Stephanie Hayes

Business Strategist & Coach

I’m a 25-year business veteran and mentor for experienced, hard-working entrepreneurs like you, who are ready to level up in business and in life.

I design personalized, totally aligned business models that suit who you are, how you want to work, and that give you the straight path to success – however you define that.

You don’t have time for vague, might-work theories, and I have zero patience for marketing-guru-in-a-Lambroghini nonsense. (We’ll get along just fine)

You want to take control of your business and create a deliberate path to your next stage of success. Side-by-side, I help you create a detailed, actionable, and incredibly specific game plan, so you can build quickly and become excited and confident about your next steps.
