Great leaders don’t happen by accident! Great leaders take the time to develop themselves because as you develop yourself you develop your business.
Our mission is to challenge and inspire entrepreneurs and their leadership teams to build a better business by creating amazing work cultures. Whether you’re a leader of a team of one (yourself!) or the head of large team, Fire Up & Lead will help you achieve your business goals by focusing on HOW you succeed, because:
We deliver results customized Consulting programs, Team Training and Workshops, as well as our popular Fireside Chats Virtual Mastermind program.
Fireside Chats is a membership program offering networking, training, and business mastermind sessions.
Time spent building relationships through business networking is exponentially valuable. You’ll likely find the next customer, collaborator, or business referral partner if you just put yourself out there! We meet once a month for 90-minutes of open networking with chat members invited to highlight their business at each event.
Running a successful business requires constant learning and innovation. Yet so often we’re pulled into the quicksand of day-to-day operations and we can suddenly look up and it’s been weeks, if not months, since we’ve tended to improve our business acumen.
Fireside Chats offers additional support with monthly, virtual training sessions covering a spectrum of business development strategies and leadership topics. There is so much value offered in these concentrated training sessions. Applications are open for members to present.
Step away from the day-to-day hustle and meet up with other business owners who are riding the same roller coaster you are! Our small group mastermind session offers an opportunity to leave ego at the door and creates a creative space to share and lean on your fellow members. Whether it’s the next big decision you’re facing or not quite knowing how to solve a recurring issue, your mastermind group will become your informal board of directors providing needed perspective and support. You’ll leave each session with a refreshed confidence and a clear focus on what actions you need to take next.

Encouraging. Organized. Leader. These words define Stacy Whaley.

Her background includes leadership development, organizational management and sales for a digital marketing agency. She excels at customer service, operations, management, and business development and has an unusual love of spreadsheets and data.
Are YOU ready to get Fired Up & Lead?
As a manager for a couple of family medicine clinics we desire to create the best environment for our patients and our employees. My life has been impacted in a positive way with her abilities and our employees feel it as well. Her understanding of how people work, her ability to help me identify different types of employees, and the tools and resources she offers me are beyond measure. Stacy is well rounded and full of valuable information to make whoever she works with motivated to be better than they were yesterday. She has helped me create systems that keep me on task, supports me in areas I need to improve, and stays upbeat and motivated to continue to make a difference for all of us.
Stacy has an uncanny ability to identify and elicit each team member’s strengths and allow them the opportunity to use then in a collective goal while reinforcing the individual’s effort, creating an environment in which people are made to feel valuable but also accountable for their own contributions. Our group has become much more collaborative and cohesive, yet has been able to individually identify and hone in on areas in which we would like to grow and improve. Stacy also has a wonderful manner of helping to shape a work place culture that is both supportive and rewarding but is based on the basic paradigms of effort, application of ones’ resources and a willingness to serve as part of a team. The symbiosis with which we now function is absolutely due to Stacy’s keen ability to observe, analyze and report back her findings in a way that is both absolutely accurate but sensitively shared such that we all feel a sense of ownership for our individual and collective work product.
As a small business owner of a busy and ever expanding medical billing company, I have looked to Stacy for guidance with management of all the aspects of my business. From staffing issues to employee time management, she has been extremely knowledgeable and helpful with tips, techniques, and advise. Even though we only get to meet up virtually a few times a month, Stacy has always been a phone call away for any support I need. I truly believe that she has improved my business, employee productivity and time management for myself and my staff. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for guidance and support with leadership, staffing, coaching, etc for their business
Fireside Chats Masterminds is a great sounding board and is a positive group whenever we meet. When I face challenges, I know there is an hour where I can let my guard down and not worry. The energy I take from each mastermind meeting helps me get things checked off my list.
