Overview

I’m Stacy Ennis, a best-selling author, ghostwriter, book coach, and speaker on a mission to help leaders clarify their ideas and harness their unique story to make an impact.

I’ve authored, coauthored, or ghostwritten 17 books, coached dozens of authors, and impacted thousands of people through speaking, training, coaching, and writing throughout my 13 years in business. My background includes ghostwriting for a Nobel Prize winner in medicine and leading as executive editor of Sam’s Club’s Healthy Living Made Simple, a publication that reaches around 11 million readers. I’ve trained leaders from Starbucks, The Boeing Company, Intuit, and more. My best-selling book, cowritten with Ron Price, is Growing Influence: A Story of How to Lead with Character, Expertise, and Impact. I have a master’s in writing and editing and a bachelor’s in writing.


I’ve been obsessed with writing and books since second grade. As a child, I learned the power of writing and reading as a tool of influence, and knew my life path would somehow converge with the written word. Fast forward to today—I’ve worked with hundreds of impact-makers, lived on four continents, and had two incredible kids. And my vision has never faltered: I am meant to help people share their ideas through writing.


Today, I live my dream every single day living in Portugal with my stay-at-home-dad husband and two kids. And let me tell you, it's better than I imagined.
