HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

A HEART OF GRATITUDE

What a precious season to take time and give thanks for the many blessings of our lives!  As I sit here writing this email to the thousands of members of Solavei, I can’t help but thank God for the blessing of new friends, BIG IDEAS, family intimacy and the privilege to live in a country that offers us the chance to set our own boundaries for success.

Isn’t it funny how we put so much effort into a day, when, in actuality, it should be the season of lifetime.  Nonetheless, this year, I am blessed beyond measure by the amazing joy to be a Founding Member of Solavei and a part of a cause worth celebrating.   As I reflect on the many blessings of my life , I want to stop and say “Thank You” to the people who have helped me become the woman and leader I am today.

I Am Eternally Thankful For:

My Intimacy With God -  I live, breath, work, sleep, dream and hunger to know that my life honors the one who gave me life.  As the source of all I do and all I ever will be, I honor God as the ultimate Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of my life.

My Husband (Larry Wallace) -  When you live with someone for 15 years, you know them like no one else on earth.  That is why I can say, with absolute certainty, that I am married to the most incredible man I know and a leader worth following.   His love, honor, loyalty, wisdom and leadership in our home, along with our faith in God, is what makes me wake up every day believing I am unstoppable and able to move mountains.

My Children (Payton & Alexia)-  I remember the day I first saw their precious faces and I suddenly knew a depth of love that is indescribable.  Holding them in my arms, I would sing, “You Are So Beautiful To Me” and could hear the voice of my heavenly Father say, “And that is exactly what I feel about YOU!”   As my love for their daddy grows every single day, I can see how even our love for each other has enabled them to know LOVE and become role-models of that love, joy, peace, hope, and compassion for others.  I see their father and THE Father’s love in them daily.  I am eternally grateful to know that they are the seed of legacy God will allow me to sow into the future.

My Parents (Ron & Donna Wuerch) -  I think back on all the years of sowing into my life and my heart overflows with gratitude for my mom and dad.  What would I be today without their constant love, encouragement, wisdom and leadership?  From daily vocal training, stage coaching, ministry insight and rigorous leadership development to never missing a single basketball game, sitting with me during competitions and all the times they held me during the toughest seasons of my life, I AM because they chose to believe in what could be.  Though my Daddy is on assignment in heaven now, I can still hear he and my mother saying, “Get Up!  You can beat this.  Nothing is impossible for you can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens you.”

My Brother (Ryan Wuerch) -  We fought, we played, we laughed, we plotted, we played pranks, and grew to see one another’s strengths in operation.  What a joy this season of life has become as we have, now, parntered to change the world of commerce as we know it with Solavei!   My heart is full of gratitude for he and my “sis”, Shawntel, for inspiring me daily to lead a revolution of change that will give opportunity for millions to experience financial change.

Zig Ziglar – Everyone has mentors who help form who they are in life.  Since a child, my father spoon fed me the motivational books of Zig Ziglar.  By 18 it became a goal to meet him and by 27, I was sharing the stage and a season of life with the man I would grow to call “Pops”.  Today, he is no longer storming the stages of grandeur that were once home to his talents and passion for others.  Instead, his stage of impact lies in the hearts of leaders like myself, who will gratefully carry the same message of God’s love to the marketplace and world.

The People I Call “MY FRIENDS” – Whether you are family, associates, FB peeps, Twitter pals or business partners in my life, I am deeply grateful for the joy of knowing that your alignments have helped me stay on assignment for 43 years now!  (Wow!  Did I just admit that?)   From my infancy, I can see God’s strategic hand in the alignments of my life.  You have prepared me for such a time as this, and I truly believe our biggest days are still ahead.   Some of you have been in my life for a season, some for a reason, and some for a lifetime, but ALL of you have been on PURPOSE and are valued in my eyes more than you could ever know.  Thank you for believing in me and celebrating this special season together.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Slaying Your Giants

This morning I awoke early with a sense of expectancy in my heart.  It was like an overwhelming hunger for something more than I have seen or heard.  As I walked downstairs in the silence of my home, my family rested sound asleep.  Despite the silence, however, I could hear in such a magnified way, the sounds around me.  It was as though I had been awakened….truly awakened.  My senses were heightened and my hunger insatiable.

