Stacey Stern Consulting About page header graphic image


You are mission-driven and searching for ways to express yourself and what’s most important to you.

You have a vision for your business, but although you are smart and experienced, you’re unsure how to attain your ideal. You might feel restless or frustrated as you find your way.

Would you love to find someone who not only shows up, really listens, and understands your situation, but who also brings energy, fresh ideas, and a clear path forward?


After beginning my career in publishing, I raised millions of dollars while running corporate and foundation fundraising programs. First, for People For the American Way, a constitutional liberties organization based in Washington, DC; then when I moved to Boulder, for The Nature Conservancy of Colorado.

In 2005 I launched Stacey Stern Consulting with a focus on socially-responsible organizations. For more than a dozen years, I have been delivering strategic communications, marketing, and business development to small businesses and foundations. I also have edited and/or collaboratively written several non-fiction books.   

I had the great pleasure in 2011 of creating and hosting The Stacey Stern Show—Enriching You, a radio show about passion and joy in work and life. Through lively interviews and intimate conversations, I connected listeners worldwide with men and women who make great things happen in film, books, media, business, and social action.

Whether I was interviewing an Academy Award-winning filmmaker, New York Times bestselling author, spiritual luminary, or business leader, we dove deep into what matters to and inspires them. Click Here for an on demand library of shows.

I bring the same enthusiasm and curiosity to each organization and everyone with whom I work.


It’s helpful to know who you are and what you stand for when you’re in business to facilitate that for others. Here’s what my business is about:  

Connection. Deliver insight and excellence in writing, thinking, and strategy to motivated men and women. Help clients tap into and express their innate wisdom and strengths.

Self-Expression. Promote intelligent self-expression by guiding clients to know who they are, honor who they are, and skillfully express who they are, especially through their writing and work.

Growth. Foster my clients’ growth and evolution in work and life.

Accomplishment. Help people develop and realize their professional endeavors and passion projects. Continually think outside the box and inspire this in others. Nurture a deeply rewarding experience for each client by collaborating to create something that often exceeds their original vision.


I dig mindfulness! I was trained in TM (Transcendental Meditation) at the age of 11. 

My oldest son cofounded a tech company in San Francisco straight out of high school. I GET entrepreneurs.

According to StrengthsFinder 2.0, my Top 5 Strengths are Strategic, Maximer, Positivity, Relator, and Intellection.

A proud Duke University alum, I am actively involved in DukeGEN (Duke Global Entrepreneurship Network) and the Duke Women’s Forum.

More high energy than “Zen” personality-wise, I am honest to the core and bring my heart, mind, and integrity wherever I go.
