Confident Woman
Stephanie Ritz
There are 2 main reasons why you likely haven’t started your dream business yet:

^

Fear

Fear that ultimately keeps you stuck exactly where you are — in a 9 to 5 job — instead of going after what you really want — starting your dream business and being your own boss.

^

Overwhelm

You feel excited when you think about starting your business until the overwhelm creeps in. “How do I even set up my business properly and feel confident I can make consistent sales? How do I juggle my job and friends/family while building my business?”

But imagine this…

 

✨ Having a profitable and sustainable business that you love and are BEAUTIFULLY COMPENSATED for.

✨ Feeling fully aligned with the clients, team members and work hours in your business because YOU HAVE CHOSEN THEM.

✨ Starting your day KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT TASKS TO DO in your business and having the right strategies in place to attract and convert your dream clients.

✨ Releasing the stress and anxiety of Sunday nights because you are now doing WORK THAT YOU WERE MEANT TO BE DOING and you are excited to start your week knowing that the hours you put in are for your business. No more corporate grind. No more office politics.

✨ Having the option to WORK FROM ANYWHERE or take a vacation that isn’t limited to vacation hours or your company’s approval.

FEELING FULLY SUPPORTED each step of the way as you start and grow your business with the right strategies and mindset support so that you can become profitable faster, grow with ease and enjoy the process!

 

 

Does this sound like the life and business you want to create?

 

When I started my first business, I felt a fear of judgment and overwhelm of how I was going to build the thing and get clients.

Hi, I’m Steph, a former burned-out corporate VP turned entrepreneur and full-time traveler.

It was from a place of total frustration in seeing the discrepancy of women and minorities in leadership positions that prompted me to start my business. 

Once I started working with clients, I knew this is EXACTLY what I was supposed to be doing and that I would leave the corporate world eventually. And then, the moment came. I’ll never forget that day in March after having a conversation with my boss that I KNEW it was time to create my exit strategy. And that’s exactly what I did.

When I started this business, I took all the lessons I learned from my first business, invested in support right away, and had a completely different experience. I was less stressed, I was profitable so much faster and I enjoyed the process with an abundance mindset. 

I wasted a lot of time, energy, and tears trying to figure it out on my own the first time – and it doesn’t have to be that way for you.

And that’s why I’m deeply passionate about helping you to move through the fear and overwhelm to ditch your 9 to 5 and create your dream business.

A Whole Life Approach to Business!

Many high-achievers in the corporate space have been socialized to separate their personal life from work and it’s the reason why so many of my clients feel burned out and overwhelmed when they first come to me. It takes an extraordinary amount of energy to “turn-off” what’s happening in our personal life, relationships, health, economy, etc… to show up and be 100% present for our work. It’s time to bring the human elements of life back into business and talk about how to navigate what’s coming up for you as opposed to pushing it aside for later. 

Our coaching sessions will be a time to address whatever you feel comfortable sharing that is happening in life that may impact your business so that I can support you with the right strategies and potential adjustments for your business that will best serve you.

Stephanie is passionate, driven and very inspiring and I am so glad I have her by my side while building my business. Her experience, dedication & passion for helping others thrive within their career shines through during every session.

“If I had to say it all in one sentence, I’d say that Stephanie is a fantastic coach in every way! She guided and coached me through several ups and downs keeping me focused on my why and my potential. Stephanie is her client’s biggest cheerleader!!! Her enthusiasm is so encouraging and so supportive. On days that I was at my lowest, she was my lifeline for staying the course. When I first began working with Stephanie, I was searching for an escape route. When I finally left my corporate job, I was not running away, and instead, I was excitedly moving on towards my passion and purpose. I so appreciate Stephanie’s calm, gentle, yet persistent and consistent support and coaching, and highly recommend her!!!”

Dr. Marine Avagyan

Making the decision to start and taking that first step of booking a call can feel both exciting and overwhelming. Most of my clients come to me as corporate professionals with busy personal lives. I know adding “one more thing” on to your plate to create the freedom you are longing for can feel impossible but the results speak for themselves. It IS possible and that’s why my clients work with me.

When I started this business it was alongside my demanding job as a corporate VP for a national company. I was working long hours, traveling nearly every week and supporting my son as a single mom. I’m not going to say it was easy – if it was, everyone would do it. I did the work, I enlisted support and when I transitioned out of my corporate job, I did it with confidence with a profitable and sustainable business. I now travel the world full-time doing work that I love.

This is why I’m so passionate about helping my clients create their own businesses. You CAN HAVE THIS TOO and this is exactly what I help my clients achieve! 

Let’s keep it real…If you’ve read this far you are starting to think about turning your dream business into a reality and the investment.

Yes – you will need to invest with either time or money. You can build a business on your own and invest the time to learn what works but what I’ve learned from my clients is that ultimately they ended up investing in several low-ticket courses that didn”t serve them and software or programs that weren’t actually the best option for their business before they invested with me. All of those small investments started to add up and and they weren’t getting the results they wanted. They would have saved money in the long-run by having my expert guidance from the beginning. 

When you invest in my coaching support, you are getting a personalized strategy and not a “business in a box” solution that many courses offer. I can suggest various software and programs that make sense for your business based on my own experience and having worked with dozens of coaches and consultants in the online space. And most importantly, you will save so much time and frustration in the trial and error of doing it on your own so that you can become profitable faster! 

My client’s programs typically range in price between $2500-$10,000 so they need between 1-4 clients to get a full financial ROI on their coaching investment and that does not include the incredible value of support, learning and growth that they receive throughout our work together. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if this program is right for me?

Before we work together, you will receive a complimentary Assessment Call. During this call, you will share the current status of your professional journey and where you would like to be in the future.

If I feel that I can support your business goals, we will review whether the Intensive or one-on-one coaching program is the best fit to start! You will have an opportunity to ask questions and make a determination on next steps.

How long will it take until I can leave my 9-5?

This will depend on your goals. We will create a customized strategy for you that aligns with your target date. You will have a clear understanding of exactly what you need and what it will take to achieve those goals for your business, your savings and the right timing for you to hand in your notice with confidence! 

What if I've already left my 9-5, is this still the right program for me?

Absolutely! I have many clients in my portfolio that had already left the corporate world when they started with me. Often their goal is to increase profits or scale their business while feeling supported in the mindset and strategy and that is the focus of our work together.

Schedule a complimentary Assessment Call to chat about your business goals and how I can support you. 

How can I best prepare for our coaching session?

Our sessions will take place via Zoom. Find a quiet place with good lighting so that we can see and hear each other clearly.

If you have specific questions or topics you’d like to discuss, please have those prepared and we will address those at the beginning of the session.

Although I will be taking notes for you during our session, you may find it helpful to have a notebook and pen available.

Be sure to complete all of your homework between sessions for maximum results and momentum.

How is this program different from other coaching or consulting programs?

With my signature framework: Strategy, Implementation, Mindset, you will receive the benefits of both consulting AND coaching!

Coaching alone will not provide step-by-step advice on how to get to start and grow your business. Having an expert strategist to guide you through each step based on knowledge and experience is the fastest way to get results!

Consulting alone does not address the mindset blocks that prevent you from taking action and the belief that you can have what you desire. You will feel deeply supported to work through limiting beliefs so that you can show up confidently as the CEO of your business and make powerful money-making moves to reach your financial goals!

I also have a “show up as you are” policy. My clients appreciate being able to join our zoom in their gym clothes or with no make-up or cats in their lap. You don’t need to present yourself in any particular way. As long as you are fully present during our sessions, that’s what matters most.
