Amy Stone is the CEO of Speakers & Artists International, Inc. Amy is a multi-facetted and visionary spiritual guide and teacher. Her colleagues and clients call her an "inspirational and mystical psychologist". Her talent lies in her ability to focus on the individual’s core identity and bring out truth and authenticity hidden behind the veil of unwanted conditioning. She’s a student of life and is passionate about studying and exploring the human condition. As she puts simply "A life with no confidence and trust is not worth living. Abundance, satisfaction and success are our birth right, not a dream that sadly never gets realized."
Her passion for tearing off the masks to reveal the authentic self in all of us began in childhood taking care of her deaf sister, as well as a stroke in 2002, which totally change the course of her life, as she had to discover new and unexplored pathways to complete her full recovery, which led to countless visions and revelations to surrender to her destiny.
"Speaking as a committed empowerment coach and talent developer, helping and encouraging individuals to get in touch with their true potential has become a passion and an essential part of my life. It has led me onto transformational paths and journeys unimaginable had I not stayed focused in that direction.
There's an actor and an artist of life in each and every human being; hence every person can “design” and “create” who they aspire to be no matter what the current environment allows. By focusing primarily on design and creative issues, we can literally generate for ourselves a new freedom to be and gracefully reclaim both our power and vision.
We offer a step by step tangible and thorough approach which helps develop not only gifted and creative professionals but happier and freer individuals." ~ Eric and Amy Stone
