I speak, teach + coach for one reason: to help talented women GO PRO with their dreams, stepping into the spotlights — and revenue streams — they so richly deserve.
My work integrates life coaching, branding strategy, profit-driven business design + leadership activation. I don’t just want my clients to make money — I want them to make history. And I want them to realize their greatness as leaders + future industry shakers, from day one. ‘Cause when it comes to claiming your life purpose, there’s literally no time to waste.
Scroll to the bottom of this page, and you’ll find glowing reviews from clients + fans.
Or stay right where you are, and I’ll tell you more about how to book me for an interview, presentation or training event.
Highly-caffeinated. Profoundly opinionated.
I love talking about leveling up your life + business — with courage, integrity and personal responsibility. And I’ll talk to just about anyone with provocative questions on the table — journalists, bloggers, authors . . . or audiences of hundreds.

My favourite topics. (Aside from my kids).
: Dancing with Greatness — how to stop hovering around your highest potential, and actively CLAIM it. (So tricky. And so worth it.)
: Micro Moves + Mega BOOMS — how small actions (like releasing one digital magazine) can create huge business ripples (like 1500 new subscribers, in one week). And how to choose your very next move, from zillions of ‘good ideas’.
: The Dark Side of Success — how to contend with heightened recognition, attention, fame + profitability, without losing sight of your mission.
: Extreme Personal Responsibility — how to inspire women, girls and young entrepreneurs to banish the victim mentality once + for all, and truly create their own realities.

I just wanted to let you know that I feel really great about my brand. Today I did a half day of presentations for a company on healthy eating and noticed that my presenting style has all of a sudden totally changed- I feel so much more comfortable and and ease and I’m just being myself! And people are totally digging it! I got such a great response today that this company wants to work with me long term! Yahoo!
I think this all really lends itself to the fact that I really have solidified my brand and it’s seeping into all areas of my business now. It’s so great knowing that I can just really speak freely about how I really feel about nutrition and not really worry that people are judging me or that people aren’t going to agree with me. I think that my “Imperfect is Perfect” mentality really makes people feel at ease. So thank you for really helping me develop the brand that is really “me”!

Before we began working together, I was struggling most with clarity around my ideal client and how to package my strengths and experience in the way that will resonate most powerfully with them. I also really needed to focus my services on the wayI I can do my best work in the world and stop trying to meet the needs of every person I met.
I often worry about whether anyone will dive in as deeply as I need and have the stamina to dig around with me for a while. I have quite a messy mind. I had the feeling you’d meet and exceed those expectations, but you can’t know until you start the digging! (I was right about you exceeding my expectations.)
Since we began working together I have redefined my business focus, clarified the look and feel of my brand, gotten myself a fabulous new tagline!, and am just overall feeling laser focused and inspired to take my business up a level – hell, I’m ready to skip a level at this rate.
I loved having plenty of time to dig in, think through, toss around ideas and then go back and work through it all. I tend to need to talk through things to know what I think of them and with the many-hour Activator session, I had time and space to do that. Yet, you kept us moving forward so that I didn’t get stuck in the muck through that process. It was perfect.
I have clarity and focus that I haven’t had… well, ever, in my business. Within a week I have been able to begin redesigning my website, create a marketing plan and decide where I need to be to let my ideal clients know I am available to help them Be amazing on stage! I just about signed up my business banking manager this morning at the bank, without even trying, I’m so into it now!
I am no longer paralyzed by uncertainty about what to do next because I now know exactly who I’m here to help and how.
I am certain that I will meet my financial goals for this year with this new clarity and the plans in place (which I am excitedly taking action on each day!) and I also know that we’ve built a brand for me that is flexible enough to allow for ideas to show up over time. I’ve always known it is “possible” to build the business and life that I imagined, yet I had lost my connection with just “how” to do that at this stage of my business. My connection to that knowing is Back!
I feel very lucky and grateful that you are out here, doing your good work, and that I get to be a part of it. Knowing that I have you to co-think the issues as I move forward adds a level of confidence and comfort for me that I haven’t experienced before with any other coach. Thanks for that.

The minute I got off the phone with Stephanie I went to work on some of the strategies she suggested to me to spark my business. It was invaluable to have her look through my website and tell me exactly what I needed to change. After pouring so much heart, soul and time to the content of my website, it was so helpful to have her look at it with fresh eyes, someone who obviously knows a hell of a lot more than I do about this! All of her suggestions were, “Yes! She’s right!!” I never doubted a single one of them. Looking at the changes I made I almost kicked myself for not hiring her sooner! The session was a perfect blend of coaching, consulting and truly caring support. She called me out on an idea I had and pushed me to make it bigger. And she was so right with that feeling! At the end of our session I told her, “My whole body is vibrating right now with excitement about putting this idea in action!” Hire her. Hire her now. You can get “feedback” all you want from your girlfriends or even your colleagues, but you won’t get the real authentic and knowledgeable wisdom that you would if you hired Stephanie Pollock.

