The three-time best-selling international author and motivational speaker, Stephanie Barnes, is an African American entrepreneur and vigorous advocate for victims of domestic violence. She has been featured in multiple media networks such as Boston Herald, Digital Journal, USA Today Affiliate AZ Central, and CBS Affiliate KUTV 2.
Beating the odds time and time again, Stephanie had to overcome many difficulties in her life. As a victim of domestic and drug abuse and eventually spiraling into depression, she developed a soft spot for all who suffer from abuse, addiction, or depression and has dedicated herself to helping them conquer their challenges.
“Because I, too, was that woman who personally experienced domestic abuse, drug addiction and depression, it places me in a realistic position of knowing exactly the emotional milestones it took and takes to conquer such challenges.”
Stephanie Barnes is known for her authentic, outspoken yet compassionate approach and go-getter attitude to life. From working a regular job in the corporate industry to being a best-selling author, Stephanie has shown tremendous strength of character in transforming herself into the icon she is today. She now spends a significant part of her time empowering women/teen women of diverse backgrounds to rise above their average of being mediocrity and keep pushing for their dreams.
“I am genuinely a person who likes to give and see others win … At the age of 50, I realized that if I took my last breath at that moment, I would be taking a gift with me that could possibly be a prescription for someone else.”
Known globally for her powerful testimony in overcoming her struggles, Stephanie is unrelenting in her efforts to inspire others in their self-discovery journey and show that they, too, can be extraordinary and unstoppable. In an interview, Shawn Fair stated that this quality of grit and resilience was the reason she was handpicked to join his roster of leaders. Stephanie remarks that she is driven by her Faith and self-belief and has always lived by the motto, “I’m Built 4 This.” She believes that, in life, your personal pain has a purpose and that it can be used to serve others in one form or another.
Away from her speaking engagements, Stephanie runs an outreach-resource program for women/teen women that teaches a holistic approach to improve their lives and to prepare them for what lies ahead.
