My passion is helping others succeed! My new venture, StacieStyle 4 U allows me to be behind the scenes working to promote small businesses and telling their story, adding personality & wit! In my roles on the WBB Board, I have the pleasure of seeing my passion come to life by helping others succeed and grow with WBB!

Joining WBB has been a key to my success! WBB connects me with wonderful women to collaborate with and to learn from. I have grown greatly, both personally & professionally, by being involved with the Women’s Business Bridge.

Through my business, UXL, my mission is to build leaders, promote positive change, and enable businesses and individuals to transform their dreams into reality. I strongly believe in the importance of giving back which inspired me to begin coaching and share the useful techniques and experiences that I have gathered.

Joining WBB gave me the opportunity to connect to business women in my home community, something I had been unable to do effectively while working in the corporate sector for so long. Volunteering for the board has allowed me to utilize my leadership skills and give to back to this amazing group of talented women.

We are a family owned business and proud members of this community. My husband and I share the same needs and values as our clients. We are business owners, homeowners and parents. We strive to protect all that we’ve worked for and prepare for the future. And we are passionate and committed to helping our clients do the same!

WBB’s “Connect.Learn.Grow” is more than just a motto, it’s the core of this fantastic group of women. From learning and sharing ideas to grow our businesses, to fun events that allow us to let off a little steam, this organization and its members inspire me every day.

My passion is helping people share and preserve their memories. Photos are powerful and can build both relationships and self-esteem, and I’m so lucky that my business, Capture Your Photos, helps people do just that. We provide photo and video services, including organization, custom album design and home movie/media transfer to dvd/digital. I love helping people tell their stories and ultimately touch hearts.

My business has grown up with WBB and I’m so grateful, both personally and professionally, for the women who have been so generous in sharing their knowledge and their friendship. It makes a difference every day in my business.

As the owner of Budget Blinds of Stillwater, I use my interior design as the advantage to help my clients create beautiful views. My “in-home” service brings several brands, styles and colors to you. This includes shutters, blinds, shades and draperies.

As a longtime member and Board member of WBB, I have made many new friends, gained knowledge to expand my business and also learned about how I can use my personality to gain a competitive edge in my industry. Tools I will have with me for a lifetime!!

It has been fun to represent mine and my husband’s business, O’Neill Electric Inc., at the WBB. It gives me the chance to come into the group and promote a business that you don’t see too often amongst a group of women. I’m grateful for the useful business skills that I’ve learned which I can, in turn, use to grow and share our business amongst the community… something I truly enjoy doing!

Joining the WBB has given me the chance to grow professionally and personally as I’ve had the opportunity to learn from so many powerful women. There is nothing better than coming together with like-minded, fun and empowering business-women from your community and be able to share ideas, plan events, and mentor one another!

I love connecting people and presenting themselves with professional looking marketing materials. We do a lot of printing and designing for MANY different industries and our printing expertise ranges from business cards, postcards, flyers up to yard signs, banners, and vehicle wraps. I have been in the printing and signage industry for 15 years. A good layout is key to any design element!

“Before joining WBB I was terrified of public speaking. Throughout my years with WBB I have grown confident in both my business and personal life. I credit this group and all of the amazing friends, customers, and acquaintances to this amazing growth and change. It has been an amazing ride and I cannot wait to see where it takes me. WBB is nothing short than amazing.”
