I’ve invited Stacy here today because she and her story is an inspiration to entrepreneurs, especially those of us who are building our businesses and sometimes doubt that we are on the right path or that maybe we cant make this goal. Stacy Monroe is living proof that it can be done and she is here with us today to tell us about her journey from being a single teenager mom on welfare to building a successful career as a hairstylist and then owning her own salon and spa. I am sure you will be inspired as I am…
Stacy, you’ve got a lot of great things planned for this next year and your life is just bursting with success. But from what I understand, it wasn’t always like that! You basically built your business from the ground up. From being a welfare mom at the age of 16. Can you tell our listeners how it all started.

Mindset Reset Journey
Recently I have noticed all of my mentors are talking about shifting the way we view ourselves, our lifes can make the difference from a successful balanced business life and one of failure. During the summer of 2015, I went on a 40 day mindset reset and it has changed my life around and my business is starting to turn around because of it. What I realized in those 40days is how much the thoughts in my head were self doubting, you aren’t good enough, too old, too fat, too shy too everything. With all that banter going on day and night, how could anyone feel good about themselves. In the 40 days of recognizing and shifting my thoughts to more action positive thoughts, I noticed everything in my life started to come back to life. I didn’t even know I was burned out and depressed. During the 40 days, this radio podcast was born.Stacy speaks to her experience of growing a business from the ground up and becoming very successful to going through a burnout period and how she was able to turn her mindset around.

In your book you describe what you did to become unstuck: “I began to visualize the kind of salon for which I wanted to be known. I imagined myself working in it. I made a list of every detail—the sounds, the clientele, the products, the sales, the staff, the tone, the buzz. I described how we all felt working there, together as a team again.”
