I’m Stephanie. After spending 15 years of my career in the corporate wealth management industry, I set myself free. I went out on my own and never looked back! That was in 2009. I became a digital entrepreneur and took charge of my career.
What I do today is teach and share my insights on how to become a digital leader, grow your online influence, build your business, and create personal wealth in a wired world.
The digital tools are pretty powerful these days. What makes them powerful is that they are accessible to each and every one of us. Not only can you build your own digital platform to share and teach your unique insights (and sell your products and services), but you can grow a loyal and trusted network who will amplify your voice.
Isn’t it time you created your own destiny to achieve success on your terms? I’m sure glad I took that step. I have more joy in my life, more time with my family, more control over my day, more money in my bank account, and more fun!
No matter where you are in life or what you do for a living, building your personal digital brand and a trusted network WILL come in handy. There will come a time when you will need one or the other, or both. Build both. You won’t regret it. I promise.
There are lots of ways to build an online business, but if you want to build something sustainable that will grow your wealth, you need to look beyond immediate gratification. It takes time to build your digital platform, grow your influence, and monetize your efforts. You also need to be smart about how you structure your online offerings. Every step that you take along the way should be contributing to your long-term wealth.
More on what I cover on this site: The topics I discuss on this site include digital leadership, online business, entrepreneurship, building online influence, blogging, social media and social networking, creativity, and…building sustainable personal wealth. I’m also a huge fan of leveraging LinkedIn for business and marketing, so you’ll find lots of insights about the world’s largest professional network on my site as well.

In 2009 I had two choices; continue to climb a corporate ladder that had no top, or start over. I chose to start over . I spent 15 years as a professional financial advisor in addition to holding corporate leadership positions at both Merrill Lynch and UBS. I’m a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and very experienced in wealth building and wealth protection strategies. After leaving Merrill Lynch, I launched a successful blogging and digital strategy platform for financial advisors and financial firms, Wired Advisor.
Today I love what I do, do what I want, and help inspire others to become successful online influencers. The digital frontier is waiting for you. Get out there and claim your space!
