Our vision with this magazine is to help you create your Life By Design for yourself. Being an entrepreneur is a rewarding journey, but not at all an easy road to travel. A lot of us are doing it on our own, with nonsupporting families and friends. 

We are here to be your family. We want to give you the skills and the motivation to make all of your dreams come true. This magazine is designed to both inspire and give you tangible take aways you can implement into your businesses! 

Below are links to the monthly Letter From The Editors, in these you will see the heart of the women who run this magazine. 

May you be fulfilled, successful, and flourishing.

At 18 years old, Stephen and his soon to be wife, Angela, started a photography business. They photographed 48 weddings in their first year. At 19 years old, they were making 6 figures shooting weddings and decided to start their second company. Today, Stephen owns multiple corporations with over 87 full time employees and over 66 part time employees. After he suffered a stroke in 2015, Stephen knew life was not just about making money but leaving a legacy. He plans to leave that legacy through his upcoming book, “The Lazy Millionaire”, his weekly podcast show “Success Talks”, his coaching & mentorship program and his Stegela Success Mastery Online Courses. Stephen’s mission is to help as many people as possible to live fulfilled, successful, and flourishing lives!
