In the journey to finding success, there always comes a time of adversity. During this challenging season, people often find themselves looking for inspiration and much-needed advice, especially from experts who have been in their place once. This is something that Heather Stone knows well. After all, she also faced her own difficulties and problems before becoming a nine-figure entrepreneur and FinTech executive. Now, the respected figurehead in the entrepreneurial scene is pursuing her passion for helping others thrive as a motivational speaker and mentor.
She is the host of the Mentors and Moguls Podcast, a show where the most successful individuals share their secret formulas and strategies that allowed them to turn their passions into dream careers. Numerous public and private figures from various sectors, including CEOs, entrepreneurs, pro-athletes, artists, and creatives, have been on the program and provided much-needed insight to listeners and audiences worldwide.
In addition, Heather is also a staunch advocate for women’s empowerment, as evidenced by the ventures she started that support the cause. The inspiring woman started GameAbove Capital, an organization with an impressive 50 million funding that promotes and aids women and minority-owned sustainability businesses. She is also the co-founder of Capstone Holdings Inc. and several other enterprises advocating sustainability and STEM.
In keeping with her passion for mentorship, Heather has spent the last three years compiling and condensing key points and highlights that she learned over her 30-year career. Then, utilizing her extensive knowledge and expertise as a CEO, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, she created Unplug & Rejuvenate 2023, a workshop and retreat all rolled into one, which will take place from January 25 to 29, 2023. It is a series of masterclasses, courses, workshops, and immersion adventures that helps people ignite, jumpstart and fast-track a path to confidence and success.
Aside from her love of seeing people grow, what motivated the thought leader to develop these intuitive programs and ventures is her vision of seeing more women as movers and shakers. She intends to fill the void she experienced when she was only starting, when there was a significant shortage of strong female role models and mentors.
Moreover, the devoted mother hopes that her efforts will pave the way for a new generation where women like her daughter will have unrestricted access to resources and also learn from successful women in action.
As the insightful mentor moves forward, she plans to continue expanding her mission of empowering others through speaking engagements and mentoring. On top of that, she remains steadfast in her goal of developing more full immersion adventures and retreats such as Unplug & Rejuvenate 2023 that are designed to help women step out of their comfort zones and understand that they are capable of accomplishing anything they put their mind into.
As Heather Stone excellently said, “If you’re serious about making a change and creating a new battle cry for your personal or professional life, then you’re in the right place. You don’t need to wait for permission to step out of your comfort zone and do it.”
