Hi, I’m Stephanie!
Healthy, Savvy & Wise is my dream job. I run this site with the sole purpose of providing the tools, resources, and encouragement any hopeful entrepreneur would need for launching and managing their own at-home empires…whatever that may look like.
Or maybe you have no idea that if you start early, you can retire with more than $2 million to your name! We’ve got all of those resources for you here.
So, what’s my story?
I discovered the joy of working from home three years ago after losing one of my daughters, and it saved my life…literally. Read my story here. … Well, that’s part of it, anyway. There’s also a part 2 that’s unfolded this year as well. You can read that here.
It began with an amazing proofreading course (FREE workshop if you’re curious) — which enabled me to start my own freelance business. I quickly mastered the art of connecting with clients on LinkedIn, and the rest is history.
The feeling of accomplishment when you step out of your comfort zone is priceless! At that point in my life, I REALLY needed that win.
Please hear my words to you: Wherever you are in your life… mom with little kids, single parent, grieving parent, empty-nester with aging parents… whatever stage you’re in — it is possible to make a good income with an online business while you attend to the needs of your family!
Not just any business, but a business of your own that you enjoy, which enables you to earn the money you need. I can show you that working from home is far from the work-at-home scams of the past!!
Two years ago, I discovered a fantastic freelance writing course that landed me some awesome writing gigs, and my love for blogging was born. Healthy, Savvy & Wise began as a place to house writing samples for clients.
Six months later, I came across an affiliate marketing course that’s an absolute game-changer, and now this blog is a money-making business of its own. I can write what I choose and still earn money. Major score!
You may notice a pattern here… starting your own business usually requires investing in yourself!
**The secret sauce for any successful start-up is absolute dedication to increasing your skills, and a willingness to never stop learning. There are a few courses I’m totally passionate about. They are the sole reason I’m in business today. Go to the free downloads + resources page to read my detailed reviews!
And if you’ve always wanted to know more about how to blog or what it involves, read my guide right here!
I’m not an elite blogger (yet..wink, wink), but I’m on the path to making a great income doing something I really, really enjoy.
Blogging is not your only choice! Freelance writing pays well, virtual assistants can make bank, proofreaders, social media marketers, artistic types who design logos and printables for bloggers….all can make great money!
Don’t be afraid of big goals… but the right mindset is a MUST
This site is absolutely dedicated to my readers — to give you resources, tools, and encouragement to make your goals a reality. Whether it’s better time management, starting your own business, or simplifying home and money, we have actionable steps to help you get there.
Important message for entrepreneurs and aspiring freelancers of every type: I’d never want to mislead you that blogging or freelancing from home is an easy, get-rich scheme. It’s definitely not.
You’ll want to read this! Blogging Isn’t a Get-Rich Scheme: Reality Check. Several big bloggers contributed to this fabulous post to keep us all in check. It’s a must-read, in my opinion! And even if you’re not wanting to blog, this is a great read for any entrepreneurial endeavor you’re dreaming of.
Just like a regular job, being an entrepreneur with a business of your own takes dedication, hard work, determination, and a willingness to keep learning new things. It especially demands a never-give-up attitude.
Business success and joy is all in the mindset. Remember, you are not an “impostor” just because you want to take the plunge into something you’ve never done before and don’t feel “qualified”. If you wait to feel qualified, chances are you’ll never try.
There will never be a magical neon sign that shows up above your head that flashes “now qualified”…you know? That would be weird if it did…

In case you wanted the real scoop — here are some random facts about me.
- I shook Alec Baldwin’s hand when I was in high school. He was filming a movie nearby–his eyes are gorgeous.
- I have five cats… yes, 5. Don’t judge me; two of my daughters left three of them when they moved out.
- I met my Swiss husband on the dance floor at The Grizzly Rose (Google it, it’s famous). In my semi-spare time, I’m trying to learn German so I can understand some of the conversation when we visit.
- I’m sure I’ve watched Mr. Darcy, aka the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice, more times than anyone.
- The ocean is calling my name, and I’m counting the months until we relocate to San Diego. 23 years of shoveling snow in Colorado is enough for me.
*** Edited to say; In the above where I mention I’m learning German, it’s to visit with his family… not him. We can talk just fine. 😉
