Welcome! I'm Stephanie Sammons.
I'm a financial entrepreneur, Certified Financial Planner, digital business and marketing consultant, author, speaker, and singer-songwriter♬.
I know that sounds like a lot huh? Some of my friends call me a modern-day Renaissance woman. 🙂
The truth is, I do a lot of things, but at the core I'm a strategic thinker, a communicator, and a writer. I love finance, investing, and numbers but I also love writing, creating music, playing the guitar, and other artistic things. I also love people and making connections!
I'm in the process of relaunching my financial advisory career (coming soon). But this time I'm doing it on my own terms. I spent 15+ years with firms like Merrill Lynch and UBS where I served as a financial advisor and wealth manager to high net worth individuals. I also held multiple leadership roles at these firms including branch manager, sales manager, and regional manager.
I've been out on my own since 2009 as an entrepreneur doing consulting and all kinds of fun projects. I published my first book in the fall of 2015, Linked to Influence, and it went on to become a #1 best-seller on Amazon. It continues to rank well across multiple entrepreneurship and small business categories.
In 2016 I wrote a handful of new songs and decided they were worthy of recording. I visited Nashville six times last year and worked closely with some incredibly talented singer-songwriters to hone my craft. This will be my second official “EP” which I recorded at Austin Signal Studio in Austin, Texas. The new tunes come out in March of this year and I'm super excited!

My work has been featured by LinkedIn, WSJ, Investment News, Journal of Financial Planning, Forbes, Entrepreneur, Dallas Morning News, Social Media Examiner and many others. I've also been a speaker at conferences and events such as Social Media Marketing World, FinCon, Social Media Success Summit, Agents of Change the LinkedIn Success Summit, Podcast Movement, and others.
I've been a lifelong athlete and played college basketball as a point guard (I'm 5'4″) for a Division I (Boomer Sooner!) and Division II university in West Texas. I practice hot yoga 3-4 times a week, work out with a trainer, bike, hike, and even play a little golf and tennis.
I'm a step mom to two awesome boys (16 and 14) who were adopted from Russia. My parents have owned a local health/nutrition store for more than 20 years. Fitness, health, and well-being are super important to me. But, I'm also a major wine enthusiast! I love the science and art that goes into making a beautiful red wine.
Last but certainly not least, I am a Texas gal. I love cowgirl boots, blue jeans, and the Dallas Cowboys!
