Hey! I’m Steph!
A born-and-raised Chicago girl, best known for my fun and energizing personality. A retired competitive gymnast, entrepreneur, writer, group fitness trainer, dancer, & CEO/founder of Socially Steph LLC – a company dedicated to helping you shine brighter online. Here’s to starting & having my own passion 🎉every day. I believe starting is always the hardest part. I’ve always been fascinated by people who follow their biggest calling, passion & heart. That’s why I always ask people, “How did you start?” It’s something I feel intrigued by and find great value in learning how someone simply started to believe in themself. The stories people share with me light me up & I love to see others succeed at what they do best. The world need more of that motivation & empowerment to step into who they are.
One of the things I’m often asked is
“Why did you start this?”
For years I struggled with feeling stuck in choosing one thing & finding a fulfilling career I loved. Flashback to 2014 I chased my social media advertising career down Michigan Avenue in Nikes from agency life to corporate life working for Elkay Manufacturing, still stuck & wanting more. I was always driven & motivated to provide my best work possible while still pushing through the uncertainties of where I was at. I didn’t have the answers, but gained the experience I needed to feel confident enough to call it quits and follow my hearts biggest desire.
After several failed attempts working places that didn’t bring me joy and trying to choose just one thing to be in life, I realized that I don’t fit into a box. I made the big bold decision to quit my 9-5 with absolutely nothing lined up except this website, SociallySteph.com. I decided to place all bets on myself & simply believe in what I can create. Launched in 2017 as a blog site & one year later turned into a business. I took the step forward to set out to create a path of my own & do more things I love to empower you to do the very same. Always keeping this one belief in mind:
“Whatever you put your energy into you’ll be successful.”
