If you've got an inspiring story to tell, and you are building a real business like my featured guests, I would love to have you on the show. Just complete the form linked below, and come on over and join the Real Deal Business Coaching group (it's free!), where we showcase our members on this show.

One of the agendas of this show is to talk with small business owners who’re not only growing their businesses, but also battling the notion that there is a silver bullet.  And if you haven’t found it yet…you’re doing something wrong.

Sensational success stories give us the inspiration to take risks (often a good thing), but MOST of us, will have more organic, pivot-infested “slow growth” and we should celebrate that. Because it’s not easy. 

Stephanie has a way of preaching reality and slow growth and alignment while also amping you up and not bursting your bubble.
