Dr. Stacie NC Grant: Legacy of Faith Grows #Faithpreneurs & Entrepreneurs Ep. 81

Climbing any success ladder takes constant prayers, a good plan, and resources. A successful person will see how her ideas come full circle once a vision elevates rapidly. Meet Dr. Stacie N.C. Grant, Empowerment Specialist, Event Strategist, TV Media Host, Author and Speaker. She has witnessed an incredible turn-around in her life and business. And, as mind-blowing as it is, Grant can no longer hide the sizzling details. Grant believes wholeheartedly in the mantra: Prayer is the key. Faith unlocks the door. She knows unfathomably that these are the primary ingredients needed behind every #Faithpreneur and entrepreneur to see their businesses excel. She recently opened up about two life events that eventually led her in front of thousands of people globally. She remembers her first-grade teacher speaking to her mother about some behaviors on the first day of school. The teacher began the conversation with positive statements but went on to explain one problem. She mentioned how Grant gathered all the classmates and began teaching the students their ABCs. Speaking began for Grant at a young age, and this gift continued to nurture throughout middle school, high school, and college. Her personality and gifts began to flourish abundantly through more experiences and encounters while growing up. But, there is one other memory that sparks and ignites her spirit to leap daily. It’s the sweet, savory recollections of her grandmother’s solid walk of faith in God. This bond was unique because Grant tuned into her gifts of prayer, speaking, and service to others through the actions of her grandmother. “God was designing my life all along. I didn’t understand the real purpose, but now things are clearer to me,” she remarked. “Faith was the legacy my grandmother left us.” And, Grant continues to build on this legacy, which has carried her name, gifts, and business to the masses. She felt challenged through this legacy of faith to be an entrepreneur and settled down the years of work into one movement: #Faithpreneur. Her life and business took a pivotal turn at the heart of Times Square--the place where millions gather yearly to bring in the New Year. Grant’s new year from a legacy of faith began with her first tribute dinner celebrating her grandmother on her birthday in August, and leading prayer on a new platform. She holds a thriving prayer call every Saturday that connects with people ranging from the states, various countries, and islands. “We pray over the intentions of what we desire to do, and for God to orchestrate the plans. This prayer call is no pomp and circumstance. It’s a time, where everybody shares,” stated Grant. Moreover, the outcome of the celebration and turn out was mindblowing, causing her to launch #Faithpreneur Weekend to continue the legacy of her grandmother. Many of the prayer callers register for the conference. Grant defines a #Faithpreneur as a “faith entrepreneur who exhibits grit, determination, and resilience to establish and monetize their business idea.” Grant teaches now the importance for every #Faithpreneur and entrepreneur to not only pray but understand the real purpose of growing a niche in business. “I thought everybody was my market,” she said. By recognizing this mistake, she began to clean up her marketing strategies and approach. Grant used an inquiry-based technique. The critical questions to niche-down are: Who is my avatar? What’s the trend in my business? Who comes and returns to me for services? What’s the pattern in my services? “I know it wasn’t gender-based in my business. It’s faith-based,” Grant acknowledged. Faithpreneur Weekend 2K19 guarantees that all attendees will depart with a plan of action for their businesses. Individuals are there to create “sustainable Revenue, Resources, and Relationships.” With a massive, organic reach over 1.3 million, Faithprenuer Weekend shows steady growth yearly.
