According to the usual script, Stacey should be living on the streets, in jail, on drugs or dead. She ticks all the boxes when it comes to risk factors, having experienced no mum throughout her life, bought up in housing commission, child sexual abuse, aged 13 and living in a shed, 15 and pregnant, 19 with 2 babies and homeless, 21 with 3 kids and living in a domestic violent relationship.
But remarkably Stacey managed to defy the odds in a spectacular way, through following her passion.

For Business: Weather you have a small business or a massive empire, you will have the same problem most corporations face; lack of motivation in your employees.
Stacey will show your employees how to find passion and purpose in their role and how to have them understand that simply by working hard now they can reap the rewards in the future. If a 21 year old can bring up 3 kids, work full time as an employee and be nominated for a business award from her employees , than anyone can learn how Stacey managed to stay focused, motivated and on fire throughout her 4 years with the company.
They can then be inspired and see the rewards Stacey has reaped from the early hard work she put in. Sometimes all it takes is an outsider to motivate and inspire your employees to ignite that burning desire again.
For Schools: Stacey knows all to well the effects home life can have on the youth of today. Not only did Stacey experience this in her own life but also that of her 16 year old son.
After years of living in a violent relationship and having her children witness this trauma, Stacey found her then 13 year old son smoking marijuana, drinking alcohol, wagging school, suicidal and in frequent trouble with the police. It wasn’t until Stacey herself changed her life that she also encouraged and with success managed to inspire her own son to change his life from living at the bottom of the black hole to now working his passion with animals and also running a business.
Her son has not touched any drugs, alcohol or been in trouble with the police in 3 years. She understands what the youth of today needs and she is here to empower them to live an extraordinary life no matter what their circumstances.
Stacey shares her views on overcoming adversity, to feel inspired and empowered to take your dream to the next level to make it happen.
Her message is to share that no matter what obstacles in life are thrown at you, you can still make your dreams a reality.
