One trait that I really love in a person is authenticity. I love when a girl is her true authentic self whether you know her strictly on Instagram or if you meet her in person. I cannot tell you the number of times I have looked up to someone SO MUCH because of the person they showed me on Instagram only to be let down when I met them in person.
I knew Staci Hissong on social media vaguely before meeting her in person. She was an emcee at an event I was attending so I started following her because that's, like, the laws of feminism! So, anyway, Staci's Instagram was a breath of fresh air...she was a girl who showed up with her hair up in a real messy bun (you know, not the kind that looks fussed over for two hours). She was snapping pics with her pup or of her sweating from a hardcore kickboxing sesh. And, better yet, she posts quotes and informational posts of things she believes in. She isn't trying to be something she is not which is perfect because she is just awesome.
Staci is a Certified Professional Coach and a Certified Life Coach and owns "Successfully Sassy Coaching" where she offers One-On-One Coaching, Group Coaching and Workshops, and also does Speaking Engagements. In addition, Staci started her podcast, "Seriously, Let's Be F***ing Honest!" where she talks about some real shit (remember that authentic thing we talked about earlier?!). Staci is as real as they come and is not scared to put it all out there on her podcast. Mad respect, girl!
Take a minute and learn more about this fun, sassy, spitfire and learn what makes her who she is!

Why Did You Decide To Start Your Business?
I decided to start the coaching business after being a therapist for many years. I wanted to focus on Women's Empowerment and helping each and every woman understand they have every single thing they need in life within them and they just need to learn how to uncover the bullshit stories that are keeping themselves stuck. And that led to the podcast!!!

What Does Your Typical Day Look Like?
I don't have one. Part of why I started running my own business was because routine does not work for me. I have intense anxiety and was getting migraines and panic attacks almost daily when I worked a normal schedule. So now, the only routine things I do is sleep in, read every day, snug with my schnorkie Sugar, and kickbox!
Who Are Some Women That Inspire You? (Globally and Locally)
I love Jen Sincero's books. But ultimately I look internally for inspiration. I feel when we focus on others so much and what others are doing we get into comparison mode and it fucks with us! So I cheer for other women and their success, but only I can inspire change in my life!
What Was One Huge Business Flop or Problem That You Had to Endure and How Did You Handle That?
My coaching business is not nearly as successful as I wanted it to be. It hurt for a while, like I did not have the "magic" that I show others to find. Basically, I realized I was not showing my offerings or my gifts in the right way, in my power. I learned about Human Design and embodied that. I am a Projector and to find our strength we need to rest and be invited. Hence the podcast popping up and now sharing it all in that way!
What Accomplishment Are You Most Proud Of?
