I love to tell a good story
– with the goals of sharing knowledge
and solving a pain point.

“Ryan Flickinger was barely 3 months old when his parents sat staring cross-eyed at IRS Publication 926, a recipe for parental colic otherwise known as Household Employer’s Tax Guide. The Flickingers are one of many couples who have concluded that paying for professional help beats spending hours mastering tax rules that apply to anyone who employs a nanny. Neither wanting to master the system or run afoul of the law, they chose Breedlove & Associates.”
“There has been a 45% rise in women entrepreneurs from 2007 to 2016, showing that women are not just diving into business, but doing so very successfully.”

“Women consistently state that lack of female role models is a core barrier for deciding to launch or grow a business. According to the Kauffman Foundation, it is one of the top reasons holding women back.”
“Are you thinking big enough? Do you have what it takes? Are you ready to go ALL IN? I recently caught up with Stephanie to discuss the lessons she has learned as an entrepreneur. Her advice applies to all entrepreneurs, but her new book includes specific advice for women.”
“I asked Stephanie to tell me about a time in her life when she made a major change. Here’s the story she shared…”

“The Breedlove’s newly renovated residence is the epitome of lakeside luxury. Recently, over 6 months, Stephanie sequestered herself in the family game room with some giant paper storyboards and extra tables. Recharged by the nature and wildlife outside, she buckled down and wrote a book, All In: How Women Entrepreneurs Can Think Bigger, Build Sustainable Businesses, and Change the World.
