We had the good fortune of connecting with Stephanie Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Stephanie, how do you think about risk?
Stephanie Speaks, LLC derived from me taking action no matter the outcome. I know and believe I want people to feel the freedom I live by and the abundance that embraces my life no matter the current circumstance that I may go through. I had to learn to step outside of my comfort zone and push myself beyond my limits to be more visible to get the response needed for my business to jump off to higher heights. I wouldn’t be who I am today if I didn’t take risks. I am proud to say I am 2x International Bestseller Author, Transformation Coach, and Speaker, along with a business owner and founder of a nonprofit.

Life revolves around decision-making every day, and sometimes that includes taking risks. You won’t know the outcome until you step outside your comfort zone, go through the process, and do not tarry and give up amid the process, and you will see that you have grown with wisdom, abundance, and freedom. Through taking risks, you are being refined in character and building brain muscle so you can withstand the hugest obstacles. It’s all about mindset so you can take bold, confident steps towards your future; your purpose depends on it.

Risk-taking can cause fear, and fear does not reside here. When you hear the word risk, it can automatically make you freeze; fear starts creeping its ugly head. Fear keeps you in bondage. Fear blocks you from moving forward towards any direction. Fear can cripple you from your future. So, therefore, when you hear the word risk, flip the word from Risk-taker to action-taker. Taking action places you in a position to be more willing to take the first step without fear. You are allowing faith to play a prominent role in your life. Faith takes you further than you can imagine. Have faith in yourself as you hold all the keys to the doors and create the life you desire. Keep building the steps to your home, which is purpose.

What should our readers know about your business?
Stephanie Speaks, LLC is a coaching program where I help individuals break through their challenges, and visualize their true potential. So they can see how powerful they truly are as they begin utilizing their gifts, talents, and purpose to maximize their freedom and abundance.

I also offer many other elements where I help individuals openly brand themselves as an author, and sell the books with confidence where they can branch off as speakers, coaches, and professional experts on the topic of choice. I assist with building the social media platforms, building the email list, and creating the first website that will help them expand as a first-time business owner to build the tribe—allowing them to live out the wildest dream.

The main lesson I have learned is writing out your vision so you can have tunnel vision (opinions, naysayers, negative nancy’s cannot throw you off your goals). Continue to push with consistency and persistency because motivation is not always there. To be authentic at all times and live out your purpose, and as you walk in purpose and stay within alignment with your purpose, it will indeed serve you, and favor will be upon you as you step out in faith at all times.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love to be around nature and water, so a good day for me is going to the beach, spending the day with a picnic, catching up, talking, with laughter in the air, and connecting with others.


Going to the botanical gardens, having brunch, and end the night with a game night and movie.

I love to travel and be spontaneous, and I will get up and go by the drop of a dime. Hop in my car and travel. I have made plenty of road trips with my three kids. Plus, I like to google different things to do within the area. I recently moved to San Antonio, Texas, and I travel back to Florida every chance I get, that’s by driving over 20 hours.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to thank my Aunt Sandra Williams, for always supporting me and being there standing in the gap since I was a child, you are truly appreciated and your support truly goes a long way and means the world to me. I also want to thank my sister Jessica Williams for my calls of panic, for being my sounding board and bringing me back to my base level, plus for listening to me talk about business and opportunities. I also want to thank my previous coaches, Lesley George, Amonda Rose, Dr. Sharon Arrindell, Mildred Mason along with Daughters of Zion: Women of Destiny for believing in me, seeing my potential, and taking the time to teach me to live out my own skillsets and talents; to master them so I can expand my business and impact the world at large and step out my comfort zone and find people in my tribe that I can connect and collaborate with. Finally, I want to thank my supporters for believing in me and staying faithful as I grow in business. I honestly wouldn’t be where I am today without yall love, encouragement, and contribution.

Books you should check out when it comes to risk-taking are “Who Moved My Cheese” by Spencer Johnson and “I Moved Your Cheese” by Deepak Malhotra, these books give you a pretty wide perspective to step outside the box and learn to take action in your life.
