Motivational speaker, author, businesswoman
"Forget your happily ever after; get your happily ever now." This is the view of Stacey Currie, author of The Rich Get Richer, The Poor Can Too, a busy mum of five children, an empowering and inspirational speaker and a successful businesswoman.
But Stacey Currie's life wasn't always like this. Having experienced the trauma of child abuse, teen pregnancy, domestic violence and homelessness, her future could have been very bleak. Instead, this remarkable young woman has defied the odds and is helping other young mothers at risk to create a better life for themselves and their children.
With such an unstable and at times violent background, Stacey Currie should be living on the streets, in jail, on drugs or dead. However, with extensive counselling, and her own refusal to accept that this is how her life should be, Stacey started rebuilding her life.
With a serious motivation to get results, it's no surprise that, without any sales experience, Stacey Currie singlehandedly opened her business, achieving over $300,000 worth of sales in her first 12 months. She grew a small business from sales of $100 per month to a whopping $100,000 per month - an achievement that won her a nomination in the 2011 Telstra Women in Business Awards.
Stacey Currie shares her views on overcoming adversity and is passionate about helping others to achieve their goals. Her message is that no matter what obstacles in life are thrown at you, you can still make your dreams happen. Her motto is: "If you are powered by passion ALL things are possible."
Stacey will show your employees how to find passion and purpose in their role and to understand that simply by working hard now they can reap the rewards in the future.
Stacey also empowers school students to live an extraordinary life no matter what their circumstances. She knows all too well the effects an unstable home life can have on the youth of today - smoking marijuana, drinking alcohol, wagging school, suicidal tendencies and in trouble with the police.
Stacey Currie is often referred to as "the dynamite" by colleagues, clients and friends for her energy and her impact on others. As proof, she completed her first book, The Rich Get Richer, The Poor Can Too, in a very short 6 months.
Stacey Currie has an extensive media profile and has been featured on A Current Affair, ABC's 7:30 Report, The Herald Sun, The Age and BRW magazine. She is also the Official Ambassador for the Lighthouse Foundation.
