"We had chosen it as our theme for the 2021 Grow Retreat and so as we were marketing the retreat throughout 2020, we were talking about the value of creating an impact in your marketing, with your sales, with your people, etc. The more we chatted about it, the more I realized that this has been a common thread through my entire life as an entrepreneur: helping small business owners create their greatest impact.
"After all, this is a huge part of what we get into business to do, right? Make an impact! On our own lives, on our families, on our communities. And the impact we make extends so far beyond our immediate circle. By creating an environment that gives our team space to step into their greatest self and love their job and their work, we create happier, healthier employees. Those employees then go home and are happier and healthier in their interactions with their families and those around them. So by lifting up our immediate team, we create the ability for them to do the same to those around them!
"Most importantly, as I was realizing I was truly obsessed with impact, I also realized that Entrepreneur's don't need someone who is going to guess at what needs to be done and frankly, we don't need someone to tell us what to do! We're a pretty damn smart bunch and we're pretty good at knowing what we need to do. But sometimes we do need someone who has done this a few times, can see the path when we're a little overwhelmed and lost, and can be counted on to stand strong and keep us moving forward! And I realized that, after a decade of studying psychology off and on and working with thousands of business owners, I had an amazing grasp on how to create an impact!
"And the Impact Authority was born!"

The speaker who will make an impact on your audience!
Stephanie has been delivering powerful, motivational performances for more than two decades and is regularly invited to return as a speaker after audiences experience her enthusiasm and vigor from the front of the room.
In 2021, she brought the violin to the stage with her for the first time and received a standing ovation. Because music bypasses the conscious brain, Stephanie and "Honey" (her violin) can trigger recognition and understanding at a core level, enhancing long-term memory & implementation, truly creating an impact.
Stephanie's areas of expertise lie in the psychology of business: sales, marketing & people management. With more than a decade of studies in psychology behind her, Stephanie has developed an incredible understanding of how the human brain functions, and how to work within our limitations while leveraging our opportunities.
Best Selling Author
The author determined to transform the world!
In 2012 Stephanie looked around and realized quickly that like-creates-like. Without knowing it at the time, she'd honed in on the same concept that every great mind of the past century has discovered.
Stephanie took it a step further! In her book, Friend Power (published April 2015), she not only argues but successfully shows how the friends you choose determine every aspect of your future and if you want control, you'll be careful about who you choose as your friends!
A lifetime of passion, integrity & the indomitable spirit!
Stephanie Scheller is a recognized rising star who's passion and enthusiasm has impacted more than 3500 businesses in the past decade.
At 25 years old, she took an opportunity to implement the same systems & concepts she teaches to build a business from scratch in only four months, replaced her income from her job and took over as the full-time CEO of Scheller Enterprises, a sales training and consulting company dedicated to disrupting the way small business owners run their sales, marketing & people. Using Stephanie's psychology-based approach to sales and marketing, Scheller Enterprises quickly grew to be the largest, most-active sales training practice in Central Texas and began designing and hosting their own sales-training events in 2015. In 2016, Stephanie realized that, while she was passionate about supporting small business owners with their sales, her desires extended far beyond simply impacting sales. In 2017, Scheller Enterprises hosted their first business owners retreat and in 2018, rebranded to Grow Disrupt, a company dedicated to hosting events that provide real, actionable steps so small business owners can grow their businesses.
Stephanie continues to tap into her passions through music and art as she shares her stories of battling depression, anxiety and apathy to become a successful business owner, along with her knowledge of psychology and how it impacts everything in business to help others step into their greatest potential.
That passion is evident in every aspect of Stephanie and bursts through on the stage to bring life to any audience.
From a very young age Stephanie's military family taught her the value of following through with her word and being true to herself. From the beginning of her business career, Stephanie has always been dedicated to ensuring her entire company lives in integrity and their word is bond.
Knowing that she couldn't stand in her truest, authentic self without knowing all aspects of herself, Stephanie dedicated extensive time to learning more about herself, what she believes, what fuels her joy, and where her passions lie. She rediscovered her love for the violin, art and psychology and in 2021, she announced a new brand for her personal mission to inspire others to action and stepped into her role as the Impact Authority.
Stephanie fully embraces the value of integrity for her business and uses that to share transparently with her audiences. It's the transparent passion, the willingness to admit her own flaws and share her own stories with her audiences that allows Stephanie to connect so closely with hundreds of individuals at once from the front of the room.
With Stephanie at the helm, you always get what you are promised. You always get a honest, authentic experience with an incredible keynote or motivational speaker.
The Indomitable Spirit
While preparing to test for her first-degree black belt in Taekwondo, the entire class found the ability to dig deeper and push further than they had ever thought possible. At the end of the eight-hour test, as the instructors called for one final piece to the test: the stamina portion. In the midst of 60-seconds of continuous push-ups, Stephanie realized that the indomitable spirit that her instructors had harped on again and again was something only she could choose to bring to the front.
With a dedication to digging deep and producing results, despite the pain or the obstacles encountered, Stephanie guarantees the event of a lifetime for you and your attendees with her on the stage!
