One of a kind thought leader
I’ve had the honor of working with Stacey before. From that work, I got to see really closely just how powerful her message is. Being an entrepreneur, I’ve always been told to ask for referrals so when I first found Stacey it was an eye opener. Now, she’s turned me into a believer that you don’t need to ask for referrals and this podcast is just one more way to connect with her amazing work!
I really like Stacey's style. Her podcasts are full of practical concepts and strategies that will make people money. I wish Stacey had been around 20+ years ago when I had a sales oriented business. My staff would have loved what she teaches now.
Wish I had this years ago!
Stacey's podcasts are so helpful. I wish I had learned from her years ago when I first started my business. She has a skill at taking complex information on marketing, sales and referrals and breaking it down into easy to understand language and concepts. Every time I listen, major ligtbulbs go off and she helps me to really "get it." This is definitely worth a listen if you're a business owner who is interested in marketing and generating more business. I'm implementing some of her strategies and it is helping us grow. Thanks, Stacey!
