Her journey from start up, to sale to a Fortune 200 company, to roles on senior executive teams and Boards, and then the decision to depart for life in Costa Rica, where the real learning began.
Like you, business expert, consultant and author Stephanie Bogan has experienced the intense ups-and-downs that come with running a successful business. She has enjoyed all the common definitions of success, and helped others to achieve it. Then at the height of her career, she left it all behind and moved Costa Rica. Here, her avid interest in success habits, leadership principles and behavioral and neuroscience came together with her business background to ignite her message about the possibilities of limitless success and happiness.
What is the “spark” that separates those who achieve unlimited success, wealth and happiness? Is it talent and skill? Drive and ambition? Pinstripes and power ties? Is it reserved for a select few? Are successful people smarter, better, luckier, or harder working? Or, is there a different story?
With two decades of business consulting and executive coaching, and most importantly, real-life, in-the-trenches business experience, Stephanie’s views are radically different. She shares with listeners what she’s learned about what really drives success, wealth and happiness – in life and in business – and how to overcome the hidden challenges, obstacles, and barriers that limit us all.
Stephanie, known as a “savvy, sassy, straight-shooter” who tells it like it is. She’s known for her uncanny ability to get at the heart of what’s really happening, quickly re-frame perceptions and deliver keen insights needed to inspire real change and deliver results. Her passionate yet down-to-earth style brings real-life stories, practice examples and unforgettable candor and humor to her work. She’s well known for business and coaching skills, and her ability to connect with top entrepreneurs and executives in ways that propel them to new heights.
Stephanie founded and was CEO of Quantuvis Consulting, a top financial services business consulting firm, for nearly two decades before selling to Genworth Financial (Fortune 200) in 2008, where she joined the Executive Team. In 2012, she left Genworth for a year of travel abroad. She then joined United Capital Wealth Advisors as SVP Client Experience & Enterprise Development, helping deepen and scale the firm’s offering nationally.
In 2014, without warning, at the apex of her carrer, she left it all behind and moved to Costa Rica with her family. Here, Stephanie says, is where her real learning began. She pursued her avid interest in success, leadership and behavioral and brain sciences seeking to understand what drove her, and her success. Along the way, she learned that each of us has unlimited potential, and that each of us determines our level of success.
In her 20 year career, Stephanie has authored The Power of Practice Management (Bloomberg Press), wrote a column for Financial Planning magazine, has been named an Industry Influential, spoken at nearly every major conference and remains a highly sought after speaker, business strategist and executive coach. She currently writes the Limitless Adviser column for Investment News. In addition to her coaching work, she is a recognized industry thought leader and consults to various corporations, boards and private equity firms on trends and opportunities in the industry.
