“I had been looking for a mentor for myself and for my business for some time, as I have stringent expectations for a mentor, both as a person and as a business professional. The first time I met Stacie in person was during her speech at an annual Wedding MBA convention a few years ago. I was impressed by her presentation, the way she communicated with people and the environment she built in her company. There is no doubt that Stacie is very successful. She possesses a treasure chest of knowledge about the wedding industry. Stacie is strikingly passionate in the work that she does. Since I started in the mentoring program, there have been many changes in my business, as well as in my personal development. She has helped me to look at my business from different angles and to more highly value the work that I do. Working with Stacie has also helped me to finally take the jump to do what I was considering doing for the last 2 years – she shook me up and brought a breath of fresh air into my business. What I also value about our relationships is that we are both tremendously open, honest and straight forward with each other – I believe this to be one of the essential keys in a successful mentoring relationship. Working with Stacie has opened new doors and possibilities for me and for my business. I am very excited for all of the wonderful changes to come!”
I met Stacie the same way all of my clients meet me - on the internet through a website. It’s scary when you have to trust someone you’ve never seen in person, someone whose hand you’ve never shaken, someone whom you’ve never even had a cappuccino with! So like my brides do when they want to know about me, I did some research, I googled her, checked out her website, linkedIn and facebook pages, asked around about her and what I discovered was not only solid expertise in the wedding industry but also smart professionalism and consistency making up the foundation of an unmistakable brand. This is what inspired me to join Stacie’s mentoring program and learn from her experience as an entrepreneur. But what inspired me even more and drove me to travel all the way to Mexico to attend the ISS Experience and finally meet her face to face was the admiration I had for Stacie as a woman. She has successfully embraced a dynamic career and a full-time family commitment, both of them growing and prospering side by side.
I’m very motivated by Stacie and how she continually renews and innovates and I look forward to learning from her and following in her footsteps on the road to smart success with my business.
Hiring Stacie Francombe has been one of the best business decisions I've ever made. As a small business owner it is overwhelming to wear the many hats required of us on a daily basis. With Stacie working with me I know that I am always moving the needle one step closer to achieving my goals. Stacie has assisted me in examining all aspects of my business and has located an untapped revenue stream. She is like having 2 right hand people at your side. She is constantly thinking about your business and coming up with steps to improve the ways you run your business and ways to increase revenue. It's not just a weekly call where she gives you a "to-do" list. We both hang up with things to do and we keep each other accountable. I like to say she is running two departments in my company. Departments that I simply did not have the skill or time to run. Stacie is helping me take a hard look at my finances to figure out what spending needs to be cut and where monies need to be allocated. I feel like I have goals and a clear direction of where my company is headed. With Stacie by my side, we working hard to take my business to the next level and I can't wait to get there!”
