Stephanie Kemp is an award-winning choreographer, teacher, mentor, author, and no-nonsense CEO. A self-proclaimed business junky, her obsession with the service industry catapulted her early success from start-up to scale-up, proving service—great service—is relationship driven. She believes it is the responsibility of mentors, coaches, and business owners alike to help everyone in their organization see past limitations, set high expectations, and earn their worth. 

Not a fan of the "everyone gets a trophy generation," she is outspoken and direct about her views on competition and complacency. Her motto "Do Better" is her personal and professional theme song—a song that she plays on loop in her daily life.

A serial entrepreneur, she has used her time-tested techniques, strategies, and lessons to not only sustain her seven- and eight-figure businesses but endure and thrive for over three decades. Her specialized "Wealth" formula has allowed her to live a life of abundance on her terms in alignment with her goals and her dreams. 

Not a mathematician, scholar, or MBA, she is proof positive that you too can build a successful life filled with passion and purpose, and her message to fellow entrepreneurs is, "You're not selfish." A life showered with personal and professional achievements is not only possible—it's imperative.
