A bit about me
Well let's see... for starters, I consider myself really lucky to live in what I consider to be one of the most amazing places in the world - the beautiful Pacific Northwest U.S. - near Seattle to be exact. I was born here and have lived here most of my life. I share a home with my husband and our two silly, lovable dogs named Abbie and Eddie.
Amongst other things, I'm a long-time entrepreneur, newbie vegetable gardener, animal and nature lover, and a bit of a podcast enthusiast to say the least. I love good movies and great books, delicious whole plant-based foods, coffee, red wine, traveling, and doing just about anything fun outdoors.
I'm passionate about a lot of things, and right at the top of the list is teaching other busy female entrepreneurs and business owners how to make transformative daily self-care a reality. I want to do whatever I can to help ambitious women everywhere attain (and maintain) the energy, stamina, and good health that is so vital to performing ones best - in all areas of life. I say... "We've got one shot at this life, let's make it count!"
Let me be clear... I'm not a dietitian, nutritionist, or medical professional of any kind. What I am though... is a person who is incredibly passionate about learning all I can about the power of natural medicine (including nutrition), and holistic self-care in general - I've been doing so for over 20 years now.
Why? Because about the time I hit my late twenties, life decided to give me a good old fashioned b*tch slap - HARD! I don't know if it was meant to be a wake-up call from the Universe (as in... you know Stacee, your not indestructible) or part of a bigger plan (perhaps what I'm doing now) but it was rough - really rough. Up until that time I had always been very healthy, which I'm incredibly grateful for. Then came the day I contracted a wicked virus - the aftermath of which knocked me on my butt for the better part of 2 years.
My once healthy immune system was left seriously depleted. The medical doctors told me that there was nothing that could be done... "you just have to wait until your immune system rebuilds itself - it could take up to 5 years before you're 100% back to normal" they said. That was all they had to say. My reaction? "To hell with that! There's has to be something I can do... a faster way to fix this, and I'm going to find it". And so I did.
That's when my knowledge-seeking journey into the world of natural medicine and my holistic self-care practice began - and it continues. I'll forever remain a life-long student and practitioner - it's just part of who I am now. I learn it, I live it, and I share it. Sharing what I learn has been one of my favorite things to do for as long as I can remember, especially when I believe it can help make someone's life better in some way.
It was a probably a good thing I learned that I wasn't invincible prior to starting my entrepreneurial journey, as I'm quite sure that I would've learned that lesson the hard way at some point anyway. After all, I was a junk food eating, virtually non-exercising, regularly sleep deprived, bundle of ambition and fun - and needless to say, drinking that cocktail always makes one pay sooner or later. It was difficult enough being a full-time employee, parenting, and trying to keep a household going while dealing with that level of illness, so to think about having to run my own business in that condition... I can't imagine. That's why I'm all-in on doing what I can to avoid that, and trying to help others do the same.
Discovering new and different ways to build my busy life upon a strong foundation, one that includes proper self-care, is an ongoing process - not always easy, but always worth it. If sharing what I learn with others enables even one woman to not only avoid the physical burnout that so often accompanies hustling hard and chasing dreams, but also enables her to truly thrive in ALL the important areas of her life, well then... mission accomplished!
Stacee Lynn is a holistic self-care mentor to busy female entrepreneurs. She's been a small business owner for over 10 years, and knows firsthand the physical and mental demands that come along with that lifestyle choice. She's studied, and practiced many healthy ways to navigate that territory over the years, and is now dedicated to teaching her entrepreneurial sisters both the importance of consistent proper self-care, as well as how to make it a reality when they have an already-hectic schedule. Her goal is to help as many women as possible attain (and maintain) the energy, stamina, and wellness required to perform at their best in ALL areas of their lives.
Stacee shares a wide variety of practical, yet transformative self-care tips and techniques, both online and off. She addresses topics like... eating for nourishment, hydration, rest and recharging, restorative movement, stress management, social connection - just to name a few.
Stacee speaks from first-hand experience when it comes to just how powerful holistic self-care is - not only when it comes to high performance and the preservation of wellness, but also as it pertains to healing the body when something goes awry. Over 20 years ago she contracted a serious virus that depleted her immune system for the better part of two years. It was then that she found her way into the world of natural medicine, and began rebuilding her health by applying the practices she was learning about. Since then her knowledge of, and appreciation for, natural holistic self-care has only deepened. Despite having a very full schedule, she's figured out practical ways to stay consistent with her daily practice, and is now dedicated to teaching others how to do the same.
Along her journey, Stacee came to the realization that perhaps the most powerful natural medicine is food - whole plant-based foods in particular. Upon learning about their incredible nourishing and health-promoting properties, she became inspired to study plant-based nutrition - in fact, she earned a certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and eCornell.
Stacee discovered her knack and enthusiasm for educating and mentoring others during her long and diverse stint in the corporate world where she spent several years honing her training, marketing and managing skills. She's been a successful entrepreneur since 2006, and lives in the Pacific Northwest near Seattle.