Alone in the dark, I began to sing…..quietly at first and then passionately.  I sang a worship song that my Grandfather used to have us sing in his church when I was just a child.  “Jesus…Jesus….Jesus…There’s just something about that name….”

Fighting Giants Bigger Than Yourself

The memory of my Grandfather, praying a blessing over me as I knelt before him at church one Sunday, was indelibly engrained into my memory and now, suddenly, was made vivid before me.  It was that day, that he spoke a blessing over my life and my talents, that I knew my life would leave an imprint on the earth.  He said, “You are anointed to speak the truth.  You will go where others will not go and do what has never been done.  You will fight giants bigger than yourself and remember that the battles you will face will not be yours, but God will fight them for you.”

I will never forget one of the last things he said before his passing.  As I knelt again, years later, at the feet of his frail body, he looked at me and said, “Staci, I like my preaching like I take my coffee.  Give it to me straight.”

With that thought in mind, today, I begin blogging again with the heart to set the record straight.  Why do I do what I do?  It is because I KNOW my life is a gift from God and what I do with it will be my gift of gratitude back to Him.  I seek to do the IMPOSSIBLE, because I believe that if what you seek to do has already been done then you are living in the shadow of other men.  But if you brave to go to uncharted territories, then you must have faith in what is unknown, unseen, and follow a voice that is BIGGER than you, WISER than you, and ABLE to fight battles that you may otherwise, coward away from.

Fighting For A Cause Bigger Than Yourself

Today, I sit here at 3:54 a.m. praying for YOU.  If you are reading this, then somehow, you are near me, whether by internet or by location.  If you are with me, you, too, are being called to a place of heightened awareness.  It is time to wake up.  I mean REALLY wake up!  I urge you to remember the reason you decided to do what you do.  Is merely for personal gain?  If so, then you will be distracted by the things around you that are elementary and temporary.  If you are fighting for a cause that is BIGGER than you, then you will keep that image of that goal indelibly before you, knowing that momentary pain may result in the long-term gain of others.

No great leader has EVER accomplished greatness with ease, simplicity or pain-free existence.  Instead, their lives, their businesses, and their accomplishments were forged on the anvil of adversity, where their leadership was seen, not by the days of ease and luxury, but instead, their greatest days were illuminated by the backdrop of adversity that created a storybook of victory over defeat.

While Others See Opposition, Leaders See Potential Victory

Again remembering my grandfather, I remember learning about the story of David and Goliath.  David, a mere shepherd boy, walked directly into the line of opposition, surrounded by arrogant Philistines and cowardly Israelites.  Seeing the BIGGNESS of the opposition and the weakness of his own people, DAVID woke up, not just physically, but something on the inside said, “I was born for such a time as this.”   His senses were heightened and his faith secure that day he chose to take on the BIG GUYS.  While others backed away in fear at the mere size of Goliath, David saw nothing but the result such a victory could bring for His people.  While the Israelite soldiers, backed away in fear, frustration, and fatigue, David rose to the challenge of his opposition.  He knew in his heart that it was HIS TIME and that field of war was HIS PLACE.  More importantly, seeing that others were unwilling to fight the battle, he knew he was THE ONE to take the big guys down.

He wasn’t trained in much, but he did know 3 things.  One…he could protect sheep and he could protect people.   Seeing God’s people in a weakened state, even though they claimed to be warriors, David understood his role to protect and provide.  Two…David had already killed a lion and a bear in his past, so he knew how to fight the big guys with more than physical strength, for David was a worshiper, backed by a powerful God.   And three….David knew his skills.  Picking up 5 smooth stones, he pulled out his slingshot with ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY and verbally declared war on the Philistines, followed by ACTION that resulted in victory.

The prize?  David was given leadership, love, financial increase, respect, and his own measure of rule that would one day make him king.

