As I unpack from this weekend, and pull out little treasures from our adventures around Louisville, I am in awe that this even occurred.

It still doesn’t feel like real life.

But it was very real.

We covered some real ass shit. We laughed, I had moments near tears, we posed in pretty clothes, we sweated, we ate… and ate some more, we covered a lot of business and honed my vision, got real and confronted some fears, we relaxed, we drank, we masterminded, and we lived V.I.P.!

I cannot express the magnitude to which this weekend has meant to me. To know I am worthy of greatness, to recognize what it means to stand in my power as a woman, and to be coached, supported, and merely in the presence of someone who fully believes in me and my vision means more than words will ever explain.

You have a gift, and you are a gift, Stacey.

Your ability to meet someone where they are, but also see so clearly where they want to be, and where they can be is remarkable. Then to be able to pull people towards their unseen potential through your coaching; revealing parts of themselves they didn’t even know existed, and then coaching on how to use these newfound gifts… This is nothing short of a gift, and the purest representation of living fully your purpose in this world.

Thank you for all you do, all you are, and all give.

Love always,



My VIP weekend was one I could not have imagined. I set my intentions to be open, honest, and trusting, and vulnerable. I had no idea what would await me.

Within ten minutes of arriving at the hotel, Stacey and I were sitting in a lounge by ourselves. In those ten minutes, I had one of the MOST life altering challenges of my life. From that moment on, I viewed myself and the world around me differently. I was vulnerable like I had not been since an infant. I was calm and serene in a way I’d never felt as an adult. I was confident with perspective like never before.

From that moment, I experienced what it felt like to be loved, important, and taken care of. I was not allowed to be in charge. I was only assigned to receiving. Something my past self did not do well – at all.

I learned how to receive gracefully and authentically. I was allowed to express who I was as a person in this world. I was given time to rest, relax, indulge, and be completely pampered. This opened me to coaching, to self-reflection, and to change.

I am forever changed by this experience and am thankful to have been the very first Stacey Smith VIP. ?


“My initial thoughts about the workshop: Pure Excitement! I love this kind of stuff & any way that I can better myself I’m all for it & every time I take a moment to “feed my soul” I learn so much more 🙂 My Biggest Takeaway: It was strictly Personal. Self-Integrity & what it actually means. I have been thinking about it ever since the workshop & working on “honoring my word as law” I realized that I am not in line, which I kind of already knew, but didn’t understand why or how to correct it 🙂 I know that if I get my self-integrity in line then everything else will follow! Thank you!!! I would tell anyone thinking about attending, that if it’s even a distant thought as to whether or not you will benefit from attending. GO….you will benefit, you will gain some clarity & you will be able to put into immediate practice.” Sheri Strzelecki

“I went to a workshop hosted by Stacey this past weekend. It was AMAZING!! I’ve been coaching with her for a couple months and it was so great to hear how to implement a lot of the things I’ve been working on in my business. She is awesome, her energy is amazing, and she teaches real life techniques and ideas that you can immediately apply to your business. I can’t WAIT to have her in town again to host another workshop for my growing Rodan + Fields team!” Lindsay Dotzlaf

“Before coming to the Net Worth of your Network workshop, I was excited because I knew I was going to learn new ways to grow my business, but I was also hesitant knowing I was going to have to get out of my comfort zone a little bit. I was right about being out of my comfort zone, but I didn’t realize how fun and informative it would be! Stacey gives you the tools you need to change the direction of your business and how to approach the process of growing and expanding your network. By teaching you the process of self integrity, helping you examine your belief system, and diving deep into the Code of Honor, this workshop will open your eyes and motivate you to new heights for your business and personal growth! I highly recommend this workshop to anyone who is just starting out AND to anyone who wants to grow. You will NOT be disappointed!” Stephanie Baylor

“I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect from Stacey’s workshop. I knew she was going to give us tips to help us grow our businesses with our network, but I didn’t know what all that entailed. I was definitely hoping to walk away with more confidence in my own abilities and a way to help get my own issues under control. My biggest take away was that I am nowhere near 100% self integrity. I am always canceling on myself and I now know things that need to be done in order for me to be the best version of myself. I am confident that this will help my business soar like it never has before. If you’re considering this workshop, GO! Do not overthink it. When the opportunity was originally brought up to me, I didn’t even think twice because I thought I had other plans. I am so thankful those fell through and I looked into this workshop a little more. The tools that Stacey showed us have really helped me to get moving towards my goals and realize that the only thing stopping me was myself!” Jessica Kuykendall

“About 8 weeks ago I was invited to attend a training session with Stacey, a life coach. What’s a life coach and will I really benefit from this? Well due to family issues that arose, I was unable to attend. Stacey graciously refunded my money but offered the opportunity for a one-on-one session. I spoke with Stacey one evening for over an hour and I knew without a doubt this was someone I wanted to spend more time with. Stacey exudes so much positive energy that you can’t help but be drawn to her. What she was unaware of when she made that offer was that I had come to the conclusion that this was the year I was either going to make it or give it up with direct sales. This was the start of my third year and although I am having success, it is not where I would like it to be. Worse than that, nothing I was doing felt good and I wasn’t enjoying my journey at all. In fact, I was miserable. So I desperately needed something to change. So, a life coach, why not give it a try. Best decision I ever made regarding my business and my life in a very long time. I don’t really want to tell you about what you will learn or hear on this journey, since everyone will take something different away. However, I will say that you should be prepared to start looking at life just a little bit differently. She has not only given me some true ah-ha moments, but opened my eyes to so many different ways to interpret how people look at you and react to you. Now I not only feel FANTASTIC about what I am doing, but last month was my biggest month ever in business. While many others are complaining about how hard December is for business, I am adding new clients. I know without a doubt I have Stacey to thank for that and I couldn’t be happier. Best investment in my business and personal growth.” Judi Testerman

“These ladies are the kind of people I surround myself with and these relationships have enriched my life more than words or Facebook posts will ever explain. My journey working with a life coach and weekly meetings with the Diva Business School girls is one of the highlights of my week. My journey looks so different today and I’m thankful I was brave enough to listen to my gut and pursue something way out of my comfort zone 3 years ago. And 4 months ago I said YES with my personal coach to work on ME and how I choose to show up in life. I have had my share of ups and downs but I choose to make the best out of everything and thrust forward. We get one shot…..ONE SHOT….at this beautiful life…..and I want to try and get it right leaving no leaf unturned. When you surround yourself with people who love you for YOU and encourage you to be your best self, you can do ANYTHING!!!!! I mean it….you can literally do ANYTHING you want to do when you belong to a tribe of people who believe in you too! The Lord guides my steps and leads me into relationships that help me grow and as I am being pushed to my limits, these girls celebrate that journey with me every step of the way. I am finding myself again and learning about new passions I didn’t even know existed. Pretty sure my life a year from now will look so different and it’s all because I am willing to work to make it that way everyday.” Melanie Shipps