Effective as of July 8th, 2021 We have prepared this Privacy Notice to explain how, why, and when we collect data from you to provide targeted advertising services for our clients, and your rights in respect of this data. If you have additional questions please feel free to use the Contact Form at the bottom of this page. Visitors to this site may have a cookie placed in their browser by a third party provider (such as AdRoll) for targeted advertising purposes. We may collect some or all of the following information: IP Addresses, cookie identifiers, pixels, end-user website activity. This information is used exclusively by the algorithm of our provider & not available to us individually. Please note that this Privacy Notice does not apply to data we collect when you visit other Grow Disrupt sites including but not limited to www.GrowDisrupt.com or www.TheGrowRetreat.com We do not share, distribute or sell your information. We may collect the following information for the following purposes: Activity on Advertisers’ Digital Properties: This is data about your browsing activity on the Advertiser's website or application. For example, which pages you visited and when, what items were clicked on a page, how much time was spent on a page, whether you downloaded a white paper on a business to business (“B2B”) website, what items you placed into your online shopping cart, what products were purchased and the price of the products purchased. Device and browser information: This is technical information about the device or browser you use to access the Advertiser's Digital Property. For example, your device's IP address, cookie string data, operating system, and (in the case of mobile devices) your device type, and mobile device's identifier (such as the Apple IDFA or Android Advertising ID, and any other unique identifier that may be assigned to the mobile device). Ad data: This is data about the online ads we have served (or attempted to serve) to you. For example, how many times an ad has been served to you, what page the ad appeared on, and whether you clicked on or otherwise interacted with the ad. This data includes information about how well our clients’ ads and campaigns have performed, whether on our platform or on other platforms. Data from Advertising Partners: This is data that we lawfully receive from other digital advertising companies that we work with (“Advertising Partners”) to help us deliver ads to you and recognize you across browsers and devices. This may include pseudonymous advertiser identifiers (meaning identifiers that help identify your browser or device, but do not directly identify you as a person) which some Advertisers or other third party Advertising Platforms choose to share with us – for example, your "Customer ID" with an Advertiser, a pseudonymous identifier (such as a cookie) associated with a hashed version of your email address, or demographic data such as age range. We may work with our Advertisers and Advertising Partners to synchronize their unique, pseudonymous identifiers to our own to enable us to more accurately recognise a particular unique browser or device and the advertising interests associated with it. Shopping Information. Some Advertisers provide us with information about their customers’ shopping habits, including transactional information, product codes, and check-out activity (along with browsing information that we collect). This information may come from their websites or other transactional information they (or their service providers) maintain. We generally use this information to help us better target, personalize, and measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. Information We Receive in Our Corporate Capacity. We also collect information from our own customers and those who visit our website(s). To learn more about how we collect and use that information, please see our Website Privacy Notice. How We Use the Data We Collect We use this data to help our Advertisers identify and serve ads to you that are more relevant to you. We also use this data to operate, improve and enhance our services including enhancing the data points we or our Advertising Partners have about a particular user, browser, or device to serve the most relevant ads to you and, in turn, improve performance of an Advertiser’s ad campaigns. Specifically, we use this data for: Targeting: Selecting ads that are more likely to be relevant to you based on the interests previously associated with your device and the time of day you may be most interested in viewing these specific ads. For example, we may show you ads for your favorite shopping site (or similar sites we think you may like) during lunch or commute hours. Frequency capping: Making sure that you don't see the same ad too many times. Sequencing: If you are being served a sequence of ads, making sure we show you the right ad next in the sequence. Cross-device matching: Identifying different devices that are likely to be associated with you so that ads can be targeted, capped and sequenced across those devices, and so that campaign effectiveness can be measured and analyzed. For example, cross-device matching helps us NOT show you ads for the shoes you were looking at on your phone but already purchased on your tablet. Instead we’ll try to show you ads for an upcoming triathlon where you can put those shoes to work. It also helps us match devices so we can honor your opt-out choices across all devices we know are connected to the opted-out cookie. You may opt-out of being targeted in the above “cross-device” and “cross-channel” ways by employing the respective opt-out techniques we describe in the “Your Choices and Opting-Out of Targeted Ads” section below. Attribution: Monitoring when, where, and at what price we served certain ads on behalf of an Advertiser so that we can measure our influence on the marketing results of the Advertiser’s campaigns and overall marketing strategy. For example, being able to measure if a certain ad campaign (the ads shown and to whom they were shown) actually sold more soccer balls for ACME Soccer Ball Co. Reporting: Providing Advertisers insights into how their ads are performing and gain insights into their customers. Reporting may include ad metrics such as impressions, clicks, and conversions (however the Advertiser may define a “conversion” such as, for example, a sale or a white paper download, or a correlation to an actual or inferred sale, site visit or store visit). This data allows an Advertiser to determine if an ad is not performing well (customers are not clicking on it), so that the Advertiser will be able to see that data and update the ad (perhaps with a better deal!). With respect to specific cookie data, we limit reporting to cookie activity on the specific Advertiser’s website and which ads were shown, whether there was engagement with those ads. Conducting Our Corporate Operations. As to information we collect in our corporate capacity – our own B2B lists of customers and prospective customers – we use that information to conduct our business operations and communications. To Opt Out: On ads served by AdRoll for our advertisers, look for an AdChoices logo (the blue triangle) in the corner of the ad. Click the logo to learn more about interest-based advertising, who served the ad, and manage your ad options. You can also opt out of seeing personalized ads from AdRoll (and other companies) using the NAI opt out tool here. Please note you will still see ads even if you opt out, but they will not be personalized by AdRoll. For more information please see our privacy notice here.