NOW Is Your Time

Isn’t it about time you, too, wake up to realize that the battle you are fighting, though big and daunting, very well, may be the battle you are called to fight that will lead you to your greatest place of victory?   NOW is your time.  THIS is your place. And YOU are the one to boldy go where others fear of going and doing the IMPOSSIBLE.

As you approach today, take courage in knowing that your past has prepared you for this season of life.  You were born for such a time as this.  You have experienced much to equip you to be the leader and voice of hope to the world around you.  I challenge you today to rise to the challenge of your adversary and use everything you’ve got to boldly go where others fear of going.

And, even as I write this to you, I can hear my Grandpa tell me , as well, “NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give up!”

New-School Advertising

Gone are the days of being DOOPED into believing that what you see on TV is what drives culture.  People are waking up to realize that they don’t need BILLIONS of dollars of American Dollars wasted on advertising.  Together, with my family, and other leading executives around the nation, we have launched a new company, called Solavei that is changing the way commerce is done and shifting those dollars back into the hands of the people.  We are taking on the BIG guys and determined to create an economic shift on behalf of the people.

Why am I willing to put my brand upon this one?   Because I BELIEVE it will make a difference.

New Wine….New Wine Skin

There is a scripture that says that you can’t put NEW wine into old wine skin. Many people launch out in life wanting to have a fresh start, new beginning, or clean breakaway from old habits. Unfortunately, they have a LOT of “want” to, but their “CAN” do is limited because they are trying to put NEW ideas, NEW concepts, and NEW HOPE into old processes, old companies, and old methods.

As we launch our new company, Solavei, we are making sure that we implement the BEST processes, social graph, tracking systems, corporate leadership, and never-before-seen technology, so that we create an entirely NEW WINE SKIN for the millions of people that will soon become members of the Solavei Revolution. CEO, Ryan Wuerch, who happens to be my brother, is a leader I have watched break barriers since he was just a child. No matter how impossible the feat he was trying to accomplish appeared, or how many people judged his methods, I have watched, firsthand, as God has used this man to revolutionize systems, perspectives, processes, and break records in whatever he has put his heart and hand to do.

Ryan was raised by our father, Ron Wuerch, a pastor, entrepreneur and philanthropist, with the calling to act on behalf of those less fortunate. While the world stands paralyzed by economic challenges, I am confident that the same brother that I fought with as a child, has been raised, equipped, and seasoned “for such a time as this” to help save a nation in distress and create an economic revolution that will make a difference for millions.

When you see the amazing accolades on RyanWuerch.com, you will see that he is no stranger to being able to create tremendous profits for Billion Dollar Giants in the mobile industry. But even with such success comes a deeper desire for something greater. You’ve heard me say it in previous blogs….”BEYOND SUCCESS COMES THE DESIRE FOR SIGNIFICANCE”. Ryan resigned from his last company, Motricity, that he started in the game-room of his house. Why? Because he deeply wanted to do something more than simply pad the pockets of corporate leaders, investors, and the institutions of big business. I personally believe the passing of my father, less than two years ago, inspired an epiphany that moved Ryan to say, “Was this what I have been created for, or is there more?”

Having been raised as missionary kids, we know that we are here to do more than make money and buy toys. We recognize that our extreme talents and leadership abilities must be used to create a NEW way of thinking, innovating, and benefiting the people of the world.

And so….SOLAVEI was born to create an economic revolution that will turn the world upside down as it challenges the processes, mentalities, and methodologies of traditional business today. By creating a new type of Social Media platform, Solavei will begin to do what other Social Media companies, like Facebook, have never done…MOVE THE PROFITS from advertisers into the hands of the people…the network…the ones making the ship stay afloat in the first place.

SOLAVEI’S GOAL:

Be the first and fastest company to put at least a BILLION dollars back into the hands of the people. While Groupon and other companies set their goal to become the FASTEST company to hit a BILLION dollars in sales, SOLAVEI wants to redefine SUCCESS by putting a BILLION dollars back into the hands of its people, the members, who make the world go around.


