226: DARING to Take Big Leaps and Risks in Your Business with KRYSTEL STACEY

July 13, 2022


Today on the podcast, we are privileged to introduce you to Krystel Stacey. Krystel Stacey is a business strategist and wedding planner who is going to talk about taking daring risks in your businesses to level up and move yourself into the next space that you want to be in. She has made some daring risks in her business that have taken her to the next level and some that haven’t and today she is talking about both.

We met Krystel Stacey at The Hybrid Co. where she was doing a keynote speech and asked the audience to take a risk. So we decided to step up and ask her to be on the podcast. We can’t wait for you to listen to this interview!


Take action. Do it today. Do it now. Don’t wait. And don’t think that there’s going to be an opportunity that  is going to present itself. Create the opportunity. I dare you to act on one goal today. Get it done, do it now.


What’s your favorite tool in business? 

My favorite tool is probably FloDesk. I love it so much. I feel like aesthetically it’s so pleasing. It’s so easy to create and then reach out to clients with and I just love it.

What’s your favorite pre/post wedding snack? 

I love chocolate covered gummy bears.

What’s your favorite creative pump-up jam? 

I am a big Taylor Swift fan. I know there’s a love, hate relationship there. Some people are a hundred percent in some of us a hundred percent out. I am in and she gets me pumped and excited. 

What is your favorite thing to do outside of your business? 

Outside of my businesses, I am a painter. I love to paint and I love watercolor. 

I am a big beach girl and I live on an island called Coronado Island. I live on a little island so visiting the beach is what we do almost every weekend as a family if I don’t have a wedding. 

What’s the best education you’ve learned from?  

I had a business coach and he was super honest to the point of even hurting my feelings, but it was so beneficial and so good for me to have someone who didn’t sugar coat and try to please me. 

They were just super honest. So I would say if you can find someone who’s going to educate you on the backend of the industry. And willl be super honest with you instead of just appeasing you or making you feel good about yourself, that’s the way to go.

What is one daring leap you’ve taken in your business?  

Writing a book was a pretty big daring leap for me because growing up I had dyslexia.

I was not considered the smartest girl at school. I was on ASB and student body president. I loved that side, the social side of things, but the side of sitting down and writing a book or writing a novel was not something on my list. But it was a huge leap in something that has really turned out to be a game changer for me.

What is one thing you feel like you’re really great at in your business? 

For me, it’s visuals. I’m really good at making things look really pretty. The visual side of business and anything having to do with aesthetics pretty much, I’m really good at that.

Do you have any announcements/offers for our guests today? 

Yes, definitely. I have prepared a sweet 16 of business and it’s a PDF and you guys can do a self-assessment on what areas of your business you need to focus on now to really move the needle and push you forward.
