After spending most of my adult life taking risks I had no business taking, and failing more times than I can count, I finally came to the realization that I have no clue what the hell I'm doing - and neither does anyone else! I'm Stephanie Llewellyn, and I find myself here - a mid-30s single mom - reflecting on the stories and lessons that have led to this place, more at peace than i've ever been. "Who Does She Think She Is" is your weekly dose of inspiration, real-life lessons, fascinating women, big dreams, and a whole lot of hardships, heartbreak, and unfiltered humor. This show, and this journey, is our proof that we don't need to follow the rules to be successful, we just have to be brave. So come along for the ride, and let's do this, all of this, together.
Ep 23 - Action Over Perfection
So many of us carry things we haven't dealt with or haven't had the opportunity to work through, throughout our lives and they show up at the worst possible time, in areas we would never expect. For some, perfectionism is a badge of honor - a standard they hold themselves to. But what they may not realize is, that perfectionism is actually not helping... it can be hurting them. Entrepreneurs and business owners have watched the growth of their businesses come to a screeching halt because of perfectionism. Create the thing, start now, think about it, and refine it later. Join the conversation in this episode - what is stopping you?

Ep. 22 - How to Own Your Bullsh*t
There are a lot of things that can hinder our success. Some of those things are out of our control, but most of us know that... sometimes WE are the thing standing in our way. Self-awareness is one of the key traits of any successful person - I mean.. the ones with integrity and a functioning conscious anyway. When was the last time you talked to yourself? When was the last time you identified a familiar path that has held you back before that you are about to walk down once again and decided this time to stop... instead of moving forward? From my inspiring meeting with Jenna Kutcher in the CEO school Community to the lessons I've learned on my own over the past year... this is where we start.
That's what this episode is about... let's call ourselves out right now... together.
Ep. 21 - The Beginning Of The Beginning
When I launched my company one year ago, I knew I wanted to help other female business owners but I didn't know in what way exactly. Fast forward to today and it has evolved from a small Virtual Assistant business created just to make ends meet, into a thriving 6-figure business that focuses on helping women find their version of unconventional success. This episode is the beginning of a shift in the Who Does She Think She is Podcast and I can't wait to, not only bring you the unlikely stories of success from my guests, but also the tools and roadmap to help you create something of your own, you won't want to miss it!
Ep. 20 - Everything You've Ever Wanted
Some kids grow up wanting to be a Nurse, a Doctor, Scientist or Teacher... but what about the kids who want to grow up to be a Singer, an Actress or Director? There has always been a kind of automatic eye roll that happens with a sarcastic, "Good Luck with that", attached to it. Patricia Mercado knows this feeling all too well but she is not the only one. In this episode Patricia and I talk about our childhood struggle with eating disorders, her journey to finding herself and the life of her dreams in New York City as an Actress, and how her daughter has given her the drive to overcome anything or anyone that stands in her way.
Ep. 19 - The Life Skills That Matter
As adults, how many times have we run into real life situations where we wish we would have been taught how to navigate them. How to start a business, how to invest, how the hell do I do my taxes and what is a Roth IRA anyways? Right, we have all felt this way about something at one time or another. We feel like we missed out on a huge part of our education because it wasn't offered to us... Enter Emily Knight, Founder and Creator of Entreprenew. Entreprenew is a curriculum for High school students to learn real life skills, start a business, and enter the real world with a completely different perspective, power skills and a bigger vision for their lives. Listen now to hear about how Emily brought this idea to life, and how you, or your child, can be a part of it!
Ep. 18 - Bravery, Belief, and Building Something Meaningful
Have you ever had a crazy idea that you just went for, without overthinking about everything that could go wrong? Maybe you have a hobby or something that lights you up and from time to time you think to yourself..."I wish I could do this for a living" Well, Kristin Gambaccini has brought both of those scenarios to fruition and I am so excited for you to hear her story! Her bravery and belief in herself, the example she is setting for her 8 children, and her ability to be who she is in every situation (for better or worse according to her) while keeping her family first without sacrificing what brings her creative joy is beyond inspiring. From DIY Blogger with a $0 home renovation budget and a sense of humor to being a regular segmented guest on The Kelly Clarkson Show and having her own daytime show on the Armstrong cable network, Kristin is blazing an impressive rainbow colored trail, on a mission to build a home, a brand, and a life, that will foster creativity, support her family, give her dreams life and show her kids that they can do anything, as long as they have the belief in themselves and confidence in their ability to figure things out on their own. If you need a little motivation to get moving on your goals, this episode is for you!