The Breakthrough Strategy Session was exactly what I needed to find the focus. Where before I was feeling confused on where to start or spend my time, since our session I feel more confident moving forward and I have a clear plan of action. I also know where to spend my time and resources for the maximum results.The prep questions were of huge value! They made me take an objective look at my business and get clear on what I wanted. There was also an intentionality to the questions with regard to what i wanted to get out of the call. I had some high expectations for our call – and stated them. I am blown away by what was covered in just an hour and how all my expectations were met and then you gave me content and advice on top of that!
Without reservation, I recommend your Breakthrough Strategy Session. I am blown away by what we were able to cover in an hour. You were able to assess exactly where I am in my business and give me clear direction on where to go next to get to the next level. You were encouraging but it never felt like a bullshit rah-rah session. Thank you for sharing your expertise – the value is incredible. YOU ROCK!
~ Courtney Webster, Life Coach
As a new business owner who has been struggling with how I’m doing my work and if I’ll ever be able to make money doing what I love, our session could not have come at a better time! Immediately following our first session, I was able to take action towards a short-term goal, and within a week, I had surpassed it! You are knowledgeable and resourceful, and I’m excited to see what else I can make happen now that I have a clear direction — and specific steps — to take. Thank you.~ Karen Pery, Coach, Pery Consulting Group
I was concerned about whether I could afford your service but I knew that I needed business coaching. I was also uncertain that you would be a good match for me, or that you would really understand the concerns I had and what I wanted to overcome to reach the success I wanted. Those fears and concerns completely disappeared within a short time of meeting with you, as I felt that you understood perfectly the difficulties and challenges I was facing, you did not judge me for my failures and shortcomings and you helped me to explore ways to overcome those challenges and recognize that I was not a failure. Since working with you, the number of students and tutoring hours per month has increased dramatically, the number of tutors working for me has increased and revenues have increased dramatically as well. I guess you could actually say that revenues have doubled in fall 2010 over fall 2009. The fears that once haunted me that I might not make enough money to support myself and keep my business going have disappeared. I am MUCH more confident, after growing my business to the level that it is at now, and I expect only success in the future. It is exciting as I look at how I can create more of the results that I want. I believe in myself and my success…and that is all I can visualize now. Your belief in me and support as I was doing many new things led to success and my belief in myself.

I had previously seen a business coach and was not happy with her service. I was scared that I would have a similar experience and that I would waste my time and money. I hesitated because I didn’t want to be disappointed with the outcome. I was so wrong!
I am SO inspired and SO excited to start my new journey with my new business. Stephanie really connected with me and my situation. She got me excited to venture out on my own again and gave me the confidence that I COULD do it AND take care of my family at the same time. I felt like I had thousands of ideas circling in my head about what I wanted to do with my business and somehow Stephanie was able to help me streamline my thoughts and help me focus on my goals, passions and dreams. I had no idea how important it was to have a clear idea of who my ideal client was, but Stephanie helped me figure out who that was and how to start creating a brand that spoke to that ideal client. I am so thankful for that. I had so many ah-ha moments during our call- I am still on a high from out call!
I would encourage any entrepreneur who is lost when it comes to their small business or who needs someone to point them in the right direction or impart some wisdom or clarity on their situation to hire Stephanie. The sooner the better!! She’s a true expert in her field and has already made a huge difference in my life and career.

Stephanie was an inspiration for both my life and my career. In just three short months working with Steph, I was able to define a vision for my career and my new business, develop action plans for launch, get clear on the type of client I wanted to work with, and learn how to maintain alignment with my personal values.Stephanie kept me accountable for meeting my targets and was always there for me when I needed to be reminded of my strengths or to work through a particular challenge. I was able to kickstart my business with confidence and clarity, which helped me land two new, profitable clients in just four weeks. Stephanie’s coaching was a critical component to the success of my business, as well as my own personal sanity. Thank you Steph!

Stephanie is a terrific coach and I have seen amazing results through our sessions together. When I first signed up for a coaching package with Stephanie, I didn’t know what to expect. Today, I cannot imagine where I would be in my life and career without Stephanie.After every session I feel energized, motivated and ready to embrace the day. One of the best things about working with Stephanie is the way she personalizes each of her sessions for her clients. She also has a great way of putting life’s biggest (and smallest) hurdles into perspective.
Through Stephanie’s inspiration and encouragement I am ready to go out in the world and reach for my biggest dreams. I would definitely recommend Stephanie to anyone who was looking to make a transition and live INSPIRED!
I first started using Stephanie 5 weeks ago when I first decided to follow my passion and begin a full time career as a family photographer. In this short amount of time Steph has helped me immensely in launching what I know will be a successful business.Whether it was her great ideas behind marketing, organization and business building or just her unique way to ask the questions that I know need to be answered, Stephanie has been a huge help. I eagerly anticipate our weekly meetings and always walk away from them feeling recharged and ready to go.
Thanks Steph for everything, I’ll be sure to pass your name on to everyone I know looking to improve themselves and their business.
I thoroughly enjoyed this event and would recommend it to any entrepreneur or entrepreneur-to-be. As the event concluded I genuinely appreciated all of the new knowledge I had gained as well as the new unanswered questions I had yet to consider. An invaluable evening–thank you!~ Business of Life Coaching Series participant
