Startup Strategy for Beginners.
Because having a brilliant idea is one thing,
but launching a business around it is another.
Hey there, I'm Stephanie.
How would you like the clarity to flesh out your ideas and the tools to create a concise plan that propels you towards your startup vision?
How? I've mastered the art of turning an idea into a vision that can be reverse engineered into the immediate next steps, and this is what I share with you.
Where did I learn this? I used to be a strategist for the world's original startups (Yahoo!, MSN, AOL Huffington Post), then turned my hand to creative entrepreneurs and became completely obsessed with mindset and lifestyle as a strategic imperative.
I now help people like YOU — fledgling & future entrepreneurs — validate their ideas AND design the immediate next steps that will generate momentum towards your startup or business vision.
With a combination of digital media, marketing and creative strategies I can outline a strategic plan that will take your idea from your imagination and catapult it into the real world.
As a writer, author, strategist, traveler, aromatherapist and yogi myself, I know *exactly* what it means to follow your passion, purpose and vision and put your ideas out into the world.
Not everyone wants to be a digital nomad or envisions a billion-dollar IPO, so what do YOU really want and why? I show you how defining your own metrics of success can help you build products and services that not only serve the world but help you align with your own passion, purpose and vision.
The most commonly-skipped aspect of starting up that can be done on virtually zero budget, idea validation can save you time, energy and moolah before you go all in. I show you how to make sure you have customers willing to buy, and how to use the most simple iteration to get it out there ASAP.
Confusion about business strategy, models and plans can confuse the very simple task of creating an airtight vision for your idea. I'll share with you the basic questions you must ask and answer before you proceed with any idea, so you can sense check every idea or project for the rest of your life.
Stephanie has a true gifts for turning thoughts and visions into tangible actions. I am type of person who typically knows what I want, but when it comes to putting my visions and dreams into words or breaking them down into action steps – I totally get stuck and overwhelmed.
My session with Stephanie was simply AMAZING. She has a way of lovingly getting to the core of my vision, breaking it down, and turning it into a strategic action plan.

Stephanie’s pre-work document was really powerful — it gently nagged me with ‘why, why, why’ and demanded I thought much more deeply about why I’d had my idea, who might care about it, how they might respond to it, and what my struggles were.
If you have ‘that thing’ smouldering away at the back of your mind and you need someone to help you shape it into something attractive, doable, inspiring and effective – Stephanie is your guru.Gabe McGrath, The Plugged-In Writer
The most important thing Stephanie taught me was to take the time to validate my idea and do proper research prior to launch.
But not just any research, research that would inevitably deliver the language and tone of all my future communications to my target audience. She is excellent in ensuring you have covered your bases and are steering in the right direction.Andrea Miller, Slindir

The biggest shift for me has been a greater focus on my WHY, as well as on what is in my power to change immediately. I have greater clarity around how I need to spend my time. I know the next stage of my business will be challenging but I feel very clear on my next steps; a weight has lifted and I know I’m moving in the right direction.Gee Foottit, Juice Philosophy
