If you’ve been neglecting LinkedIn as a social networking platform, I want you to know that I’ve met the nicest people there! In fact, that’s where I met Stephanie Danner, a fellow Christian mompreneur and resident of Hampton Roads, Virginia. Stephanie reached out to me via LinkedIn after realizing the many skills and interests we have in common. In no time at all, we were chatting on the phone like old friends! And that’s what I love most about LinkedIn — it truly does a great job of connecting people. Since that first conversation, I’ve learned more about Stephanie and am honored to share her story here with you.
Meet Featured Sister Stephanie Danner
Business Name: CLARITI
Business Description: CLARITI encourages the empowerment of teens and adults by striving to Connect, Lead, Achieve, Reflect, Imagine, Teach, and Inspire others. Our vision is to promote positive perspectives and individualized inspiration through discovery of the authentic self.
Stephanie’s Story: After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology, I devoted twelve years to teaching high school students with special needs. In my thirteenth year, I began working in the Family and Consumer Sciences Department, where I now have the privilege of teaching Life Planning and Child Development/Parenting to teenagers. My experience as a teacher engendered a clearly defined commitment to educate, motivate, inspire, and empower others.
In 2014, I published my first book, Ava, After the Divorce. My hope for this children’s book was for kids to see the experience of divorce as an opportunity to learn coping strategies which would result in a perpetual optimistic viewpoint. Ava offers her readers positive aspects of divorce. I am currently working on a high school “survival guide” for teens.
In 2015, I founded CLARITI, which is dedicated to providing assistance to teenagers and adults who are struggling to recognize their purpose. Our goal is to empower others to discover their value, identify their passion, develop their imagination and level of awareness, and live their best life.
My passion has always been to teach, and my enthusiasm can be attributed to my students’ success. Because of my persistence and desire to thrive, I will always have more to give and more to teach.
“Change your thoughts, and you change your world.” – Norman Vincent Peale
Hobbies, interests, gifts:
Reading, writing, running, yoga, teaching, masterminds, and laughing with my family and friends.
I am a single mother of two daughters, Alyssa (12) and Julianne (9).
Greatest challenge as a mom entrepreneur:
My greatest challenge as a mom entrepreneur is controlling my limiting beliefs and ensuring I spend enough quality time with my children.
Advice for other mom entrepreneurs:
My advice for other mom entrepreneurs is to discover your passion, create a dream, and make it happen. Just do it…Quitting is not an option.
Why I love being a part of the Sisterhood of Christian Mompreneurs:
I want to be a part of a group where women honor both their job as a mother and their true calling. I’m interested in supporting other moms and benefiting from their encouragement, as well. I appreciate the wisdom of women who are already doing what I want to do, and respect their thoughts, opinions, and experiences. I believe the Christian Mompreneur Sisterhood embraces the same core values as I do and will guide me during this new journey.
