Hi there, I’m Stephanie. Thanks for visiting!
I left my 15 year wealth management and corporate leadership career in 2009. Since then, I’ve launched two online brands, built a successful “niche” online coaching and training business (WiredAdvisor.com), and become a reputable digital business strategy speaker and writer. In a nutshell, I completely reinvented myself to create the life I wanted to live both by force and by choice. I’ve had plenty of help and guidance along the way, and I’ve also made some mistakes!
I wouldn’t trade the opportunity of building my own brand, business, and life on my terms for anything today. You shouldn’t either. In fact, you should start right now building your own brand, your business or career, and your life on your terms! In case you weren’t aware of it, we are in the midst of a personal digital media revolution. Anyone can create success on their own terms in today’s digitally wired world. It takes tons of hard work and dedication, but it’s completely affordable, achievable, and very well worth it. The time to claim YOUR space is now! Don’t wait. Don’t let this incredible opportunity in time pass you by.
