was a total shit head. I ran away from home at 13 and got into all sorts of trouble, and got mixed up with some pretty lost people.
Between 15 and 19 I tried on every style and scene possible! I went from hippy dreadlocks to green mohawks almost over-night and at one point I had 6 piercings in my face. I hung out in the punk rock and death metal scene and tried to figure out where I belonged amongst crowds of other misfits and outcasts.
At the age of 19 I became a stripper and continued to strip until I was 30. I actually loved it! I created an alter ego named Demonica. She was confident, sassy and badass! I got to be creative, self-expressive, I felt empowered, I decided how much I worked, I got to travel all over Canada, and people literally handed me hundreds of dollars every day.
At 24yrs old I bought a newly built house and a beautiful white Hummer. I was travelling to Mexico often, partying with legit rockstars, oil tycoons and CEO’s, buying myself nice things and eating out almost every meal. Most importantly, I discovered yoga, meditation, my love for reading, writing and learning, and I became a self-development Junkie. I really started to find myself and love who I was. Life was easy, fun and abundant in those days.
And then the game changed.
At 30 years old I left a toxic long-term relationship, rented out the house I owned, moved to a town closer to where I grew up, started dancing only part time, and went back to school to become a Psychologist. I have always been fascinated with people and had a strong desire to help them be their happiest. So off to school I went. But there was a sudden plot twist. I got pregnant 3 months into school.
In July of 2013 I became a mother to my incredible daughter Thea. (aka the girl that will surely rule the world one day) Thea has been the most incredible teacher in my life. She is also the person that keeps me striving to become everything I dream of. A world recognised Coach, Best-selling author, International Speaker, Self-made Mulit-millionaire, Human Rights Activist, Philanthropist, …and the happiest, healthiest woman and mother I can possibly be, so that I can lead by example for my daughter and others.
3 months after Thea’s 1st birthday her dad left me without warning. He left me with $3000/month living expenses, close to 40k in debt and a baby at 32 years old. So, I did what I had to do. I whipped up a bullshit resume and got a job. I wasn’t willing to live the stripper life as a mommy or drag my daughter through it. And so started my 5 years of struggle in “the real world”. It sucked the soul out of me and I hardly ever got see my daughter. I sacrificed quality time with her for a job that didn’t value me and left me scrounging to pay the bills each month.
Then the perfect person, at the perfect time, came into my life. Right when I needed her the most.
In 2017, I came across a woman who was a life coach online. She had a story of leaving her own 9-5 soul sucking job and creating this life I could only dream of. But there was no way I could come up with $1500 to hire her. I ended up swallowing my pride and asking one of my brothers to lend me the money and thankfully, he did.
While working with her I got really clear on what I actually valued in life, how I truly wanted my life to be, and what I had to bring to the table. My mindset began to shift in more positive directions and I began manifesting becoming a life coach and helping others become who they desire to be.
Fast forward to 2018. I moved 6 hours away from my family so that my daughter could have equal time with both myself and her father. It was lonely AF. I didn’t know anybody in this town but it forced me to go within and I started really doing the work on all my inner shit.
However, the more time I spent by myself and tuning into my intuition and spirituality, the louder my inner voice and souls calling became I knew I had to get out of the 9-5 world and have some time, space and freedom to live my life the way I dreamt of living it!
On April 2nd 2019, I decided to bet on me.
I had found a 90 Day online business program that I knew would help me create the biz I desired, but it was $4800 more than I had. So, while at my desk at work, I applied for a credit card from my bank and got an instant approval for $5000. I legit burst out laughing and almost cried. I instantly signed up! 2 minutes after that I got called into the office and let go. I was a single mom with no back up plan and not even receiving child support.
I packed up my desk with shaky hands, walked out to my car and sat in it in the parking lot for a few minutes. I waited for the tears, the embarrassment and the mental meltdown to hit me. But it didn’t. Instead I suddenly burst out laughing. Suddenly I realized something. Getting fired from that job was the universe trying to redirect me, like GPS does when you take a wrong turn. Uni has always had my back. She just gave me what I had been asking for! “If only I didn’t have to work 40hrs a week I’d have the time and energy to build my online biz” well, now I didn’t! I asked, I prayed and I received.
I truly believe my spirit chose every single experience in my life, and they have all made me who I am today, and have led me to my higher purpose. Every challenge has made me the resilient, driven, compassionate, empathic and wise woman I know acknowledge and take pride in. My experiences are what have lead me to become the leader who will help millions of women see their own path, trust themselves, and live their best lives!
I have an intense desire (that even keeps me up some nights) to inspire, serve, guide, teach, motivate and encourage other momma’s and biz babes, just like you, to take the leap and learn how to leave the fear, debt, scarcity and the chains of a 9-5 life behind.
Now that you know my story, you can see that I am no more special than you. The only difference between me and the girl who is still only dreaming is that I was willing to trust myself to show up, shine up, and do the dam work!
Girl, you deserve to live that lifestyle you daydream about, and it really is possible for you! It would be my honour to be a part of any woman’s journey to her own greatness!
I love you
