Stephanie Camarillo is the President of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), Idaho. She sits on a global subcommittee for membership and serves on the Leadership Council for the National Federation of Independent Businesses. Stephanie started her career working in international business and academia. She had an “aha moment” one day and realized she was building programs in large organizations and could probably do the same on her own as an entrepreneur. With a dream of financial and time freedom in her mind and heart, she and her husband bought a residential cleaning business 15 years ago. Since then, it’s been an unexpected journey. She has learned that success often requires overcoming personal blocks. In order to be a better leader, she had to face and recover from decades of abuse as a child.
On the other side, Stephanie now knows that the secret is learning to live in a place of responsibility and in the present moment. Her 40 employees — most of them single moms with troubles much greater than hers — have shown her the way. She wants to share her journey with other entrepreneurs to help them see how their business can become a vehicle for personal and social change (and make money). She is currently writing a book called SHINE: How Empowered Employees Can Transform Your Workforce, and recently graduated from EO’s Global Speakers Academy (GSA). Stephanie and her family love to travel, and she is working toward expanding her business to different countries.