Stay tuned for more NEW WINE…NEW WINE SKIN as tomorrow I will show you how we are celebrating Solavei by recognizing the achievements of others!

Solavei Mountain Expedition (Pt. 3 – The Summit)

WE DID IT! We made it up to the top of the 6000+ mountain and despite fatigue, hunger, and pain, every single one of our Solavei team members made it to the SUMMIT! “NO MEMBER LEFT BEHIND” That is our team motto at The Empowered Living Network (www.empoweredliving.biz) and a motto we should all have in life. Like Zig Ziglar has said, “You can have EVERYTHING you want in life, if you will just help enough other people get what they want in life.”

Watch this video of our Summit Experience:

And now in Spanish…(I don’t actually know what he said, but it sounded AWESOME from the mountain top!)

Solavei Climbing Expedition (Pt. 1)

Mountain goats with bad attitudes can’t stop us from going to the top!!!!   This past weekend, our family took a journey up to the top of a 6000 ft mountain, beyond the clouds into an place many will never go.  Watch this video and see how a pack of aggressive and angry GOATS almost kept us from seeing the top of the mountain!

 

Beyond Success Lies SIGNIFICANCE

Today, I am sitting in the beautiful Dominican Republic on the FirstFitness Nutrition’s Dream Vacation.  Twelve of our top Distributors are with me as a result of their achievement in our company.  To our great team of dedicated wellness coaches and business builders, winning a Dream Vacation to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, is an achievement of SUCCESS that others dream about winning.

This year’s Dream Vacation, however,  had an added component that we’ve never done before, making this our first ever LEGACY Dream Vacation in partnership with the Children’s Hunger Fund.  Recognizing the power of leaving a lasting legacy, I asked our CEO, Nigel Branson, if we could add a day onto the trip to move beyond the feeling of SUCCESS and offer a life-changing time of significance for our Distributors.  And, so yesterday, under sunny skies and extremely warm temperature, our Distributors set aside their tropical drinks by the pools of luxury, and at 7 a.m., loaded up onto a small bus and drove four hours into one of the most poverty stricken areas of this region.

As we began the journey, I prayed to myself, “Dear God, let today be filled with your presence.  Use our lives to be a source of hope, health and healing to the children and families we will reach. And let this experience FOREVER change the lives of our Distributors so they will sense an even greater purpose behind what we do as entrepreneurs, and the bigger meaning behind why we should do it.”

Our first stop was a small church that was also the local school.  They had a special presentation for us and our hearts were touched by the faces of the children, looking to us with bewilderment.  With American visitors, usually comes gifts and surprises so they were “lit up” with excitement and anticipation.  They sang to us, recited scriptures they had memorized, and welcomed us in their languages of Spanish, French and Creole.  

As I, along with all of our Distributors, sang “Jesus Loves Me”, the smiles of the children were so big and, though they couldn’t understand our words in English, they could feel our love.

After our time together, we went outside and played with the toys we brought for them.  From hoola hoops, jump ropes and baseballs, to the masterful coaching of Brian Fox teaching the boys to play basketball with a Nerf hoop, the joy of simple pleasures was seen in all of our eyes and felt in our hearts.

From there, we moved to where these children lived, and our hearts were so profoundly impacted.  Indeed, it was a culture shock to all of us. Words would be inadequate to try to explain the poverty we witnessed, as our American lifestyle is so far removed.  We saw shacks made from scraps, surrounded by trash, flies and waste, but to these families, it was shelter, provision and HOME.   I could see the tears continually welling up in the eyes of the Distributors as it was a surreal and life-changing moment of time for all of us.

After a day of delivering food packs, prayer, hope, and sometimes just a hug, we knew this was the RICH life – that life where we’re blessed enough to be a blessing to others.

Why do we work so hard in our own country?  Is our greatest sign of achievement the titles we possess or the cars we drive?  Is it the material possessions we accumulate?  Or is there a larger and grander reason for the blessing of success? What if the real test in life is our ability to move beyond success into a life of lasting significance?
